so my little bela girl will be 4 on tuesday!! I can barely believe it.


chalk festival

ok so i know this was nearly 2 months ago, but i took bela to the chalk festival at the art museum in september. she ended up with more on her than anywhere else, but we both had a blast. afterwards we went to lakeview cemetary to wander a bit and take pictures, that didnt last long though because bela didnt seem to be as into it as me.


happy 4th of july!

so we decided to let bela stay up to the fireworks tonight. she took a nap earlier and was excited to watch. from chris' apt we can see fireworks from like 6 locations. she wasnt really into it but enjoyed doing sparklers with daddy. by ten she was asking to go to bed so she didnt get to see the big downtown ones. i guess we know now that next year we should just skip it.



jamie and i took the kids to the farmpark on friday.


meet the trucks... and more

i took bela to "meet the trucks" on saturday. the one picture is her sitting in the back of the police car and the other is her climbing out of the ambulance. we went to malleys after, as you can see by her ice creamy face, and she wanted a picture with the alice in wonderland mural on the wall.


this kid

heres some pics of bela not in pink. oh and a video cuz i know you enjoy her sweet singing voice.


oh right

so yesterday i had one of those weird conversations with brett that makes you laugh afterwards, like wow.. never thought i would say that. we got home from my moms and brett asked "did you get her hair cut again? it looks different." my response "nope, my mom just straightened it with the flat iron."

haha it did look cute though!!


just pics

here are a few pictures that were hanging out on my phone. enjoy!
