At 21 months picking out her own clothes!

So Allison has decided that she does not like the sleeper pjs anymore.  Well now the last two nights she has cried and cried because she didnt want to wear the pjs I got out for her.  This morning when I told her let's go get dressed she went straight to the closet.  I asked her if she wanted to wear an outfit she said yes...well then she changed her mind! She screamed and would not let me put the clothes on her! So I said find let's pick out another outfit.  She reached for her purple dress and took her pjs off and was ready to put the dress on! Then she told me she wanted her necklace on! And a bow! Her and Lauren are such opposites! Lauren doesn't even want to look at clothes but Allison has to choose which one she likes best!! She is going to be the expensive child!!! :)

Family vacation to Nashville

This past weekend we had our first family RV trip to Nashville.  We went to Nashville Shores waterpark and it was great!! All the kids loved it! We stopped and ate in Nashville before going to the RV park and the place we went to was called Loveless cafe.  It has been there forever and famous people always come in there.  Well Chelsea Clinton was standing right next to us! My Mom recongized her.  I thought she looked familar but I was also wondering why anyone would want to wear the hat she was wearing! Anyway it was a good meal there and off the RV park we went.  The kids were ready to play right then! So we went to the waterpark which was just a walk.  It was so nice that evening.  Hardly any people were there so Lauren and Jon were able to do the big water slides several times.  Jon said Lauren kept saying "this is so cool" My Dad and Colton did a few of the bigger slides also.  My Mom, Allison, Kenton, and me stayed around the kiddie pool.  They both could stand up so they had such a good time.  The park was closing so we went back to the RV and cooked some hotdogs. By this time is was 8 or a little after! So Jon, Alliosn, and me went to the hotel to check in. I thought Allison would be so wore out she would just pass out.  NO such luck! She talked and moved around for about an hour then finally she went to sleep.  She kept hitting her head on the headboard and very early in the morning she rolled off the bed! She went right back to sleep though.  We had to wake her up to go back to the RV so we could go to the park again.  This time the park was packed! So much that Lauren didnt even want to wait in  line to slide.  There were plenty of other things to do though.  So we did all of those! Allison really liked the wave pool also.  I was afraid she would be scared of it.  I think she is ready to go the ocean now! We did the lazy river once but she didnt much care for that. There was a small slide in the kiddie pool and she did that I dont know how many times!! About 5 Allison got so sleepy but of course once my Mom got back to the RV she was wide awake.  We all decided we had had enough and called it a day also.  We were all wore out! We got to the hotel that night and Allison found the phone.  She kept picking it up and writing on the notepad just talking away! She went to sleep faster that night.  She only talked for about 30 mins.  She also slept backwards all night long but at least she didnt fall off the bed or hit her head on the headboard. We came back on Sunday.  It was a great trip! Allison really surprised me at how well she did.  Of course in the RV she could move around and that made a huge difference in the riding to and from.

Lauren's 5 yr check up

I took Lauren for her 5 year check up last week.  She is 38lbs and 44" tall.  She was 25% in her weight and up in the 90's for her height. She is just perfect in every way! She did great with her shots.  Afterwards we went and found her a backpack for school.   It is hard to believe she will be starting school in less than a month! Time just went by so fast!

4th of July Fireworks!!


We took the Girls to watch fireworks last night.  They loved it! It was a really good firework show! They had a good time just playing around in the park before hand. They had their light up necklaces on and were running around every where.  It was just a big party up there.  When the fireworks started Allison kept saying "WOW"!

Today we played on the slip n slide and the girls painted. Allison really loved doing that!

A trip to the toy store

I took the girls to Toys r us earlier this week so Lauren could use her birthday coupon and the rest of her money she had.  At first she was all about looking at things then her normal I hate shopping self came out! She started picking up things just to get and finally turned to me and said I am tired of shopping can we just go home!! Then she spotted the pillow pet blanket! She just had to have that! I was ok with that since I figure she will get more use out of the blanket than a toy.  Allison on the other hand was still going strong the entire time! She found a little shopping cart and had to push that all around the store. Then she spotted a purse and had to carry that. I was able to get her to stop paying attention to those things only for her to find this little elephant lovie.  She had to hug it a few times and wanted to carry it around but then some bubbles got her attention and she didn't want the lovie anymore.  Funny how my kids love their blankets!
