Fun Fourth 2014


This year we decided on the parade and fireworks at home.  The girls were so excited about the parade!  We made handprint flags the day before Smile

Super excited for fireworks!  We started a little before dark because it gets dark so late!DSC_0055DSC_0058DSC_0063DSC_0067DSC_0069DSC_0070

Fireworks were a hit!  The girls loved picking which one we were doing next.  Everybody enjoyed the sparklers!  We had 65 and used them all!! SmileHappy Birthday America!!

Both Izzy and PIper had their graduations today!  Hard to believe another school year is coming to a close!  Piper is heading into pre-K – staying at her gymnastics preschool.  And Izzy is going into FIRST GRADE!  How is she that old??

Fun to watch Izzy’s class perform!  Cassidy wanted to go to “sissy” so badly!


She had loved her teachers this year!


And made lots of friends!

We are SO happy with Izzy’s school!  She has learned SO much this year and has enjoyed it tremendously! 

Mother’s Day 2014

It all started out with the girls wanting to wear their new shirts… Tim saying it looks kinda 80”s…. and then the side pony idea…. since it was Mother’s Day we all rocked them!DSC_0009

My three loves!


My heart is so full!  Love these sweet girls!

All weekend I thought about Cassidy’s birth mom.  We love her so much and she is an amazing mom.  Without her we wouldn’t have Cassidy in our family.  I can’t imagine our life without either of them. 

Kings Dominion Trip


We made a spontaneous trip to visit King’s Dominion and meet my brother Dan there.  Since it is a long drive and going to be really long day we dropped Cassidy off at Josh & Bethany’s house to play with them and Luke for the day. 


Both girls LOVE rides!  We had so much fun riding everything they could!  Izzy was tall enough to ride some of the big rides…. she loved them all!  Especially Anaconda which goes upside down!20140427_13194720140427_135119

Both girls fought over who was going to ride with Dan all day Smile  He has more pictures of them on the rides and maybe one day I will get those pics!


It was a beautiful day!  The longest we waited for a ride was about 10 minutes!20140427_17322020140427_173301

Izzy and Dan attempted to win a game…. no success but they both got pretty far!20140427_194112

Tired out girls!  We ended up not getting home til 11pm!  Can’t wait to go again next year!!!
