The Times They Are a Changin'

July's theme in the house has been change. We have had some major ones recently as we prepare for number three's arrival.  
A few weeks ago the girls left school they were attending and started doing a nanny share with another family that has two girls the same age. They have absolutely been loving it and so have we!

There has been make your own pizza and wear your pj's day. The girls made chef's hats then made their own pizza!

There have been group naps
There have been walks that involve cookies for treats

 There has been swim dates
We have also been cleaning the house top to bottom (with a little help) and working on finishing our to do list that we have been putting off
Life is good in the house and we are excited for the new addition that will be here soon!

Old Friend, Great Photographer...

One of my friends from elementary school is a photographer, a great one. I have always admired her work and have wanted her to take pictures of our little loves for some time now. Then a few weeks ago, on facebook she posted that she had one mini session left and we jumped at the opportunity. She is such a talented photographer and had the girls laughing and in the best mood the entire time.  We could not have been more pleased with how the pictures turned out. They captured my girls, in their element, running and playing and loving.

Holiday Weekend

The holiday weekend fun continued...
Saturday we decided to take the girls to the Aviation Museum to escape the heat

 After it cooled down we broke out the sidewalk chalk and bubbles and played on the front porch

After a water hose fight we came inside were someone found the Nutella

After Dallas's first movie we decided we should take Bliss to hers. Despicable Me 2 or New Pickle, as Dallas likes to call it, was a hit

Fourth of July 2013!

Warning: Long Weekend = Long Post...

What an incredibly fun extra, extra long weekend we got this Fourth of July. The girls were home the first part of the week with their Granna & daddy and they had SO much fun! Dallas spent an entire day with just her, and dear old dad. Going to breakfast, the office and to see her first movie (Monsters University). She walked in and told him "daddy, dat a really big TV!"
 Ma-maw joined us for the neighborhood parade fun! The girls were so excited to see her and both had to sit in her lap
 Made in the U.S.A.
Kids parade
Waiting for the "big" parade to begin... say cheeeeessssseeeeee

It doesn't get more Fourth of July than this... Red, White & Blue and watermelon
 Big Momma and her baby
Daddy and his girls
 Well deserved winner of the best float
After the parade was over we packed up and headed out to celebrate Emma & America's birthday
