Friday Fun Day: Life Catch Up...

Here's a catch up on fun things we've done over the past few weekends. A couple of weeks ago, we attended the Lenexa Spinach Festival. You may recall from last year, that Lenexa is the spinach capital of the world (whatever that means). Anyway, the festival is at a park right by our house and they do a ton of fun (& free) stuff for kiddos. We had a great time!!

Craft time!

Home Depot crafts...D made a tool box and Ella made a pencil holder!

After the Spin Fest, we headed to the Morris house to watch the Iowa game. Unfortunately, the Hawks lost (I'm still bitter), but Beth and Collin joined us and we had a great time!


On Sunday, we went to the Sayers house for some Chiefs football. It was great getting to hang out and see everybody!

After naps, Kris, Matt, Grant, D and I headed to their neighborhood ice cream social. As you can see, D was a big fan!!

The following weekend, we celebrated Namma's birthday. My grandfather (my mom's mom) and Aunt Bobbie (my mom's sister) came to town. They did a "nursing home" tour of Iowa and then came to spend a few nights in KC. It was great getting to see them!

Pile up on Ella quickly turned into pile up on Aunt Bobbie :)

One last random pic from the park a few weeks ago...D fed the geese his animal crackers and goldfish crackers. I was okay with it, until the geese started coming out of the water towards us!

Coming soon...D and Ella's first trip to Worlds of Fun!!!!

Wednesdays Weekly Review - Happy Birthday, Papa!!!!

I am saving my long post for Friday this week...but for now: Happy Birthday, Papa!!!! You are such an incredibly important and amazing part of our lives. I love watching you and Dylan together (and, of course, Ella and Maggie as well!). You come up with fun and exciting things for all of them: cheese on a stick, trips to the driving range, etc. Thank you for being such a huge part of all of our lives day in and day out. And just as important, thanks for continuing to be the best dad a girl could ask for. I wouldn't be where I am today without you and I certainly couldn't have survived the last 3 years. We love you!!

And now...a video tribute :) And yes, D is still quite the ham these days!!
