Mom's stay

She lives in Utah and I miss her very much so we flew her out for her 60th b-day on July 7, and don't worry, she doesn't mind if you know. We were all singing Happy Birthday to her here and she was singing right along.

We always make frycakes when she's here. They're these wonderful donut things with frosting that came from my great-grandmothers recipe. Zoe got her first taste of homemade maple frosting and decided it was more fun to share with Madison.

She is eating all kinds of different foods now that her adnoids are not blocking the way. She actually sleeps totally silent to which is new to all of us.

Nana taught her all kinds of new things. It was so good to have her here. I miss her not only for myself but for my daughters too. They need to see their Nana more often that 2 or 3 times a year! ( hint hint )

That's my crazy husband doing the cowabunga off the diving board in the back.

It has been raining a lot the past few weeks and we drove to Rex to see an old Mill that Steve remembered from 5 or 6 years ago. The river was bigger than normal and it was super loud.

We miss you Nana!!
