Iowa Summer Vacation 2016

We had so much fun in Iowa with Grandpa and Grandma. On the way there, we stopped at a new hotel with WATERSLIDES. Ellie also went "swimming"for the first time.
We had plenty of cousin time.
I love this next picture. Anytime Ellie needed to sleep (and be out of the way)...we would put her underneath the table in the living room. No little boys would accidentally run in to her (or touch her face). Plus we could easily hear her when she cried:)
The kids did their own parade where they threw out candy.
The boys loved the waterslide.
Aunt Lori made an adorable doll for Ellie:
Jay got to drive the mower:
We went to Oak Grove:

Andy's Shark Birthday Party

Andy is in Love with all things "Shark", so he requested a shark party. (Ironically he is fairly petrified of real sharks at the aquarium). We waited until the end of May to have the party because baby was due on his birthday. We ended up having the party on Memorial Day because that is what worked out. I started a post a month ago, but I'm just getting around to posting it now. The Invite:
The Cake(s) and food:
The Decorations:
We had a great turnout, awesome weather and a fabulous time!
