past couple of weekends...

Here is what happened the past couple of weekends....

Starting with Lyla, of course :)......

I found Lyla like this one night...
Chillin on the lounge chairs...
We bought Lyla a jumper from a neighbor...

Our good friends Steele and Amanda came to see us on their way driving to DC. They stayed the night with us and so we decided to treat them to real Chicago pizza!

Look at that cheese!!

Good buds...

Tired Amanda...

The next night, we had a big dance festival for our stake's Youth Conference. Our ward did swing and they were the BEST! Here is our little fam at the shin-dig.

Us...

This last Thursday was Nate's 25th birthday. To celebrate his birthday AND Father's day, we went to Medieval Times and we had a BLAST! The whole place was really cool and everyone was in the Medieval spirit. The food was DELICIOUS and they make you eat it without utensils. We were assigned to root for the Yellow Knight and boy did we (well I) have some serious knight pride. I was screaming for him with every piece of energy I had and it was all worth it because he ended up winning the tournament! Side note: This was also our first date without Lyla since she was born!! The weather was awful (tornado and flash flood warnings with pouring rain!) but we were determined to have our date!




The next day, I went to a baby shower for my friend Jill (yes, I wore the same shirt as the night before :))...

Then came home and went to the pool with the family and some neighbors...

That is our building behind Nate. I love this picture of these two. Lyla looks like such a snob :)

Exhausted after being in the pool for 20 minutes.

Later that night we went to a Mandarin restaurant that puts on a show. This guy was making noodles. I didn't take a picture of the whole process but I wish I would have. It was awesome.

Last, today is Father's Day. Here are my two favorite people!

I just have to say that I have the best husband EVER! He makes my life better. He puts up with all of my weaknesses (which are many) and he is always so patient with me with how slowly I try to fix them. He makes me laugh, he works hard, is a GREAT father, and he is just a good man. Today wasn't much of a father's day for him. I was making dinner and he was helping when I accidently added an ingredient at the wrong time, a small mistake that turned into something else... I selfishly got upset over some stuff and had a little breakdown (you know when those emotions all build up and then explode after a small mishap?). To make a long story short, he finished dinner for me while watching Lyla and when I was ready he gave me nothing but words of encouragement, understanding, and love. I felt so bad for making his Father's Day about me but he was nothing but understanding. I seriously have the BEST husband ever! Anyway, besides my little breakdown, we just had a great time the past couple of weekends. I love my man!

Next up, this Saturday we leave for Yellowstone with the Wright family... SO excited!

Lyla is getting so big! I love the pic of her hanging out poolside in her bathing suit! I'm going to take your advice on the feet pressure points. So if Devin does a good enough job I should go into labor soon, right? Wish me luck!
