Busy, Busy, Busy

That is the theme of my life these days. Here's a quick pictorial update of all that we have been up to these last few weeks.

Keeping up with Miss Emma is a huge one lately. She runs, not walks, every where and is into exploring everything. While visiting some dear friends who were camping last weekend, Emma fought the camper and the camper won.

She took a tumble out of the door and slid down the steps face first and has the marks to prove it. Mommy felt pretty bad about that one, but she's a real trooper. I'm happy to report that she has healed nicely and is almost back to normal already.

We have also been very occupied with swimming lessons every Saturday for the last six weeks. Although the water was pretty chilly, Emma enjoyed splashing around with the other kids. She was accompanied by mom, dad, Grandma Kirschner and even Aunt Jessica once.

During the week, we've spent lots of time pool side as well (inflatable that is!). It's been hot around here and Emma has had lots of fun swimming with her buddies AA (Aiden) and GaGa (Gavin). The kids love to be out doors and it's so fun to watch them interact. We're going to miss them this summer!

She spends lots of time running around with just bottoms on in order to get rid of some nasty heat rash the poor girly has been dealing with. I'd let her go with just a diaper, but she'd have the thing off in no time!

Daddy finished Emma's little cabin this week as well and I can hardly keep her out of it. I won't let him hook up electricity because then I may never be able to get her into the house!

We also spend a ton of time outside when we get home at night. We have ice cream on the deck. Emma and I take our babies for walks :) Walks tend to take a long time, since someone must stop to examine everything- flowers, ant hills, rocks, etc.

I have also been extremely busy with our garage sale. After my step-mom passed away, we hauled a ton of her stuff to my house. I wanted to be able to help my dad out in some small way. I knew she liked clothes, but never truly appreciated how much stuff she had until it was all in my garage. Our first sale wasn't too successful due to weather, but we are planning on doing another one next weekend.

Most days someone ends up filthy from her head....

to her toes. We wrap up our busy day with a quick bath and some snuggle time before bed. I love these days filled with sunshine, friends, laughter, and love. I wouldn't trade them for the world!
