Final touches

Let's be honest, our mom is a little nuts-o. Once our swing set was complete, she felt it needed a few homey touches. 

A chalk board!



Faux flowers to match the curtain fabric.

Our mom might be a little crazy, but we love her :)

Some touches not featured: A chalk holder, an open/closed sign that matches the fabric, wall to wall carpeting on the lower floor, and she is currently looking for a welcome mat.

Splash park

One beautiful afternoon Yahya offered to bring the girls to the splash pad for some fun. Momma would have much rather been here than at home doing homework!! It looks like they had a great time :)

Yahya I think its safe for you to sit here, you won't get wet at all!

 Watch out for that wall of water sis!

 Loving the sprinkler ball!

 Cleaning our knees.

Getting splashed in the bum.

 And why not clean our hands while we are at it!

Hmmm... Do I brave the umbrella waterfall?!?

Seeing all of these photo's makes me wish for warm weather!!!

Free Festival

This summer we discovered an annual local festival that had free games, face painting, and bounce houses. What could be better than that? A free festival with Anna and Cate!

Playing Plinko with Anna.

 Taking a look at the game before she commits.

Cate can show her how it's done!

Emma, do you want a swirl, a flower, a butterfly, or a dragon?

A dragon!

Make that two dragons!

Posing with their cousin Cate, she LOVES butterflies!

Cousin love :)

Pirate Fest

When Yahya and Mommy heard the Pirate Festival was coming to town, we knew it was an event we wouldn't miss! We had a great day of axe throwing, pickle eating, a parade, dancing, face painting, and the people watching was fantastic! 

The little pirate people

Dada tried his hand at axe throwing

Two little ballerinas sitting on a mushroom

 A magic dragon who passed out beads

Our pirate booty

Dada with his mystery meat leg

Captain Jack Sparrow with Amelia

and Emma too.

Emma, do you want a butterfly or a dragon or any of these other predetermined designs?


I want Mike Wazowski.

And chances are, if you have one Mike Wazowski...

You are going to have a Sulley to go with her.

And now for some of our people watching highlights:

This woman had a tail.

The woman on the right was wearing a snake bra.

Here is a mermaid. She would sing if you tipped her. 
The little girl in this picture gave her $5 and she sang for less than a minute.
Nobody is that good.
