1 month already!


We are playing catchup, can you tell? Bridget is actually 6 weeks old now, but here is what she looked like at 1 month weighing in at 10 pounds exactly (she was 7 lbs 10 ounces when she was born). Notice the painted nails? We sure do love this precious baby!

Fathers & Sons

Chris and Levi had their first Fathers & Sons outing. They had a great time! The girls and I had fun painting our nails (even Bridget's), having ice cream sundaes, and watching a movie.

Mastitis

Don't worry, there is no picture included in this post. Just wanted to document that all of the happenings of the previous posts (preschool graduation, dance rehearsals, dance recital, camp invention, and the baby blessing) happened all within 2 1/2 weeks after Bridget was born. Plus, Chris went to scout camp for 4 nights and 3 days during that time. Let's just say I would have died if my parents weren't staying with me for those 2 weeks. So, my first day home alone with all 4 kids (after my parents left) I ended up with a breast infection. I have had this before, so I knew it was coming on. So, that afternoon right when the fever and chills started, I called the doctor, and luckily I didn't have to go in and be seen. They called in a prescription for me so that Chris could pick it up for me on the way home. I collapsed into a feverous delirium (luckily Bridget and Levi slept a good chunk of the afternoon and the girls were playing at a friend's house) The next day I felt like a million bucks compared to the day before. Thank goodness for antibiotics. The moral of the story is...I overdid it the week before. Everytime I have gotten mastitis it has been because I have tried to do too much and not gotten enough sleep. When will I ever learn?

Bridget's Baby Blessing


We decided to bless Bridget on Father's Day. Is there a better way to spend Father's day than to bless your beautiful baby girl? Also, we got to be with both of our dad's that day as well! We're grateful to all of you family members who came and we missed those of you who couldn't (don't worry, we understand)

Look at this good looking group!


Here is Bridget's photo shoot on a pink blanket...she was a little fussy, but we managed to get a few good ones.

Isn't this classic? Levi wanted a turn to get his picture on the pink blanket.

We had everyone come to our house afterward for some yummy food.




It was a hot day, so the kids got creative and ate underneath the tables.



Camp Invention

Madison got to go to Camp Invention for 1 week in Pleasant Grove. This is a program that my sister Annette coordinates. She had a lot of fun using her imagination. One of the activites they do is bring an old appliance, take it apart, and then make an invention with it. First they think of something that bothers them and then they try to invent something to solve it. Madison was bugged by the fact that people are allergic to dogs, so she made a metal dog so that even people with allergies can have a pet dog. I love it!

Classic Katelyn

I captured Katelyn grooving in the aisle. This was my favorite part of the recital. :)
