An update...finally!

I have been so busy/lazy that I haven't been able to sit down and update for awhile. Thanks to Jaime bringing her camera everywhere, I actually have some pictures to post. Some might be repeats on her blog, but she is kind enough to share her pictures and take pictures of my kids for me when we go on our outings!
We have had a busy couple of weeks. We are totally loving the beautiful weather and we have been outside quite a bit. Here are some pictures of our last few weeks:
We went to the zoo with Pam and her kids, Jaime and Brody, Kristi and Elliott and Karli and her kids. This is Cade checking out the sea lions!

Cade and Maddison hanging out. With the help of Pam, I took my two little dayhome girls with us to the zoo. They all had so much fun!

Jenna in the bumbo chair that Jaime lent us. She looks a little dazed, but she does like it. She seems too little to be able to sit in that chair, but she is getting really strong now. She is already 4 months old!

This is kind of a creepy picture, but it is Cade at the tri-leisure center. We have made a few visits lately with some of our friends! He love sit there. I was tryingt o get hin to look through the telescope, but I think he was yelling in it.

On Saturday we went to the outdoor pool in Stony Plain. It was a hot day so we went and cooled off. Cade drove around his little car almost the whole time, then he passed it off to Brody!

Jenna hanging out in the stroller in her little swim suit and hat. She slept almost the whole time we were at the pool...what a good baby!

Brody and Cade...I love how neither one of them are looking at the camera. Brody usually does, but you can never count on Cade for a good shot!

Cade and Uncle Casey feeding the horses at my dad's on Father's Day. He love/hates the horses. He gets a little scared, but thinks he's brave I think!

That's all for now. I have a tonne to do before the kids wake up from nap. Jesse is putting sod down in our back yard this week, so my next post will be of my beautiful back yard...yay!!

Happy Birthday Cade!

Happy 2nd Birthday to Cade! His birthday was last Friday and he is finally 2 years old! It seems like he has been 2 for awhile, mostly cause he is such a big kid! We had a pretty boring day on his birthday with so much going on around our place. My mom took us to McDonald's so Cade could play in the play place. We also went on a big exciting trip to Wal-Mart and Cade got a little fishing rod and big ball for his birthday. I am a boring mom and didn't even wrap them for him. He still loved them and didn't seem to care.

My mom had a party for Cade, Casey and Jesse's birthday on Sunday. Cade and Casey share a birthday and Jesse's isn't until this coming Friday. It was a good time with the all the family and Cade got usual!

Justin got Cade some little lacrosse sticks that he LOVES! He has been sleeping with them for the past couple of nights. This is Justin teaching Cade how they work. He doesn't quite get it, but still loves the idea.
Cade enjoying the party...he wouldn't put the hat on though!

The birthday boys!

Julie and Jenna...she is such a good aunty!

This past week was also really busy around the house. Jesse has been busy working on the yard. He got a tonne done thanks to the help from many! He built a fire pit, garden, and a couple of planters. He also got all of the fence posts in and the dirt spread. Next step is the sod...which I cannot wait for! He has worked so hard so we can have a yard and I love him to death!!

My grandparents came over and helped me plant my garden because I really have no idea what I'm doing! They are such wonderful grandparents and would do anything for any of us. I got lots of gardening advice and hope that everything grows now and I don't kill it. It is kind of fun, but I feel like it is a big job to take on. Now I just need to plant flowers...the fun stuff!

I have been busy with Shade and trying to grow my business. I think I had 10 shows in May...which was great, but kind of insane with everything going on. We are lucky to have family so close to help us out. May has been a little ridiculous, so we hope June slows down just a tad so we can get out and enjoy the nice weather and our little kids!
