Lost but Found after a long weekend

When Kinley started her new daycare this summer there were only a few babies there, but since school as started back there are a bunch more in there. More kids equals more excitement but less nap time. She usually takes 2 big naps a day, but all last week she only got one a day in. She was just too busy playing with all the new babies to get that second nap in. And though she was a peach at daycare she feel apart when she got home and wanted to go to bed at 6:30pm and then was up at 5:45 am. It was more than exhausting for this momma; let me tell ya! At any given moment she would just have a melt down. Exhibit A.... meltdown for 46 week picsBut it didn't take long for her to dry her tears up and give me smile!And she even blew me a few kisses too!And Friday afternoon Micah Claire finally got a hair cut! She has been begging me for months to let her get her hair cut off and I just couldn't do it. So we finally compromised and got about 4 inches cut off. Now she's back to begging me let her get her ears pierced.... but I just can't do it yet!Friday night we headed to Badger Stadium for Meet the Badgers! MC got to sport her new badger cheerleading uniform...she was more than excited about it!My little girl.....just isn't so little anymore

She had a blast jumping in the bouncy house and she only came out of it to..........

see to her Andrea! She also got to watch Andrea and the drill team perform for the very first time and she LOVED it too!

After Andrea performed we had to cut out... it was just to dang hot for me... I mean Kinley to be sitting outside. So, we headed to poppa's shop for some dinner. Kinley has totally fallen in love with MC's old tricycle!

Poppa got to feed Cooper a bottle while we were there; We sure to love this little boy!

Then after we got home and had a bath.....yet another melt down
Saturday we headed Cooper's party at jump zone in Benton

Couldn't help but post these sweet pics of my girls! We all had a blast at this place; even Kinley had a great time playing in some of the small bouncy houses!

After the party we headed Target and had a fun but exhausting afternoon of shopping. And poor Kinley bugs was give out. Sunday at 9AM she went down for her usual 30-40 nap and slept till almost 11:30. Dad and MC went to church alone while I stayed home with her. When she woke up she was FINALLY back to her happy self! Then at 2 she took another 2.5 hour nap and all charged up and ready to go!

We spent the rest of the evening at Nana and Poppa's. Kinley got her first wagon ride and she loved every minute of it!

L-O-V-E This pic!!!!
Kinley even had fun playing (and sometimes eating) the sidewalk chalk!

They say actions speak louder than words.... and this picture proves it! When Shawn and I got married and moved to Louisiana for a few years, it was our time to grow, to learn, and mesh our lives. But when we moved back it was for family! We are so very blessed that my mom, Stan, My dad, and Ms.Debbie love our children more than anything in this world. They truly have made their grandchildren the center of their worlds. They don't take a second for grant it and they enjoy the simple everyday moments with them!
