Visitors from up north

My good friend Kendra and her family came down for a visit to Texas from Wisconsin a few weeks ago. Unfortunately we didn't get to hang out much but I was so glad to see her for the short time. We went to Jack Carter Pool with her daughter Macie and then Pierce also came along to play. It was lots of fun but HOT!

 Evie waving to everyone!

 Pierce comforting Macie after a fall--how sweet!
 Evie trying to figure out what this "noodle" was...

 Snack time! Well and trying to take a picture of them all looking...not so successful
We went out to Babe's Chicken for dinner with the Mccords and the Halls--YUM! We miss you guys and hope to visit you soon!

A lttle hose fun

Evie loves to play in our backyard baby pool and has recently discovered the HOSE! She loves to hold it, spray the water, and even drink from it. So much fun!

So on our way to Evie's one year appointment about a month ago, Evie started crying in the back seat. I looked back to see what was the matter and she had her foot stuck in a book! Her cry quickly became a scream and I felt so bad for her but was kinda laughing at the same time! We got to the doctor's office and I of course "rescued" her foot from the "foot-eating" book!
The damsel in distress! (yes kinda breaks your heart)

Lake Travis

A few weekends ago we went to my Sister-in-laws parents lake house at Lake Travis. It was so much fun and relaxing. They have a gorgeous lake house and recently just added a pool and baby area so it was perfect for Evie to play in. We mostly relaxed at the pool all day but also took out the boat and jet skis. It was so much fun and I hope to be invited back soon :)!

 Evie playing in the waterfall

 Evie "jumping" into the pool--yes she is fearless at only ONE!

 Spinning round and round!

The beautiful house and backyard
Ali playing with Evie in the kiddie part of the pool
 Playing in the bubbler and with a rock (of course!)
 Well it is supposed to be an infiniti pool, but the lake was SO LOW that is wasn't quite one...but still beautiful!

Watch out, Evie's got a gun!
Super Dad!
Evie hanging with Uncle T and Aunt Ali
 Water break!
Such a cutie!
Floatin with Uncle T
 Evie on the boat--not too much a fan---big life jacket not letting her move much and the wind was strong in her face
 The boat crew
 Evie exploring the boat

 Still not quite sure...
 Well Evie lasted almost an hour on the boat but was pretty unhappy in her life jacket so we cut the boat trip short
Matt the "grill master". We grilled our favorite steaks in "Ron's secret marinade"

Yay for Lake Travis!
All smiles with the coolest Uncle and Aunt!

Those pearly whites!

Evie has finally gotten some teeth in. She got her bottom 2 at 7 months and not until a month ago did she finally get her top 4 teeth---yes ALL at once! And yes, on her birthday--not a fun day. See below--

 Cutting top four teeth AND a horrible diaper rash, makes for an UNbirthday :(

But since we now have 6 whole teeth I figured it was time to introduce THE TOOTHBRUSH! Evie definitely caught on fast and LOVES to brush her teeth (well it is more of a CHEW than brush, but I'll take it!)

 And it is only cool to brush in the NUDE
And play the piano while you brush---look at those cute buns!

4th of July

So as you see I am still playing catch the 4th of July seems like forever ago...

My mom was still here the 4th of July and we had a relaxing day after the birthday weekend festivities. We hung out at home, cooked some good 'ole american hotdogs, and went to the Roughriders baseball game and watched fireworks. 

 Evie playing with her new water table

 We had to strip her as she was getting so wet
 At the Roughriders game--Evie even got to be on the Jumbotron a few times (thanks to her grandpa working in AV :)

 Very intrigued by the game
 Watching the fireworks---Evie was a little unsure about them....
