Fun at the Lake

Our first trip to the lake this summer was a success.  
The kids enjoyed the lake as usual... both swam in the lake but sulley is definitely our little water rat.  

hamming it up with baba 

pretty sure sulley stayed in the water the whole time and only got out for food  

Colton LOOOVED riding the jet ski and the boat.  

Cheetos, favorite dock snack

Day 2

This was pretty much the standard scene when the kids came to visit!

Sulley loves to hold baby Ainsley, but let's face it, Colton could really care less...

Say Cheese!

Colton and Sulley were presented with their very own digital cameras from Ainsley on the day she was born.  Although we haven't taken many pics in a few days, both kids have already blown through one set of batteries. What better way to make them feel included and have fun at the same time than by giving them their own cameras.

Little Miss Ainsley

Welcome Miss Ainsley Layne! Born 5/16/11 at 4:31pm. 6lbs, 10oz and 20 inches! 
We are thrilled that you have finally been welcome into this world !

Looks like the standard hospital hats, just got a bit fancier with the addition of a bow!  

Colton and Sulley were pretty sweet meeting the baby for the first time.  Neither one of them wanted to hold Baby A the first night but both enjoyed loving on her!

Notice the black and white bow that sulley picked out to bring the baby!

First day in the sprinkler

The clouds broke long enough for the sun to come out today which was so nice considering it was supposed to rain all weekend. Greg brought out the new sprinkler and before you could blink, both kids were soaking wet and sulley was dressless!

new toys!

Sulley loves her princess castle that she got for her birthday! too bad it takes up half of the playroom in the basement! if you look closely, you can see her at the bottom  - just look for the blue princess dress ;)

Colton has been enjoying his new (Thomas the Train) big wheel. He's been working on pedaling...his legs are just barely long enough but i think he's got it down now! When he's not shooting basketball, you may find him wandering the walk in his big wheel!

Since the weather has been fabulous all week, we've spent the majority of the time outside...  even in dress up clothes.  Clearly, colton is the odd man out in the this pic....

 two princesses and a prince


When it's sunny, the kids drag every single toy outside!

and love to play hide and matter how they're dressed!

Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

We celebrated Colton and Sulley's 3rd birthday as a family! After having cupcakes with family on Easter, cupcakes with classmates at school, and cupcakes at home, they were almost burned out on them! It was a great day though - we took them to McDonalds for play and dinner per their request. We hope to have a party at the end of summer!
