Lake Trip 2014

The last full week of July we made it out to our yearly lake trip. It was my 4th year going and Emily's first year outside of the womb. =] It was pretty fun. The weather was really nice the whole time. It stormed on us once. Our camp was blown around for a little while but we survived.  We also made a trip up to Lambert's and to the zoo in Branson. That was really fun but it was so hot. Emily did pretty well the whole time. Well except for a few nights but she was still getting used to the place. Taylor's grandparents let us borrow their camper and that was so nice, especially with a baby. If it got too hot we could just bring her in there and stay cool.  Plus she wouldn't wake everyone in the campsite up at night.  I didn't get a whole bunch of pictures but here's the ones I did get. 

Dawn and I

Taylor and his Dad (can you tell?)

No, they're not related. 

Our little fire. We had marshmallows and s'mores. 

Strike a pose. 

Family pic! Emily was already asleep at this point. 

Canadian geese. My favorite kind of bird. 

Aren't they beautiful?

I said I was going to take a pic of Taylor in his natural habitat. HAHA just kidding about that I hope he knows. ;]

Mr. Rollie Pollie. 

Good morning!

Beer can lights. No camping trip is complete without them. There was no alcohol involved. 

Morning Bible. 

This guy was on this cool surfboard pushy thing.

Pop was on his vacation so they came and visited us for a few minutes. 

I HATEEEETTEETESADFAJKFEEKJOFEFAJ Spiders. but I thought this was pretty cool!

We found the cove at Big Clifty. 

Silly Goose.

Animals and Birds

I have been accumulating some photos of birds and animals over the past few months and I got enough that I could make a blog post about it.  =]

I MAY be wrong, but these birds are Snipes. (who knew there was actually a bird called a snipe?!)

This is blurry but I caught him drinking some water! 

An ugly ol' Armadillo!

Mr. Cardinal waiting on the fence. 

I think this is some sort of woodpecker. 

Mr and Mrs. Cardinal enjoying the snow. 

I don't know why this picture is snowing...but ok. 

This doe was in our backyard. 

I could have sworn I got a picture of a bee on these flowers but I didn't, so heres. a picture of some flowers. 

This is my parent's neighbors cute little pup. 

Two pairs of ducks. 

All my ducks in a row. 

It's funny, these gees were not letting those ducks get too close. They would run them off. 

I love Canadian Geese. They are my favorite bird. A while back we had 20 or 30 on our pond at once. 

'Ol Oscar a few days before we got his haircut.

I'm glad I got a good reflection on this one. 


Playing catch =]

We have two beavers on our pond. 


I wish I could turn this!

Emily is 2 months!

Wow! I can't believe how quickly these 2 months have went by! I also can't believe it's been a whole month since I have done a blog. think I'm busy? haha! I actually sat down to do one the other day and I SWORE in the blog that I would not let anything keep me from finishing the blog...well a week or so has gone by so I obviously gave up!  Oh well, I am starting fresh with this one!

I can't believe how much Emily has changed in just one month. She has started to get a personality. She is REALLY happy (98% of the time)! Whenever Taylor or I walk into the room her legs go crazy and she starts smiling! She is getting used to the camera too. =]

I asked her if she was going to help me with my blog today and this were the reactions I got...because of course like any person who talks to a baby I ask the same question 100 times in a high pitched voice just to see if they react! haha!

We started on somewhat of a schedule when she was about a month old and we have stuck with it and it is working really well. We start our morning between 6:30-7:30.  I feed her either when she wants or every 2-3 hours or before we leave for any long journey. About 7:30 at night we do bath, feed and bed by 8.  She normally sleeps until 2.  I set my alarm anyway just in case because I don't want her to go more than 6 hours without eating for now.  Then we go back to sleep until about 5:30-6:30 and I get up and open the bedroom door and peek out at Taylor (who is up by 4:30 for work) and he knows that means I want coffee haha!

We have Emily's 2 month appointment tomorrow so we will see how much she weighs!! I'm guessing 10#8oz....maybe a little heavier. She's a growing girl!

Happy 2 months little girl!
Here she is next to Kow! I have to make a side by side of last months.
Emily was baptized into our covenant family a few Sundays ago! She slept through the whole thing but that's OK. May God grant her faith in his time. =] LOOK AT THAT HANDSOME DADDY!
Why do we look so sad?
I told her to be cautious...

Doesn't she look like my dad in this picture? So funny!

Here she is posing with Kow and her shirt made by her BCF!

The other day we caught her sucking her thumb! Too cute!

The hat is a little too big!

Taylor being the wonderful daddy that he is!! =]] I sure do love them both!

Do you think that shirt is a little small for her now? She fit in it like a month ago! This is her lazy fat man pose haha!

She had a grip on that brush so I helped her brush her hair!
We took pictures the other day!

I'm thinking this would make a good meme?
Such a little thinker!
