Build A Bear Workshop

Ok, I never thought I would be posting pictures of my mom and dad making bears at Build A Bear workshop, but the day has come! This morning we met Shelley for breakfast and went to see her apartment. Then since she had to go to work so mom, dad and I went to a outdoor shopping center and looked around for a little bit. When we come to the Build A Bear and started looking both mom and dad decided to make one for themselves. It was funny to watch the whole process! :)
Hear they are picking out outfits for their bears

Dad stuffing his bear

Notice the 2 other guys in the back of dad also stuffing bears. It was funny to watch them all together!

All dressed. Dad made a Broncoes bear and mom's is a cute little girl
Naming them Missy and Skippy
What a fun visit!
And this is just an added bonus~ a video of dad making a wish with his heart for the bear. I think he was a real trooper, and had fun (even if he won't admit it).

Swimming at Grandma's house

Shannon, Josh and the kids went over to Grandma's house to let the kids play in the pool and have some dinner and since I had to drop Bella off anyway I decided to join them. It was fun to see how much the kids enjoyed the water and spend some time with everyone.
Lydia did great using all the skills she learned in swim lessons
Joshua getting a bath before they go home just in case he fell asleep in the car

Boone County Fair

I took Lydia to the fair with me since Shannon and Josh had a really busy week and couldn't take the kids and I knew Lydia would love it. We met Amanda (my co-worker) and her husband and daughter, Lauren, there. Lydia and Lauren get along great even though they are 2 1/2 years apart. They enjoyed it all...rides, food, animals and even fireworks as we were leaving. Then I took Lydia back to my apartment and she got to spend the night with me. She is so much fun! :)
Going on the roller coaster together
They got so dizzy on the tea cups.

Just as we were leaving fireworks started going off. Even though Lydia was tired, she still had to stop and watch

Baby Announcements

For those you that don't know, the girl that I work with is having a baby girl the second week in September. She is a big scrapbooker and loves the homemade cards I have been making so I told her I would be happy to make her birth announcements. I think they turned out really cute!! I used the cricut for most of it and it was very easy to make in large numbers. The nursery is in pink and purple giraffes so this fit perfectly.
