Random June fun

We are constantly amazed at what loving and low-key kitties we adopted!  They let the girls do pretty much anything to them and are the best snugglers ever!

And Pup-pup is still the greatest dog for the girls to climb all over!

Karis made these cute lists in her Sunday school class for the men in her life:

Karlie's first lost tooth!

Karlie lost her first tooth and not only is she adorable, but she cracked us up with this note that she left us!  We never did the tooth fairy with Karis.  I think we celebrated with ice cream or something instead.  Karlie has been going to Kindergarten 2 days a week so she heard about all the goodies her friends were getting from the tooth fairy.  So she wrote us this note:

Happy Father's Day

For Father's Day this year, we got Daddy a "Super Dad!" T-shirt and the girls sang him a funny song I wrote to the tune of one of their favorite songs, "For The First Time in Forever." (lyrics below:)  The girls really had a blast practicing and performing the song for him!

"Best Dad In The World" Frozen Parody
Karis: It's my favorite day and I'll tell you why:
Karlie: We get to celebrate our favorite guy!
Abbi: He's the one I love more than anyone in the world!

Karis:  He works so hard all day long,
And then comes home and fixes all that's wrong;
He can always put a smile on my face!

Karlie: As soon as I see him standing there,
I let out a scream and run for the stairs!
I want to be the first to get a hug!

Abbi:  He gives us lots of tickles,
And chases us through the house,
Laughing as we squeal and run away

All:  For he's the best Dad in the world,
We think he's super Dad!
He can always make us smile,
Whenever we are sad
And he'll never fully understand
How much he means to us!
For he's the best dad in the world,
Oh Daddy I love you!

Lindsay came back to visit!

 Oh I can't tell you how much we love this girl!  My girls ask me all year long when they are going to see Lindsay again and we always have so much fun when she comes to visit each summer!

The girls were excited to make her a cookie cake since she graduated from high school.  We are so proud of your hard work and the awesome young lady you have become, Lindsay!

My girls' hair always looks cuter when Lindsay is around!

Our pool is so awesome!  We took Lindsay one evening and pretty much ha it to ourselves :)

Best friends chatting around the pool :)

We love our Lindsay!

Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to come to visit us!

Daddy-Daughter Date at Chick Fil-A!

When I got an e-mail from CFA inviting us to their Daddy-daughter date night, I responded immediately.  This was something my girls did not want to miss!  Sure enough, they had the most exciting night of their lives!  In addition to their favorite food and a date with their favorite person in the world, they enjoyed a manicure, a make-over, a photo-shoot with their beloved Elsa, and a fun limo ride!

Hiking to the Cascades

The girls had been asking to go on a real hike, so we decided to take them on one of our favorites:  The Cascades!  It honestly was a little tough for our 2-year old, but we brought a carrier and took turns carrying her.  Our four year old needed a good bit of help, also.  (We found out later there is an easier route we should have taken but the one we took was more like real hiking, which our older girls wanted!)  We were ever so proud of Karis and Karlie because they never complained one bit!  My legs were burning like crazy and I wanted to stop but they kept us going happily!  And it was totally worth it once we got to the beautiful waterfall!
