July Happenings

Now that July is over I thought I should blog about some of things we did. It has also been on my list of things I need to get done before the baby comes. I only have pictures from the beginning of the month. We haven't really done much. It is too hot to be outside doing anything fun. I am usually hot just sitting indoors. I am just waiting for the baby to come. At this rate I am sure I will be going until my due date hopefully not beyond this time. I am getting excited for the baby to come. Slowly I am getting things set-up and ready.

My SIL Angie gave the girls these outfits for their birthdays. I love when they are matching so I had to get a picture. Elsa turned 2 on the 5th of July. She actually had 3 different birthday celebrations. These pictures are from her actual birthday opening gifts from Mom and Dad.

For the 4th of July we went over to my Brother Tyler's house for the 2nd Annual Barlow Family Olympics. It was a lot of fun. We spent most of the time in the pool which is the only way to survive the heat. We had good food too. We also celebrated Elsa's b-day with some cake and ice cream since all the family was together.
Elsa was being quite the stinker on this say when I was trying to get any pictures of her. Here she is enjoying the otter pops that we ate while watching fireworks. We had a lot of fireworks to set-off.

Caitlyn enjoying the sparklers and watching fireworks.

Here are the girls in the pool. They had so much fun with all the cousins.

Our attempt at a family photo. Elsa was having none of it.
Here is the cake that Wade made for Elsa. It was really good. He did a great job. The adults enjoyed this while the kids had cupcakes.

I was trying to get a picture of the girls together because they looked so cute in their matching shirts from Nana. I told you Elsa was being a stinker for the camera. Usually she is right there smiling, I don't know what her deal was. Caitlyn's is cute though.

Here are the pictures from Elsa's first birthday celebration when Nana was in town. My MIL Debby makes quilts for the kids when they turn 2. It was kind of big to ship so she used it as an excuse to come see her grandkids. The night before she left we got an ice cream cake from Coldstone and opened presents. Elsa was spoiled this year for her birthday.
