Ok for all those people who read our blog and then tell us that we never put family pictures on there, here you go. This is the most recent family picture that we had taken this weekend. We hope that you enjoy it! We hope to hear from you.
Wow, what a wonderful week we had last week as we were able to let Hailey play with her cousins Danny and Mia who visited us from the Netherlands. The kids played so well together and every morning when we would wake up Hailey wanted to go to the door and see her cousins. She loved being able to go to the zoo, the children's museum and just play every day at Papa and Mimi's house. During the visit, Danny (who is almost five) told us that he wished Hailey didn't have to go home and that Hailey was there's...it was so cute and just melted your heart. It was so neat to watch them share their toys, and do pretty much everything together.
John and I were able to get some time to be with his sister Carrie and her husband Jason during the week as well. We enjoyed dinners out and LOTS of shopping as we helped Carrie get a lot of things checked off her list. It was so nice to see them and just enjoy time together. We are so thankful that they were willing to come and be with us....
All in all it was a long week as we all are pretty much exhausted, but it was one of those week where each day was a new blessing and a moment to remember. We are so thankful to have such wonderful family and we love them all so much!
Enjoy the many pictures we have posted of the kids playing!
Here are some pictures of Hailey playing with one of her best friends Owen Stout....they had a great time playing in the pool outside, even if Owen wasn't so sure about getting in at first. After a while, he started to really like the water and he even started splashing Hailey (which she had no problem with it)! But then Hailey wanted to escape and climb out of the pool so she could walk. They also had a great time playing with some of Hailey's toys inside and we called it a day when they both were exhausted. It was a great time for the kids to play together and for Rebecca and I to have some time together as well.
We finally were able to take some pictures of Hailey walking and so I hope you will enjoy these. She is always so proud when she walks all by herself and then will turn around and see that we are not right behind her. She is growing up so fastly and we are loving all the new phase she is going through. We thought she was fast with crawling, you should check her out when she walks!
