What is going on this summer!

Well this summer Brady is working like normal and I am teaching one boot camp class. I am also watching a little boy named Brady over here on Wednesday and then the rest of the weekdays I am watching the sweetest little girl named Natalie at her house. Natalie and Addisyn have so much fun together. Addisyn adores her and Natalie really likes her too. Every week is different, like this week we are there from 7-9 AM and then I pick her up at 3-5 PM. So I know she really loves the girls cause she was so concerned yesterday when I picked her up and I did not have my girls(they stayed at home with Daddy and napped). She really wanted to go get them and then she kind of just tuned me out and watched TV. I felt good cause I know she likes my girls but sad cause she must not think I am fun. Anyway, I need to get pic of them them together cause Addisyn loves her "work". The only bad thing is we have to leave here at 6:30 so they have to wake up super early and the weekends you know they still wake up super early.
So we decided to put the in the same room 2 nights ago. It is crazy but like everything else we are giving it the 3 day rule. Morning one Addisyn woke up at 5:45 yelling , "Cambry are you there, wake up!" I was not that upset cause I was already up for work but gosh it was early. This morning they slept til had to wake them.
We are not doing a mural in the girls room except for a few trees. Here is a pic of them. I think the turned out super cute. They are not done yet but here is what they look like so far. I have a whole bunch of items coming in for there room this week so I am excited. I think it should be ready in the next couple of weeks. But we have to get Cambry into a big girl bed to see what everything will look like in its place. I hope to have her in a bed by the end of the summer.

Addisyn does her "work" and a big "ouch"

Addisyn has been doing schoolwork lately. She really loves it and is very smart.

Cambry had her first big ouchie! I felt so bad for her. I feel bad for saying how it happened. She was climbing the ladder on the bunk beds and fell and banged her head. I normally am right there but we were a few steps away and just missed her. We normally take down the ladder and will not forget to do it again.

We are trying to stay cool!!! It is so hot here.

Pizza Family Fun Night


So now that the girls are getting older we are starting traditions. Pizza night has been around for awhile on Fridays but now we make our own every Friday and it is super fun. The girls both help out. I am going to try and find some ways to add veggies everyone likes and maybe even make a homemade wheat dough and maybe try and make the sauce. Anyway, a great time is had by all and if you say to Addi, it is Pizza Family she will scream Fun Night.

I love it.

Happy Father's Day

I am so lucky to have an amazing husband and Father. I ask Addisyn who she likes the best(immature I know) and she always, "Daddy, Cambry likes you the best." She tries to make me feel better by saying Camby is mine but hey that is ok. I know they love me and I know they love Brady. He is the Dad that will always be there for them and will help them live a great life for God. He will be a great provider and teach them to love God beyond anything else. I am so glad I found my soul mate. Cheesy I know but true. We of course have quarrels here and there but who does not. Anyway, He is the best Dad and the type of Dad anyone would want to have!!!

Summer Time and New Beds

We are re-doing the girls room this summer. I hope to have Cambry in a bed by the end of the summer. As of now Addisyn is sleeping on the top bunk of the new bunk beds but when Cambry is ready to go into a big girl bed, I will separate them and they will be two twin beds. After a long search in trying to find the bunk beds I wanted, they still were not the right ones. I wanted ones that when you unstacked them, they would be the same height but they are still 1 1/2 inches difference. Hopefully I am the only one who will notice. I have also been on a hunt for bedding. I found some and it should arrive on Thursday. I hope it is what I have in mind. We are doing a garden theme with lots of butterflies and flowers and a white picket fence all the way around the room. It is going to be a slow project so I will post when we finally complete the project.
We went to Sea World on Sunday(we get our money worth huh?) and Cambry was so cute, she fell asleep on Brady floating in the lazy river. Apparently it really is lazy! Addisyn played in the water park for 2 plus hours. We normally only stay at Sea World for 2 hours so we were there a long time for us. It was fun. Then when we got home my stomach started to hurt and sure enough, STOMACH BUG again. It was so bad. I got it last time it was going around SA and lost 6 pounds in 12 hours, this time it was only 3 pounds in 10 hours but it was still no fun! Back to being normal again though.
We are trying to get out and do fun things on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and one day during the weekend. That way we are at home some but my girls get a little crazy if we do not get out that much or maybe it is me who gets crazy! We went to Landa Park, Chuck e Cheese, Sea World, Library Time, parks, swimming and gymnastics. My girls are pretty lucky huh?
Well I am going to try and post more. My mom is out of town and am sure she is missing my girls so I will try to keep her posted with pics. Love you Mom!!!

PS One of the pics is Addisyn applying my blush! We also love to wash the car together.
Also I wanted to update on my wild child Cambry who can climb all the way up the ladder and stand on the top bunk and give me a heart attack. She also loves all the big slides at the park. She wants to be just like Addisyn. She is saying a lot of words! She can say Doggie, Daddy, Hallelujah, there it is, like it. She is also doing spins, jumping and happy feet. She is such a big girl now! I love this age.

Smokey Mountains

We headed off for 6 nights and 7 days without the kids to my best friend since 5th grade wedding. We were so busy, I did not have time to miss my girls. We left here at 6AM on Weds and flew to our layover spot in Memphis, TN and then flew to Indianapolis just to get in the car and drive 6 hours back to TN, this time Pigeon Forge. It was a long day but well worth it. Sometimes in life you meet friends that are there threw everything and when you have not seen each other in a very long time, it never seems that way. That is how Meghan and I are and have always been and will hopefully always be.
She married an amazing guy and they have a little 2 year old Macie who is the sweetest girl. They got married on Friday. Poor thing, it poured so hard on her wedding and it was supposed to be outside but they had to switch it to inside and they did not allow us to take any pictures. Weird I know. My camera battery was dead anyway, so I did not take nearly as many pictures as I wanted. But she looked stunning. She is 5'11, beautiful blond!!! Besides the rain, everything was great. She had 3 big cabins that had 9 rooms in it, 4 stories , it was really cool. She housed everyone for Friday and Saturday night. We were there Weds through Sunday.
We got there late Weds and just slept. Thursday we went to this really neat Adult museum with all kinds of neat things to do. It was fun. I beat Brady in rock climbing twice! That night we decorated the place and went to sleep. Friday morning we got up early and went horse back riding through the mountains. It was amazing. So relaxing and just a great time. Got my hair done and off to the wedding. It was a fun night, we did not go to bed til 5 AM. We had to be up and went white water rafting. It was pretty fun. I was hoping for it to be a bit more intense but it was still great. We crashed early on Saturday night.
Sunday we hit up the outlets and drove home. Meghan and Dustin left for the airport Monday and we had to drop them off at 4 AM. We left at 5 PM. Needless to say, sleep deprived, ate way too much but a WONDERFUL time. Just want I needed.
Enjoy these pictures, it was so beautiful.
