hello again ....

Hi everyone! Here is a little taste of what we have been up to lately. Cora has starting
cooing and talking up a storm. It is so fun to see her little personality coming out and
her smile just melts me!

Hayden is now pretty much potty-trained. He will probably hate me for these pictures in a few years, but that's what Mom's do - we embarrass our kids, right! He has been running around in his undies all week and here he is showing his ribs. It's one of his favorite tricks.

Our first big outing was to the carnival in Parkville. Gotta love the carnie rats! Hayden had an absolute blast and is still talking about all of the fun rides. It was $15 well spent!

These slide pictures were pretty funny to look at. Nate took Hayden first and in every picture, they look like they are both scared to death. Then I took Hay and he has the biggest grin on his face in every one.

We have also hit the pool a lot in the past few weeks. Hayden and Cora both love it and it is a great way to beat the crazy heat here in Missura.

Our little town also had a party where they shut down the main street and brought in a big stage and a pretty good 80's band. Hayden loved dancing to the music.

To start off our 4th of July fun, on Saturday we went to the parade in Parkville with all of our neighbors. All of the kids went away with the biggest haul of candy you have ever seen. After that, we had a fun BBQ at the Burneson's and then did a few fireworks to finish the night off right.

Hay thought the sparklers were pretty cool until he grabbed one on the wrong end and totally burned his finger. Nice parenting, huh!

Sunday morning, Cora sported her holiday red and white and we had to take a few pictures of our little darling. She is one styling 10 week old!

Her Dad and Bro aren't too shabby either.

Sunday night we had another get together with our complex. Food and fireworks - does it get any better? Hay didn't love the fireworks up close and had his hands over his ears the entire time.

Here are just a few pictures of the past few weeks. Cora is growing like a weed and has started to smile and coo. She is such a doll and I feel so lucky to have her.

One of Hayden's favorite things is to help me out in the kitchen. He loves to perch on the countertop and sneak a taste of whatever I am cooking.

Isn't she the smoochiest!

A few posts ago we talked about the Linecreek Railroad.
We went again this weekend and took this little video:

We have the greatest people in our ward. Our friend Vic was admiring Hayden's golf inspired Sunday clothes and told Hayden that he had some golf clubs that were just his size. Hayden was so excited and sure enough, Vic dropped off a little putter and driver and the cutest little golf bag for him. He seriously hasn't put it down since. He is in heaven!

And to end it right - Here is Hayden singing his little heart out. We had to bribe him to sing for the camera by telling him that if he sang really well, we could ride the train. It worked!

Dear Kate,
If you wake up one morning and all of Cora's hair is gone... It wasn't Laney, I promise.
