Happy Birthday Daddy!

We love that you show us what to do (and what not to do!)

We love that you teach us so many new things
(like catching snakes and frogs... mom is thrilled)

We love that you still give horse rides on your back
(even if our diaper breaks and you get peed on)

We love that you can always make us laugh, we love you Dada!! 

Happy Birthday :) :)

So like we said, Auntie Karen and Ryan watched us while Mom and Dad were out of town. They entertained us by taking us to a children's museum, a carousel, and they even attempted to clean us... see the text message between AK and Momma below:

Congratulations Conrad and Aunt Kim!

Momma and Dada left us for the first time ever for Aunt Kim's wedding in upstate New York. Auntie Karen and Ryan were nice enough to fill in for Mom and Dad while they were partying the night away. Aunt Kim had a beautiful ceremony and reception and Mom and Dad had a great time, thank you for letting us celebrate your day. Congratulations to our Aunt Kim and Uncle Conrad! 

 They are famous!

 GG walked Aunt Kim down the aisle.

 And kissed her once more

 They exchanged vows and rings

 The new Mr. and Mrs.!!

Good Picture

As he always says, to take a good picture you have to have a good subject.

Dad Grad

We are so proud of our dad, he graduated with a degree in finance! He worked extremely hard and didn't lose site of his goals. On top of a full time job and raising a family, he graduated summa cum laude and we couldn't be prouder. Thank you to everyone who has supported him and for those who shared the day with us.

The ceremony, Derek is sitting in the very first row on the left... can you see him?

Balloon drop!

YAY Dad, you got us TWO BALLOONS and you graduated!!!!

Daddy and his girls

Daddy and Mommy

GG always told Daddy that she would be there the day he graduated and she was! 
Thank you so much for making the trip up, it meant the world to him :)

 Secret handshake between partners.

There weren't many photos from the day, but this is Momma's favorite pic! We brought so many toys into the arena to keep the girls occupied during the ceremony. Angela was a trooper, here she is carrying a cowboy hat with blocks in it on the streets of Hartford. That pretty much sums up our life right now. 

Thank you again to everyone who has supported Derek along the way, and for those who shared the afternoon with us. It was a great day!

Playing outside like big girls do.

This year we are so big, we don't need any help from Mom when we play.

 Swinging like a big girl and asking to go "high"

Amelia deep in thought.

Playful Emma. 

 Serious Emma.

Climbing the rock wall... while Mom hovers behind.

We are professionals.

Crawling through to the slide...while Mom hovers below.

Going down the slide on our own... while Mom hovers at the bottom.

Swinging on the trapeze bar... while Mom cringes on the sidelines.

Climbing up the slide... while Mom hovers at the bottom.
