Lagoon Day

We spent a fun 8 hours at Lagoon on Friday all at the expense of loosing Kelsie's blankie. It is like loosing a binky but never being able to replace it. We still had a wonderful time and Kelsie only woke up once wanting it last night but quickly fell back to sleep. I don't have any pictures of the water part, but the girls didn't love that too much anyways. It was hard to tell what Kelsie thought about everything. For the most part she didn't cry, but she also wasn't really laughing or even smiling. So who knows, but it was a fun day and I hope we go back next year, but I will skip on the Ferris Wheel next time.
I love those cute little heads!
Kelsie wasn't loving the airplane ride.

This was the second ride Claire did. I was nervous she wouldn't want to do anything after this. It swings up pretty high. She was right at the 36 inch mark to ride it.
She really booked it off the ride, but it didn't stop her from going on more. What a fun girl we have.

Our Weekend

On Friday night we cooked our first pizza in the dutch oven. We even used homemade dough. It was really good. It is our favorite so far. Then on Saturday we went and watched Ed umpire the 16-18 year old State Championship games for babe ruth. Ed did an amazing job and a mom even came over from the other team to brag about Ed to another mom like she knew him. It was funny to hear her talking about my husband like that. He called a great game.

Here is Kelsie crying because she doesn't want to go to bed. Actually it is more like whining. She is acting a little silly because she knows I am recording her. Kids are funny!

Dutch Oven Cooking

Ed said he wanted to get into dutch oven cooking. And of course I was all over it because it meant we would be spending time together and even better cooking together. We are definitely amateurs but we are getting better. We bought it last week and we have cooked peach cobbler and enchilada casserole. Last night we attempted 2 things: macaroni and cheese and brownies. There are a few things we will change to the mac and cheese recipe but it was still really good and Ed loved the brownies. It was a fun family home evening and it is really fun to hear Ed tell me what we should try making for dinner. Can't wait to do more!
