Girls just wanna have fun.

Turn up your speakers cause this song pretty much says it all. Us girls just wanna have fun.

And get all pretty.

Eva painting Greg's nails.

They both love the Exer saucer.

Bounce house fun.

One day they will look back and say, "Mom did you have to dress us alike?"

and I will say, "Absolutely!"

Water babies!

Don't ask.

And after all that fun we need sleep.

and lots

Of sleep.

Happy Father's Day

There is a very special bond that Daddies and daughters share. I realized that more now that I see Greg with Eva and Layla but it also reminds me of my own relationship with my Father. Greg is just such a softy when it comes to his little girls. He loves to baby them and treat them like the little princesses they are. It's funny to see Greg looking so tough all done up in his military uniform to walk through the door, throw off his hat, drop his bags and pick up Eva and Layla kissing them and telling them how much he missed them while he was gone. They really melt his heart. Just the other night it was bed time and Greg carried Eva (like a princess) to her room. And I thought, "Awww he gave her a princess ride." It almost made me cry because it reminded me of my own Dad.

He is a very sweet man but has a tough side too. He is the kind of man that was good at intimidating a boyfriend or two. He loves to hunt and fix things. He likes sports and is good at just about anything he tries to do. He is a real man's man. But when it came to me and my sisters he new just what little girls liked. He did puppet shows, took us on Daddy Daughter dates, and bought us flowers for special occasions. He would give princess rides (or whatever request Michelle had that night of how she wanted to be carried to bed) without complaint. He never made us do the "man jobs" around the house like taking out trash or mowing the lawn. He treated us like little ladies and therefore wanted us to act like it. I remember him telling us not to burp at the table or fart in front of people because it wasn't lady like. (Although Greg might think I forgot about that rule) I am so thankful that I have a wonderful father that has given me many good memories. Thank you for always treating me like a lady. And even thought I know you would have liked a son you did really well with a house full of girls. :) I love you so much Dad, and I'm so proud of you for all that you have accomplished and for the life that you live today.

And I am so thankful for you Greg, for being such a loving husband and father. I love you so much. Happy Father's day to both of you.

Medicine Park

A few weeks ago we went to Medicine Park. It is a beautiful small town that on the weekends comes to life. A lot of people come out see all the little shops, eat at the cafe, walk on the trail along the waters edge, go swimming, feed the ducks and just enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery.

There are lots of pretty waterfalls.

And Eva loves to feed the ducks. There are also turtles and fish that Eva had fun looking at.

Me and little Layla. It was really hot that day which makes it hard to keep Layla cool and out of the sun. But she was a good sport and didn't complain.

And Little Eva just stopping to fix her shoe before she takes off on another run down the trail.

It was a really fun day but of course it wouldn't be complete without a quick stop for some fossil hunting.
Greg: "Look I think I found a dinosaur tooth!"
I love my husband. :)
