Miss Ella Rae Crandall - 3 years old

Miss Eden Kate Crandall - 2 months away from being 2 years old....hence the refusal to smile!!!!!

Vacation Days 2 and 3

Vacation day #2 was fairly uneventful for the girls but FANTASTIC for me! I left the house around 10am, ran some errands, met a friend for lunch and then ran some more errands before returning home to clean the house and pick my mom up from the airport. It was pretty late when we got home and got the girls in bed but below is a picture of the most delicious tomatoes I've ever tasted in my life!!! They don't look pretty but they taste AMAZING!! My mom flew them in from Indiana. THANKS DAD!!

Vacation Day #3 (today) was spent swimming and eating with Kyla, her girls and Laurie. It was a great day!

Eating lunch

Eden found a recorder

Kyla encouraging the hideous noise!!

Ella and Ava creating letters to mail
Laurie taught the girls how to make marshmallow men and Ella thought it was hilarious

Ella's little guy

Ella having a blast in the pool

Ella did great with her swimming techniques today. She kept jumping off of the second step and going under water. Super cute!

Ava and Ella
Laurie was a trooper with the girls. They kept making her holds hands and jump into the pool.....which she did because she is a great JoJo!

Although there was a huge pool to play in, the girls still spent a lot of time in the fountain of all places!!!
My favorite picture of the day. Ava and Ella were EXHAUSTED by the time dinner rolled around. Check out the look on Ella's face.
We had a wonderful time! THANK YOU KYLA!!!!

I just turned on my Outlook out of office message because for the next 7 days I AM ON VACATION!!!! I intend to spend the next 168 hours spending time with the 3 most important reasons I work....

Eden Kate - my beautiful 21 month old that is growing like a weed and makes me laugh on a daily basis....

Ella Rae - my 3 year old that acts like a 22 year old and is the best big sister a girl could ask for....and last but certainly not least, David - my hot husband who treats me like a queen and would sacrifice anything for me!!

My goal is take pictures on a daily basis and post about the adventures of our week since I haven't posted in months and might actually have time this week to play catch up.

These particular pictures were taken today at Auntie Ashley's pool. We had a blast!!!

Here's to wishing for a relaxing week of NO WORK!!!!! :)
