Father's Day 2015

Emory and I took some cute pictures for Justin for Father's Day so that he could hang them in his locker at the fire station. 

She thought it was SO MUCH FUN to dress up in daddy's clothes! 

Daddy's little girl. 

Love love love! 

She loves her daddy!

Weekend with Aga and Grandpa

The weekend of June 19th, Emory and I hopped into the car and headed to spend the weekend with Aga and Grandpa. Sadly, Justin had to work, but we were excited to spend our first weekend at Grandpa's house! 

As soon as we got to town, we headed to the ZOO! It was a hot and steamy day with periods of rain, so it was horribly humid, but we managed to still have a blast! 

Pointing out animals. She really enjoyed seeing everything! 

Looking at the big turtle, just like her shirt. She kept saying, "Look at my shirt, turtles."

What a sweet sweet zoo girl. Loving every second of it! 

The zoo has a brand new splash pad and these two had fun trying it out! 

Aga is always such a good sport! Emory is so blessed with a grandma who really plays with her and isn't afraid of being fun and silly! 

A perfect cool off on a hot day! 

Two cute pandas! 

And the cutest little panda I've ever seen! 

There was also a petting zoo and look who we found just in time to feed the donkey - Aunt Whitney! Aka "Whickey." Haha. We love how Emory says her name! 

Feeding the baby cows. Emory was a little scared to actually feed them, but she enjoyed passing the food to someone else to feed them. Haha. 

And then it was time for a little zoo boat ride! 

Emory loved the boat ride! 

We then headed to the mall to ride the fabulous carousel! How fancy is this?!

Having SO much fun! 

She liked the giraffe because he didn't go up and down like the other animals. 

This ended up being her favorite spot, just sitting on the bench. I think that she rode 5 or 6 times! Obsessed much? Haha! 

Aga's turn to ride! 

After dinner, we headed back to Grandpa's house and spent the evening going through all of his stuff. He has lots of our old toys in one of his extra rooms and Emory loved pulling everything out to play with. She was such a champ and slept so great. I'm so thankful for a good sleeper! 

The next morning we headed to the children's museum to enjoy some air conditioned play time. ; ) It was really neat and had a lot of things for kids to do. Emory had a blast and we stayed there for hours! 

Riding the canoe! There was a big tv screen right in front that showed whoever was in the canoe. Emory thought it was amazing that she was on "the tb!"

Taking a little ride in the police car, just like Aunt B! 

Picture time! This thing was so neat. You press the button and then strike a pose. It takes a picture with a big flash and your shadow is on the backdrop. 

The Cafe! This is where Emory spent almost all of her time, running back and forth between the kitchen and the counter. She was such a great server! 

Ringing up our lunch! 

And taking a little break to enjoy a bite with Aga. 

They also had a big fire station that was so neat! You could climb up the stairs and slide down the pole, just like real firefighters! Emory loves firefighters! 

The museum was SO neat and really had some fun things!

We spent the rest of the evening at Grandpa's house. Aga was at Emory's beck and call and Emory loved it. And I sure did love getting to sit and rest! : ) They colored, played with blocks, and read a ton of books. 

Before we left the next morning, they decided to play a quick game of twister. So cute! 

We had an absolute blast at Grandpa's house and can't wait to go back soon! Thanks for all of the fun, Aga and Grandpa!

June 2015 - Part Two

June has been such a fun month, full of lots of playing and lots of sweating!!

36 weeks pregnant! Definitely feeling the extra weight in this hot Louisiana weather! 

Visiting daddy at the fire station is a favorite activity! 

We went to look at a swing set to buy and these three sure did have fun trying it out! Haha! 

Riding her horsey one morning - she was galloping and giggling! 

Then she insisted on putting on her new shoes from Aga and Grandpa! She loves them! 

Puzzles outside. I love our fun afternoons together! 

Helping daddy make pancakes one evening for supper. She was SO excited! 

Two peas in a pod! 

My love bunnies cooking while mommy got to rest! Best dinner ever! Haha! 

Helping daddy "pat" the pancake. How adorable are they?! She loved helping out so much and talked about it for days afterward! She was so proud to have helped daddy cook! 

No meal is complete without a blessing from our Father! 

One afternoon we were tired of legos and puzzles, so we decided to look at all of Georgia's clothes. Emory went through every single outfit and said, "Cute cute cute." Then she piled them all up and jumped on them a million times. Haha. 

I can see second child problems already, haha! But at least she did say that all of the clothes were cute! 

I had to include this one because it is the first time that Emory has actually asked me to take a picture of her! It was so cute!! She held up her cup and her yogurt and thought she was something special! Haha! 

Until our library puts in a playground, this bike rack will have to do! Haha! 

It really does entertain them! Haha! Emory was pointing out a plane. Love her squinty face!

We Have Fixtures!

It's finally time for a house update! Just for you, Shan! ; ) 

As of June 8th, the outside of our house was officially painted! We are absolutely crazy about the white trim and gray paint. It's so stunning! 

June 12th - our tile shower is almost done! Isn't it beautiful?!

And our fixtures were installed! Woohoo! How pretty is our master bedroom fan and ceiling?!

Our big kitchen sink and the dishwasher was "semi" installed. Haha! All of the appliances are sitting in boxes just waiting to be installed. 

Patio fan = amazing! This will make it seem a teeny bit cooler outside. 

Our beautiful house - landscaped! YAY! Just waiting on shutters and sod. 

We cannot wait to move in and start this next chapter of our lives in our new beautiful home! We just cannot help but be so thankful of God's perfect timing in all of this, from selling our old house to finding this house just in time to customize everything. What a blessing!
