Lily's Birthday Party

We got a few friends together today to celebrate Lily's birthday! Emma took a few of these pictures and for that I'm thankful as I would have totally forgot! 

Setting up.
Decorating cupcakes.

After the crowd left, we had a little fun :)

So thankful for friends and this girl who brings so much laughter to our lives.

Blowing By

Just like summer is blowing on by.... so is Lily on her bike! 

 Our first little bike trip to the little library! Emma pushed Paige for quite a bit!

She made it!

I emptied some pictures from our little camera. These go back to May.... and I think most of them are taken by Emma. 

Going out to eat for Jay's promotion.

These 2 were so sweet and made me cookies for Mother's Day while I was napping.


As Jay was gone last week, we were keeping ourselves busy here at home as 2 of the 3 kids had ear infections and strep by the end of the week. So, I introduced the girls to the sprinkler. Lily wanted nothing to do with it as she sat on the deck and watched Emma have a blast in it! 

 We had a few treats here and there. 

Here are a few pictures Jay took for us. Beautiful.

Emma has been intrigued by the idea of camping. Outside was not an option this year for us.... maybe not even next year. But, we did have a camp out in the basement including Paige! It was pretty fun. I won't lie and say there weren't some tears, moments of frustration, and little sleep. But, we did have s'mores with Auntie Cara, colored in the tent, looked at the stars, played, watched Cinderella and had popcorn, had some glow sticks, and of course slept in a tent!

We made it to the morning!!
