A New Do...

Bexley before...still pretty good-lookin'
After...so HANDSOME!!
Before...what a mess!
After...so BEAUTIFUL!

Bexley needed a haircut before school starts next week so I took the kids to Cookie Cutters. Bex wanted to experience playing video games while getting a cut so I thought I could make it the annual back to school haircut tradition. It's really not worth the extra $ it cost, but it's a cute place. Madison didn't want her hair cut, but she hates getting her hair done so I think short is better. Plus she is so dang cute anyway...short or long...They both look great and I can't wait to see how much easier it is to get her ready in the morning.


Here are some pictures from the recent camping trip. We had a great time! We already can't wait for next year! The big news is that Dave and Dar are adding another one to the fam! We are so happy. It is great to be an Aunt. Plus Isaac will have fun being a big brother!
Me and my amazing husband Mark!
Cute Darlene...She was sick with baby #2 all week...

Papa pretending to read while napping...He works too hard!

Helping to set up the tent...I have lost 42 pounds...check out my other blog

Papa, Nana, and Dave getting the fire going for our tin foil dinners...

Thanks Dar...they were yummy!

Madison being her cute self...she was jumping on the air mattresses.

It was FREEZING at night...all you can see of Bexley are his fingers!

I was so COLD!! But I still look good... :)

Crazy Isaac and his blue "Hitler" moustache...he is so fun!

I Love Camping!!

I am so excited that the family is heading to Coalville tomorrow for some much needed relaxation! We are camping for the week with Nana and Papa, and Dave, Dar, and Isaac. Bexley can't wait to try out his new sleeping bag and Maddie got a cute new pink camping chair. Mark and I also got new chairs too. I've got all the food ready and can't wait! See you in a week with lots of pictures...

Life...it's the best!

Marian and Sarah
Me and my cute sis Marian
Why so serious Bexley?
Oh Madison...
I have been so busy in July. I have been keeping another blog to track my weight lose. Since July 1st I have lost 32 pounds!! My sisters Marian and Sarah were here for Marian's baby shower. She is due September 5th. Can't wait to meet baby Gavin. We are going camping on the 10th and I can't wait!! One last vacation before school starts on the 25th. It's going to get busy!! Can't believe Bex will be in 3rd grade! Hope he's ready for it. He is so smart, but easily distracted. It will be a lot of work to be PTA president again, but it is also a lot of fun!! Enjoy the rest of summer...
