We miss our daddy! As a lot of you can relate, the girls and I have been on our own the past few weeks. So when we can, we try to make it out to the field to take lunch or just make a quick visit. Yesterday was so pretty that we took lunch and had a little picnic with Daddy!
They were running to see him. ;)
To finish off the gorgeous day we had Saturday, we headed out to my sister-in-law's house for my nephew's 5th birthday party. We had a weiner roast and a hayride. The weather was absolutely perfect. We wanted to have a hayride for Ella's birthday, but the weather just didn't cooperate. Saturday, however, was perfect. I didn't get any pics of the party, but the hayride was a hit! Above is Chad's dad and Garrett's brother, Gavin along with Ella, Lauren, Chad, and our friend, Maggie.
Saturday had to be the nicest day of fall! The girls and I spent the morning at the park while Chad was at his captain's test. We're used to being on our own this time of year! So we made the most of the day by spending a lot of it outside. We hung out at the park for a couple of hours and made a lunch trip to McDonalds...or as Lauren calls it "PinkDonalds"...don't ask...I don't know. Here are a bunch of shots of the girls playing and being silly...Enjoy!
Getting them both to sit still for the camera is virtually impossible...these are the best 2!
I do like these two pictures of Ella...she is turning into a little model...she actually likes getting her picture taken now.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Lauren...in November! We had just gotten back from vacation on a Tuesday, bought a house that same day, tore out our last bathroom on Wednesday, and was in the middle of putting it back together along with many other last minute improvements while we had Lauren's birthday on Friday of that week. It was a busy month...August was. My mom had the only pictures from Lauren's party. My camera wasn't unpacked from vacation, so Mom took the pics. Here is my baby! She's getting to big and is plenty full of attitude to go with it!
Mom and Lo.
My grandma, "Gran" and Lo.
Almost too tempting...
The balloons were the biggest hit of the party!
My big 2 year old!
Have to have some "nem & nems".. :)
Lo is all personality...I wonder where she got that from???!!!
