Cali's fort

Over the weekend we got a freezer to store up food for when the twins come and most Gluten Free food like bread comes frozen so we needed more space.

Using Disney's Agent Oso's steps we created a fort!

Step 1 - Lay the box on its side

Step 2 - Draw the windows and have Daddy cut them out

Step 3 - Decorate the box

Step 4 - Play time

Cali is 2.5 years old!

Ta-da I'm 2.5!
Where has the time gone?  How is our little girl 2.5 years old?  She is such a joy and a blessing!

Fun Cali Facts:
If she is awake she is talking - non-stop (unless Dora is on TV).   She is getting braver about eating new foods and doing new things.  She is afraid of bugs because she got stung a few months ago.  She talks in her sleep just like her Daddy.  She is very polite and says "please" and "thank you".  We are working on potty training but her interest goes in and out.  She still takes an afternoon nap (Praise the Lord!).  She is becoming an "I can do it myself" monster.  And she makes our lives better everyday!

We love you Cali Maple!

Tenn. Mountain Trip

We were lucky enough to spend a week in the Tennessee mountains with Nick's mom and his brother's family.  We stayed in a beautiful log cabin in Pigeon Forge.  The girls had a great time playing together and with Maw Maw.

We even went on a few adventures!  A big highlight for Cali was a horseback ride with daddy and Maw Maw.  They spent an hour on a trail ride in the mountains.  Cali loved it!  She even fell asleep at one point! She got off and couldn't stop talking about riding the big horse and that it was "bumpy".  After the horse ride we feed some goats at the petting zoo.

Another day we played in a pool.  Everyone had fun playing and splashing around.

She had a great time shopping, eating and hanging out at the cabin!  It was a fun week!
