 ...trying to pick the highlights of the summer to catch up and get back to more current things.  I'm the type of person that if I get too far behind, I don't want to just move on, I want to go back and spend time catching up.  The only problem with that is I think I have too much catching up to do and I never seem to spend the time.  Its a full random  I also haven't been taking many pictures.  The few that are still on my camera are going to be there awhile, my sweet honey packed my cord to the camera, so I can't upload.  Oh, BTW, I haven't mentioned it on here, but we are moving in a couple of weeks.  We are super excited and when I can get my pictures uploaded I'll share all about the move and new house pictures.  How random was all of that?  It has nothing to do with my pictures...moving on!

In July, my mom brought the cousins to visit.  HG is absolutely in LOVE with her cousins.  They are so sweet to her and do anything she wants.  She like having someone to boss that will listen :)   

Mom and I decided to take the kids to Wild Animal Safari.  It was so much fun and we found out it was perfect for all the kids.  
On our way...cute Chloe

First time on a bus

In heaven feeding the deer.  That is Chloe's favorite animal.

A little Iphone to pass the

The animals get really close...kinda gross if you ask me, but the kids really liked it.
Can you see the camel's head?

It was a little long for sleepy HG

But, she had no problem being entertained by gram.

Kate feed a yak, I think?

If you are ever in Strafford, MO take the time and go to the Wild Animal Safari, it is way worth the time:)

A Trip to NWA

Early July, HG and I headed down to Fayetteville to spend some time with Maw Maw and Aunt Jo (a.k.a Jo Jo).  We had such a fun time and HG ate up all the attention she got at Maw Maw's house.  One evening we went outside to water the plants.  Hadley was all about helping :)
Hg and Maw Maw

Helping JoJo

Forget the bucket, she went straight for the hose

Which turned into a huge mud puddle. See, I told you she is a big help.

I love her little arm here, watering with style.

Now it was time for the sprinkler...aka ball wash:)

Now that she is soaking wet, she decided to carry the sprinkler over to the flowers.

Helping JoJo clean up

This girl is happiest when she has a job..she says, 'help you momma' all the time

While HG was busy playing, I snuck away and got to snuggle this sweet thing.
My friend Terria just had the sweetest baby girl, Sarah Grace.

There is nothing like spending some quality time with my Maw Maw and Aunt Jo.  We don't do it often enough, but when we do, it is priceless.

Movie Monday

Last week HG and I surprised dad at work with some lunch. All the way there she kept saying, 'daddy lunch, yay!'. She was so excited! When we got there, she decided to 'help' instead of eat right away. While she was playing, I decided to film her so you could see some of her excitement. When I asked her what she was doing I thought she was going to say 'working' or ' daddy lunch' but instead, this is what she said...

Cracks me up every time!

After lunch she decided it was time to race! She likes to say, ' on your mark, get set, go Hadley!'

She did finally slow down enough to grab a quick bite.

She was BIG stuff sitting in dads chair;).
