Come on, come talk to me

Let's talk about Q. 
Man, this girl is crazy. but crazy in a good way. She makes me laugh all the time. She is so energetic, dramatic, talkative, quizzative, expressive, and kind. 

here are some little tid bits about my miss Q. 

1. She loves herself some bandages (yes she calls them bandages not bandaids). Elsie had hurt her finger, and Q then felt like she hurt her nose and thus a bandage was needed for healing. 

2. She loves herself some babies. She will point out every baby every where we go, and say "look at that cute baby!" in the loudest voice possible. 

3. She was getting really good at riding Elsie's scooter, but then graduated to her own bike. We are still working on steering and pedaling at the same time, but she is getting pretty good, and really loves it. 

4. This girl is a fish. She loves herself some water. A few weeks ago we had filled these buckets for the girls to use with the water squirters, but instead they decided to make them into ghetto pools. But they had so much fun. look as these poses in the buckets. some really good booty tooching going on there (any top model fans out there)

Speaking of water. Q had a very successful spring filled with swim lessons. She completed preschool levels 1-3 in 3 sessions, and really progressed quickly. She loves swimming, loves the water, and really enjoyed floating on her back in the water.

5. She loves being outside. Whether it's the park, or kim's backyard, or anywhere. She loves being out in the nice weather. collecting sticks or rocks, playing on the swings, digging in the dirt, or enjoying the sun.  



6. She loves cute things. These pink sparkly shoes are her favorite and she tries to wear them as much as she can. She insist I paint her nails all the time, and I musn't forget the glitter! Often when I get done doing her hair in the morning, she'll look at herself in the mirror and exclaim "it's gorgeous!".
I got her this cute shirt, and I just think it makes her look so bohemian urban. She thought she was so adorable. 

another funny thing about Q:
She is getting a lot better at coloring, and sometimes I can even tell what she's trying to draw. The girl is funny when it comes to coloring. She wants to draw on the randomest things. Every card, every piece of paper-especially receipts, junk mail, flyers, every little baggy, every object she finds, she feels the need to color. I've had to tell her multiple times that we only color on paper, but I think she may be some random graffitti artist when she gets older (watch on Banksy)

Cause you know where I'll be found... When I come around

Oh what a good time when Mitch comes around! In his transition time between leaving New York and entering into a new phase In Toronto, Mitch took some time to come and hang out with us in Utah for a few days. Q was so excited to have him stay with us, and she was never too far away from his lap. We didn't do anything terribly exciting (that's the good thing about family), but it was just nice to hangout all together and have Mitch with us. We hung out at Kimmie's a few days, went to a park, watched Q at swim lessons, had a little Earl get together, played games, and watched shows/movie. We never know the next time we will see Mitch, so we just treasure the time we get and enjoy each other. He is such a great uncle to the kids and they just love him. He's so easy going, and just such a fun guy to have around. 
playin with Charlie. 

at the Spanish Fork park and splash pad. 

We didn't think the fountains would be up and running yet, so we weren't prepared, but it was such a nice day that we let the girls run and play around in their clothes. It took them awhile to really get into it (longer for neat and clean Elsie) but they ended up soaked and smiling.

 (I was stupid and didn't think to put on some makeup for the last day of hanging out, knowing full well that we would take some pictures, so with my blonde (and sparse) eyebrows, and blonde tipped eyelashes, my face just blends into itself. haha)

Earl hang out night and hot fudge sundaes!
 oh these girls couldn't get enough of the baby. 
 Doug Earl family representing. Angelique was there too, but I think was upstairs with her kids in the picture. It was sooooooooooo fun chillin with the fam and telling stories. 

Such a great visit!
