what's missing?

hmmmm...a diaper! i put chloe down for her nap today without any pants on because I thought she might be too warm! When I went in to get her up she was standing up smiling at me, with NO diaper on! She very quickly picked up her diaper and handed it to me! Luckily she had NOT gone to the bathroom in her crib yet! Thank heavens! From now on...we are ALWAYS wearing pants! :)

Oh, what a beautiful day...

Yesterday we met Mandy, Abby, Brynn and Ally at the park for lunch. The girls fed the ducks, blew bubbles and played in the park and on the swings. I attempted to feed Chloe lunch...but the swings and playscape were calling her name! It was such a beautiful was fun to spend it with friends!

When Nate got home we all went for a bike ride. By this time, it was getting to get a bit windy! I attempted to actually video part of our bike ride-probably not the safest idea...but I included it below. It is NOT easy...don't try this at home kids! Please ignore my annoying voice, (ughh!!) and the wind that was blowing which gets kinda loud!

Best 3 Bucks I Ever Spent!

Today Chloe and I stopped by a Sample Sale/Garage Sale in our neighborhood. I decided to splurge and spend a whopping $3 on this Little Tikes slide....and boy was it worth it! Chloe loves it! She can do it all by herself and she even let "Baby" go down the slide! She seriously probably played with the slide for 45 minutes this afternoon! Yea!!! Gotta love it! :)

Ella Bella & Crazy Chloe

Today sweet Ella came over to play with Chloe. Ellas mommy had a doctors appointment for their new baby, Avery, so Chloe and Ella read books, colored, fought over the plastic pickle jar (?!) and played chase. Then tonight I was getting ready to leave for Bunko and came into the living room to leave and found my crazy daughter with pants on her head! I think that Chloe had fun with her daddy while I was gone, even if she was wearing pajama pants on her head!

whats wrong with this picture?

i'll tell ya...its A.M.! Yes, this morning I got up at the crack of dawn to sign Chloe up for preschool! I arrived around 3 and I was the 4th person there. The first of whom arrived at 9 p.m the night before! Oh, the things we do to get our kids into preschool! I had actually planned on getting there around 5, but couldn't sleep so I figured I might as well "not sleep" in the parking lot! By 5:00 there were at least 10 I guess it was a good thing I got there when I did, and...the good news is that Chloe got in!
