The nursery

I have finally finished the Nursery. It was a LOT of hard work, but well worth it in the end. It turned out great and will be something that will grow with him as he gets older!

Here are some pictures:

This one is just of the shelf and all of the bins. I got so bored on Maternity Leave that I put vinyl labels on all the bins!

The shelf (before it was full) and the changing table. We also put up curtains. They are a light green color!

The crib, glider chair, and the horrible, time consuming, back aching, painted wall! It ended up not being what I started out with the intention of, but I think it works all the same!

We got ALL of the furniture at Yard Sales this summer, so they started out as mis-matched odds and ends. Luckily my brother-in-law was nice enough to spray them all black for us so that they look brand new and they look cohesive! Thanks Trev!

Swimming at Grandma and Grandpas!

Today I went swimming at my parents house! Heather and the kids were there, as well as some neighbors. It's not a huge pool, but it sure is fun to have EVERYONE in the pool at once!

Here are some fun pictures

Grandpa got in a water fight with Dakota!
Grandma would empty the pool of all the toys, and Dakota kindly put all of them back in!
We are horrible people.....bribing a 1 year old with DP so that she would walk for us!

The girls hanging out with their legs in the pool!
She didn't want to get in the pool, but wanted to play with the water.
Being "got" by Grandpa!
Marley swimming on her own. What a great kicker!

Not sure what she is doing here
Marley was helping Grandpa clean the pool
Hendrix's first time jumping on the tramp with the sprinkler under it. At first he stood on the side and kept saying "i don't like it" until I told him that he could jump around it. Once he got wet he started yelling "I LIKE IT, I LIKE IT"

Dakota got water in her mouth!
Marley loved being "got" by the aligator
Marley did really well swimming around the pool with the water wings on. Not even Dakota would swim without a ring floaty
They were in a boat fight
Haha, apparently the adults needed the ring floaties too! Aren't Heather and I so cute? The aligator hides my belly!
Hendrix just watched a lot of the time. Unless Grandpa was in the water, he didn't really want to be in.
Dakota hung out on the ladder most of the time!

It was a lot of fun to hang out with everyone, even though there was A LOT of screaming from the kids! Grandma kept telling them that there was no screaming aloud in the pool. About 3 minutes later, Hendrix squirted her with a water toy and she screamed. Haha, "There's no screaming in the pool Grandma"

Baby Shower!

Last night mom and Heather threw me a baby shower down in Pleasant Grove. It was great to see all the family and friends that I had not seen in forever.

Here are some pictures!

Marley LOVES Rachel

The sweats from Gram and Grandpa....So cute!
Is this not the most precious thing ever? It even has a matching blanket. Rachel is so crafty!
Can't have enough sleepers!
Mom always took pictures while I was laughing or talking....so attractive huh?
Marley REALLY ENJOYED her chocolate fountain!

The yummy food!!!
Heather was the one in charge of the games!
Do I look hot and uncomfortable yet?!?
Everyone filling out the games!!
