Catching up

This week the girls had their yearly checkups. Sailyr is just about to catch Skylar in weight and height. I guess Skylar better start eating her Wheaties! (Yeah, right!)
Skylar: 24.9 lbs (25%), 33 inches (25%), 47 cm head cir. (65%)
Sailyr: 21.9 lbs (90%), 30.5 inches (70%), 45 cm head cir. (50%)

I guess 12 months 12 days birth difference doesn't really matter when it comes to growing up. Pretty soon they will look like twins!

Birthday girls!

I can't believe I actually have a 2 year old and a 1 year old! Skylar's birthday is on May 31 and Sailyr's on June 12. Since we were on vacation on Skylar's birthday, we decided to have a joint party for them after we got home. Kylee made a "Nemo" cake that was so cute, not to mention really yummy! The girls got totally spoiled and have really enjoyed playing with all the new toys and things they got. Thanks everybody!

What we did on our Summer Vacation!

We went to Myrtle Beach, SC for a week at the first of June. We had so much fun! We went with our friends Jason and Holly and their kids. They have a beautiful beach house that we all stayed in. It was only 12 housed away from the beach! What an awesome part of the country. There is a lot of history there and we got to see just a little bit of it. So interesting! Hopefully one day we can go back and do some more! Thanks Williams' for inviting us along!

We had a great time taking the boat out for the first time this year. Skylar had been in the boat before but she was really tiny. We were interested to see how both of the kids did before we decided to go out for a whole day. Skylar loved it and thought it was cool to wear her "coat", otherwise known as a lifejacket! Sailyr, on the other hand, hated hers! I don't blame her. When kids are so little, it stays up around their neck and they can hardly move!
Skylar kept yelling over the side of the boat, "Nemo! Dori! Where are you?" It was so funny! She wanted to go fast and loved watching the birds duck under the water when we got close to them. We weren't out for very long, but it was fun to see how the girls would do. I think we will leave Sailyr home when we go boating this summer but next year she will be big enough to enjoy it. Hopefully our boat will bring fond memories to our family for years to come!

Mother's Day at the zoo!

All I wanted to do on Mother's Day was something fun with our kids. We hadn't ever been to the zoo so I decided that is where I wanted to take them. I didn't think it would be very busy, but boy was I wrong! It was packed. Once we found a parking spot (which wasn't an easy task) we were off to have fun!
Although we didn't get any pictures of the animals, we did see a lot! Skylar loved the monkeys and penguins. The gorilla came right up to us at the window and the cheetah stared us down and paced along the fence. It was really fun to see the girls' reaction to all the animals!
