Uncle Ray…Rescue Ranger!!

So this summer some of our friends, the Masons, came to visit!  We had a great time with them while they were here!  Emmy and Eldon are just a few months apart and always get along great!  The Mason’s daughter Lily is a doll too! While they were here we hung out, went hiking and went to the duck pond.  I forgot a hat for Kaylee on the hike so she had to wear a swim diaper on her head!  I wish I had the picture!  It was super fun to see them!

Anyway, you may be thinking…what does this all have to do with Uncle Ray!  Well…when we went to the duck pond we had a great time throwing bread pieces to the birds.  Then when we ran out of bread so Eldon threw my car keys into the middle of the pond!  He has a pretty good arm too 🙂  Anyway, as I started calling around about Honda keys I found out that it was going to be like 100 dollars to replace since they put a chip in it to sync it to your car…blah blah blah… So Ray took a rake down to the pond and Emmy showed him where to comb for it!  AND he had to wade into the pond like 6 inches up his leg!  So that is what makes him a hero right there because I wasn’t going in after them!  Anyway, after only like 5 minutes he had a crowd accumulated to watch him and after only 10 minutes he pulled up the keys!

He took them home and cleaned them using rubbing alcohol and the remote still works!  I couldn’t believe it!

Here is Ray at Ruby K’s with the van key!  We took him out to eat there as a reward!  I even made him pose for this picture so I could do a blog post about it!  Thanks Uncle Ray!

Park Pics

I take about a billion pictures every time we go to the park so I thought I’d combine some of my best pictures and make a post!  I put away the girls shorts and things and unpacked their winter clothes so I needed a summer-ish post!  (funny side note:  I just barely put away Emmy’s 12 month clothes like 3 months ago when she outgrew them…and I just got them back out for Kaylee who already needs them!!)

Here’s Daddy helping Emmy with her brand new bike!!  Her legs are finally long enough to move the pedal in a full circle!  Good job Emeline!

Kaylee loves the tunnels at the park!  She can already navigate them all by herself!  They are one of Emmy’s favorite things too!

This picture took about 3 trips to the park to take!! They would both always look out the holes but never for more than about 5 seconds!  So I had to be ready and fast with the camera!  And I never was…but I finally got it with the help of my mom!

What a cutie pie!

Emmy is so proud that she can go up the ladders and down the slides all by herself!  A few months ago a little girl kept pushing Emmy from behind and telling her she was going to slow on the slides!  Emmy was kind of upset…but the next time we went to the park she told me to time her!  And she would go up the ladder and down the slide over and over again and make me count!  She is one determined little girl!  Good job Emeline!

Here she is coming down the big slide!

I love this face!

Kaylee is definitely our little Maggie Simpson!  She always has a pacifier when she’s on the go!

Here is Emmy on the “Big Girl” swings.  As she always reminds us, “I am getting so BIG!”
