A day at the lake

Saturday Daniel was off and it was REALLY hot in Branson, so we decided to go to Table Rock Lake. We took the dogs and Dallan with us. The lake was so nice and cold. Ben absolutely loved the water. We would sit on the shore and let the waves splash us. We also went in the floaty boat. Daniel would jump up out of the water and Ben would just smile and giggle! Then the boys took the boat out and jumped off the edge. I took Ben and the pugs for a walk. The dogs liked being with us and being able to get into the water. We stayed there for a few hours and then got so tired and hungry. We stopped by Sonic on the way home. We had such a fun day!

Mothers day

Well this year was my first Mothers day. Ben can't really talk Daniel picked out some special things for me. He had to work on Sunday, but when he got home he gave me this adorable photo frame that says "A mothers love, No greater love". It is so pretty and I can't wait to put a photo in it! Then he gave me a letter that he wrote, printed, decorated and packaged beautifully. He had fun at the Michael's craft store. It was the best gift I have ever received. THen on Tuesday when Daniel was off, he watched Ben while I colored my hair! I used to highlight my hair, but then got married and other things were important, so I am now back in the swing of things and my hair is blonde. We also got to talk to Tucker on Mothers day.

I love my mother! It wasn't until I became one that I fully appreciate her and all that she has done for me.

We have rearranged our room so that my side of the bed is right next to the crib. THe other night we put Ben down and were attempting to use the cry it out method that night (rarely have to do this) and Ben pulled himself up to a standing positions and was trying to peak over the top of the crib. So every little while he would scream and then stand on his tip toes, and try to pull himself up but just couldn't make it. It was sooooooo adorable!

My mother and I decorated flip-flops the other day after she got off work. It was so fun! We each had one pair of brown and one pair of black. We decorated the black ones the same, because we like them so much, but did our brown ones different.

Air show

Friday our little Family went to the new Branson airport for a wonderful air show. We got to see lots of fun planes and helicopters. They had stunt planes and parachuters. The fun thing is they did it at night, so the parachute had flares on and it was neat to watch. Then at the end they had fireworks. It was a really fun evening and Ben had a blast!
