The Farm







Brinley's school had there last field trip last week. We went to The Farm and Thanksgiving Point. The kids had a lot of fun and they got to ride the pony and a wagon ride. Brinley got to feed a duck and it bit her! They also both fed a goat. Ellie had fun seeing the animals but was sick of it by the end, see picture of her throwing a fit!

Happy 1st Birthday Ellie Mae!









Ellie is 1 already. How? I know she was just a teeny tiny baby the other day. Now she is a little stinker who runs around all over the place and gets into EVERYTHING! She no longer crawls, her favorite thing to do it empty out the drawers in the kitchen, the rubber spatula is her favorite toy. She is still obsessed with Mickey and Minnie (I am DYING to take her to Disneyland!!)And she just adores her Daddy! She loves to give kisses and gets excited to "go". She is very smart and knows what a lot of things are, if you tell her to get the remote she knows where it is and brings it to you! She is saying a few more words, shy, minnie, baby, mommy, daddy, she has been able to say mama and dada, but can now say the EE. Shes got her top 4 teeth and still just the 3 on bottom. Back to 2 naps a day for some reason? Still to bed at 7 or 730 and up at 7. She is at such a fun age right now and were really enjoying watching her learn! She is little miss attitude I do have to say! She also knows how to get her softie and binkie out of her crib by herself, we normally only let her have them at bed time, but now she has them with her non-stop, they are her comfort! So yesterday she woke up and had her favorite breakfast, a waffle and banana. She got 2 good naps in, played all day and then we went to Chuck E Cheese. She LOVED the mechanical characters, even though they barely even worked! She went on what little kid rides they had and we let her run wherever she wanted. Her favorite thing was the bug splat game where the buttons on the ground light up. We couldnt keep her off of it. She got to eat pizza for the first time, she loves mushrooms and olives. Then we came home and let her open her presents, she got 5 pairs of jammies and a new dress. Sorry Ellie, but as girl #3 theres not much left to get you! Then she got to eat her very first brownie, and she thought it was fabulous. Overall I think she had a great day even though she had no idea what was going on! Happy Birthday big girl and soon to be big sister! We love you so much! :)

Berklee in 3D!







So I should have gone and had this done about 2-3 weeks ago, but kind of spaced it! She was SO squished up in there that they could barely get anything good of her face. She is head down and should stay that way, so thats great! They said she has TONS of hair, but you can only see it in the 2D pictures. She looks just like the other girls from what I can tell, and was being stubborn just like them and didnt feel like cooperating! I am 33 weeks and 1 day, so we have 41 more days until she is here! June 27th is our induction date! I cant wait! :)

Mother's Day program



Brinley's preschool had a Mother's Day program last week for just the moms, no dads and no siblings. It was SO cute and sweet, they sang a bunch of cute songs and letter songs they have learned! Brinley was not shy at all in front of everyone and sang her little heart out! They had some fruit and treats after and the kids gave the moms a little card and poem they made and a cookie flower. I didnt get many pictures since I video taped it!

Ellie's 1st birthday party!!









We had Mother's Day and celebrated Ellie's 1st birthday with Brad's family on Sunday. It was fun, but the weather sucked and my house is just too small to have so many people in 1 area!! We BBQ'd and had yummy treats! I made Ellie a strawberry smash cake and she loved the frosting, the cake not so much. She started playing peek-a-boo while she was covered in frosting and after the tub had a rash all over her face where the frosting was! But it went away in about 1 hour. She got lots of cute clothes, jammies, shoes, DIAPERS!! (yes!) and money for Disneyland!! Thanks everyone for the gifts!!

Field Trip!






We went to the zoo for Kensi's kindergarten field trip, I chaparoned, but luckily so did a ton of other parents so it was just the 2 of us in our group! My friend Shea's daughter Brynlee is in the morning class so the 4 of us hung out together for the day! The girls had a blast and the weather was actually decent! I cant believe the school year is almost over and Kensi will be a 1st grader!!
