I love mooshed up baby face sleep.
She's so sweet y'all.
I can't believe she's almost one.

Hulk Smash!

He loves the super heroes.
Mind you that he has NO idea who they really are...
I know that his daddy will make sure he knows exactly who they are in a few years!

Appliance Love

We are trying to make sure she loves cooking as much as ME!
She loves the microwave.
Loves to look in it.
Look at it.
Watch it cooking.
And most of all, she LOVES the ding it makes when it is done!

Working on her fitness

I bought Hayes some 1 lb weights because he likes to do my Shred videos too!
Libby found them one day and decided to try them out.
I think she likes them!

Swear, they're not nekkid

Elizabeth thinks that the recliner is her personal jungle gym.
Hayes uses it as his television viewing seat.
Clearly, together they use it as a mosh pit.
So kind of Hayes to share, not that he had a choice!

Puddle Jumping

Puddle jumping at Publix after a grocery trip.
I can't get mad because he's pretty smart.
I was loading Elizabeth in the car and he made a point to find the 1 foot puddle.
Splashing and laughing...

Lake Love

I can't imagine that this obnoxious life jacket is comfortable for her. 
She makes it work!

He loves the boat and the dragon towel.
Perhaps a little TOO much.

Have to love them.
They clearly like each other!

Back to the Beach

We spent a week there and I took entirely TOO many photos to even attempt to upload and edit.  

Basically, I'm too lazy.  So, here's a slide show.  Enjoy my precious little ones!

It's like a buffet up in here...

She has various taste in food. 
Venison spaghetti.
Watermelon and canteloupe.
And poptarts...
She literally eats everything that isn't nailed down.
She ate a handful of dead bugs at the lake this week.

Cushion the Fall

Daddy left us for about 10 days to go coach wrestling in Fargo.
Yes, North Dakota.
Yes, he does this most every summer.
Yes, I think he's weird.
But he loves it... so I deal.
And this is one way I deal.... gotta cook dinner.
So we play with all the cushions on the floor!
Hayes helps me line them up just so... cause he's RainMan.
Elizabeth just LOVES being able to play on the couch and bouncing!
I left it like this all day last it!

Lunch Date with Toy Story

We found our costumes while trying to pack the house.
The kid loves them.
We changed them about every 20 minutes for a good 3 hours.
I was exhausted about the time naptime finally rolled around.

Scattered Showers

Trying to get ready to leave and this little girl is all up in my business!
So hard to get things done with these sweet cheeks.

Shopping with Hayes

He rode the horses while we shopped.
And the train at the mall!
He rode with The Cat in the Hat too!
This train was really neat.
It ran all over the mall and Hayes was just smitten with it!
Check out those grins!
Hayes was in heaven riding that train around and Daryk was a GREAT sport.

Travel Pictures

He's a major toy hoarder when we are on road trips.
Got the baby's toy, his blanket & pillow, his pup of juice, and you can see Woody's legs.
Doesn't like to share.  Its not really his thing.
And then he discovered the DVD player.
Thank you Jesus (and Disney) for The Lion King!
This chick is ALL smiles as long as you are giving her EXACTLY what she wants.
But the second she gets bored or tired... she turns into a crazy diva.
Why yes, that IS my child dipping his apple slices in ketchup.
Nasty, but he ate it.
See that grin?
She loves her Papa.
He's a SUCKER for giving into her every little whimper and demand.

Hayes' Ocean

 This is the extent of Hayes' ocean exposure. 
The tide pool was where he spent his time until about Thursday.
 Digging in the sand.
Throwing the sand.
 Making a sand castle.
Only to knock it over 3 seconds later.
 Running through the tide pool.
Splashing anything and everything in site.
 Such a cute little hiney.
Almost had some plumbers crack....
 More gallivanting through the tide pool and the sea shell collection.

This is his absolute favorite activity.
He wallows on everything all the time.
 You like the pasty white kid look?
He has a very small hint of a tan line now.
Very small.
