Brayden is 8 Months Old!

Can I just say I can't believe how fast time flies?! Brayden turned 8 months old last week on the 18th. I know I'm posting pictures a little late, but I've been busy getting ready for VBS at our church this week and getting ready for Ashtyn {my future sis-in-law's} bridal shower on Saturday.

Brayden can:
* Hold his own bottle {mommy loves this}
*go from the sitting position to the crawling position
*go from the crawling position to the sitting position
*almost mastered crawling. 
* Brayden has 4 teeth and has 5 & 6 coming in on the top
* Is now trying to climb up on furniture to stand
* Wants to stand up all the time
* I wish I could say he's sleeping through the night, but he still isn't. {grr}

This afternoon I took Brayden out to our yard to take some pictures of him. Enjoy!

Best Friends

Katelyn loves her little friend Brookie. They have so much fun playing with one another. Over the weekend our family went to the Spectrum with some friends to enjoy an event put on by Krochet Kids and Toms Shoes. There was live music, art work, and of course both organizations were there. While we were there Jess and I took the girls for a walk and we stopped at the fountain so that the girls could enjoy some time watching other kids play in the water. I had to get some pictures of the two of them together. I think it's so wonderful that Katelyn is already building life long friendships.

Brayden's little buddy Jacob was there with his mommy and daddy too. Isn't he so cute?!

Fun at the OC Fair

This year we got Super Passes for the OC Fair so we could take the kids and enjoy it as a family. Katelyn loves animals so she was thrilled to visit the pigs, goats, cows and sheep. Even Brayden was enjoying himself... well... till they all started making noise, then he started to cry a little. It was so much fun to spend time as a family, I'm sure we'll be making good use of our passes this summer.

Of course, this I'm not so sure about! I can guarantee you that I won't be eating here this summer!

Summer Fun

Here are some of the fun things we've been up to so far this summer.

Kyle and I went to an Angels game with the Shumards. Cheers Jess!!

We enjoyed some water fun at the Spectrum.

Watched a movie when it was too hot to play outside.

Had a tickle fest.

Had a bbq and enjoyed some s'mores with our neighbors.

Enjoyed some watermelon by the pool.

Sorry it's been so long...

Isn't she too cute for words?!

Big Bang 4th of July!

This year we had such a wonderful 4th of July beginning new traditions that we hope will continue for years to come. One of the most wonderful parts of being a home owner is great neighbors and neighborhoods. This year we went over to our neighbors house for a bbq. The food was delicious and it was so much fun to watch all the kids play together. Our neighbors have a 9 year old, 6 year old and 19 month old and Katelyn loves to play with them. As it started to get dark I ran home to give Brayden a bath and put him to bed before fireworks. We bundled up Katelyn and off we went back out to the street in front of our house {praise Jesus for monitors} to do fireworks. Our street does 4th of July to the T. We saw big {illegal} fireworks and then enjoyed all the smaller ones we had all bought. Brayden slept though the entire thing!!! Hopefully he'll be more up to enjoying it next year. I'm looking forward to many more years of bbqing and doing fireworks with our family and our neighbors.

Didn't you know that the Circles don't go to an event anymore without cupcakes?!
