Baby Britta's Baby Shower

We cut it pretty close having a baby shower for Katie and baby Britta. Katie was scheduled for induction on July 3rd and we came up with a time that worked for everyone on the Saturday before. We hosted at our house which was a bit of a squeeze. With 100 degree temperatures and 28 people (including the kids) it was a little warm:) Katie and I loved our lunch dates at Camino when we were pregnant with Sutton and Becca so it was only fitting that we had a mexican dinner:) It wasn't exactly the girly baby shower you might expect, but Chad pulled out all the Mexican themed decorations he had and made it a little Fiesta:) We had enchiladas, beans, rice and lots of dips and chips.

Chad made some festive drinks (non alcoholic). The jalapeno lemonade was a little hot...

Can't believe this is baby #3...time flies!

Love it!

Becca getting ready for her little sister

Elizabeth washed all the dishes....thank you!!!!

The kids played well together upstairs. So glad we didn't spend time cleaning before the party b/c it was a disaster!

We aren't afraid of entertaining in our little house...

I wanted to do like Brigham and go around without any clothes, but don't think that would have went over well!

Last picture as a family of 4:)

He is MY Son!!!

Sutton was so tired on Saturday after lunch that he fell asleep on the bottom step. Chad knew he was a little delirious and was waiting to take him up until I saw how he was acting. By the time I made it in there he had already fallen asleep. Boy likes to nap like his Mama!

Lane's Family Birthday Party

 We celebrated Lane's 4th birthday again with family on Friday night at Aunt Anne and Uncle Randall's. It was pretty hot, but the kids cooled off in the kiddie pool and sprinklers and the homemade ice cream helped.

The Eagleville Horse Show

 We left from Katelyn's party and headed to the horse show in Eagleville. This was the walking horse show that benefits the Lion's Club. Chad's dad, brother and Papa are members so he went to help with concessions. The kids were in the stick horse race and did a great job. Chad said this show wasn't that country and that Sutton should wear the hat he wore for Easter instead of a Cowboy hat (in case you are wondering).

Getting ready for the race:)

Everyone was a winner and got a ribbon and a dollar:)

 We stuck around for a little while, but it was so hot so Jennifer and I took the kids back to Nanny and Grandpa's to swim. The kids had a blast. We did get in with them even though it doesn't look like it in these pics. We had so much fun! I love swimming at much better than worrying about sun screen and the heat.

Katelyn's 2nd Birthday Party

 We celebrated Katelyn's 2nd Birthday (June 22nd) at James and Amber's house with a butterfly themed party. Amber had some crafty ideas to decorate with butterflies...I especially liked the fruit display in the shape of a butterfly. Aunt Morgie did a little face painting before the party.

Amber made the cake from scratch with organic ingredients. I have to say it was really good!

Kissing her Great Gran

Aunt Morgan did a great job on their faces! 
We finally figured out that Amber had put the 2 on the front door backwards...we were trying to figure out why she had an "S" on the door:)

The dad's taking care of the kids out in the heat...

Sutton, Trey and Cooper enjoyed the pool...really the only way to be outside!

Sutton and Cooper thought that Uncle John was "Papaw" also known as Big Dave...I can see how they favor each other!
