Fun Day

Yesterday I took Elena to her 1st pool party! Her friend Sierra turned 3 and she had an Ariel themed bash. It was really cute. :)

Sierras mom is teh thriftiest person I know! She bought a clearance pinata and just decorated it for the party. What a GREAT idea! She made a cute cake that looked the a beach/ocean.

I was so happy to see fresh fruit for the kids to eat too! Elena enjoyed some grapes, watermelon and banana before enjoying a little chocolate ice cream and cheetos. Oh yes, and we can't forget the dark chocolate M&M's she devoured. :)

She definitely LOVED playing in the kiddie pool. I really want to go and get her one. It would give me the opportunity to lay out and get some sun while she plays in the water. This is the one I want to get.

I really hope that I can do it soon. Next week I will be getting my acrylics filled, so I'll have to wait till my next spending bit of spending cash comes in.

Anyway, so Elena went swiming and after the girls went straight to the back porch area to crack open the pinata! Elena would NOT pull the string because she thought it would make a loud sound. Ugh. Oh well, she did get lots of candy though!

After we wrapped it up outside the girls got dressed in dry clothes and it was time for presents!

Here is Sierra opening our gift!

Elena got to watch Sierra while enjoying some yummy candy. She didn't seem to mind not getting presents this way! :)

She really liked the blue lollipop. :)

After most of the guests left Elena and Sierra decided it was time to play dress up.

I busied myself holding the CUTEST baby boy EVER!!!!

Baby Caleb!

Yep. That was the party. I really think Elena has a great time. :)

Well, talk to you all later this week!

In Christ Who Is Worthy,

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
