Terrible 2's A Year Early......!

Okay, so I haven’t updated this lately but we have been super, super busy. Summer classes are piling on the homework We have been super busy…Last weekend I took Oakley to the Lansford parade-he loved it. We have a busy week coming up. Kelly, Matt, and Eli fly in Thursday night and Saturday we are going to the lake to a friend’s cabin for the day with a few friends from high school Saturday were going out to my best friend Katie’s parent’s house to celebrate the 4th. I’m excited for the long weekend, but it will be a busy weekend, followed by the week because we will be busy hanging out with Kelly, Matt, and Eli.
Oakley definitely hit his terrible 2’s a year early! He has been super naughty. He knows how to throw tantrums and likes to pick on Bryan when he is watching TV. Oakley is not much of a TV kid and he would much rather have Bryan playing on the floor with him rather than watching TV. Oakley tries to get his way, and with me... he always does
I will update and put pictures on here as soon as I get a chance.

vaction, vacation, vacation

We had Oakley's birthday party last Saturday. It was a blast. There were a lot of people there and he got lots of presents. Grandma Shelly took him swimming and he loved it. Oakley didn't want much to do with his birthday party. There were a few intermissions! First, when we started opening presents he wanted nothing to do with it and decided himself he wanted to go take a nap. The party was on hold for an hour until I decided to wake him up again and try opening some more presents...he wanted nothing to do with it. We decided to get the cake part moving so everyone didn't leave before we did the cake or else I would have been stuck with a lot of cake! He didn't want much to do with his own cake either. He wouldn't stick his hands into it so I gave him a fork and he started eating it some. Finally he got into the cake past the frosting and played for a little bit. It was a good party overall. After the party, that night, I got super sick. There were about 3 other people that got sick, then Monday Daniel got sick. It was a rough beginning of the week but towards the end of the week it got so much better! It was a normal week like any other week, daycare, work, school, bed, repeat. Oakley didn't see the kids at daycare too much this week as the provider and her son got sick too! He got to spend 2 days at home with Grandma Shelly--lucky boy. On Thursday my best friend text me and told me she was coming to visit for the 4th of July. We all made plans together-Katie, Dave, Kelly, Matt, Eli, Daniel, Bryan, Oakley, and I are going out to Katie's parents for the 4th to bbq and hang out...should be a blast. Thursday night Daniel and I also sat down and ordered our plane tickets to go see Kelly, Matt, and Eli in October for Kelly's birthday. I can't will be Oakley and my first plane ride! I'm super nervous about that... Daniel is taking my car down to Kentucky next Thursday to pick up his son Bryan for a month or so. It is going to be a mad house with a 1 and 2 year old running around-but they will enjoy each other! Until then I need to sit down, and get even further ahead on my online classes so that when Bryan gets here and Kelly, Matt, and Eli get here I can spend as much time as possible with them! I will get pictures posted from Oakley's birthday as soon as Auntie Deanna puts them on Facebook:)

Eli Lake*

Pretty much my second favorite baby, Elisha Lake....I really think Kelly, Matt, and Eli need to move closer so we can have playdates...everyday. (that's a hint Kelly) I miss her more and more everyday and the more pictures I see of Eli makes me miss him too. Some say once your graduate from high school and more on to college you forget your high school friends, but Kelly is one friend that has moved away that I will never lose contact with-ever! I can't wait to go down and see her in North Carolina in October. But until then all I can do is keep updated with pictures and texting. Here are some pictures of that beautiful baby boy and some pictures for old time sakes when we were in high school.

Sweet Baby Boy

Here are some pictures from our trip to the zoo and one from when we were in Wyoming:)
