In August, we enjoyed the Saline County Fair and then headed to the combine derby for entertainment on Saturday night. Caden's friend Isak just turned 5 and so we took him with us for his birthday present! It is always entertaining to watch those big machines smash into each other but I forgot how long it is in between rounds and trying to keep 3 kiddos 5 and under entertained proved to be lots of snacks and lots of walking breaks, but it was beautiful weather and for the most part enjoyed by all!
Head phones on and ready to go!
August 17th, marked the birthday of Hayden Sage Allen---Brynn and I went to visit her in the hospital--one adorable little girl and we also kind of like her family as well! Brynn was more interested in eating Mindy's pickles off her hamburger, but at least she gave me a few minutes to love on Hayden before she lost patience!
She even opened those beautiful eyes for us right at the end!
We have not had a ton of rain this year and so when we were home this day and it started pouring the kids begged to go out--Layne put them in our raincoats, found them some boats and they were set! I bet they were outside in this for over 30 minutes loving every second--Layne and I watched from the window! We are great parents!
September 2nd marked the birthday of our cousin Avery Joy Ohlde! So excited to have them in KS to help celebrate her birth! Caden took these pictures on the ipad--she is almost smiling in this one!
Brynn is pretty excited to have another girl in the family and so are we!
We had a balloon launch at church to celebrate the start of Sunday School this year--my kids were so excited--plus there were cookies and punch--can't get much better than that! It was a great way to get families involved and the kids wrote religious messages tied to the balloons--it was fun to hear their ideas!
Once again, this girl makes me laugh every day! This was her second haircut and Brynn ventured out a little more. She let Kim wash her hair in the BIG sink--with BIG eyes, and then while Kim was cutting her hair, talked a mile per minute from questions about her haircut, to the bottles on the counter, to Southeast of Saline football, to her brother, to popcorn, to "do you have suckers here!" Kim is so patient and kind--even put some smelly gel in her hair and let her sit under the hair dryer that Brynn got to chose! My stomach hurt from laughing so hard and I think next time I will bring all my Salina friends with me for the entertainment--or the video camera!
