i thought i would just fill everyone in on what we have been up to. we have been outside playing. addy has fallen in love with everything that has to do with the great outdoors. one of her favorite things is to jump on the trampoline. the only problem with this is that she likes to tease us. she gets really close to the edge and then runs away and laughs. she thinks she is so funny:) tonight it was so nice that we were throwing the baseball around she was laughing and runny around our legs and then she started running into the road. at 18 months she already knows how to push my buttons. but its so easy to forgive her. she also likes to collect rocks and chase bugs around. she has discovered potato bugs. she followed one around today for a half hour. by the end i felt bad for the bug so i put it into the dirt to set it free.
we also have lots of exciting things coming up in the next few weeks. on tuesday casey's brother dallin is coming home from his mission. he has been serving in washington state. we are really excited to see him. we have been showing addy his picture so she can recognize him. well that's what we are hoping. next saturday casey's sister melissa is graduating and we are very proud of her! then on june third it will be our three year wedding anniversary. it seems like we just got married. well lots of fun summer things to come. i get excited just thinking about it.

addy had a couple of firsts this week. she had her first dress-up session. i knew it was going to happen soon she loves going through her clothes and throwing them around the closet. :)

her uncle sean helped her dress up like a cow girl. she loved it

yes she is sitting in a box. he was pulling her around like it was her wagon.

and this off the shoulder number was all her. i looked over the other morning and she was sporting this look. almost a wardrobe malfunction. ha ha

her other first was running through the sprinklers with her uncle sean. they always seem to find the trouble.

i love seeing her reaction to things for the first time. she always surprises me. she is fearless! i'm very grateful for the joy she brings to our family.
