It's Raining, It's Pouring.....

"It's raining, is pouring, the old man is snoring....."





Today we had a MASSIVE rain storm, pouring is a little bit of an understatement.  It literately came down in buckets and at  an angle.  The rain was coming down so hard and fast that we couldn't even see out our front window.  Andy had to run out into the rain to peg down the trampoline, it was moving and rocking back and forth.  We thought for sure it was going to tip over, but I think the pegs helped a little bit.  Andy also had to sweep some of the water off of our back patio.  We had a little bit of a river flowing back there.  This weather was totally crazy, but Calleigh a great time, she got to splash in the water and help dad sweep the water away from the door.

Another Busy, Busy Friday

We had another busy Friday.  Our Fridays, used to be very low key, but now for the summer they seem to be very busy.  We started the day off with our art class.  Today we got to blow bubbles and make bubble paintings.  It was really neat, Calleigh enjoyed blowing the bubbles and making a very cool looking picture.

We then had to pick Aidan up from Grandma Barb's and off to swimming we went.  We had swimming today for a make up for missing July 4th.  It was our last day of this session.  Calleigh has come a long way since her first session of swim lessons.  She is now floating on her back all by herself and swimming back to the wall.  We still need to work on jumping into the water and swimming back to the wall without any assistance.  But I am sure with this next go around of swim lessons she will get it down pat with no problem.

After swimming we had a little down time at home, we had lunch and played, while Aidan had a very short nap.  We talked to Grandma Cathy on Skype, so that was exciting.  She always loves to use some short of technology.  After talking to Grandma Calleigh and I decided to make some no bake cookies.  She loved to mix all the ingredients together and of course test some of it as well.

We then got to go ice skating. She skating while I gave and lesson and got to skate with Brianna.  She skated for an hour and loved every minute of it, she didn't want to get off, by we had to because the Zamboni was coming out.

Calleigh got to also go to the wine store with her dad.  She loves to go out with her dad.  She was excited like always to go with her dad.  They came home with a handful of different beers for Andy NOT Calleigh.


It was another busy busy Friday here at the Streit house.  Looking forward to the next couple of weeks with more swimming and art classes!!!!

Happy 4th of July

Well we had a pretty great day.  We did a little work, and play.  It was raining today, so we had a little fun outside for a change. It has been so hot here, we welcomed the rain and cooler weather.  Calleigh got to run through the rain in her rain boots and rod her bike through it too.  She thought it was pretty cool. 

 While Calleigh and Dad were playing outside, I was busy sewing up a storm.  Thanks to Pintrest, I found a blog, that showed me how to sew a car seat ice pack.  Yes, you heard me right, its an ice pack for the car seat.  It gets so hot in the summer in our cars, that the car seats are so hot for our little ones.  This year has been the first year that Calleigh has really started to complain about it, so I did a little research, and found a lady who made them, however, I couldn't think about spending $40 for one, when I could make one myself.  So I found a blog of a lady who made her's and gave step by step directions with pictures (even better)  Check it out: http://eighteen25.blogspot.com/2010/07/my-carseat-is-cooler-than-yours.html
Here is the outcome of my two that I made.  I am planning to make two more for the grandma's cars.  And the best part was that it only cost me $30 to make four of them.

  
We celebrated the 4th of July over at my in-laws house.  We had so much fun, we swam, ate, and the "big" boys played with some fire works.  Calleigh was a bit better this year, she has figured out to just cover her ears when the big "boom" goes off. She even was into throwing some poppers.  We had a great day spending it with family.

Happy Anniversary


Well today was our four year wedding anniversary.  How time really does go by quickly when you are having fun.  We are truly blessed to have wonderful family, and friends that were able to join us on that very 'warm' day four years ago today.  We are blessed to have two beautiful and healthy kids. 
We didn't do much today, Andy was at work and I was home with the kids.  We did manage to go out for dinner at the Olive Garden.  We will actually celebrate our anniversary with a night away in a few weeks at the Pointe South Mountain Resort.  We look forward to that in a few weeks.  Happy Anniversary to my wonderful, caring, loving husband.  I couldn't think of a better person to go through our journey of life together.  Happy Anniversary darling, and many more to come.  Love you always

Another day...

Well we have been very busy the last couple of days, going to swimming and hanging out with friends.  Calleigh is doing so great at swimming, she is even swimming under the water all by herself.  Its amazing how fast they really do learn.  Aidan is crawling all over the place and pulling himself up onto everything that he possibly can. 



Calleigh I think has finally figured out that Aidan is an actual human being and she can actually play with him.  Tonight Calleigh was on the floor with all her pretend food, and Aidan was sitting right in there with her.  Calleigh gave him his own plate and food.  He just sat there and chewed on what he could, and Calleigh was thrilled that she could play with her little brother.

Another Milestone


Look at that face, so proud of
himself
Today Aidan had another milestone.  He started pulling himself up on all the furniture and his toys.  He was so proud of himself when he did it.  He did manage to take a few tumbles to the ground when trying to pull himself up onto "moving" toys.  Let the fun begin, now its only a matter of time before he starts to walk.  Look out.....

Father's Day




All the dads and kids
Well today was Father's day.  I think Andy had a great day.  Calleigh and I made breakfast this morning, eggs, bacon, and pancakes.  It was very delicious.  We went to church, and went to my parents house for lunch.  The kids ended up having a little nap, so Andy and I went to the grocery store to get our groceries for the week.  Andy's parents invited us over for a swim and dinner, so we went over there when the kids got up from their naps.  It was a great day!!!  I am very thankful for my dad as he as always done so much for us kids.  I am thankful for my wonderful husband who is loving, caring and a wonderful dad to his two beautiful kids.  Happy Father's day!!!
