May 2015 - Weather finally getting nice!

May was a nice month.  Finally free for sure from the office space - and tax season is over as well.  Life was back to normal - except we had a baby.  Camilla turned 6 months in May.  We also went to dolphin beach and the pool.  Swim team started as well for Josh.  At this point I was wondering to myself - where did the last 6 months go?  It was such a blur!  Now was the time to try to get Camilla to nap better and sleep better over night!

Also - we traveled to Kentucky in May to see Brad graduate from DO school.  We missed Mother's Day with the family - but felt it was important to be there for our friend - especially since he was going to be moving to Utah a week later to start his residency...he got matched on his first choice - and he doesn't give himself enough credit for that one smart boy!

Here are some shots from the month!

Camilla enjoying her owl sippy straw

How can you resist her?

I pulled out my fancy camera for her 6 month shot - this was was my favorite - and taken on my phone...

Ella and Josh playing in Kentucky

I had to sneak out there and take some shots!

Brad in line, waiting for his diploma

The graduation ceremony tired her out!

Playing with one of Josh's favorite old toys

Round two of attempting to grow a garden - the beginnings

I think I came home from a run and Patric had her sleeping in our bed.

We went to visit Ian and Natasha and enjoy their lake.

Look at those chunky thighs!

Camilla's first time in Old Town Alexandria.  We needed to drop off documents to one of our clients.

Looking fabulous at Dolphin Beach

Josh showing Camilla the ropes

An intense game of Battleship

First few practices of the swim season - Camilla hanging out with Coach Janie.

No - we did not give her a piece of shrimp...though I am sure she would have enjoyed it.

Memorial Day!  YAY!

These are the shots from my fancy camera for her 6 month photos

April 2015 - Josh's baptism - a visit from a friend

April - the final countdown for tax season - the final countdown from being in a miserable office setting!  April was a great month!!

We had Easter with the family.  I have a funny video from the Easter Egg Hunt.  Josh got baptized and he also had Spring Break.  I wasn't able to spend much time with him during Spring Break - something I will be fixing for the 2016 tax season.

Also - Patric's friend Rickard came to visit - and we took him to KingsDominion.  He wasn't feeling well on the last ride - but Patric made him do the ride anyway - and well -- he survived but not without passing out first.  I was NOT going to go on that ride - too scary!

I took more videos then pictures this month - but enjoy none the less!

We went to Megan's house to decorate eggs.  Had to get a shot of Sage and Josh together.

Decorating eggs

Easter morning - Josh and Camilla with their Swedish Easter Eggs

She thought she was actually going to eat that candy...

Celebrating Easter at David and Teri's house.  I wanted a good picture with both of my kids but Josh wouldn't cooperate.


Rickard and Martha- Tyra wasn't interested in getting in the picture.

Camilla got to nap while we had fun at Kingsdominion

Josh hanging with Snoopy

Patric trying to steal Snoopy's cookies

We drove up to Md to get scriptures for Josh - so we stopped in at the temple on a beautiful day.

Josh's baptism day finally arrived!  Camilla giving big brother a big kiss

Josh with Everett, Ella and Emma

That sly kid - trying to hold hands with Ella

A random picture of Camilla in a swing

Our family on Josh's special day!

Camilla trying solids - I quickly switched to something else because it seemed rice wasn't sitting well with her.

Another shot of Camilla in my favorite outfit.  She is so beautiful!
The fun Easter Egg Hunt at David and Teri's house

March 2015 - Our anniversary, Josh's birthday and an Easter Egg Hunt!

March is an exciting month in our house - Patric and my anniversary is March 6 and Josh's birthday is March 14.  We celebrated our 11th anniversary - but I don't recall actually going anywhere or even doing anything special...I don't let anyone watch my babies when they are young - plus Camilla refused a bottle so I couldn't go far from her anyway - so we just stayed home.  We didn't have a birthday party for Josh either this year - we were going to have a family party for his baptism in April.  He chose to wait until April because his friend Ella could come if it was then - Kami (Ella's mom) was due to have her baby in March - so we asked Josh what he wanted to do.  He chose to wait for his friend Ella to be able to come.  We got a nice surprise and the entire family was able to come.  Kami is super woman!!

March was busy with work still - we were sharing office space with a very difficult person to deal with - and I knew, I couldn't stand to be in an office with him much longer.  Thankfully Eric was able to sort all of that out in April and we parted ways with a person who made it his mission in life to try to destroy our business.  I am happy to be free from him!  It made tax season very uncomfortable for me and many times I was ready to just walk away.

Anyway - here are some fun pictures from the month!

My cute girl found her thumb.  She didn't like using it much though.

Another snow storm - in March...

I had a picture of Josh in this onesie - so I had to put Camilla in it.

This must have been early March because I dyed my hair mid March to brown.  I loved this outfit - probably just wanted to put her in it to see what it looked like.

We were out on a walk and Patric spotted an owl in the trees not far from our house!  It was magical!

Just another day at the office.

Josh reading to Camilla

This outfit was awesome!  She was just relaxing.

We dusted off some of Josh's old toys now that Camilla was a bit older - 4 months in March.

Josh's birthday!

Yay for toys!

Another shot on his birthday - this time with clothes on and not PJs

Success - sleeping in her crib!

Josh's third grade had a cute musical night of what they learned.

Enjoying the exersaucer

Camilla was admiring her fun wall in her bedroom

We bought this outfit for Easter.  I put her in it often

I took this picture with my phone - and then I changed it to black and white - I thought it turned out great

I believe I took this right after Camilla burped so Patric and Josh are laughing at that - Camilla doesn't know what is so funny

There is my brown hair!

Josh with the Easter bunny at Dolphin Beach.  It was SOOOOO cold!

Josh waiting to get the eggs

I mean - it was FREEZING!  No shots of Camilla - she was tucked under the blanket

All the kids ready to get some eggs

That is it for March!
