Well Summer has finally come..I thought it would never get here! It definitely is my most favorite time of the year. I love spending the majority of the day outside playing in the yard, trying to get plants to grow and driving my hubby absolutely crazy with all the projects I want to do around the house. He always tells me I have a chemical imbalance..I have no clue what he is talking about!:)
I love this picture below, it is a picture of our street. Almost everyday Abbie and I love to take walks down it and she always has to stop and wave at all the cows, horses and dogs that we pass along the way. Although this summer is not that easy..she now wants to get out about halfway through and push me in the stroller..ha yea right.. I only wish!!

This is our neighbor's bush, I always love when it is in pretty!

I came home the other day and Justin said he had a surprise for me. So instantly I thought he was the sweetest and had gotten me some stuff for the house I have been wanting. But I should have known.. I came home and this was his surprise. He and his bro Garret bought a 1960 something classic Ford truck. They love old cars and had been wanting to get an old mustang like they had in high school and fix it up. But when they saw this truck they decided they couldn't resist. It is actually really fun. All the inside is the original.. even the radio only plays AM so we only listen to 1960 music while drivin' around. Every time Abbie gets in she constantly says "cool daddy".

We finally got the patio shade cover thing finished(I can't think of what you actually call it) and the first thing Justin did was hang his hammock. I think this is where I will now find him whenever he isn't working!

Abbie's first encounter with a butterfly. It was so cute she kept laughing and trying to catch it and then she would ask the butterfly "what chya doin".

Can anyone say "BABY GOT BACK"!!!
While we were working in the yard Justin set up this little joy ride for Abbie to play on and man did she LOVe it!! Although we couldn't get Sadie to stay out but that didn't stop her, she busted up every time she and Sadie collided!

One of her favorite things now days is dressing herself in "pwetty skets". She is the most stubborn and independent little chick I've seen!! She insists on doing everything her way. I kept trying to pull her skirt up all the way but she wouldn't have it. I guess she already likes her booty hanging out..yikes!!!

This is exactly what my sweet little Abbs thinks of potty training!

This Memorial Day weekend we decided to take a little family rode trip down to Carlsbad Caverns. It was a lot of fun. The caverns were really neat. Abbie kept saying "dis es fon or cool daddy" She did really good the entire time until she got away just long enough to fall and skin her knee up. So of course her crying echoed big time throughout the entire caverns! I'm sure everyone was wondering who her crazy parents were!!

On our way home we decided to make a quick stop by the beach!! Yea right only in my dreams! This crazy picture is taken at white sands new mexico. It really is pretty weird .. in the middle of new mexico there is tuns and tuns of this white sand. I didn't get many pics b/c it was really bright and I forgot Abbie's sun glasses and she was super grouchy from being in the car forever! But it was worth the stop.. although all it basically did was really get me in the mood for lying on a real beach with waves drenching me, sippin' on a big fat diet coke and of course maybe a side of ice cream! Awww I could get lost in that dream for awhile!:)
As I was going through my camera I saw this pic and had to stop and look at it for a minute.. I can't believe how big she is getting, it honestly kinda makes me sad! Just ignore all the mosquito bites on her face, I swear my little chick is made of sugar, I can't keep those dang bugs off her!!!

Now I remeber why I dont blog too much anymore.. as I was just finishing this post I realized my little monster had snuck in the kitchen and emptied the enitre NEW bottle of dish soap all over the floor and rug! Oh the joys of parenthood!!
