The Girls watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Libby shouts for it each morning. When in reality she sees Mickey, cheers and then she goes on with her business.

It was a rainy day yesterday so we tried {were forced} to break out of our usual schedule.

My little big girl loving to learn!

Libby surprises me every once in a while with her puzzle skills.  She likes to say, "I didt, wook!" {I did it, look!}
This next little gem is the definition of a toddler.  I'm pretty sure if you google toddler behavior this may be the first thing that shows up.

Shouting NO! for no apparent reason and then thinking she is the funniest thing ever!

Thankful for Nana and Gpa!  Here's a quick glimpse of their fun with the girls over the weekend!

Showing off her biking skills

She improved and can now go forward!! She's pretty proud

Arts and Crafts! Her stamps are always a hit!
 They love their Nana!
 Strike a pose before Church
 She gets a bit emotionally when fun times come to an end.  Sally went downstairs to make each grandparent a special heart, so they wouldn't feel sad.

Thank you so so much Nana & Gpa! Come back to play again soon!


We got to meet Wesley William Gearman yesterday! He is a perfectly precious little boy! So very alert and content!

The very proud Daddy!
It's hard to tell here, but he's got the longest eyelashes!

We're so glad they live so close so we can get our baby fix often and offer up help whenever needed! Congratulations Kyle & Laura we're so very excited for you.  The two of you are wonderful parents and your little man sure is a lucky little guy!! xxo!

Burtzel Wedding!

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating the Burtzel Wedding.  We truly enjoyed ourselves and it was all thanks to Nana & Gpa for taking such fabulous care of our little ladies.  We didn't have to stop and think twice about how the girls were doing because we knew they were having great fun and making lasting memories.  Thank you Nana and Grandpa, you're much appreciated!! {especially for stopping by today and allowing me to do a solo Target run!!}

Today are the pictures from the weekend that Reid and I have.  Tomorrow will be Nana and Gpa's pictures!

Happy Monday!

Rehearsal Dinner at the Roasted Pear, with a couple of the Groomsman!

Libby wearing Nana's Glasses at breakfast!

Dropping the groomsman off at the church

This picture pretty much sums up what this group is know how you do a one on one picture with each of your groomsman?  Well, this was one of those...

Enjoying our time without kiddies to chase!

Record setting Bridal Party.  10 on each side!

The calm before the storm
Party bus fun!
Reid and the Groom! C-B 3!!

Me and my babens!
Reid and Benson!
Kiss Kiss

Nana and Grandpa took us to Brunch Sunday morning after Church
Nana lets the girls send some text.  I believe this one was to Poosch from Sally!

Gpa needed a little touch up!

Sunday afternoon, after some much needed naps by all of the members of the Craigmile Crew.  We went up to the park to fly a kite.  It was fun, but will be more fun when there's more wind ;)

**Wesley William Gearman entered the world today!! We're so so excited for Kyle and Laura and can't wait to meet the little guy later tonight! Congratulations Kyle and Laura!!!

The other day Libby was getting on one of the bikes by Delores' house and would not stop whining.  I decided to go check it out and see if her foot was stuck, or what the dealio was. 

This little guy was flipping and flopping around and she was freaked out:

I should have put a blade of grass by it so you could see how large it is.  It's about twice the size of a typical caterpillar! We were all very intrigued.  We then spotted another one high tailing it across the sidewalk.  We decided to collect and watch them to learn more about them!
They currently reside at Delores' house!  This is what summer memories are all about, right?! I'll keep you posted on Ole and Leena!
Sally's 5 point harness is officially too small for her.  The straps are lower than her shoulders.  She's graduated to the seat belt!  Another reminder of our ever growing children :(

Little Miss Happy pants popped a molar and I think that was the cause of her crabby pants a while back.  Happy to have my little lady back, as well as longer naps!

A while back I loved how Libby would respond to her name or questions with "What?" Did I post a video of that?  Well anywhooooo my new favorite thing is her "Uh hum" Take a listen!

Happy Friday! Happy Weekend! Happy Nana & Gpa coming! Happy Burtzel's Wedding! Happy Everything!

Walker 2013

We had a fabulous family weekend up north in Walker, MN.  We stayed at The Shores of Leech Lake.  The website doesn't do it justice.

It was so great in fact, that we already booked it again for next year!  On our ride home I asked Reid if he would change anything...we couldn't think of one thing!

Thank you Mom and George for renting the cabins!!! Thank you Nash's for the meat!! Thank you Joey and Emily for the extra fun!!

I'm hoping to make a quick little slide show, but I'm too tired and have too much laundry to catch up on, so maybe later on in the week.  Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend...

All packed up and ready to go!

The Craigmile Crew has arrived!!

It didn't take long for us to jump in the water!

Thank you John and Theresa for the boat ride and letting us jump in the middle of the lake!!

Warming up with Grandma!
A quick bike ride in to town for a drink while the girls were napping!  The Bike Brigade
