I have so many pictures that just need recorded. So here is the first installment of my random life moments. Jed took Drew on a campout the night before his birthday, so the girls decided to get out and enjoy the chilly spring outdoors too. We went and got sandwiches from a restaurant and then took them to a park and enjoyed some girl time. ;)
My niece Audrey turned four and invited us to her party. I didn't get any pictures of the birthday girl while we were there.....but I got this cute shot of my Dad. :)
We've got a cute little neighbor girl down the road from us we got to babysit. Claire jumped right in to help and read her a book when she was sad. Too sweet.
Claire is obsessed with ipads, smartphones, etc. Seriously. We've had some pretty serious tantrums and experiences with that little one. Like the time we were having family prayer and Claire noticed, during the prayer, that the ipad was on the couch. Well, needless to say she lost interest in family prayer and got the ipad, and when we all said "amen" she looked at us with a "deer in the headlights" look holding the ipad and said "uh-oh." :) So anyway, sometimes late at night Claire will join us as we watch Studio C:
Sorry this ones nasty, but lest I ever forget the fact we have frequent recreational toilet cloggings:
This summer Lily has really discovered her love for worms. She loves them. We had been working really hard on the sprinkler system this spring and of course ran into several. She has made all types of worm houses, which unfortunately usually ends up killing the worms. She saves and collects all sorts of garbage to create these houses, and then can sometimes leave their inhabitants in interesting places:
Do you spot the worm??
We pump a lot of pizza out of our oven here at our house. That is mainly our weekend tradition during the cooler months of the year, but man oh man we sure love us some pizza.
Seeing it pictured just reminds me how much we love our Friday night pizza, and we're kind of missing it because we camp most weekends in the summer.
Claire was doing her idea of helping while I made some chocolate covered strawberries:
We've started a relatively new tradition with the girls of Jed's side of the family. The husbands take care of the kiddos and we girls head out for some good ol' bonding time. This year we headed over to Boise and saw Wicked, it was amazing and a lot of fun.
We also ate. And shopped. And ate. And talked. And ate. And maybe ran out of gas on the side of the highway..... :) Good times.
With four girls around these parts we sure get a lot of this going on:
Lots of dancing, and dress up, and fun!
We planted our pots with flowers this spring, and Claire and Lily have been the main waterers.
Don't break the ice was Claire's game of choice earlier this year.
A different style of dress up:
A springtime trip to the park while the others were at school:
Claire a little unsure of standing next to this snake dude.....the library had a real stuffed animal exhibit, we checked it out after storytime.
Daddy dancing with his girls.
They eat this stuff up I tell you.
So much fun, I'm so glad Jed takes the time to do this with the girls every now and again!
Here's a shot of Drew's 4th grade school program. Find him, I dare ya! Hahaha. It was a great program. I stole Madelyn out of her school to come and watch. That is always fun. :)
And it is summer now, and we're totally loving it. And by the time I get around to recording all about it, school will be back in session. Rgh.
I don't even want to think about it! :)
