Waterslides & Waterballoons

A few weeks ago Chads school (Midwestern University) had an activity that we went to & had an amazing BBQ & lots of water fun! I love that his school is so geared towards family & social events. They always have fun stuff going on after class & even have lots of activities on a weekly basis for Mothers & Kids. I am so glad we chose to come to Arizona to school. We would have loved being close to Chads family in Washington or mine in Nebraska, or even learned how to be city folk in New York or San Francisco – but I really feel like Arizona was meant for us. We love it here & Chads school is so amazing. I’m so thankful he is spending 4 years at a school that he loves instead of at a different school that he didn’t like as much.
There was a huge slide & Chad took Presley down it once. She loved the slide until the water splashed up in her face. Then PANIC.

We try to get her in the water every week & she has gotten so much better in the tub. She used to throw fits & they would be quick baths, but now it’s so hard to get her out of the bathtub! Booyah for our growing water baby!

Parenting. In GIFS.

Becoming a parent has been quiet the awakening for muah. I assumed it wouldn’t be all cute bows and creating matching outfits. But holy cow is it something else. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the entire world – but I figured I should let those without a kid in on the secrets. Here…
