birthday girl!

We celebrated Emmy's 2nd birthday with family and friends last weekend and had a really nice afternoon! We spent time at the lake swimming and playing with cousins and friends while eating lots of cheetos and pizza! As we were driving home Emmy turns to me and says, "fun day mommy!" That was about the perfect ending to a great day! :]

Cheers to many more fun years ahead!

Meet Emmy's newest friend, Francine the Frog...or sometime for short, Froggie!

Francine goes potty, she comes outside to play, she also joins us for breakfast and dinner! Emmy doesn't quite get that her new friend can't go in the bath tub, or sleep in bed [ouch], but it's hilarious watching what happens when Francine's around!

we're back!

Wow...where has summer gone! It's been months since we posted any updates, and after reading our friends and families blogs it's motivated me again. 

We've had a really great summer spending weekends at the lake, 2 camping trips with Jake's family, grilling with mine, weddings, seeing Jack Johnson, plus Emmy will be 2 this weekend! Jake and I's anniversary is a few weeks away...5 years already, and tailgating starts in two weeks! Surprise, surprise, Jake's taught Emmy to yell "GO HAWKS!"

I've finally downloaded photos for the first time since 4th of July, so I've picked some of my favorites to share! Enjoy!

P.S. Those of you that have kept Jamie in your prayers - it's really paid off. She was able to go home from the hospital today and looks, and feels, fantastic! It's amazing how well she's doing. A big thanks all!
