Some updating...

This summer's been a busy one so I haven't been updating my blog very often. I am going to cram all the pictures from the past week and a half or so into one post-be prepared.

Kristin and I took the kiddos to a local concert series in our neighborhood town center a couple weeks back. The kids loved the music. It was actually pretty good-the lead singer was a 70 year old woman, jamming on the guitar. I was pretty impressed-she was good and pretty hip. The kids danced and hopped around and had a blast.

Taking a break

Oh boy-Cole stealing a kiss, you better watch it little man

Mam-o made us these adorable cookie people and sent them up from California, in the shape of all our family members. Sydney thought they were pretty neat-o, and delish too! Thanks Mam-o! Check out my bikini...
Sydney's still potty trained, woo hoo! She had two accidents in the beginning but has had none since. She always tells us when she needs to potty or poop, and sometimes just goes and tells us afterwards. I have to say I don't miss smelly diapers AT ALL. And in a few more months it all begins again...

The potty training uniform-t-shirt and Minnie Mouse undies. The hat, purse and band aid over a non-existent owie are optional.

Sydney and baby Jakey had their hair cuts done together last week-because a couple that gets their hair cut together, stays together. No, but really she is still in love with Jakey and keeps talking about sharing her cupcake with him at her birthday party in two weeks.

Jakey-who I need to stop calling baby Jakey since he just turned one
Check out these bangs-you know you need to cut your kid's hair when they tell you they need a haircut

Cute! We decided to treat the girls to a manicure. Lucky girls, I think I was 19 before I ever had my nails done.
Sydney chose the hot pink
I'm not sure what I did to deserve this look, but I have about five pics of Samantha with the same expression for me...
The kiddos
The girls posing at Jake's birthday party
The birthday boy just loves his hat

mmm...cake I love this picture of Lisa and Jakey
Sydney has been scared to death of this "ferocious" dog Lilly for quite a while. They finally bonded at the party, and Sydney wouldn't leave her alone the rest of the day.
We rented out "Jump Planet" for a playdate last week. Yup, we're totally rich. Haha, actually it's only $75 to rent it for an hour and 15 minutes, for up to 14 kids! Totally worth every penny, considering you can do it cheaper than the drop in playtime. Plus you don't have to share the place with stinky rough housing boys.
I don't know if it's the lighting or my camera just sucks, so the pictures aren't that great.

Ivy, Sydney and Cole in the toddler area
Grady with his big bro Gibson
Kaden LOVES the slide!
And Sydney loves to pose
Cole, Sydney, Ari and Darren after jumping
And last but not least....
That's my kid, kissing Elmo on the tv. The last time I saw this was back in '83 when Ricky Shroeder was on Silver Spoons. And I was the kisser. Yup, loved the boy, he was sooooo cute.

Can't wait to see you guys! Maddy tells me every week that she needs a haircut, so I don't know if that is a good indicator, I think she just likes the lollipop and balloon more than the haircut.
