So the past couple weeks I have gone to Sonic pretty much EVERYDAY it seems like to get a drink or slush. I am totally addicted. I love sonic, especially during the summer and especially during happy hour when their drinks are half off. Plus, their crushed ice is fabulous! My favorite drinks at the moment are....

*Cherry limeade
*Dr. Pepper w/vanilla
*Ocean Water
*Lemon berry Slush

What are your favorite drink creations or treats at Sonic? Any good ones I need to try out?!

Fishing Trip

It's Josh's birthday tomorrow so for his "birthday weekend" all he wanted to do was go fishing. So fishing it was! We headed up to Strawberry Lake a few hours before dark and fished from the shore. We could not keep Alli away from the water, she was so muddy and soaking wet by the time we left. But the cold water didn't seem to phase her one bit! It was so beautiful and green up there! Josh caught one huge rainbow trout but it ended up getting away =( Oh well, we still had fun.

Lil' Cookie Monster...

Alli loves helping me make cookies - it's always a favorite Sunday activity. There is just nothing better than warm chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk!

This is her newest face..puckering up her lips when she's eating something. I don't know where she learns this stuff, but she cracks me up every time she does this funny little face!

Feeding Ducks

There is a pond in our neighborhood that has a few ducks in it, so today I took Alli to feed them. She really loved watching them swim over to us and eat an entire half loaf of bread. I have tons of pictures I know, there were just too many cute ones! Here's a few of them....

She was pretty intrigued while they were first swimming over to us!

This one actually came out of the water. I was a little scared but don't worry it didn't attack us!

Stop taking pictures already Mom!

Josh's Turkey

Josh had a turkey tag down in Cedar over Easter weekend. He didn't' get one that weekend but the following weekend he did. He said he shot it like 5 times running after it like an Indian! We all know he loves to hunt just about anything, so of course he had a fun time. Way to go babe!

WARNING: Gros Pictures

So no this is NOT chocolate! Earlier today Josh went and checked on Alli and this is what he found!!! POOP EVERYWHERE IN HER CRIB...ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! SO GROS!! I couldn't help but laugh though when I saw it. I have seen other horror pictures like this on other people's blogs so I knew my day would most likely be coming. I just hope it doesn't happen again. I think she pulled her diaper off because she only had a t-shirt and diaper on with no pants. So from now on I will try to always make sure she has bottoms on! Anyway, it is now all cleaned up and eveything is in the wash so I think we'll survive. Oh the joys of toddlers!

Here's the list I had and we got all of it checked off! Thanks Mom, you are the best. Also, thanks to Josh for watching Alli all day while we cleaned our fannies off!

* Washed all blinds and windows
* Washed or dusted all curtains
* Washed most of the walls
* Deep cleaned showers, bathrooms & floors
* Cleaned and organized under kitchen sink
* Washed all bathroom rugs
* Organized shoe and coat closet
* Vacuumed master bed and mattress, and flipped mattress (that was quite the task!)
* Changed all sheets
* Dusted all fans
* Cleaned off all appliances
* Did about 8 loads of laundry in the process and still going!

Aw, it feels so nice to have a clean house and it looks great! It also felt great to have a nice long hot shower, I was seriously sweating and out of breath!
