More pictures of the cuties...
Since Bella was born I have taken her and then her sisters to Amazin Acres every Fall for a hayride and to pick a pumpkin. This year I found out that they also do strawberry picking so a couple of friends and I decided to take our kids(all 9..4 and under).
The kids were all so excited to see each other. I love how Hannah and Brayden are holding hands in this picture..so cute!
They were very eager to get started..
Makayla was mostly content just sitting ON the strawberries.
Bella loooved picking the strawberries. It got hot really fast and we were all starting to melt, but it didn't bother this one at all!
The girls each had their own basket but neither had a full basket. I combined their baskets and it ended up costing $9.00 for a big basket of berries...and they were really good. We ate most of them that day.
It was a fun afternoon with friends even if it did get hot. The kids just escaped from the sun into the cars and played there while Ashley and Bella finished up:) Plus, we ended up with a tasty snack!

Well, it's official, my computer is a goner. The good news is there is a new one on it's way! And my lens came back today, so I can actually take pictures again without standing a football field away! Yay.
I didn't get to document it on here but I finished my 21 day challenge.
I lost 10 pounds in the 21 days and went down 1 pant size. I'm very happy with the results! I also came down with a nasty stomach bug and lost an additional 2 pounds soon after. I can't say that I'm happy about the bug, but happy that those 2 pounds are now gone. I'm not sure where I'm going to go from here. I will definitely continue working out and eating healthy but I liked having a "challenge". If anyone has any good ideas..I'm all ears.
This picture was taken post workout..and by "post workout" lets just assume that I mean right after my actual workout..not 5 hours later and still in the same clothes...and still breaking a sweat after chasing my kids around outside. And still wearing no make-up and being covered in a nice chocolate substance thanks to Makayla. Brava to you moms out there that have on real clothes and make-up. I will try and do better..maybe.
And speaking of Makayla...this girl is a mess. She makes me laugh a lot and is such a mommy's girl..and I LOVE IT! She kept saying cheese and when she heard the camera take the picture she would bust out giggling.
She keeps me on my toes and as much as I love her going non-stop and getting into everything..I also love this
I love watching her sleep and every once in a while curling up and taking a nap with her! But then she's back at it again! Just like her sisters.
Bella got this Jeep from my parents a couple of years ago for her birthday. She has just recently decided that she likes driving it and her sister around. She will definitely need driving school as you can tell from the bucket she ran over that I had to fish out! Like mother/like daughter:)
Except for the dancing part...Mommy can't dance! But Bella is a great little dancer. I love the last few minutes of dance class when the parents get to come in and watch. I can tell she is learning a lot and really enjoys it. I'm looking forward to her dance recital this month to see both of the dances she has been working so hard on!
