People, parks, and polka-dot pants

I got these little outfits for the girls at Kohl’s!  Where else!  Anyway, the whole Relief Society presidency was released so we were going to lunch with the rest of the presidency.  (So quick update…yes I was released a few weeks ago as Enrichment counselor and now I’m assistant ward camp leader and the Young Women’s Secretary!  Both of which I’m super super excited about!!) Anyway, Emmy was really excited to go to lunch with “May Anne” (Marianne Tonks) so she didn’t really want to sit for pictures! But here are the few shots I got!

Kaylee working on some crawling!! She is getting really close! She is already army crawling with a lot of speed!

The one shot I managed to get of both the girls in their little polka dot pants!

“Naturally Sweet”- very appropriate shirt!

“Free as a bird”- Pretty much sums up Emmy!

Later that day I decided to take the girls to the park to try out my new double stroller!  Ta-Da! I got this at the Little Forest Resale for 30 bucks!! It’s a “Euro-Graco” which I’ve never heard of…but I think it makes me more cultured or something!  Anyway, I really love it and although it might not be as fancy as some other double strollers it gets the job done! And for you Seinfeld fans out there “It’s European!!!”

Here’s miss Kaylee in her comfy seat!  She loved looking forward for a change!

And Emmy thinks the double stoller is the greatest thing ever!  She loves riding around with Kaylee!

It was really bright at Urban park!  Here is Emmy in the swings trying her best to smile and look at the camera!

After Urban we walked over to Mountain School.  This was our first time going and Emmy loved it!!! This playground was just her size and she could do it “all by herself” which she made sure to tell me if I walked to close to her while she was doing it! 🙂 She is going to do the early start pre-school program through Barranca but if we still live here in two years Emmy will go to Kindergarten at Mountain!

I think this pick is funny because she is wearing her Free as a bird shirt but she looks like a jail bird!

Poor Emmy…always in my shadow!  Just kidding!  She leaves me and Alex in the dust on a regular basis!


We stayed at mountain so long it was time for Daddy to come home so we told him to meet us at the park! Here is Emmy showing dad around the playground!

And finally Kaylee gets her turn to join the fun!  She loves riding down slides just like Emmy!  They are both pretty fearless so it will be interesting when I have to chase them BOTH around the playground in opposite directions!  Maybe then I will finally shed those extra pregnancy lbs!!

  1. FUN!!!!! Thanks for the update! Their outfits are adorable. And I LOVE your stroller (I love its PRICE!) … very nice! Both girls are so adorable. Love Emmy’s cute smile and I can’t BELIEVE Kaylee is already CRAWLING!! Wow!

  2. Hi Julia!

    Wow! You were released! You are going to be so awesome in Young Women’s, Hurray! I am totally excited for you. The girls are so cute and getting so big! I love to see all of their matching outfits. you are an awesome Mom! Miss you guys tons! Wish we could be there playing at the park with you…

  3. I totally commented and must not have hit the submit button because it never showed up:(. Gah! I feel like I’m trying to move so fast sometimes that I mess up all the time.

    Anyway, I love the little polka dot pants. Very cute! How old is Kaylee now? I can’t believe she is already moving! (Also: Like Alex, I really like the pic in your last post with her laughing at Emmy.)

    I can’t wait to go to parks with you this summer to let the kids play! I remember Mountain school having a really fun playground. It’ll be fun to take the kids there.

    I bet Eldon will love to see Emmy again. It takes him a little bit to get used to new people. He has really gotten into having friends though and is fiercely loyal once he gets to know someone.

  4. It’s just fine. No problem. 🙂

    Also, hey Julia, I was going to say that we are leaving pretty soon to head to UT (2 wks) and then to Los Alamos and I was wondering if there are still any ward playgroups and when/where they are at. I was also wondering what time story time is at the library and if there is anything else fun you know about for little kids to do in Los Alamos. You can email me at Thanks so much! Hope you guys are doing well and that Alex is enjoying “being graduated!” Yay!
