We recently had some friends visit us and on one of the days they were here we drove to a nearby mountain (Mt. Eerie). You can drive close to the summit and then hike around a bit! Rylie especially loved it and the views were amazing!
We have nicknamed Taitlyn "Joe Dirt" because she LOVES to play and eat dirt...seriously! On this particular day she actually layed stomach down in the dirt (as you can see from the pic) and made "snow angels" in the dirt with her arms. It was hilarious!
Where's Waldo? Can you find Philip in this pic?!?!?
Taitlyn clueless to her surroundings! Rylie enjoying the view

Daddy was trying to watch football but Madison had other plans!

The school that Rylie is going to does lots of fun "Family Nights" to help create community within the school. The first one for this year was a Skate Night at a local roller skating rink. Rylie has roller skates at home (Barbie ones!) but this was her first time on "real" skates at a "real" rink! Daddy strapped on some skates to help her around the rink. Before we knew it though she was doing it herself and looked like a pro! She had a great time and Madison and Taitlyn both had lots of fun watching!
Getting some refreshments from the snack shack!

I know I haven't posted in a while but we honestly haven't been doing much that "picture worthy"! We've been spending lots of time with neighbors and friends but not necessarily in ways where we would be taking pictures. We did have 5 of our neighborhood friends over the other day after school and we took a few pictures so I decided to post some of them!

Rylie started Kindergarten today which was a huge milestone in our lives...one I really never expected to actually arrive! In fact, I have been kind of dreading this day for a couple of months now but I have to admit the anxiety leading up to today was much worse than what I had anticipated. Rylie did so good! She walked bravely into her room and went to "circle" time when it began...although she did have a few tears at that point. I had promised myself I wouldn't let her see me cry so I kept my promise. A friend of ours though, whose son is in her class, did start crying when she saw Rylie get teary-eyed! She did great though we left soon after that. When I picked her up she said she had a great time! She has a wonderful teacher who is a great match for her personality. I don't think the day could have gone any better! It was emotional but not in a sad way...in a way that we were able to celebrate this next phase of life and I can now look forward to all of the memories to come!

We decided to make the night before our first day of kindergarten a special day as well so we spent family time together last night and did lots of fun stuff. I let Rylie pick our "menu" for the night and told her we could have whatever she wanted...pizza, McDonalds, pasta, etc. She picked "pasta" which was actually spaghetti, broccoli and mandarin oranges!!! It was great and she ate a ton which is very rare! Maybe I should let her pick our menu more often! After dinner we took baths and then I did the big girls' nails. They chose sparkly nail polish...of course!
