Ella's Birthday Party

We had a small party for Ella on a Friday afternoon while Nana and BaPa were here. The boys enjoyed the sandbox.

and the punch balls were a hit with the little ones.

Ella turns 2!

On Ella's actual birthday, we had a special day out. We ate lunch at McDonalds and Ella's happy meal toy was holding up two fingers.
Then we went to Kidz Club, and indoor playground.
Call me!

We finished up the day at Boston Market for dinner. Ella loves their mashed potatoes and their sweet potatoes and yes, she had both! It was her birthday!!
And a little chocolate cake!

Keeping Cool in the Pool

It's way too hot here, so we decided to buy a pool. We lovingly refer to it as the "vinyl pond".
It's definately not pretty but it keeps us cool and the girls are having a blast! Claire has learned how to swim underwater and is very proud of herself.
Ella keeping cool... Do these goggles make my cheeks look fat?

Yes, we will definately be using this one for leverage in the future!
