Father's Day Weekend 2011

We had a fabulous Father's day weekend.  We celebrated with our father's on Saturday night.  We grilled out and had fun!  Here are are few photos:
Sunday morning (Father's Day) we woke up and Andrew and Jackson made strawberry pancakes together!  
After breakfast we had a great time at church.  When we came home we tried out Andrew's Father's day gift by making awesome panini's!  WE LOVE the Panini maker!  
We officially have a crawler.  Eva Kate zooms all around the house.  Of course she isn't satisfied with that and insists on pulling up and attempting to walk.  She is keeping all of us on our toes!  
Over the past few weeks Eva Kate has really been showing her personality.  She has a variety of funny faces...let me explain:

This is her "high five" face

This is her "you took something I was playing with Jackson" face!
"I love my brother" face
 Tired of taking pictures face:

Sweet, innocent face:

 And "I'm plotting something in my head" or "you are still following me with that camera" face
To wrap up the face portion of this blog I wanted to add the best photo yet...I captured both kiddos.  This is where Jackson was trying to take the toy out of Eva Kate's hand and she got made and yelled at him....PRICELESS faces...poor Jackson is dealing with Diva Eva!
Last night she tried to climb out of the bathtub and slipped and luckily Andrew caught her and all I saw was her little tush sticking up in the air!  She is a mess!

As much as Eva Kate is changing and growing up, so is Jackson.  Out of the blue he has started trying new foods that he would normally not touch...new favorite, apples.
Also Jackson has been doing remarkable in his swim lessons.  He is now jumping off the side of the pool and off the diving board.  He can also swim around under water and pick up toys!  He is growing up too fast!

I Heart Faces! Daddy Daughter:)

This weeks I Heart Faces! contest was in honor of Father's day.  The other night Eva Kate fell asleep in Andrew's arms and it was just precious! It is a rarity for her to fall asleep anywhere other than her car seat or her crib!  I just love those two!  They shared such a special moment and glad I was able to capture it!  Daddy's little girl!

I am aware that I have not blogged in a while.  In fact I have been blogging just in the edit mode and will post as soon as I finish. It is really long including all that has gone on in the past week or two.  I promise it is coming soon! 

With that said I wanted to post a quick, fun blog about this week.  Jackson started his swim lessons yesterday and it went better than I had expected.  I pretty much expected it to be like his first weeks of school but really only the first half of lessons went that way.  He still refuses to wear his goggles, but we are working on that!

I have been a member of Groupon for the longest time ever but just recently started purchasing them.  I have gotten some amazing deals such as our incredible canvases (which I LOVE), Shutterfly books, Old Navy deals, and haircuts.  Last week I purchased two groupons for haircuts for Jackson.  We cashed in on one of them today!  Jackson had been looking at the photos online and said he wanted to get his haircut while sitting in the Thomas the Train chair.  Well we get there and he chose the pink Barbie convertible.  I have to admit it was the coolest since it played music and when you pushed the pedals the wheels actually moved!  Still it cracked me up!  He got an awesome haircut and at an incredible price!  Thank you again Groupon!

 Eva Kate is more mobile than ever!  Watch out!  Gotta love her!  I can't believe that in two months our baby girl will be ONE! Time flies!

Melt my heart!
