Short Lived

Got pulled over in Canmore going 120kms. The speed limit was 90, $177 fine... way to go Jason!

Turning Over a New Leaf...

Not me... Jason. Yes, Jason is going to make a very honest and dedicated attempt to NOT get anymore speeding, red light, and parking tickets. We've set a goal for him to go at least 1 WHOLE year.
It was a very humbling day for him when he walked out of the Calgary Courts Tower after paying off all of his fines so that he could renew his license and our car registration. Just under $1400.... Yep! Like I said, he's Turing over a new leaf.

Please note. I know some of you are reading this and are appalled at the type of driver you think my husband must be. Having a child has changed things and he is a very GOOD driver in my opinion, however just not very patient sometimes and when the roads aren't busy he like to give it a little more gas than needed, and he definitely likes to speed up on a yellow light, but aren't a lot of us guilty of that? He just pushes the limit a little too much. (there honey- I came to your defense on this... surprised? I'm am sort of. HA!)

Swimsuit Shoot

Mind you she is wearing two diapers under all her bathing suits. One normal one and a swim one over top. Hence the bulgy bottom....

I'm sorry but I HAD to do this, there isn't much cuter than a pleasantly plump baby girl in cute little swimsuits... But when I say "I'm sorry" I apologizing to Brooklynn for when she's old enough to understand and not appreciate YET why her mom would post such photos. I just had too much fun dressing her up each day :)

Summer Catch Up and Picture Overload

I am a little behind with my blogging that's for sure. I love when I can keep on top of it because when time passes for a while and a lot of things have happened in our busy lives I feel overwhelmed with my next post. I know I've started other posts off with the same spiel, so here we go again...
Our family is doing great and really enjoying the summer thus far. We recently returned from our first summer getaway which was out in Shuswap, there we celebrated a Happy Canada Day and Independence Day. It was our first little road trip/ vacation with Brooklynn too. Not to brag here but she is such a dream baby! She did so well on the long drives and with her sleeping and feeding schedules. I'm a proud mom that's for sure. Let's hope I haven't jinxed anything for our next trip out there at the end of the month (finger's crossed).
Turns out I haven't forgotten how to wake board either. I thought I would be worst off since I'm still a little out of shape from being prego and all, but I was actually better this year than previous years.
On Monday I celebrated my birthday. Jason organized a get together with some friends and family at his parents house for a BBQ and cake. I am now 25... Yep quarter of a century and I can't believe how quick these years fly by! Sometimes it really feels like it was only yesterday that I moved out to Calgary just before my 21st birthday, and here I am over four years later and I am married, have a mortgage, and a baby who's almost 3 months old. I can't wait to see what the next four years will bring :)
Last but not least I have to make a note at how special of a Birthday it really was. Jason managed to get me tickets to fly home at the end of July to see my family. Brooklynn and I will be there for almost 2 whole weeks. I am so excited and I know they are thrilled to finally see her again. It is so hard to be far a part from them, especially now with a child. I will miss Jason so much but I am so grateful at the same time. I don't know who he'll manage being away from his little girl that long. I haven't even been away from him longer than a couple days at a time, and that rarely happens. It will be interesting to see how we manage, or if we can!

She was such an angel the WHOLE way and it's a five hour drive. I'm not even this well behaved!
First time in a life jacket, and ready to go on her first boat ride. She looks like a hot-dog in a bun.

Just chill'n with her daddy

Just one of her many daytime snoozes. I have to laugh every time she falls asleep in the Bumbo but then I feel bad because that can't be too comfortable at all.

Playtime with her cousin, Treyden. He was only 3 weeks old last year out at the cabin. They grow up soo fast!

Grandpa Lee (Murray) was nice to lend his hat on this sunny day.

Look at all her cousins!

Happy Canada Day!

Enjoying some time on the dock in the evening while Brooklynn takes one of her many snoozes.

My pathetic excuse for getting some "air" on the wake...

Jason's "air"....


Ha! While we were at Jay's parent's house Charlotte and Brooklynn needed a little snooze before bedtime. They had there first sleepover. We decided to call it a napover though. Aww Bff!

Brooklynn with 2 of her fav Aunties.

Brooklynn's facial expressions kill me sometimes. I love my family :)

When Jason and I came home from the celebrations at his parent's house we discovered that while we were out someone had mysteriously filled out home with balloons, it looked so cool.

My 25 balloons. Thanks Jenny!.

Look at this BIG girl!
