Tuesday Ramblings

I love these pictures. I don't know how old I was in this picture, but it reminds me of the numerous weekends we spent in the mountains camping when I was a child. Some of my fondest memories are from those trips. We would play basketball with pine cones and deer turds, awesome I know :) I love that Haylee and Josh re-created this awesome memory of mine! Haylee only played with pine cones though.

Haylee missed her first day of school today. She woke up around midnight with a fever and wasn't feeling so hot this morning. Her fever hasn't come back since and she has felt fine all day thank God.

But Natalee on the other hand, is not feeling so great tonight. She woke up from her nap with a fever and it hasn't went away. I'm not sure what they picked up but this mysterious fever with no other symptoms needs to go away. I have a feeling I'm in for another long night!

Gym time is going great. Josh is my personal trainer when it comes to figuring out the equipment. I can definitely feel the progress.

Last week Daddy met us for lunch at Chick-fil-a and the girls got to play too. I wish we could do that weekly but Josh is just swamped with work.
We all went to Big Surf this past weekend with our free tickets and had a blast. I don't think I've ever been there before but we sure had fun. The adults traded off watching the kids so that we could go on the slides too. The girls loved swimming around and Haylee loved the "otter slides" for little kids. Neither girl liked the wave pool but it was a blast trying not to get knocked out by the people on rafts. Of course, it was all fun and games until the last slide Josh and I went down. We were in a double tube and as soon as the tube hit the water, the front went down and the back (along with Josh) flew forward and Josh landed right on top of me. Not cool. And as if that wasn't bad enough, everyone who used the Coppertone sunscreen (us and my Mom) ended up sun burnt. I covered the girls good and even re-applied and they both ended up burned in random spots.

Natalee has entered the stage of dress up shoes. Everytime I tell her to get her shoes on I hear the clopping sound of the little plastic Princess shoes. Cracks me up. She'll actually walk out into the garage with them until I catch her and tell her to put on more appropriate shoes. She's a nut!
That's about all I can remember to ramble about right now. My Mom's birthday is Thursday and I'm excited to take her to dinner and a movie. Also, I'm taking her to get a pedicure before our vacation next week. We leave for California (just my Mom and I) in just 10 days!!!!
