We started with the parade and the kids were in the jogging stroller just waiting. We stood right by the road so if we stuck our arm out we could touch whoever was walking by. Well sweet Bubby fell asleep and slept through the WHOLE parade and Cailyn was too shy to get out of the stroller! Most of the people in the parade threw candy for the kids, well my crazy child would not get out of the stroller to get the candy! The nice kids around us going crazy because there was candy all over the place would occasionally come and bring her some to put in her bag.
we even got a tattoo! a blue flower
the worm tunnel

My Family came to visit for the second time over Labor Day weekend and I could not have been more excited! Its a bummer that they only got to stay two full days- but we will take whatever we can get!
The first time they came up was back in late July when we were still getting used to the area. We were glad that they were coming up, but we were very homesick at the time. It almost made it harder for us to see them just because we had to seem them go 2 days later. The first trip was a hard one for various reasons. The first because we were so homesick and the second because mom's treatment and diagnosis was very much up in the air. If mom wasn't going through what she is going through, this move would have been alot easier for me! Luckily, so far, everything has turned out ok. During this trip, mom and dad did get the kids a swing set and were able to see Brady's school!
The second time they came up was much much much better! They came up over Labor Day weekend, so like the first time they could only stay 2 full days. So the moment they got here it was almost like we were thinking about when they had to leave. We did alot of shopping, eating, and hanging out. Cailyn loves when family comes to visit and I am sure Peyton does too. Cailyn stayed up till like 11 every night and didn't get a nap the days they were here, she was constantly going and being crazy! Kelsey and Cailyn painted a bird house that they put in our front tree and we went to Scheels to show the family the "dead animals" as Cailyn calls them. We also had some cake and a little early birthday celebration for Peyton. I made a dinosaur cake which was really easy. My first try was a little rough, but Peyton didn't seem to mind because he dug right in! We did alot of playing outside because the weather was so nice. The family brought up a dollhouse that was Kelseys and all of the accessories, a tricycle, a desk that used to be mine, a tv and vcr with VHS tapes (1990's yes, but we are hibernating this winter so I need to keep the kids occupied), a potato head playset (which we have played with everynight since), and a few other things. It was also a good trip because my brother, Kyle got to come and see the place. The dollhouse that was brought up has people to it obviously and Cailyn says, "these are my people!"
For Peyton's birthday, the family got him a mini construction set which he loves! It is the 'CAT' brand and it has a dumptruck that he pushes everywhere!
The pictures in the slide are mostly from the Labor Day trip, but there are a few from the first trip when the swing set was going up. Brady and Dad built it and then had to take it down and build it back up again because they did it wrong- funny huh? Yea not so much!
looking at the ducks:
Trust me, this is a huge step for her to do this! She thought it was the coolest thing!

2. Our next big event of that week was Cailyn's first trip to the dentist! She suprisingly did really well and really liked the dentist! She sat in my lap and leaned back so the dentist could look at her teeth and she had 16! At that time she was still sleeping with her binky, but Dr. Rob told her that she didn't need that binky anymore. So the next day we did like a star chart-treat thing with her and she was done with it completely within 3 days. Now she'll say "Dr. Rob said no more binky for you!" Its hilarious! I think she is trying to regulate Peyton but he's not having any of it!
