Labor Day weekend

The directors from ProStaff were invited to the big boss' lake house over the Labor Day weekend with families. It was so much fun. We left Carter with Josh's mom and drove out east. Much different than the cabins I'm used to in MN. This was a beautiful lake home. All of the kids are great swimmers so they took turns jumping off the dock, (from the top level it's about 15 feet) riding the jet ski, tubing and fishing. This was Ryleigh's first real experience in a lake so she was very concerned about fish biting her feet. She also got a splinter in her foot which she lost her freaking mind over.

Josh and I also thought we could stay up until 5 am. Never doing that again. The next day was super fun with 3 hours of sleep. We had a birthday party and a family gathering at our house. I now realize I am TOO OLD to stay up past my bedtime.

Josh was fishing with just a line, no pole, and caught 3 fish off of the dock.

She did it..........

So we've had the talk and I've been waiting for this to happen eventually and yesterday she finally did it.

She cut her own hair! Thankfully it was only a tiny curl but I walked by it and picked it up and there it was a little blonde curl. I am just not ready to let go of them yet. She does not like her hair, mostly because it hurts so much to brush through it and it gets so tangled so easily. She keeps saying she wants to cut it like mine. NOPE! Sorry not yet......maybe before Kindergarten next year.

Carter is beginning to babble a lot....reminds me a lot of his very talkative sister. He is getting close to rolling over on to his stomach and is putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. With the excessive drooling I'm thinking we may have a tooth coming soon. I still am amazed at how much he looks like his sister did. Josh was happy at softball on Tuesday, 2 people told him that Carter looked just like him.
