The Tree House

Our county built a really cool treehouse as part of the Sawnee Mountain Preserve They put in on a hiking trail not far from the visitors center. We discovered it yesterday and Lauren had a great time playing hide n seek with daddy. In the third picture, she is "hiding" and cannot be seen by daddy. I guess if she closes her eyes she is invisible.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

We went to the Braves/Brewers game yesterday at 1:00. The Braves won but it was so hot. I guess that's why we are called "Hotlanta". Lauren had a great time, she had all of the great baseball foods. Cotton candy, peanuts, a snow cone. This girl LOVES baseball and daddy couldn't be happier about it. :)

Fascinated With Poop

Well, there you have it. My daughter is fascinated by poop. she wants to know what color it is each time she poops. I know this is not a pleasant post but it is funny :) This is our conversation tonight.

Lauren: What color is the poop
Mama: it's green
Lauren: It looks like peanut butter
Mama: Lauren, it does not look like peanut butter, it's poop. I need to clean it off of your potty seat, it's yucky.
Lauren: It not yucky mama, everybody poops.

Ugh, she says everybody poops because that's what I had to tell her to keep her from getting upset when we had to clean up and now that's what she tells me.

And there are no pictures because I am not that weird :) I just think it's funny that she is fascinated with bodily functions, she wants to know every single time what color it is. I do good to keep from up heaving when I clean it and she wants to know the details of it. Maybe she'll be a nurse or even a doctor one day and then I'll appreciate her interests. HA

Noah Came To Play

Noah came for a playdate today, it was the first time he has come to Lauren's house and they were so excited. :) They played in the Dora kitchen, played race cars, had smore's for dessert after lunch and lauren tried to get Noah to play dress up but Noah wouldn't take the bait. :) That's the downfall to a boy best friend I guess, you can't talk them into playing dress up with you. They had a great time but we discovered Lauren really needs a sibling, sharing is not her strongest attribute you can tell by the crossed arms picture, something didn't go her way.

Fun With Dad

It was a rainy day here on Father's day so we had a low key day but today the weather was beautiful and we had to head to the neighborhood pool. Lauren loves this pool, it's nothing fancy. No slides or diving boards but it has stairs and a handrail. Wahoo.The other pictures are of her new favorite daddy trick, she climbs on his back and he hangs her upside down. we get great belly laughs from this.

Look What I Found Today

I was getting some stuff together for a children's church mission lesson on China tomorrow and I found this. Oh, what a great time that was :) I wish we were all on the journey together again. Do you all remember the pushy people trying to sell us stuff while we were there, I don't think I'll ever forget that.

My Mission Today

She's proud of her new room

The new playroom

My mission today was to turn Lauren's room into a big girl room by moving the queen bed from the guest room into her room and turning the guest room into a playroom for her. we bought new livingroom furniture over the Memorial day weekend and it's being delivered tomorrow. I think her new room is cute, you can't really see the sheets but they are circles like the wall stickers, lauren put the wall stickers on herself so I didn't mess with them too much, I did go back in and spread them out a bit more while she is napping but since she put them how she wanted them I tried to leave them alone. Her playroom is still a work in progress but at least I can just close the doors if it gets too bad and she has a place to go and play by herself so I don't have toys all over the house. This will have to do until we can afford a bigger house :) The best part of it all is that it didn't cost me much to redo Lauren's room, we had the bed already and I found the comforter online at and the wall stickers on ebay so I redid her room for less than $70.00, not bad huh ?

It's going by fast

We went back to a favorite park this evening and I was shocked when I looked at pictures of Lauren from the last time we were there. It's going by so fast, I wish I could keep her little :) The older pictures are of March 07, the new one is from tonight.

A Visit to Florida

We got home today from a trip to Florida to see Cousin Heather graduate. we also took Lauren rollerskating at the local rink while we were there, she was not impressed with it at all. :) She had a great time visiting grandparents and cousins and we are extremely proud of Heather as she gets ready to head to UF.
