A Wonderful Weekend

This past weekend was fantastic. Our friends Amie, Brian and Madisyn came for a long weekend visit! It was nice to have more than just two days to hang out. We fit in a ton of walking, eating, and shopping! We got to spend quality times with friends and family which made for a great holiday weekend.

Reese got her second tooth this weekend. Here she is sitting on the deck at Grandpa and Grandma Janet's house. Oh yes, and Reese started saying, "dadadadadada..." It's so cute... if only she knew what that meant!

Noah loved to play with all the rocks in the yard.

Madisyn and her Mommy. Cute as can be.

Reese's first ride on the boat with Grandpa in the pond.

Reese can't get enough of her Auntie Carissa. She is so glad she is home to stay.

Madisyn is all smiles since she gets to hang out with her BFF, Reese.

Reese loves the swing... especially when Daddy rides next to her!

Reese and Madisyn had some quality moments just looking at each other, talking, and laughing... just a little preview of all that is to come!

Thanks so much for coming to visit! We had a great time!

A Special Date

Happy Anniversary to Us! It's hard to believe that it has only been 2 years since our wedding day, one of the greatest days of our life. I have given everyone a little view of our history (our 7 years together). I am the so lucky to have found the perfect husband for me and one amazing Daddy! Cheers to 2 years and all of the fabulous years to come.

Swim Class

Reese joined Noah at swim class. They go on Tuesday and Thursdays with 3 other little kids. They seem to really enjoy it!

On our way to day #2 of swim class.

Enjoying some time with Mommy in the pool.

Noah really loves class. He teaches Reese the ropes!

Reese got to spend some time with Uncle Mark in the pool!

Now that Reese can sit up, Noah and Reese play so well together.

My Half Birthday

Happy Half Birthday to Me! I went to the doctor yesterday and weighed in at 20 lbs 2 ozs and am now 29 inches tall. I am still off the charts, but my rapid growth is slowing... maybe it's because I like to roll a lot now and attempt to play. I got some shots that I did not enjoy, but if you ask me, I recovered pretty quick. Other than that, my half birthday was great. I hung out with Noah and my Auntie Carissa. Have a nice day peeps! Love, Reese

The weekend started with a little surprise on Friday morning... after all that drooling, we can finally see a tooth. One of Reese's bottom teeth has finally broken through the skin... woo hoo. How exciting! She has also learned this interesting new face. I think cousin Noah may have taught it to her!
The rest of the weekend was all about our wonderful little sister, Carissa! After 6 long years of studying at Clarke College, she finally graduated with her DOCTORATE of Physical Therapy. Here we are in Galena for lunch.Next we attended Carissa's pinning ceremony.Our hotel had a water park inside. Reese had her first adventure in a pool. She didn't love it and didn't hate it. She just liked to sit in the water. (Tuesday starts swimming, so maybe she will learn how to splash!)Noah is a champ in the water. Now that he can walk, he really makes his way around.Saturday morning began with Carissa's hooding ceremony. She is 1 of only 7 that graduated with her degree.The day concluded with Carissa graduating and receiving her diploma. She is now officially a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We are so very proud of her. She worked so hard! We are so glad we got to share in her special moment.
