Jax's 1st Birthday Party

Friday, July 22, 2016

Nana had to get some snuggles in. :)
Riley loved chilling with Papa before the party started. :)
Jax turned one on July 9th and I still can't believe that he is one! Time went by so so fast and it seems like just yesterday that Court was in the hospital having him. He is the sweetest boy ever and I am so lucky to be his aunt. He has the best smile on the planet and Rosalie absolutely adores him. :) He had a fun little pool party and all the kids had a blast playing in the pools with the beach balls. Riley even dipped his toes in the water for the first time and didn't seem to mind too much. ;)

4th Of July Fun

Thursday, July 21, 2016






We had a wonderful 4th of July this year. We started the day off with the parade and Rosalie loved it! They had some awesome floats, but Rosalie's favorites were definitely the Nemo and Po balloons. Since the parade was super close to our house, we just walked there and it was so nice! We stopped on the way home for some ice cream at Sub Zero and to let Rosalie play at the splash pad for a bit and Rosalie loved it. After a while we met up with Tyler and Andrea (Chanse's sister and her husband) for lunch and to hang out. It was so good to see them and I am glad that we got to hang out again before they headed back to Tennessee. I can't believe that the next time we see them their precious baby boy will be here. :) We went and got snow cones as well, and once again Rosalie was in heaven. We decided to opt out on going to see the fireworks that night since both kiddos were so tired and Riley is still so small. It was a great day and I am already so excited for next year!

A Day At The Ponds

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

She was terrified of the fish. It was pretty funny!

We finally got her to touch the fish and she was pretty proud of herself. :)
My In-laws own some great fishing ponds and we had a great time going with Chanse's family a little while back. Rosalie experienced a lot of firsts while we were there. She held a crawdad for the first time, which I found pretty darn impressive and she also caught her first fish! Chanse got it on his fishing pole and she helped him to reel it in. It was so fun seeing how excited she was, and it was hilarious when we showed her the fish to see how scared she was of it. She wouldn't touch the fish at first, but we finally got her to do it after doing it ourselves and she was so incredibly proud of herself and kept saying over and over to everyone how she had touched the fish. :) She seriously has so much personality and I absolutely love it! Riley was such a good little guy even though it was windy, and as usual, no one could get enough of him. :)

Pool Day

Tuesday, July 19, 2016



A few weeks ago I set up Rosalie's little pool in the front yard and she had an absolute blast playing in it. My little brother Collin was sweet enough to get in the pool with her while I took care of Riley on the porch and they had so much fun together. Collin is seriously the best uncle to her and could keep her entertained for hours. :)
