Jaedyn has always been my little fishy, from day 1.  I would bring her to the pool almost daily her first summer in the world we live in.  She still is my little fishy.  Now Hallee on the other hand, she will sit in it if the water is only 1inch deep of water.  Ya she doesn't care for it and if it's the slightest bit cool that's not even ok.

I went to the store when the pool opened and got Jaedyn a bunch of toys.  Rings, buckets, balls, squishy things...She has to have her basket of toys every time we go.  She's lost a few but it's ok but she's so smart she always remembers the things she lost and asks about it.

'Miss Hallee Poo' (ya I'm sure she'll appreciate that nickname one day...lol) She's soo sensitive she didn't want to be in the water so I'm bouncing her on my legs.  Look how super cute she is, in that floppy hat!

Every time we go to the pool I try to feed her right before we go, but make sure it's at nap time so when we're there I can put her in the stroller and Jaedyn and I can play in the water with the stroller right there while she sleeps.  This was her waking up.  Since this summer has been SUPER hot, like 100's most days I constantly will put water on her head and face so she doesn't overheat while she's sleeping, luckily she doesn't wake up from it, it must be relaxing for her.

Our pool is a super nice pool.  It has big slides, kiddie slides, jungle gym in the water for the kids volleyball net, diving boards, lilly pads to balance on, and a lazy river.  My sister watched Hallee so I could take Jaedyn on the lazy river.  Jae thinks it's pretty cool especially since she can kick and float.  Good thing she starts swim lessons next week...She's gonna love it!

Jaedyn's great aunt, Aunt Donna from Luther's side (there's a great Aunt Donna on both Luther and my side) came to visit from Utah and she brought presents for the kids.  One of the things Jaedyn got was a apron.  Which I was excited about because I've been wanting to get Jaedyn a apron.  Not just any apron but a super cute one so buying the aprons at hobby lobby are just plain so that would require me to make one and when I sew I have long battles with my sewing machine so I haven't done it because it would make me to mad and it probably wouldn't even turn out that cute so when Aunt Donna brought this darling apron for Jaedyn it took just another thing off the list of me eventually getting.

The first thing we made with Jaedyn's apron on was jello jigglers.  Did you know you could make jello jigglers really easily.  You know the kind of jello that you can pick up and it won't fall apart in your hands.  Ya that's pretty cool! All it is, is 4 small packages of jello with 2.5 C boiling water.  You DON'T add cold water then you put it in a 9x13 put it in the refrigerator let it set up then put the bottom of the dish under hot water for 15 sec to soften the bottom then you cut it in squares or if you want to be a super cool mom/grandma you use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.  (Wasn't planning on writing the recipe but it just kinda happened so your welcome if you didn't know how to do that :))

It was super fun doing this and she loved it!  It was really the first time I let her help me with cooking food, now she helps me all the time and always have to have her apron on.

Thank You Aunt Donna!

 Can I just say how hard it is to get/give gifts to Luther.  He is so picky and when it comes to gift giving for him he just wants something that he needs.  Ya that's great! But the problem is he gets everything he needs and wants so when it comes to gift giving it's almost impossible.  So I've seen these DAD photos going around pinterest a lot and I thought that was perfect for him especially since he has been wanting a picture of his girls for his desk at work. 

So when I went to Hobby Lobby to get the letters and there was a problem... everybody and their mom is doing the exact same project.  So all the unfinished wooden letters D and A were gone so I had to buy the finished ones.  (That's fine it was just more expensive) But that's ok :)

So I took my girls to my parents house and got them all done up with their super cute matching outfits and tried to take pictures.  Let me just say what should've taken 5 minutes took an hour.  Jaedyn 'gets her picture done' when she wants it done.  SO there was a lot of bribing involved. 

Here are some pictures that ended up being taken:

This picture is convincing Jaedyn to hold Hallee, and Hallee was screaming and Jaedyn was yelling...
HA that was pretty funny!

This picture was trying to get them to lay in the vinery.  Let me just say the vinery is very soft but as you can tell neither one wanted or liked it.

This picture is trying them to hold the letters and since Hallee is barely 3 months and probably the chunkiest baby ever she can't sit up not even partially so we're trying to hold the back of her up by her outfit...Nope she didn't like that either...even if we could get her to sit up Jaedyn's not looking and you can't even see the letters so this one was a failure too.

In this picture we were doing the same technique with them sitting on a flower well at my parents because it's pretty but the background didn't even look as good as I had envisioned and AGAIN Hallee didn't like it.

And out of the million pictures we took we chose this one because it was the best one.  Jaedyn is half smiling and Hallee is sorta looking at the camera.  BUT guess what...This was the very first picture taken...DANG! I went through a hour of headache for nothing but on the bright side he LOVED it and it is on his desk!

Jaedyn has had her fair share of corn but This was her very first corn on the cob that she ate by herself and she LOVED it!
Doesn't she look like a pro?
Her cheesy smile :)
