Wicked 2.0

This was the second time my very sweet mom took the girls to Wicked.  It is my very favorite musical of all time and I loved it so much! We went out to dinner at the Blue Lemon before the show and it was delish.  I love hanging with my sisters and mom.  Some of the boys paid their own way and joined us too.

The whole group, minus my dad.
 
 Did someone say Jazz hands!?

2nd Grade

I shed a tear last night that summer is over and school is starting.  It just goes by too fast.  Shelby's bus driver came 15 minutes earlier then he said he would so I wasn't ready!  I made him wait until I snapped a picture though.  She was excited and had been asking for days to go back to school.  I miss her terribly already but I know she will do great.

Chloe WALKS!!

video
Chloe is FINALLY walking.  She took her first steps a week from yesterday but it has taken me this long to actually get a video of it. She is such a stinker though, she refuses to walk most of the time and never if you pull out a camera!  She took quite a few steps yesterday but it's definitely on her own terms.

A week of FUN!!

Tuckers cousin's daughter Samantha came to stay with us for a whole WEEK! The kids were in heaven. She flew up on Monday(by herself) and we met her at the airport. We had a bunch of fun things that we did. We went to the splash park on Monday night. On Tuesday I had some of my friends over in the backyard and we set up a bunch of pools and let the kids play for a while.  On Wednesday we went to the Zoo with my BFF Jana and her son, Dax.

 I loved this polar bear.  He was so cute.
 Of course Shelby found the snake to ride on the carousel.

 Chloe and mama

 I thought this was so sweet.  Keaton thinks that Dax is his best friend so he was SO excited to see him.

Wednesday night Samantha baby-sat for us while Tucker and I went out to dinner.  It was her first time and she did SO good. On Thursday we went to the movie Ice Age 4.  I didn't see a single bit of it.  Chloe was fussy before the movie even started so I left Samantha in charge of the kids while I sat with Chloe in the foyer.  She was so happy to have a huge space to crawl around in.  On Friday my mom took everyone(except Alison and her kids...we missed you guys) to Cherry Hill.  I love Cherry Hill!
 Morgan and Aves
 Keaton loved to steer the pirate ship.

 I adore this pic of Alysia taking Izzy down the slide.



On Saturday night we had to give Samantha back to her mom and dad.  We had such a great time and we loved having her!
