Summer Fun

 Oh, the care-free days of being 2 and a half!
Swim suit and "click-clack" shoes...that's just how she rolls these days!
Sometimes even firefighters have to go to SAM'S to stock up on the necessities.
Tonitown Grape Fest...Spaghetti Dinner -- YUMMY!
"Look, long noodles"
Me and my girlie
Splash pad fun!
Giving Ms Mermaid a little shower
So proud of her sunflower that is bigger than all of us now!
Its a dirty job, but someone has to do it!
She would have washed this same spot all afternoon!
Thankfully Daddy was supervising...
Enjoying a calm morning on the lake.
Sweet girl even poses for pictures while she waits for Mommy to get her hair cut.

The other night Addison and I were playing upstairs before bed and she handed her Elmo doll a princess wand and said...

"Here Elmo, here your scepter."

Excuse me, what was that last word?  Not one that we typically throw around?!?  So what does a mom do...Goggle it of course!  Sure enough, girlfriend has added another word to her vocabulary and is using it correctly.  Now I need to figure out what show, movie or song taught her this magical word.  Ha!

Made By M.E. Update

Seems life and cakes and a toddler and cookies and a growing baby bump have all gotten in the way of blogging lately?!  And even though its been months since my last Made By M.E. update, I've been busier than ever in the kitchen.  I happy (and relieved) to say that I have stopped taking orders now and don't anticipate getting fully back into the swing of things until maybe mid-October...I'm taking some time for me...and the baby!

Tulsa Zoo

We took advantage of the gorgeous weekend last week and headed over to Tulsa for one last little day adventure as a family of 3.

Addison had a ball looking at all the animals!
Favorite animal...no surprise...FLAMINGOS!  We had to visit them a couple of times. :)

 Least favorite part...frogs?!?!  John made an innocent comment about frogs as we entered the Zoo (mind you there were none in sight) and Addison freaked out, it actually took her a couple of exhibits to recover.  Who knew the comment was going to trigger such a reaction.   John blames me...about every other week I have a frog trapped in the garage or the pool for him to dispose of when he gets home from work.  Seems Addison and I both have a fear that we will have to get over?!?

Soaking Up Summer!

We are soaking up summer and enjoying ourselves before the craziness of life with a new baby begins!
Addison would eat watermelon all day, every day if I let her!
Checking out what she can see from atop her 'fort' on her swing set.
So happy to be playing on her swing set...
Addison and I hit up the $2 Kids Summer Movies...it was her first time at the movie theater...she ate almost an entire $5 bag of popcorn herself!
Even princesses need their beauty sleep...she wore this dress for almost a week straight!?
Addison did the obstacle course just like the big boys at Landon's Tough Mudder birthday party.
Love these 2!
She is a serious swimmer now...the sprinkle goggles are a must!
Thanks Mimi for sending Addison her first PlayDoh set...she asks for it most days before her feet even hit the ground as she rolls out of bed!
Splash Pad Fun!
Only made better by the fact that Cousin Landon was with us at the Splash Pad.
Yes, she is trying to drink the water?!
Swimming fun with friends...
Thank you Polar Vortex...we actually were able to play outside and didn't need to be in the pool!
Addison convinced me to get in the lake and swim with her...
