Paul is heading to goalie camp tomorrow morning for a long weekend of shooting on goalies. He hasn't been to camp in 7 years or so, and he's excited to be back doing his thing. Back in our dating years, he traveled to 3 or 4 different camps a summer working with kids to master their lax skills. He loves it, and it gets him away for a few days.
Needless to say, after our afternoon at the lake, I could barely keep my eyes open and pretty much zonked completely out around 8:30. I did the same thing last night too. Whenever I get really tired, my stomach just aches and aches...the only way to make it feel better is to just go to sleep. I can't deny the hurt, I just need to succumb to it, close my eyes and sleep! This morning I woke up completely rested and feeling so much better!
These are pics from the last few days. We always end the day with playing outside after dinner, and here are the girls doing their part to keep the night entertaining. Have a great week all :-)
I LOVE this picture of Little wee one...she's in this total stinker stage. Telling us, "NO" all the time and being honory!
She's also going through a "doot" stage
Both girls are into riding on someone's back lately. Ask Daddy how his back feels about that! Doesn't it look like fun though!?
Go green! Say NO to plastic Bags...the end.

If you are a parent you know what a HUGE step this is!! She was sooooo proud of herself! We did a dance around the house and sang! She told me, "Poopie". I asked her if she wanted to sit on the potty and she said, "Yesssss!" So we did and she DID!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
Man, she's really blossomed the last couple of weeks. She now says two-three word sentences and talks A LOT! I went from being afraid she was never going to talk to her non-stop talking :-) I love it though! Her little voice cracks me up. I love it when she wakes up and yells, "Momma, Mommmmaaaaaa, Mommma, MOMMAAAAA!!" I love when she tells me really serious stories, even though I have no clue what she's saying. I love when just tonight she asked me, "Momma, what dis?", when I was shredding zucchini. I love when I ask her if she's ready to go "ni-ni" and she asks me to "Wock?" (rock).
I just love her :-)
Here are the girls playing with our neighbor's little boy. He's giving Big wee one a ride and then she returns the favor...summer time fun! They ride in style!

This past Sunday we drove up to visit with my grandparents. We don't get to see them very often, which is a shame since they live about 2 hours away, but it's hard to go anywhere with two small kids and everyone's conflicting schedules. We are going to try much harder to get to see them atleast every other month if that's possible.
Here are the girls overlooking my grandparent's land and the view from their house...isn't it pretty...so peaceful!
Little wee one was playing peek-a-boo and being so silly!
Here is some funny stuff...Little wee one was walking around the edge of Nonny's flowers, doing a little dance and then...
Here's the little dance...
On to the pool...N & G have an indoor pool and the water was sooooo warm! Can't beat that kind of swimming! Look at Little wee one swimming all by herself, she's taking after her Munchkin cousin (who hasn't updated her blog in awhile!)Flowers...they were so pretty. The bees were flying all over the purple flowers, and they looked so cool. I think I'm going to have a large print made of some of them and put them in my bathroom.
I would have a picture of Big wee one with the flowers but she informed me that she was too grouchy for pictures at that time. It was only when we saw the horses that she perked up some.
I definitely need to do some photoshoping to this picture...it has potential to be cool, just needs a little "uumph"
Do you see this??? My daughter will SCA-REAM so loud when a tea-cup little dog is even in the same room as her, but will pet a massive horse! I wonder if this goes along with the whole princess and unicorn thing that a lot of girls are into. She loves princesses and princesses have princes that ride horses...interesting...I blame the dog stuff on being nipped at by an ankle dog one time.My next post will recap Old Market Day. Have a great one!

Thursday, we hung with some friends that evening. Woke up Friday to get ready to enjoy a beautiful day at a friend's pool...and it RAINED! To top it off, the girl's slept for soooo long! We ended up not making it to the swimming party, but Big wee one woke up around 4:45 so we were able to get ready and head to another BBQ/garage party...hehe! We had a blast there, Paul has finally made some friends that he has really connected with and they like a lot of things that he does. It also helps that the wives are pretty cool :-)
Sunday, well...to be honest, I don't remember what we did on Sunday. HA!! But, I know it wasn't much, because I don't think I really got dressed...probably just played outside. Oh...wait! hahaha...I remember. With the long weekend I was getting my days mixed up. We did just lounge all day and play. It was awesome. Big wee one is seriously into riding her bike All. The. Time. So she rode all day, I digi scrapped (FINALLYYYYYY!), Little wee one played and Paul tinkered on his jeep with his non-gimp hand. We hope he's completely healed soon. Or atleast get the thumbs up form the doc soon :-)
