My sister Adriana and her beautiful baby Evelyn are visiting from Utah. And our mom is here and we are having a blast! My mom bought the babies matching jammies. Don't they look adorable!

Father's Day 2011

Poor Jared!!! He is so loved and appreciated in our house, yet with our sad celebration this Father's Day it may be hard to tell. Blake is up every 1 1/2 hours at night and I am barely getting by on the day to day stuff. So needless to say Jared got no gifts or anything significant from anyone. It doesn't help that Father's Day is in the summer so I don't have school teachers to pick up the slack. Saturday night the kids scrambled to make him cards and coupon books and I cooked his favorite foods (quiche and strawberry pie) and that was about it. He even got up Sunday morning with the baby because I was dead to the world. I couldn't even give him the day off of helping because we are at the stage where someone works and runs things (me), while the other person deals with the baby (Jared). But we love him sooo much! I truly couldn't be even a decent mother without the love and support he gives me. Jared, you're the best!!!!

Neighborhood Party

Every summer our neighborhood throws a party to kick off summer. It works out great because it is in our cul-de-sac and the bounce house gets set up on our grass. So we get out our chairs and sit on the driveway while the kids run around and have fun. It is catered and has face painting, the bounce house, and live music. We have a blast!

Rylie got her face painted as a mermaid.

Stacie and her girls came up for the party. Here is Rylie with cousins Alexis and Katie.
