Family, Food, & Fun

We had another fun weekend in Fillmore, we went for the Crosland Family Reunion. It was fun to hang out with our relatives. The family that hosted the reunion this year did a great job, all the kids had a blast. Tali and Hailey won too many prizes! Kenya slept through the whole reunion....she is such a good baby. After the reunion was over we headed to Grandpa and Grandma's house to play in the water and cool off. Kenya loved the little swimming pool. Tali liked the water guns as long as she could figure out how to squirt them at someone else and not herself! Here are some pictures from our fun weekend.

A Trip to the Zoo for Father's Day!

For Father's Day this year we decided to take the girls to the zoo. It was such a nice day....almost too hot to be walking around at the zoo, but we had a great time. Tali loved looking at the animals, and Kenya was so good just to ride in the stroller. I just want you all to know how thankful I am to have such a great father for Tali & Kenya. Mark is so good with the girls and he would do anything for them. Thanks for being such a good dad! Also I just want to tell my dad Happy Father's Day! Here are some of the pictures from the zoo.Tali playing with the water ball.....cooling off!

Weed Eater Accident

I decided my weed eater accident was blog worthy.....This is just a reminder to all of you not to wear flip flops while you are using the weed eater. My toes are all still attached and they look much better in this picture than they did on Tuesday when I accicentally let the weed eater eat my toes....... OUCH!

All About Kenya!

Kenya turned 4 months old on May 30th. I took her in for her well child check this past week & she is growing and developing very well. She weighs 17lbs and 4ozs, & is 26 inches long! She is learning to grab her toys and put them in her mouth. She is almost rolling over, she gets to her side and then she isn't quite sure what to do next. It won't be too long before she is rolling all over the place. She is such a good baby and loves to just lay and play and she really likes it when Tali talks to her! She has been sleeping through the night for a couple of months now. Here are some of my favorite pictures of Kenya doing what she does best.....SLEEPING!!!!

She loves to have the blanket over her face when she is sleeping!

The New Playground.....

Grandpa & Grandma's new playground is so much fun. Tali loves it and I am sure as Kenya gets older she will love it too. All of the grandchildren enjoy playing on it. I couldn't resist and had to go down the slide a few times.....I will save those pictures for later! Tali & Hailey sharing the infant swing....Hailey is squishing Tali!!

Happy Birthday Taylor!!

Our niece Taylor turned nine on Saturday. We went to Fillmore to help her celebrate her birthday. Friday night she had some friends over for a sleep out and on Saturday we had a family birthday party/BBQ for her. As always we had so much fun in Fillmore. Tali loves to hang out with her cousins and play until she is completely worn out. Here are some pictures from the birthday party. I have some really good ones with...well I won't mention any names but......of someone putting lots of food in their mouth....just send me your email address if you would like a good laugh!!!The birthday girl with Kenya

Girl or Monkey????

I had to post these pictures of our niece Hailey....she is such a little monkey and is ALWAYS climbing up something. We were at my brother's house for a BBQ and Hailey decided to climb up the poles that are holding his carport. She climbed all the way to the top with no help. Once she was to the top she said "Look at me mom I did it all by myself!" Then of course Tali had to try it...she didn't get near as high.....thank goodness!

Family Reunion, Baby Shower, & Rugby Game all in one weekend!!

This weekend was Mark's family reunion. It started Friday morning and ended Sunday night. Every family was in charge of coming up with their own mathcing t-shirts, so we decided to do tie-dyed shirts. Mark and I tie-dyed a bunch of shirts one night after we put the girls to bed...I think they turned out great! Tali loved being at the park playing and also dancing at the dance. We had a great time hanging out with the family, it was good to see everyone, can't wait for next year!! I have added a slide show with pictures from the reunion.
Saturday I went to a baby shower for my friend Treo. It was good to see friends that I haven't seen in awhile. Marcae did a great job putting everything together. Treo is going to make a great mom, I can't wait to see pictures of her new little girl!
Also on Saturday, Mark had a Rugby game. So I took the girls to watch Daddy play rugby. We met Aunty Niki, Uncle T and their kids at the rugby field to watch the game. After the game we went and ate dinner at IHOP. All the kids were crazy but we managed to eat and leave without doing too much damange!
