Baby Rachel Turns 1!

I can't believe it's already been a year, but my best friend's baby, just turned 1. So scary how fast a year goes, especially since I didn't get to see her all that much (due to fun things like tax season and all the random illnesses all our kids had this winter/ was a rough year). ANwyays, we are hoping that summer and fall are much better times for us so that we can see them more often, especially since the girls love to play with Stephanie and think the idea of having a baby sister is fascinating! :)

Here we are playing in the awesome playroom at Aunt Nancy's house...

AND for the rest of the Memorial Day Weekend.....

After spending the day at Grandpa and Grandma's farm, we came home (minus a nap), to go to Angie's Birthday party. Angie is our next door neighbor...we love her, and her brother, and her Dad (Mr. Bob) and Her mom (Ms. Rhonda), AND Cooper, the adorable puppy. Shockingly enough we were well behaved and flirted with everyone, while mooching as many sweets as possible! :)

Here we are, dressed up for the party...
Angie and the girls...

on Sunday evening, we went to Grandma Pat's for of her friends from Church gave her a whole bunch of her kids old dress up clothes....we sure do love them!
A lazy Monday meant popsicles on the patio...can't wait for summer to get here!

Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend, here's to hoping I survive this lovely cold that I picked up.

Down on the Farm....

For Memorial Day weekend, we spent our Sunday at Grandpa Gale and Grandma Vicki's farm and we had so much fun!

Here we are posing in front of the side of the barn....we got some super cute pictures out of this visit! :) Grandpa mentioned that Grandma had some pictures of the other grandchildren in front of the barn, so could we take some of the girls here too....
I call this the pirate grin....arggggggh!
LOVE your sister! :)
I especially love these next two pics...

Up in the loft with Daddy, we'll have to try these again, not too many came out! BOO.

 Riding on the tractor in the hay...almost as cool as seeing the horses!

This is Miss O
 Miss S

Feeding the horses. This is the part of the visit where Mommy goes into the house and hides, as she is allergic to horses. Boo. :(

looking out over their so cute.

Grandpa's Girls!

Monkeying around the farm!

As always, we had a wonderful visit to the started off kind of rough with the Sydney getting sick on the way down (in her defense she told her Daddy her tummy hurt), but she quickly recovered while at Grandpa's! We played the morning away, had a yummy lunch and then played some more before we headed home. Sadly the 40 minute drive home was NOT a good nap for the girls. Oh well! Off to a birthday party we went!

Hope all is well with you!
