Catching Up...

It's been awhile since I've updated...I have been such a bad blogger! We have been super busy though, so I thought I would update everyone on what we've been doing.

Whitney, Ana Kate, and I went to Hardy to visit family and friends at the end of June for a few days and had a great time! It was SO good to see everyone!

The weekend after we got home Doug and I took Ana Kate to the zoo in Tulsa and she LOVED it! It was SO hot to be walking around the zoo all day, but we had fun. Ana Kate seemed to like the fish the best, so we really need to take her to the aquariam next time.

We then headed to Iowa for the 4th of July to see Doug's family. We had a nice visit although it rained for the 4th and got quite chilly. During our Iowa trip I was able to sneak over to Illinois to spend a day with my friend Michelle. It was so nice to be able to see her and it seems that we've started a trend...this was the 3rd year in a row that we have managed to see each other during the 4th holiday...definitely a trend we want to continue. She's expecting her 3rd boy at the end of this month and I'm very excited for her! Ana Kate got to see her first fireworks show and she absolutely loved Michael and Matthew.

Since we've been home from Iowa we haven't done a lot. Doug started building a playhouse for Ana Kate and it's really starting to take shape. She loves being outside and 'helping' Daddy. I also let her play in the water some this week, but it's just so hot outside we don't last very long. There are TONS of pictures below....enjoy!

Cash & Ana Kate playing at DeAnn's house. They were so cute....made me think back on all the time Whitney, Donnie, and Jake played together.

Not into this AT ALL....


Not really into the carousel either....but she liked it once it got started.
