Getting Comfortable

We've been living in this house for about two months now.
Kids are in school and things are becoming more normal now. Even though it's only been two months it seems like forever since we were in the little twin home.
The ducks that live in the little pond had some ducklings the week we moved in.
It's been fun watching them get bigger. They will come so close to get food from you.

The kids have started a little collection of golf balls. Almost every afternoon they go out searching for more.
There are tons of them! Especially around the pond. The kids even sat outside and sold some to golfers passing by. We actually had a golfer hit and break one of the windows in the garage.
He was so nice and came up to the door promising to have it fixed. What a nice guy!
(It did in fact get fixed.. 280$ later.. I'm so glad the golfer was honest and paid to have it fixed!)

Anna got her first job- at Walmart!
It's fun to run into her all the time while we shop.

As a treat we took the kids out to eat.

Baby Gemma already almost a month old!

I couldn't resist! I love, love, love matching!

The little girls love Gemma. They love looking at her little hands and feet.
Its been so fun having a little baby around again.

While watching Jack at soccer practice the little girls get to play at a little park close by.
I love how Lila isn't afraid to go down the slide!

After practice Lila found a soccer ball and started kicking it around!
It was so cute!! I love that you can hear her breathing, she's working hard!
I think that we have another soccer player in the family!

The Aquarium

My cousin Dani and I have been talking about getting together forever!
Finally we were able to meet up at the aquarium!
I always do things with the older kids, but I need to do more with the little girls.

We were a little early, so we played outside.
Lila wasn't up for taking pictures!

Dani and her kids got there and it was like our girls have been playing together everyday their whole lives!

Lila is getting fast! I couldn't take my eye's off of her.

Lila loved the penguins!

After checking out about half of the place we all kind of took a break and let the kids play.
Sirri has the coolest curly hair!
Tanner was getting ready for a nap..

The girls would have been happy to just play there the rest of the time, but we still hadn't seen the SHARKS!
Lila wondering off again!
We are going to need to get these girls together more often!
I was done! In the stroller you go!

Saved the best for last- Sharks!

I love that a Grandma told my girls to be careful and not to run :)

Lots of sharks in that huge tank
A young lady was there teaching everyone about all of the shark and other animals in the tank

After the sharks we walked around the gift-shop. Those silly girls!
Then we went to IKEA for some lunch of Swedish meatballs!
It's funny, we are both Swedish, but not for the family side we have in common.. 
Thanks Dani for such a great day! We have got to get together more often!

Finally the day was here! Lilly had her first day of preschool at Grandma's house!
She had been looking forward to it for days. Plus this week she finally decided to be potty trained!! 

She loved spending a couple of hours with her cousins. Coloring, reading stories, cutting things out and making a craft. Thank you Grandma!
Lilly's birthday is coming up! Only a couple more weeks!
I decided to take some pictures of her.
She can't wait for her "Frozen" birthday party!
It's hard to smile with lip-gloss on. You just want to rub your lips together all the time!

I know so many of these are basically the same.. but she's just so cute!!

I knew once we got this shot that it would be the one I would use for her invitation and party!
Such a pretty girl. I sure am lucky she's mine!
