Michael + Caroline

whole fam2
Michael and Caroline got engaged this weekend!!
the kids
I just love them so much together and apart and could not be more excited for them. I am so so excited about having her in our lives forever and having another sister.
He popped the question (and she said yes!), and then he and my mom (and christopher and kyla, of course) came up with a fantastic surprise family party for her afterwards.
Since she works for Southwest airlines, we ran flew with the plane theme.  They used all of Southwest's "Nonstop Love" slogans and made banners for Michael and Caroline with their own logo with their names on it.
They never cease to amaze me, those three.
here they come!
It was just so much fun.
And she was totally surprised!

And my baby was so overwhelmed with excitement that she cried tears of joy the entire time and had to be driven around to finally calm down (which we have never done).  Just so much LOVE pouring out everywhere.
Love you guys SO MUCH and cant wait for the wedding planning to begin!!!


Art Camp

Ella and her friend Katelyn did art camp a couple weeks ago. Julie and I would drop them off at 9 and then pick them back up at noon. The theme for art camp was Bug's Adventure so they would make all kinds of bug themed crafts each day.
You had to be 5 to do the art camp so McKenna and Lily were stuck with us moms for the week. It ended up being such a fun week for the little sisters too! They loved being with just each other and we did a different activity with them each day.
Julie got all kinds of fun art supplies and even made them their own aprons. We set up our own little art camp at the park and let them paint away.
They created some pretty cute father's day gifts.
There was a splash pad at the park so we let them get wet in their clothes. Lucky for me, I am a car hoarder and had a couple of McKenna's dresses in the car for them to change into after. If I had cleaned my car out, we would have soaked the car with wet kiddos, they probably would have cried the whole way home from being cold, might have even gotten them sick from sitting in wet clothes for so long...who knows how bad it could have been. Good thing I basically saved their lives by having some dry clothes. Moral of this story (I'm talking to you babe) is that maybe having a messy car is sometimes better than having a clean one! (just let me think that, it makes me feel better about myself)
We took them to the movie, bounce house place, open gym, fed the ducks and even let them wonder around the dollar store for some fun treats. 
It was such a fun week and we loved getting to see all the cool artwork that the big sisters created! 
Ella was most proud of her clay ladybug. Love my little artist!
