Nothing special about this unless you love pure cuteness. The video will turn right side up in a couple seconds. This is just Kelsi taking her sweet time (with her walking stick).

Memorial Day weekend




We had a great Memorial Day weekend. We went on a little walk through the English Point Trail system. Kelsi was really slow. She is afraid of vegetation...that's right...scared of it. So for the most part she stayed in the middle of the trail and would stop and point at things and then start walking backwards. We would have to pick her up and catch up with our group. As you can see, she even carried around a walking stick!


When we were leaving, Kelsi got to pet a pretty horse, or a "Dah" (dog) as she calls any animal.

Kelsi has also mastered the art of going up and down the stairs. FINALLY!!! We had a great BBQ and fun time lounging on the deck and playing games with friends.

First swim of the season
Kelsi likes the pool much more than she did last year. She loved to "lounge" in the water (just like her mom). She was so content.





I also tried to teach her how to jump in to me. She caught on quick and started raising her arms up in the air when I counted to three, and by the end of the afternoon she started to lean towards me as I counted. A couple more times and I am sure she will be jumping into my arms. She LOVED it.

Further proof that I am an incompetent mother
Yesterday, when I went to get Kelsi out of daycare at the gym, she looked a little different than when I dropped her off. One of the babysitters had given her hair a french braid! What a cutie! I was so excited and then dumbfounded on how she managed to sit still and let her do that? Kelsi hates it when I just brush her hair, let alone put pigtails in it, which is the extent of my hair knowledge.

She has such beautiful THICK hair. There are so many possibilities, and I only do 3. Pig tails, ponytail or ponytail on the side with a clip. Anyone willing to help be become a better mother by teaching me how to french braid??

Springtime on Hayden Lake


We hope everyone enjoyed their Mother's Day. (shout out to my mom and mother-in-law for being so great). We decided to send Debbie a little belated mother's day gift...pictures from her front door!





Tree in the driveway....finally bloomed! It is so pretty!







Your daffodills! (The tulips should open up this week sometime)



Your backyard...



Here are a couple gifts for the both of you...pics of us with your favorite granddaughter!




P.S. I cut my hair...
A not-so-dramatic A-line bob. If John likes it, I may go shorter...he was leary...we'll see what he thinks when he gets home tomorrow night!

Randoms for the grandparents!

Kelsi's hair is so long...it is almost to her shoulder blades when it is wet. I pulled it up in a ponytail before church today. She hates having her hair done, she whines the whole time.
Kelsi has recently started to want to climb on everything....




including daddy.....

I should have got a side view of this...but I told her to give Lucky a kiss...and she did! She also loves to put her head on their backs and rest. They are so gentle with her. John let them in the house this weekend, and Kelsi took her blanket and went and laid next to them on the rug that they were laying on (sick and cute at the same time)...she loves her "daws".
