Adam and I were able to take a week long vacation this summer WITHOUT kids! My mom was so nice and offered to watch the girls for us. We were able to go up to Sandpoint with Adams Aunt and Uncle and Cousins. We pretty much spent our whole week on the boat and relaxing. I had never been there and it was so pretty!

Yes, it was pretty much Adam wake boarding and surfing and I was there to cheer him on. 

 Yes, that is me waking boarding. Heather and I tried it for a while and then decided tubing was more for us. I think my arms hurt for three days after this!
Just looking at these pictures makes me want to go back! We had so much fun and miss everyone. I cant wait until next year.

24th of July

I know I know! I have been the worst blogger ever. I am going to make up for it though. I am going to go back and blog everything since this is the closest thing I have to a journal or scrapbook.
    So we were in Idaho for the 24th of July. It is one of my favorite parades so we took the girls and my friend Charish and cute little Hawkins and went to the parade. They had some awesome floats and gave out TONS of candy. Of course the kids loved the popsicle's since it was so hot. Then when it was over we headed up to the fairgrounds for the festivities.

The girls loved riding the horses and the toys. The horses were pretty big compared to what they have rode in the past but they were all for it.

I think the end was Elsie's favorite part when we watched the horse races. She was screaming and yelling at them the whole time.

Happy 3rd Birthday Andie!

I still cant believe my little girl is 3! She had one heck of a birthday this year. She celebrated for a whole week and loved every minute of it. Grandma D couldnt make it to her birthday party so she came a few days early to celebrate. She took her to McDonalds and then to the mall to go shopping. She was spoiled rotten and still talks about how fun it was. Grandma even got her the Tangled dress she has been begging for.

Then on Andie's birthday we went and got milkshakes at Johnny B Goodes. She was pretty excited that everything was about her that day.
We then celebrated her birthday during the weekend while everyone was in town for Jared and Jess's wedding. Of course she was begging me to make her cake again this year and she has become obsessed with Hello Kitty. So yes I attempted a Hello Kitty cake. Luckily my friend Tressa was in town so together we tried to pull one out and I think we did a pretty good job. If nothing else she loved it and thats all that matters. She loved all of her presents and was loving all of the people that were there for her. Thanks everyone for everything. It meant a lot to me and to Andie.
