Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

As soon as Chris gets home from work we are headed to camp for the night! I'm excited! We will hopefully get to take the baby to the little mini zoo/animal park thing at the Farmer's Inn since it was closed the last time we went to camp. I prepared chocolate covered graham crackers to use for smore's and i sliced up strawberries to take to add to them. MMMmmmMMM chocolate, strawberries, marshmallows, and graham crackers! And homemade ice cream since my dad is taking his ice cream maker! I just love that Chris took a vacation day and is off monday for the holiday, so I feel like we get double weekend this week!
Anyways, I just wanted to post again really fast to keep myself in the habit of remembering to post haha. Some BIG changes are in store for our family soon but I can't post about them yet. So any of you who are reading make sure you check  back to see what they are!
Ok that's it from me have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Wow it's been so long!

I cant believe it's been about a month since I posted on here! Too much has been going on I guess. Plus I've been trying to get outside as much as possible! Keeps me from going too insane ha ha. We have been taking Brooke fishing with us to the pond we like to go to. She seems to like fishing too! She plays with the grass since she can sit independently now. She seems interested in the fish we catch tho we cant let her get too close or she'd try to eat it alive lol. She also tries to eat the end of my fishing pole when I hold her which is so gross. We installed baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs too since now that she's sitting by herself it's only a matter of time till she learns that she can move herself too! She's also starting to "talk" she babbles alot of "baa' baa's so my sister said she wants that to be her name auntie baa baa so that Brooke said her name first lol. It's been really funny listening to her refer to herself as baa baa lol. She also said ma ma a few times which made my heart so happy! We also took her to living treasures animal park she seemed very interested in all the animals she could see! Plus they had a baby camel there and he tried to eat her foot! It was so cute!! I hope to add pictures of that another time when I actually have them in my computer but who knows when or if that will even happen lol! So for now I'm going to end this post since Brooke is on my lap and honestly demanding my attention ha ha she has ahold of my fingers. I think she wants to post too... so here it goes  Brooke's first blog post!!
