Saturday Janet, Becky and I threw a bridal shower for Lacy. For those of you that don’t know, she’s marrying one of our best best friends, Kevin.
Below is a photo of Tyler and Kevin in Dec. of 1982 … Tyler (with the red rattle in his mouth) is about 5 months old and Kev is 9 months old.
Simply because it’s my favorite photo, I’ll share another picture from about 20 years ago!

What memories … and what memories we’ve made over the last 20 years. Can’t wait to see what the next twenty bring!
Bella looked beautiful at the shower, although she was NOT a fan of her adorable dress from Grams. She cried when I tried it on her that morning and kept trying to pull it off at the shower. She’s learning young that beauty doesn’t come easy. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice.
Luckily it’s easy to distract Bella with food!
And she enjoyed sitting in the middle of all the ladies at the shower and play with the ribbons, bows, tissue paper and bags.
After the shower we took off her dress, she took a serious cat nap (until she smelled french fries for hungry Mommy) and then played with Daddy and Grandma & Grandpa while Mommy took her own little cat nap!
Sunday morning Tyler & I treated our little family to breakfast at Baileys! This is a splurge for us, but we really enjoyed it and Tyler has been working very hard lately and deserved it.
After yummy breakfast we strolled through Lowes and got a few paint samples for Bella’s Big Girl Room. I purchased some (king sized) bedding last week and are on our way to getting her room going! Unfortunately we don’t like the colors we picked are back to square one with paint, but will get there!!
After Lowes we took Bella to a great park near us and enjoyed the swings, slides and nature paths.
Tyler worked on fixing a new (to us) lawn mower and Bella helped tremendously!
Monday we met Kinsey, Tucker and Emily at the splash park for a fun morning! Bella and Tucker had a blast!!!
The water turns on and off at different stations and every time the water turned off she looked so puzzled. :) This girl makes me laugh!
This morning Bella and I had a fun “art lesson” in the backyard. We tried to work on our colors a bit as she painted and colored some beautiful new pieces of art.
In addition to the paper, she managed to paint me ….
And herself …
And innocent Toby …
And we swam for a bit to rinse off all the paint!
Tomorrow MATTHEW will make his fashionable entrance into the world & we’re getting up bright and early to meet him! Stay tuned for photos of Bella’s newest cousin!
