Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend was a fairly quiet one this year. We just hung out at home or with family and friends. These are only a few of the pictures that I took.

In the next few photos, Mackenzie decided she need to be a baby. Here she is in the walker...

...and here she is in the baby swing.

Lola got jealous that Mackenize was in her seat.

Along with family BBQs, we shot trap. This is something we used to do all the time, but haven't been able to do. Thanks to Mike and Sean for letting us know about it. We really had a lot of fun and Miss Mackenzie didn't seem phased by it.

This is how she sat for most of the time.

Kasey brought Kourtni over....she is just so darn cute!!!

Lola turns 1!!!

Miss Lola turned 1 on June 21st. It was a hot/eventful day!! She was so cute and LOVED her cake.

Mackenzie helped Lola unwrap her presents


"Can I have some??"

After the party Uncle Adam pushed Mackenzie and Lola around on this toy. They giggled for hours!

Grant's Farm - 2010

Matt and I took a day off work to take Mackenzie to Grant's Farm. She loves farm animals and we thought this would give her a little more one on one with the animals than at the zoo. We are planning a zoo trip in the Fall...once it cools down!

Reading the brochure while riding on the "tram"

Mackenzie LOVED the goats!! She couldn't get enough of them

To cool off, Matt pushed her through the sprinkler

Loving the carousel. She cried when we would take her off!

We didn't even make it out of the parking lot when I turned around and saw her sleeping!! She had a very fun filled day with feeding the goats and petting all the animals. We can't wait to do it again!

Anywhere I go, you go

Mackenzie takes her blanket with her EVERYWHERE!! She goes from sitting on it to using it as a cape. I just captured a few pics of her with her "bankie".

When she is tired she likes to put it around her neck

We had a playdate with Jennifer, Bailey and Ava and had so much fun!! Here are just a few pics of the day.

Carter Philip Westadt - May 17, 2010

Carter Philip Westadt was born on May 17, 2010. We think all the walking my sister did at graduation helped with the delivery!! He is such a cute little boy (especially since he is the first boy in the family!!)!

Proud daddy and Big Sister Lola!!

Mackenzie loving the baby!
Carter at 2 months old!!

Ellen Graduates High School

My little sister, Ellen, graduated high school this past May. She was able to "graduate" early in December, but she decided to walk in May. It was really neat to see her walk across that stage...especially since I rememeber the day she was born.

B Before the ceremony

After. The girls did really good the whole day!

Ellen and Jake - Class of 2010

Jake holding the babies. Mackenzie just loves him. She calls him "ake"

Quick Re-Cap

So I have been really bad at updating pictures. It has been a busy summer so far. We have been enjoying every minute of it (even though it is hotter than EVER!!) Mackenzie is coming more and more independent and she is also talking a lot more. If we are not swinging (Mackenzie calls it "wing") we are playing in a little kiddie pool. She is also a true farm kid!! She loves to go out to the farm with Matt and feed the cows.

Anyways, enjoy the pictures. They are going to be a little dated, but I am going to try and get totally caught up.

Looking cool!!
Loving to mow the grass with Daddy!

I just LOVE this picture!

Karli reading to Mackenzie.

In our Easter outfit (I told you some were outdated)

A little catching up...

So I have not put any pictures on here in a while, so I am just going to post a few pictures from the last few months to get caught up.

This is the favorite way to go down the slide

I am going to drive this thing, Grandpa. Look out Mommy!!

I have no idea what this smile is. We call it her Popeye look.

Play with me daddy!!

Let's build this thing!
