Memorial Day Madness

Monday we went Strawberry picking. Here's a little teaser into just how much fun we had. More pictures to come.

BBQ with the Boots

We had a super fun time with our buds the Boots last weekend. Here are the highlights:

They have 5 cutie kids so you can imagine with us and Sierra we had a full house. Sierra loves playing with them though, especially that handsome guy Oliver. He was a bit put out that Sierra insisted on driving on their date but she did and insisted that Sophia tag along as the chaperone.

He was trying to impress her all night. Everything he did was, "Sierra, watch me! Sierra, watch me!" I mean, look at this little stud. Who wouldn't want to watch him?

The girls had a great time playing together. Bubbles are their thing so they more than entertained themselves while the boys grilled up the burgers, and some really salty steak.

Post dinner we had some ice cream fun! Yuuuuuuummy!

We love the Boots!

Beginning of the End

I received this email from Joe today:

"Little bugger has officially taken her shirt of by herself for the first time. I think we are in trouble..."

Potty Pals

Sierra's church nursery friend Solei (who she calls Lolei) came over to play last night so her parents could go out and play. She's a bundle of energy and super smart and we had a blast with her. She's 8 months older than Sierra and is already potty trained so she decided to show Sierra how it's done when it comes to the potty.

We have a few pottys around the house for Sierra to get used to but she's not really grasping the concept, and we aren't pushing it, so Solei took matters into her own hands. She dropped her pants and settled in for the long haul. Sierra followed suit, almost.

Aren't they cutie?!

My Little Fish

Sierra and I definatley don't spend enought time together so I decided to sign up for a 5-week swim class at the local aquatic center. Such a good idea! Every Saturady Sierra and I put on our "baby suits" and head to the pool bright and early for our 30 minute mommy-and-me class.

She was such a fish last year at the pool but she was only one and didn't know any better. Now that she's older she had been resistant to putting her face in the water and even having us wash her hair because she didn't like getting in on her face but I am proud to say that she is back to her old self.

I must say that she is the BEST student in the class and she does look killer (for a baby) is a baby suit.

The first week was sort of...interesting...and so freakin' cold, even I was shivering the entire time. Poor Si got out of the pool and her lips were blue for an hour. She was shaking so bad that I couldn't even get a good picture.

The first week she just got used to the water and by the end she was cool going under water but, look at her now!

She's a master kicker and look at that arm action. Her teacher says she's a natural.

And she even jumps in! She's awesome! And so cute!

Super fun, so glad we did it. She'll be our little water baby this summer.
