Fun weekend!

 Joanna and Cody invited us to his Family's cabin over the weekend!

 We were really excited for a nice little get-away!
We made some new friends and Evelyn found herself a new little boyfriend, Max!
He is one month older than her so they had fun playing together. (When Evelyn wasn't crying!)
It started out GREAT! First up, Camp fire with S'mores and fun stories!
This was Evelyn's first camp fire! She loved it! She wouldn't stop staring at the flames! 
 That night was HORRIBLE!
Evelyn's worst night of her WHOLE LIFE! Seriously! 
She was up pretty much ALL. NIGHT. LONG! CRYING! UGH!
I felt so bad! I was afraid we were keeping the whole house up! YIKES! 
But the poor little baby was so, so sad! It made me sad! And a wee bit frustrated!
She was getting 3 teeth! 
And I think maybe she had a little bit of gas because she kept tooting! 
Anyway, we had a horrible night but the next day was a lot of fun!
 I was horrible at remembering to bring my camera with me and take pictures so we didn't get any pictures of any of our adventures but trust me, it was fun! 
Cody took some people out on the boat while the Mama's stayed with the sleeping babies and chatted and enjoyed the warm weather! I loved it! I could chat all day I think!
Then we went on a little hike/walk! That was fun! 
Joanna and Cody made us all a delicious dinner and then we put the babies down for bed!
Well, Max went to sleep at least! Evelyn, not so much!
She screamed all night long! So finally we just decided to call it a trip and pack up and go home early!
We stayed for the camp fire and then headed home at about 10:30. I was sad to leave early but Evelyn fell asleep almost the second we started driving and she slept pretty good that night! So it was good that we all got some MUCH needed sleep! 
One of her teeth broke through that night so I think it gave her a little bit of relief! PHEW!
So, Even though poor Evelyn made the trip a little less desirable, we still had a lot of fun hanging out, playing games, eating yummy food and laughing!
Little Buddies!
 Thanks for the fun Joanna and Cody!

Best friends!

My S-I-L, Jessica told me about this when she saw this picture of me and Evelyn and I loved the idea and wanted to be a part of it!
It really got me thinking, too!
Evelyn is my best little buddy and I spend almost all day thinking about how much I want to capture every second of her life and really enjoy this time with her! I am SO lucky to be able to stay home with her and have her as my little buddy! I just can't even put into words how grateful I feel for that!
I am always taking pictures of her and capturing "her" moments and never "our" moments!
I want to remember OUR time together too!
So, this was just a good reminder for me!
You can do it, too! 
Check it out!

Lace and pearls and ruffles, oh my!

Courtenay took these BEAUTIFUL pictures of our Evelyn on Saturday! 
I just LOVE them!
Evelyn loved to suck on the pearls *Drool*
Such a pretty little princess!
Thanks for the photo shoot, Sist!

Crazy for Pineapple!

We had Pineapple with our dinner the other night and I thought it would be fun to see what Evelyn thought of it! She LOVED it!!! She went crazy for it and freaked out when I took it away! It was cold so I think that felt good on her gums and I think that the sweet juice was a plus too! Please IGNORE our nerdy conversation about how funny our child is and Jarom's massive, disgusting burp (sorry 'bout that! Its just too cute to not post! Evelyn, not the BURP!) and just watch the little munchkin chow down!
