Summer time!

Well, to state the obvious it has been HOT outside. However, we have made the most of it with daisy's pool, our wonderful neighbors, and the sprinkler! I am so excited to be cutting back to two days of work again starting in the middle of July!!! I love the summer and I am excited to be able to spend more time with Daisy again, apart from running errands.

Daisy is such a hoot these days. She just started saying "I love you Mommy" and "I love you Daddy" this week! I can't tell you how sweet it is to hear her say that! She has quite the vocabulary now and says new things daily. She of course still LOVES her baby dolls and to dance.

Here are some of our latest photos:

Happy Fathers Day to our wonderful daddy and husband! Daisy and I bought Chris a seat for his bicycle that Daisy can ride in! Let me just say they have GREATLY improved these things since I rode behind my dad on his bike! Here is daisy riding her bicycle! She is SOOOOO excited and Chris is SOOOOO excited. The two of them crack me up. Daisy has wanted a bicycle for a long time, but we have not been able to find one she fits on, and she is too little to have the motor skill to ride it, but this is PERFECT! Every night since the bike came home we have been riding. Today we even rode to breakfast and Chris and Daisy rode to a lunch party we had(while I took the car). The two of them could not be happier and I LOVE watching that! Plus it has been a fun family activity for us all to enjoy!

Last weekend we headed back to the lake, Daisy enjoyed the boat this time! We were so happy. But she was not brave enough to sit on the jet ski with daddy! Maybe next time.

Here is Daisy doing her Marilyn impression.

Sportin' the great '90's sunglasses!

Last night we had a neighborhood going away party for our friends the Guess'. They move next week to Montana! We are excited for them, but will miss them. We had such a great time at the park, here are some photos:

We are blessed to have such a fun neighborhood. In other news the fixing of the house is underway and my car goes into the shop next week! Let's pray for no more storms!

Here is our new friend (turtle in middle of road--huge turtle), unfortunately he didn't make it upstream, he was quickly washed away as you can see from pictures below!

Luckily for us, for some reason Chris was parked in the driveway and me on the street (which we moved uphill), otherwise I have a feeling his car would have floated away!!! Craziness!!!!

7 years......

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful hubby! I can't believe how fast time flies!
I love you so much!
(I am sitting here waiting to go to work, watching it rain and flood, water is almost up to the base of my doors of my car, all the highways around here are closed! Oklahoma has to be having some kind of record year for extreme weather!)

The Lake

Here are some photos from the lake! I can't believe how old she is looking lately! We had a great time, although Daisy is not a fan of the boat this year....we will have to keep working on that!

Family Photos!

I know it has been awhile. Nana and Uncle Steven were here for a visit, then Daisy was sick (allergies?), then we went to the lake, and then I worked everyday last week! We are just now catching up! Trying to spend as much time with Daddy while we have him before craziness begins July 1st!

Before we left for Mexico we had family pictures taken in Joplin. If anyone lives in the area I highly recommend Stacy! You can check out her website here:
(she is my cousin-in-law?? does that word exist?)
Here are our some of our favorite photos....we have so many good ones to choose from even though Daisy would not look and or smile for the camera and it was FREEZING cold that day!
