We just went to Lake Powell with my side of the family. It was a lot of fun. Then we drove straight to Lance's big family reunion in Huntsville. We have one week at home and then we're off to Island park and then Lake Powell again, this time with Lance's family- Fun, stressful, and a ton of laundry!
Ivie has been into taking pictures lately. She says, "Can I have Cheese?" I thought she was actually asking for cheese but I eventually figured out that she meant she wanted her picture taken. She's been posing with Zander, dolls, and obviously sunglasses. The last picture was taken the day before we went home. They both just fell asleep on the bed while Lance and I were standing right there. All of a sudden they were both really quiet. We thought it was really cute!

Backyard update

So it's been about a month and this is the small bit of progress that has been made in the backyard. Last night Lance told me that if I made a check list with specific things that he could do in one hour he could get it done faster. It is quite overwhelming to think what to do first since the whole thing looks bad. Hopefully next time I post pictures, they will actually be worth looking at!

I am so excited to finally get to be outside. Ivie loves it. Zander?, not so much but he does take naps. Our backyard is looking a little better.
One day I noticed Ivie sitting next to Zander reading a book. They looked so cute I couldn't resist taking a picture.
We also got season passes to Lagoon. Whoo-hoo! We've gone about three times already. Ivie definitely loves it.
