Last night we had Colby and Hali take a bubble bath. Aaron gave Colby a bubble hat.

We went boating with the Bradfords on Saturday, it was so fun. It was a hot day, I thought we would burn but we didn't. Once we started going the wind and the mist from the water really helped to cool us off. It was a great day!

We were both able to knee board, wake board and go on a huge tube and be thrown around. We liked the tube the best!Hali loved the boat. Watching the water and putting her hands in the water as it splashed by on the side of the boat.The hmmm of the boat put Colby to sleep. We got time to swim a bit in the water too and Hali and Colby really enjoyed that.

Now we are on our way to Idaho to visit lots of family and some friends! I am so excited to see everyone.I will try and post pics as soon as I get back!

Colby 8 months old

Hali making dinner for Colby

Colby and Hali are so great with each other. Colby loves that he can get around and is content playing by himself or with Hali for some periods of time. Hali loves being a big sister. She helps out with all she can. Today we were doing star fall and when it gets to the b for bear the bear roars and she came up to Colby and patted him on the head and gave him a side hug and said, "its okay Colby, your okay Colby." It was cute, but funny because he was not scared. Yesterday Colby made his way down the hall and was roaring. Hali pretended to be scared, screamed and hid behind papa at the other end of the hall saying, "mom, Colby scared me." Then she would run back laughing. All the while Colby was crawling down the hall and when she got close he would roar and they would both just laugh and laugh, it was really fun to watch. He eventually made it down the hall with lots of encouragement from Hali, "come on Colby you can do it... come on."

Hali also loves to do laundry sometimes. Hali helps me put all the clothes in and out of the machines and helps fold. She has been able to fold a towel for a while now but I got it on tape. It's fun to watch her!

Colby is now standing on his own for about 8-10 seconds at a time, as of last night. He just lets go, stands and gets so excited. He is such a little funny guy. He has been walking behind this little toy box all day to get around.

Colby can now wave hi or bye, clap and say da-da! I have yet to get them on tape though :(

A few updates

Hali is close to being potty trained which makes me think we should have waited till after the trip to Idaho but oh well. She has been in big girl undies all week, night and day with only two accidents. But her nap time is all screwed up, it's really hard to get her to nap any earlier than 4. I wake her up earlier but she is just cranky till 3 than falls asleep.Most of the time she won't nap at all. We are working on it this week to figure out the best schedule. I need to get back to working out in the morning!
Hali's little personality:
So My brother does not always do what I ask him to do when I tell him... typical. Well I had asked him several times with in a two hour period to turn off the he says to me well I am off to take a shower than to my friends and before I could swallow my food Hali says, "No,you not," then points outside and says "change the" Well he at least listens to her.

Colby is crawling all over the place he can pull himself up on to almost anything. He even tries to stand alone and he can for a few seconds. He can say milk in ASL and touch down. He gives bunks on the head and high fives and he dances to music. He also plays peek a boo. I bet he will be walking around by the end of September. He just loves getting around.

Aaron bought me a notebook computer to do my own work on. It's nice to have cause I can take it where ever the kids are and still print ;) He also bought me an early 5th year wedding anniversary present. He is such a sweetie.

Saturday My friend Ali invited me to ride her horses in lodi. She lives in Reno and doesn't get to see me or them very often so we all went and had a great time. I about killed myself though with in the first 5 mins or so. I guess I might have kicked the horse when putting my foot in the stirrup. The horse, Shelby, took of galloping. I felt like she was going so fast and would have jumped over the fence she was running straight at. luckily I pulled hard enough she listened and stopped. Ali says she does not jump fences though so I would have been okay unless I had fallen off. I learned how to sattel the horse, brush her and clean her feet. I also learned how to make her turn, trot, gallop, stop and go of course. Hali got to ride as well, first with Ali then with Aaron. I would have taken her too but Colby was hungry then it was time for lunch and a party so we had to be going.

So the blog is not uploading the pics right so I will post them soon

On Saturday the kids and I went to Mickie Grove park to meet up with my friend April, whom I had not seen in like three years! We had so much fun! She has two adorable kids. I also got to visit with her husbands side of the family and visit with my friend Roberta and her family. We had a lot of catching up to do. There were lots of witlle babies there for Colby to play with.oh when Hali saw the pool full of water she took off all her clothes and jumped in. I had to put her diaper back on for the pics though

Then we drove back to Stockton for a Birthday party for Hali's friend Madison she was truing two. The kids had a blast with the slide going into the pool and the cupcakes! I loved the cupcakes so Yummy also a great idea for the young birthday parties (note to self) then I stopped by yet another party my friends Anita was having. I couldn't stay long Hali wanted to jump in the pool and I wouldn't know what to do with Colby. By the time we got home I was so exhausted. We all got a little sun burnt too. But it was a fun day!

Colby is now officially crawling as of last night. At the beginning of the week he would crawl out to things with his hands and scoot his legs but he has figured out how to lift them and he loves it.

My Garden is growing like crazy I have way too many zucchinis I have made so much bread, muffins, salads, stir-fry's and grilled zucchini its crazy not to mention I have given away maybe two dozen of them as well. The rest of the garden is going well two. I get two cucumbers a week and a good amount of tomatoes. There are a lot of butter nut squash like 20 a few should be ready in a week or so. There is like 7-9 pumpkins. My cantaloupe fell off the vine before they were ripe so I am waiting for the others to get big:( The raspberries this year never bloomed so I am not sure what happened there. The beets are good though!
