good for the soul

A couple of weeks ago, the kids and I spent a week at Nana and Papa's while Kass was in Houston for a training class.  I find that although it can sometimes be stressful to be away from home with a baby, it's always, always a good thing to get a break from our normal routine.  Kinda rereshing, in a way.  Especially when that break from the norm comes with the help of Nana and Papa.  It was so nice to sleep until the kids woke me.  Not have to rush anywhere.  Or cook anything.  Or do laundry.  Or worry with Kaden going to bed on time because he had school the next day.  There are things we get to experience while out in the country that we don't get here in the city.

Like watering the garden with Papa...

And checking cows.  EVERY.  SINGLE.  DAY.  It's his favorite thing to do.  

And helping Papa with his chores.  Even if it means {just} dragging a bag of trash.  It's always more fun at Papa's house.

And checking on Harvey, Papa's super duper old donkey.  At least once a day.  

And playing soccer.  In rubber boots.  With a volleyball.

And pretending that you're on Dancing With The Stars.

Even though this isn't the best picture, we got to see lots and lots of BlueBonnets.  

And some pretty awesome sunsets.

Although little chica wasn't feeling the best during our stay because she was battling an ear infection, she had fun too.  Bathing in the sink.

And just chillin'...  It's what she does best!

3 months

Our sweet Bailey Raye is already 3 months old.  I must admit that I have been terrible with taking pictures of this little beauty and keeping up with her month to month progress.  So, while big brother napped this afternoon, I got out the fancy camera and we had a quick little photo shoot.  She's full of smile and giggles ~ and a few rolls here and there too.  What can I say, I raise some healthy babies!   Lately, she had started {baby} talking ~ and a lot of it too!  Kass and I are in trouble if she talks as much as her big brother.  I am so in love with this little blue eyed chica.
