Gold Medal

**Here is the finale of Madison's gymnastic classes. Each child received a gold medal and got to stand on the platform. It was adorable and Madison loved it.

We had a great trip to Seattle...saw lots of things, drove all around the city, and even made a trip into Victoria, B.C., Canada for the day. It was a busy trip, but well worth it. I can't believe I go back to work next week. This summer really flew by!

wisdom of a 2 year old...

#1: We were talking about who are boys and who are girl. Here is how the conversation went:
Kim: Is our dog Mickey a boy or girl?
Maddie: He is a boy!
K: Is daddy a boy or girl?
M: Daddy is a boy!
K: Is mommy a girl or a boy?
M: Mommy is a girl/boy, ha ha ha no mommy is a girl.
K: Are you a girl or a boy Madison?
M: I am a LADY!

#2 Driving down the street when we see a gardener's truck.
Madison: Look mom there is a lawn molar. Those are for daddy's!

P.S. She is right, I tried to mow the lawn once and it was a nightmare.

#3 Shopping with my mom in the shoe department:
Madison found a whole bunch of shoes for my mom to put on...
Madison: Nonie these are cute, try these on. No, Nonie, those are not cute, no those are too smalll.
So finally my mom finds some shoes she wants to buy...
Madison: Nonie, don't buy those they are not cute and they don't fit. You have black shoes.

#4 In the candy aisle, she found the mini M&M tubes.
Madison: Mom we have these at home.
Kim: What are they?
Madison: M&M's mom
Kim: What is in there?
Madison: (shaking the tube with a smile) It's sugar in there!

New Cousin

Babies are everywhere right now! My cousin and his wife welcomed "Jack David" this week. This is one of the cutest new born photos I have ever seen...

Suprise Party Success!

My parents are celebrating their 35th wedding anniversay this month and after months of planning, my sister and I threw them a great party this past weekend. They were totally surprised and we all had a blast. It was stressful to say the least, but in the end totally worth it! We had about 40 people, a live jazz band, great food, a delicious cake and even dancing!
