Go ahead and grab yourself a cup of coffee and get comfy…this is life lately and there are a lot of pictures to go with it :). Happy Thursday!
This is summer. This was the last day of school, so we stayed up late after baseball and enjoyed snow cones on the driveway.
First official day of summer! Let’s do this!
She stopped swimming just long enough to enjoy a plum :).
What could be more fun than dumping water on your head while sitting next to your bestie?
Dumping water on his head. He wasn’t amused…but it sure made Ashby laugh!
Friday night rehearsal for Don Quixote.
After the dress rehearsal, we hurried to Smith’s baseball game and then headed to Mexican food after that. We were all tired and oh so hungry! After Mexican food, we walked next door for ice cream and then as we were heading back to the car, Andrew found a stray shopping cart in the parking lot and they went for a ride.
My Saturday morning view.
This is Saturday.
We had two nights in a row of Don Quixote! These girls did so good!!
Bowen wanted a pic…big sister wanted to photobomb.
Catherine and Sean stepped off a plane from LA and drove straight to the recital. Bless them. It was two hours of little girl dance…you know…that’s not always the most entertaining. So sweet!
Love him so much.
During a two hour recital, one must do anything to entertain a small child…such as allow her to take selfies.
I can only imagine what my brother is thinking right now. I looked over and saw him and laughed out loud. I’m sure he was thinking “when is this going to be over????”. #uncleproblems
After sitting through two nights of this ballet, Ashby is all dance, all the time. This was her backstage.
“Please sign me up for dance.”
Everyone wanted pics with our little dancer!
After night two, we hit the snow cone joint with the Slaughters. Nixon and Smith are trying not to give me their best smiles. Their faces crack me up here!
And then on Tuesday morning, we woke up with a three year old in the house. Love this girl so much!
The kiddos were so excited about her opening her presents.
And she was too!
Working on her new puzzle with breakfast.
My big 3 year old girl!
The many faces of Ashby :).
Kensington has been talking about donating her hair for a while now and on Tuesday morning, she just had to do it. After calling six places, I was able to find one that had an available spot for that afternoon.
So proud of my girl!
On Tuesday night, we invited Ashby’s friend Bowen over for swimming and grilling to celebrate her 3rd birthday.
How many life preservers can Ashby wear at one time? She floated in the ring with her puddle jumper on :).
I put this on Instagram…but she waited three years for her first birthday candle, first birthday cupcake, first birthday Happy Birthday song. I hope it was worth the wait…she sure was.
That’s our week!
For dinner tonight…
…a really quick chicken supper for your week. This is my Jalapeno Peach Chicken. And psssst (you can serve it to your kids with ketchup instead of the jalapeno peach relish if you like!).
