Memorial Day Weekend

It's Monday, but it feels like a Sunday! I'm a day late with my weekly blog, but I figured I'd wait until today since I'd have more pictures to share. We've had a really nice weekend. The weather has been hot, but spectacular. Reese & Paige went swimming in the pool for the first time this year, and they LOVED it! Paige was iffy at first, but as soon as she realized how fun it was, she perked right up. She didn't want to sit still at all; she wanted to jump and kick and fear at all! Reese was happy to play in her swim ring. It was a really great weekend to break the pool in :)

Friday was OCA's Field Day...lots of activities going on for the different classes. Paige's class is full of little 2-year-olds (some even younger), so they did a few things before all the kids got hot and cranky.

Here is Reese and Christy...Reese's favorite person ever! She was happy, but when she realized I was hanging around the school for the day, she was like, "Really, mom? You're here?"

Reese loved her swimsuit...haha.

Paige with her hair all up...I couldn't resist a picture of her cute little neck!

Reesie enjoying a magazine...

And then lounging around, reading through her little cupcake notebook.

Pip loves to examine the little characters on her cup.

Let the pool pics begin...

Another Sunday is here...

Hey, blog readers! I don't have a lot to write about today. We've had a pretty good week, and I can't believe it has already come and gone. This week should be a fun one...the girls have their field day at school on Friday. And then next Monday is Memorial Day, which means no school and no spinning classes at the Y. I'm kind of bummed about that because I teach twice on Mondays, and now I'll have the whole day free. Looks like I'll have to do something else in its place.

Next weekend will be busy...we're having a get together for a few of my YMCA friends for their birthdays...Trudi, Marie & Sara. And then on Sunday, someone who shall remain nameless (but she gave birth to me) has a birthday. I won't say which birthday it is, but it's a nice round number. Let's just say if you add 30 and 30, you get the number. But Shhhh...don't tell anyone.

Last night I had a fun night out with my great friend, Jennifer. We went to see Bridesmaids and had dinner at Chili's afterwards. The movie is hilarious...I'm a big fan of Kristen Wiig on SNL, and she makes the movie so funny! It was nice to get to hang out with an awesome person outside of the spin room :)

Here are my pictures for the week...

Trampolines...they're not just for jumping anymore.

Reese was hanging out in the front window, hiding behind the curtain, just having a little conversation with herself...I love this picture!

Just looking cute (as always)!

Hanging around outside...

Thanks for checking in with us, and have a great week!

Flying High & 4-Wheelin'

It's Sunday again, and time for another batch of pictures of the Whidden girls. This weekend has been kind of rainy, and we even had a thunderstorm early this morning. This afternoon has been beautiful, though! We took the girls for a 4-wheeler ride, which they loved. Everyone has had a great week!

With that said, here are the pictures....

Flying through the air...

She loves her Daddy :)

The cutest 40 pound bird ever!

Just a few cute ones...

My little Mud Slingers :)

Happy Mother's Day

I hope all you moms out there are having a wonderful Mother's Day! It's gorgeous outside, so I'm about to go spend some quality "me" time sitting beside the pool, reading a good book.

I have some cute (but silly) pictures of Reese & Paige this week. You just never know what my girls are going to get themselves into... Welcome to the world that is my life :)

Hey, everyone! I'm taking a bath.

I love to bite on my little yellow baby.

I also love to play with my little blue boat.

Looking at things right-side-up is so overrated.

Spinning around in mom's desk chair is really fun!

Being upside down on my trampoline is very cool.

If my mommy really begs me, I'll sort of pose for her.

And once in a blue moon, I'll break out my ultra-cheesy grin from years ago.

Who would've thought I could fit into this box?

Chewing on my toys is one of my favorite things to do.

I've discovered a new use for plates...step on them and drag them around the house like a snow shoe. Very cool.

Mom's desk chair is fun to sit in :)
