This is why you have kids! (jk)

My parent's went to the Swap Meet on Sunday and came back with a kid broom for Alexa! Lately she has been getting into the spice rack next to our bottom oven and she has been taking the salt out and shaking it onto the floor. So what do we do? We get the broom out and sweep it up! She started to notice what we did when she spilled something, so she wanted to start holding the broom when we would clean up her mess. Now she has her own broom and she loves playing with it! A couple of times she has picked up her broom and opened up the spice rack to get the salt and start shaking it out so she can clean it! How adorable is that?! She later realized that now we screw the top so no salt comes out, but she still had fun thinking she was making a mess. We love this girl so much!

They also came back with a very pretty butterfly balloon! We all thought Alexa would have popped it by now, but it's still inflated. She does try to put her mouth on it, but when we tell her to stop she is pretty good about listening. I just can't believe how much she understands now! She is getting so big and time is flying by way too fast! This pregnancy is going by fast too because Alexa takes up all my time!

Saturday we went to the Zoo! We met up with my brother and his family since they live literally right across the street! Now that Alexa walks, we were all excited to see her walk around at the Zoo, but she was a little crabby and wanted to be held most of the time. It was a perfect couple of hours!

4th of July

We had so much fun on the 4th of July! Fireworks are illegal where we live, so we didn't have any, but it's okay because we had beautiful weather and a pool! Alexa, Matthew, and I spent most of our day in the pool! It was very relaxing and Matthew and I got a little color! My dad made pork ribs for dinner with mashed potatoes and corn! It was delicious!!! 
Matthew and I didn't realize it until July 5th, but the 4th of July marks the day that we have been together for 9 years!

 9 years ago! 
This was taken right before or just after he had asked me out!
This is where it all began!
