Miridyan loved all of the water fountains. I think if she were able, she would have jumped in for a swim !!! Paityn was in awe of all the lights.
The girls found their very own little pink Golf Cart. It is a must have since their dads and grandparents are all golfers. They have already put in their request to Grandma and Grandpa.

Isn't he absolutely adorable !!! We named him Dodger. A girl that works with my dad was looking for someone to give the puppy to... the second we saw him we said YES !!! Well... the first night was the longest night we have ever had. We have never been up all night before, even with Miridyan. We tried everything to get him to just relax and sleep. We even let him up on our bed (which he ended up peeing on). We had little tiny poops all over our house. Not a good thing when you have a baby who will soon be crawling. Also, he was teething, and his favorite thing to chew on was Miridyan's feet... and she was not having that. We decided to give the little guy one more chance. The next night was much better, but we came to the conclusion that this wasn't the best time to have a puppy in our home. We ended up giving him back. It was pretty hard to let him go, but our baby is way more important.

She is still one of the happiest babies ever. Although... we are starting to see a little bit of a temper at times. Hopefully it is just from teething.

This one is just to show you what happens almost every time we put her down for a nap or to bed at night. We are not sure if she is telling herself a story or saying her prayers. It is so cute to listen to her though.

I finally gave in !!! I let Miridyan taste a popsicle and she loved it.

When we went to dinner at my parents house the other night, upon walking through the door, we were greeted with a couple of big mylar balloons with fish inside of them (not real fish, of course). My sister grabbed one and walked it over to Miridyan and said "Look what Grandpa bought for you".
Later that evening as I was talking to my mom, she told me that while they were at the store she saw the balloons that my dad had picked out for the girls and said ...
"Have you ever spent $6 on a balloon before?"
And without hesitation my dad replied...
"I've never had grandkids before."
Just one more reason to add to the list as to why Miridyan has one of the greatest Grandpas in the world. You are doing a remarkable job, dad.

Alright... so the other day I turned on CMT so that I could listen to music while I did dishes. You know how there are some songs that you sing along with all the time, but you never really think about what the words are? I love Rascall Flatts... more and more. Their music video Every Day came on and it really caught my attention. This is truly an amazing song. One of those songs that literally leaves you in thought. I cried while listening to the lyrics because I thought about all the people in my life who have been there for me. So many people. It is so easy for us to take "them" for granted. I want to say thank you to all of my friends and family who will forever be in my heart and in my life. Thank you for taking time out of your life to help enrich mine. When I think about the struggles I have been faced with in my life, I have to personally thank two of my best friends, Ashliegh & my mom, for being there for me during the worst of it. Ash, you have know idea how much you mean to me. I can't thank you enough. And mom... I can't tell you how much of a blessing you are in my life. I hope that the loved ones in my life have atleast on person who saves them every day. Here are the words to Rascal Flatts' song Every Day ...

The picture on the left is Lindsey's hair, and the one on the right was one of my favorites (all were great).
