Fun in the Sun!

It has been so HOT lately, we have tired to spend lots of time at the pool!
Addison has become such a water baby.
She would play in it from the moment she wakes up to time she goes to bed. 
 I was getting ready and this little diva came in and said she was ready to go! :)
 This sweet girl..
LOVES the water!
We are planning to spend lots more time in the water this summer.. its about the only place for this mama to stay cool! :)

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Daddy-Daughter Date night

Every year Chick-fil-a does a fun little event for Daddies and their sweet girls!
You make reservations and get to have a candlelit dinner with flowers with your dad. 
This was Brent's 2nd time to take Addison.

The 1st time she was about to turn 2..
 and then a week ago he took her again.. Almost 3!
They had a great time! 
Addison was beyond excited and when she came home could not wait to tell me all about it! 

I am so happy our sweet girls have such a loving, Godly leader for a dad. 
He is the best "girls" daddy around!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to one wonderful Daddy and husband! I am beyond thankful God choose you to be ours. I love how a "manly man" loves to play barbies, dress up, chalk and bubbles and always compliments our sweet girl on how beautiful she looks! Addison absolutely adores you and I know Saylor will too! We love you to the moon and back girl daddy!! :) 
And Happy Father's Day to the best father I could ask for! Thank you for the unconditional love you give! You are one loved Pop and we are 2 blessed girls!

Day 4 & 5

Day 4
Tuesday we woke up and headed to the KC aquarium. 
Addison had been talking about this all week. 
She loves fish, so she was so excited!
 They had a neat little pool where you could touch different sea life. 
 She LOVED looking at all the fish...
 but stayed away from the sharks!
 She picked out all the fish she wanted to take home with her and what she needed for her birthday.
( Brent promised her one as soon as she was fully potty trained...AHHH!)
Addi had so much fun and so did we. 
It was a pretty neat place!

That afternoon we headed back to the hotel after lunch, swam and then rested for a little while before we headed to A's 1st major league baseball game.  
 This is how we started the game... Addison was passed out.
4 days with no naps caught up with her fast!!
 After hearing the loud noises she was up and ready to go!
 The Royals stadium had so many fun things for kids.
 She enjoyed the little splash park
and of corse some mini golf!
 It was HOT... but we had great seats!
 Addison did pretty well. She made it to almost the 8th inning before we headed out!
Sure do love these two!!

Day 5
We slept in, went and ate at dunkin donuts for breakfast, then headed home!
It was a great week with just us 3. Brent and I enjoyed all the one on one time we got to spend with our 1st baby girl! It was so fun to watch her explore and enjoy everything. :)

I cant believe the next trip we take our sweet little Saylor will be joining us
I cant imagine packing for it! ha

Hope you had a great week!

But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children--

Day 3

Day 3

We headed to the KC zoo!
It was so fun. If you are ever in the area, you have to go! 
Addison was beyond excited to see all the different animals. 
 She loved the polar bears... which were putting on a show for everyone! 
 And of course the monkeys..
 and elephants were a must see! 
 It was pretty hot, so we took advantage of the fun rides around the park.
Addison loved the air lift..
it took you from one side of the zoo to the other..
 which was great for this pregnant mama! 
 We also enjoyed a boat ride 
 and a couple rides on the carousel! 
 We finished the day with a fun train ride.
This was by far Addison favorite thing the entire day! :) 
 After relaxing a the hotel for a little while we headed to the Cheesecake factory for dinner 
and to the swimming pool after!

We had a great day and by bedtime we were all worn out!
