Paige Pearl's visit!

We had a great time with Paige Pearl and Aunt Carrie Beth when they came to visit. It was so fun to see the cousins play together and be silly. We enjoyed a visit to Grant's Farm and loved feeding the goats and llamas. Everyone enjoyed a cold beverage and kettle corn (aka....freckled corn) too! :) :) :) No trip to St. Louis with kids is complete without a trip to our awesome FREE Zoo!! The girls had a blast in the Childrens Zoo and meeting a new pet turtle. We also were able to take advantage of the Stingray exhibit. Emma, Ava & Paige were super excited to pet the Stingrays and Aunt Carrie got a bath she wasn't expecting....too funny! Ooh well, we didn't know it was pouring rain outside and everyone was wet at the end of our trip anyway!
Thanks for coming to see us! Love you!!

Emma G turned 3!!

It is so hard to believe that our little Emma G is now 3! She is such an amazing little girl, so sweet, so smart and such a great Big sister. We had a fun birthday party and were so lucky to have Josh, Krisha and adorable Shepherd Grace here to celebrate with us! Emma loved her new school house, writing easel, new Tag reading system, jewelry box and especially her new book "Big Sister, Little Sister" from baby Ava. We are reading it everyday and I love how it talks about the personalities of each sister which fit our girls to a T. Thank you to all our awesome friends for joining in the birthday festivities with us. Dad made yummy burgers with grilled corn in the husk and homemade pickles and ice cream. I think the pickles were a favorite.....curry, wine brine and spicy. He used easy recipe from Food & Wine magazine. Mom was in charge of the cake which was an all day adventure but Emma loved it! Happy Birthday to our "first baby"!

Our trip to see GG!

We were finally able to visit our GG in Sioux Falls, SD this summer! It was baby Ava's first time to meet GG, but you wouldn't have know it! Ava is at such an adorable age right now. After many months of loving and kissing her all the time, she is finally giving us hugs and kisses back! Many times on our trip she would say "I want GG". Emma and Ava loved spending time with GG, Uncle Jon (aka GGs dad), Aunt Liz, Uncle Chuck, and cousin Charlie! They enjoyed an outing to an amazing park, a fun morning at the science center with GG, and lots of play time with Aunt Liz and Charlie. Thanks for a wonderful visit to all! We Miss You!!
