What we have been up to...

Here is a quick update of what we have been doing in 2011:

Ellie and I took a trip to Zoo Boise with the Hanson family.
Ellie hangs out with these kids so much I think she thinks she is their sister.
She does look a lot like Sarah.... but she is my baby I promise.

Loving the zoo!

The giraffe or "gi-gi" is Ellie's favorite animal... after kitties.

We have also enjoyed the spring weather around Eagle.
Ellie and the cousins and I went on a picnic by the lake.
We love feeding the ducks and enjoying beautiful Boise.

Emmy and Andrew took turn pulling the wagon to the lake
while Sarah and Savvy rode their bikes.
Once we got there we had a great picnic.

And of course one of the MOST important events of the spring....
Ellie turned one!!

As you can see she loved her personal ladybug cake.

We had a great time celebrating with family and friends and Elisabeth had a great time opening lots of presents.

A VERY spoiled little girl!

We have been spending a lot of time getting our yard in order
and here Ellie is enjoying the flowers outdoors while
Daddy builds Mommy some new flower beds.

Our Memorial Day weekend was spent in Twin Falls and Pocatello.

Ellie modeled her new cherry dress
that Aunt Robin made for her.
How lucky to have such a talented Auntie!!

Then of course we spent some time with new baby Zander.
Brit and Kyle have a darling new baby boy and we loved
spending some time snuggling this cutie.

After Zander time it was off to the hotel pool so
Ellie could swim with "Bamp Pa"

As for what Elisabeth is up to now.... Well lets just say that she is hard to keep up with.
She loves to play the emptying game and yesterday I found her emptying out my wallet.
I guess you are never too young to want mom's money.

Well those are some of the fun adventures we have been on lately. On a more serious side I wanted to share that our sweet Elisabeth gave us a scare a few weeks ago when she experienced some febrile seizures. She has been doing great lately and we are so GRATEFUL for her health and happiness. Nothing is as scary as taking your little baby to the hospital. We are still doing some tests and hope that all will continue to be well with our precious girl. We love her so much and appreciate all the prayers that have gone out on her behalf!
