Fun in the Sun!

This last week has been pretty fun! Jake's Grandma was in town for a week and so we went and had some fun. She, Mary and I went to Ikea, The Container Store and the Mall. It was really fun just looking and talking. Mary loved being out with Grandma Barton and was a really good sport about everything. Then on Friday we went to a play called Rocket Fizz. It's a store that has over 400 kinds of candy and over 100 (or something like that) different kinds of soda. So we decided it would be fun to go downtown in Denver on a FRIDAY night...I'm really not sure what we were thinking. So an hour and a half later we make it to the store. Which was good because Mary just about had had it with the car seat. It was a cool store, not what I expected - it was kind of small, but still fun to go into. We bought some really good pop there - Blood Orange soda was my favorite! It was super yummy! Even Mary liked some of the pop we got...

Ha ha ha! Don't worry it was empty.

Jake told his brother to get a Sweet Corn soda. Jake lied to him and told him it was really good. He got home and just about threw-up! It was pretty funny! We all had a pretty good time - even Mary.

 This was on the way there, she was happy and eating in the car. She received a lot of compliments on how cute she looked. I agreed with all of them! She looks so big with pigtails!

I thought this was an awesome picture of her. This is what happens to her hair the day after pigtails!

Jake was playing music for her on his phone and she loved it!!!

He would play piano music and she would stop doing whatever she was doing and be completely mesmerized by it. I hope she continues to like music!

Having fun!

And more fun! Her hair is a mess....again!

On Saturday Jake and I (yes, even me) went out and did A LOT of yard work. This yard needs a lot of help!!! So we raked, and raked and raked. Then mowed, fertilized, set the sprinklers, etc. It was a lot to do. We filled about 8-10 garbage bags full of dead grass and leafs and stuff. It was a mess. We're working on bring it back to life.

We went out to our backyard to play for the first time. She had a good time!

I'm trying to brainwash her into liking frisbee far, so good! ;)

And last, but not least! Drum roll please!!!!!!!!!! Jake got a grill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!! Barbecuing here we come!!! I'm so excited to grill this summer. We're going to have a good time! Well, that's about it for us. Hope you have having a great start to your summer!!!

Mary looks super cute with the pig tails! We used some soap that was blood orange flavored and I couldn't stop smelling it! Austin even tasted it, then tricked Isabelle into tasting it because it smelled so good!
