Madagascar Birthday Party

We were so excited to celebrate Ryker's 1st birthday and Kolten's 3rd birthday with family and friends. Kolten and big brother Madden had been really excited about Madagascar 3 coming out, so we decided to do a 'Madagascar' themed birthday party. Kolten had fun helping me pick out some of the activities and food for his party. He loved his Madagascar balloons, the madagascar tattoos, the drawing activities, and especially- the penguin pinata! We had Madagascar 2 playing on the TV, and I was lucky enough to be able to give each guest a $3 off movie pass so that they could go watch the movie when it came out in theaters.
We all had a great time at the party and got to enjoy some great food and some great company. And of course, both of the boys got spoiled. =)
Here are just a couple of pictures:

Old Navy Swimsuits

I was so excited when I got an email saying I was approved for a 'Sample Share' through The sample being a brand new swim suit from Old Navy! I took my sister Jesse along with me, and we had a blast trying on at least 8 or 9 swimsuits. They had  so many different cute styles and patterns, and they even had some great stuff on clearance. I ended up opting for a dark grey one piece and a funky patterned bikini. Jesse went with a pretty blue one piece. And as much as I have been swimming and going to the lake this summer... I may go back and get another one! =)
Here are some picture of us in our suits:

Thank you Old Navy!

I'm going to start doing better at blogging... starting NOW! And what better way to start back up than to say how great it was to spend a day shopping with my sister Jesse and us both getting to pick out a dress from Old Navy! I got selected to do what is called a 'Sample Share' from the website and this awesome sample share was getting me and a friend a free dress from Old Navy! Woo hoo!
So... we both tried on about 5 or 6 dresses and they were all so comfy. I ended up getting two- a cute blue one with floral print that I can wear with a cute green cardigan, and then a super super comfy 'raspberry one' that I am now on the hunt for an awesome complimenting belt. =) Here they are!

Jesse tried on some awesome maxi dresses and a couple of cute floral print dresses, and of course- they all looked great on her. What is more comfy than a long, light maxi dress? If you ask me... she looks like a Hottie! 

We had a blast! Definitely something we should do more often!

There have been a few things this week that I have told myself 'I want to remember this'. So I figured doing a little blog post would be a great way to look back and remember.
- Ryker had a doctor appointment. Here are his stats (for being almost 4 months): Weight 16 pounds 4 ounces. Height 25 1/2 inches. Head circumference 17.
- I was able to go early morning running twice this week because Ryker has been consistently sleeping GREAT. Can you believe that my almost 4 month old has been sleeping from 7:30pm to 6:30 or 7:30am. It has been AH-maze-ing. Both Madden and Kolten would wake up at least once or twice in the night up until about 6 or 7 months- so this has been a pleasant surprise. I feel very blessed to have such a great baby!
- My little Kolten has been saying the cutest things lately. About a month ago I told the boys that we were going up to Papa T's house and that it isn't very hot up there so they will get to play outside. So this week when we were getting into our extremely hot car to take Madden to pre-school, Kolt told me "Mom- it's SO hot in here, we need go to Papa's house mom". Then later he told me "mom it's so hot, we need go to Papa's house. I wanna pay wis Uncle Trey. But Uncle Trey can't mow lawn." (Kolt is extremely afraid of loud noises such as a lawn mower and blender =). Then finally a couple days later he told me 'mom I wanna go Papa's house and do sneaky snake on da dert road". Man I love that kid.
- I love that every time we go to a grocery store or to Costco where they sell flowers, Madden will go up to almost every flower to smell them. Then he will tell me "Mom those flowers are so pretty and they smell good. I want to buy flowers for you!". Such a sweetie.
