While I was still in Arkansas without the other half of my people, I got this email of a picture of Ella working away during her final days of second grade. I was SO READY to see Mike and my big kids!
Meanwhile back in Arkansas, the babies and I were off to Mimi and Pop's house in Van Buren. Milo immediately turned into a little country boy and spent his days naked in the back yard all day every day watching cows, playing with his new pet turtle and eating all meals and snacks out of the back of his dump truck...
And OF COURSE with the blankey too :)
Miss Mae also go acquainted with the great outdoors :)
Mimi and I took the babies to a swim park on one hot and sweltering day. This was a first for Olli and she LOVED it! This was Milo's first time swimming since last year and he has decided that swimming is fun too!
The joy though...
Soon after got here, Olli turned 8 months!
And it was all fun and games until Olli ended up with hand, foot, mouth disease :(
I also got these pics of my handsome hubby and was missing my man!
Mommy and Mimi got out to take the kids to ride the train in Fort Smith...the train wasn't running that day but we had fun at the park!
We made our way back to Springdale to pick up Mike and the kids and get ready for the early birthday and wedding festivities to come!
First thing on the agenda when Ella and Luca got here was to RIDE THE TRACTOR!
Mom and I spent many days on the patio and it was lovely! We enjoyed ourselves so much that time flew by Bitsy woke up from her nap and we didn't know! Poor baby!
Milo channeling his inner puppy. I've added that to the list of possibilities for Halloween costumes!
Modeling birthday outfits from her early party!
Before all the festivities began, I snuck over to Granny and Grandpas to hang one more time and made sure to get to lunch with Kimberly. The Ernie to my Bert! It doesn't matter how long we are here, there never seems to be enough time for it all.
Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name!
