Yes we're alive and kickin' (Thats for all you cheerleaders out there)

So don't worry we did not fall off the face of the earth I have just felt so crazy busy the last couple of weeks. I finally have some time to recap and let you all know of what has occuppied our time! First off Isa. She is such a handful she rolls all over the place!
The North Dakota State Fair is held here in Minot so we made a day of it and enjoyed all of the festivities. They had a military appreciation day which gave us free lunch and some discounts on things so that was a lot of fun! They had a lady painting flags on kids at the lunch so naturally Zoe was all for that. We are as they say "Proud to Be an American"
Zoe got to go on a lot of rides and enjoy the heat. She had so much fun she was so upset when we told her that we were done for the day.
They also had a huge sand box for all the kids to play in with tons of toys, and a bubble machine that blew out hundreds of bubbles non stop all day.
Later that day Maddy came over and when she saw that Zoe was in the tub she couldn't wait to join her. They had so much fun I thought they were going to turn the whole bathroom into a tub!
Isa has turned into the funniest sleeper. We find her in all sorts of positions but here are a couple. My favorite part is that she put her paci in her mouth and that must have done the job because she is out cold!
Okay so we were a little late in the game at that whole kiddie pool thing but alas we finally got one! Zoe has a blast in it. We got her a cheap fishing pole at the dollar store and well all we ever hear is "I wanna wear my baby soup!" Don't worry that wasn't misspelled that is how she says it!
As some of you know I am now the big 26! I can't believe it myself but it is true. My birthday started out as just another day until I realized I had been slacking on my laundry and that it needed to get done so this is what I folded on my big day!
Mike threw me a birthday Luau and it was a ton of fun!! We had skewers of chicken and pineapple that were marinated and vegetable skewers that were marinated as well. All catered by none other than Mike himself. The food turned out really good and I think everyone had a lot of fun. Thanks to all those who were able to come. Mike and I have really been working out a lot check out the Abs on that guy!
Despite our requests our friends all came with presents which what can I say other than I was soooooo excited! This is a shout out to all those who came!
Mike got me an I-POD probably so I will stop stealing his. My mom also got me a double jogging stroller which I have been wanting for quite a while now. Its been so much fun because I have been able to take the girls roller blading everyday since I got it! Okay also as you can see in my picture that might be mistaken for Gisele I am modeling a beautiful hawaiian hat. Mike insisted that I wear this hat the whole night despite the fact that it didn't fit on my big head. So sad I know.
We have bee going to the Zoo a lot lately with our friends so here are some pics of that. Zoe and Maddy have so much fun together they just run, giggle, laugh and play the whole time!
Isa just enjoys being outside and as you can see she came for the stroller straps.
Last but not least check out these models. There favorite thing to do together now is to play dress up and do they ever dress up! I'll let the pictures do the talking!
Well so there you have it our crazy life for the past two weeks. Oh and also we are ready to paint the basement bedroom now and we have been out trying to pick out carpet. No pictures yet but I will post some when it is completely finished!
