shooting and more ettie

A few weeks ago we went shooting out in the middle of no where. Devin has a membership to this shooting range but it's way out east in the plains.  Basically in Kansas. K not really, but it was pretty far. 
We drove east for 30 minutes to this tiny town and then drove north for a while and then got on a dirt rode and drove on that for a good 20 minutes and then finally got to the entrance and kept driving for a few more minutes. Holy moly. 

But it was so pretty and quiet out there! (well besides the gun shots.... hahaha just realized how dumb that sounds.)






Ettie wasn't really digging the ear muffs. But we gotta protect those little ears!


Awww another random ettie picture. Love that morning face.

She's very helpful.... 

See what I mean?
And she's really good at looking innocent.



The first week of june I had a piano recital for all my adorable students! They all played duets (which turns out it's soooo hard when you're a kid!). But they did so good! I am really proud of them and their hard work.


She loves her dad.


and her mom too..

Mom and sis visit Denver!

Babies Babies Babies!
A couple of weeks ago my mom and sister and niece came to visit! It was so much fun and it was great to get the cousins together.

first stop: noodles n company.


They love playing with Grandma Michelle! She's too fun!

We went swimming and to the splash pad!


We tried out one of those giant cart deals at Target.

Waiting patiently outside of snooze!


what can i say? she takes after me and my love for pancakes!



Ettie was perfectly happy pushing Livy around in her car.



Sisters.


More food ;) Denver Biscuit Company for the most amazing biscuit cinnamon roll and breakfast sandwiches!


Face timing with grandpa blaine!



Bubbles at the aquarium!


Matching dresses from Grandma's trip to hawaii!


We really struggled with our attempted photo shoot.. 

After the babies go to bed all hell breaks loose.


We watched eat, pray, love, so i felt motivated to do some meditation.


more breakfast....
This time at Jelly! they have really good...um... jelly. and really good mini donuts.


Book babies! at the library!




Voo doo donuts! The stars aligned and there was a parking spot right out front and only a 5 minute line. My mom got mad at me when i ordered a donut called "the dirty b-word". Sorry ma!


Kissing cousins!

Salt Lake City Visit


Last week, Ettie and I went to Utah! Devin was doing a rotation in Fort Collins and was gone for a month so we tried to find lots of things to fill our time... like traveling.

Ettie was so excited when she saw my mom at the airport! She had the cutest surprised face and then the biggest smile. 

We spent the week checking off my to do list.... aka my list of places i wanted to eat. 
Zupas: 3 times
Kneaders
Rumbi island grill
Cafe Rio
In N Out
Cheesecake Factory
The Dodo
Hokulia (for shave ice)

Ettie was really excited about her balloon at Dan's... as you can see.

She's in a stair climbing phase and she's very lucky to have a grandpa that will let her go up and down the stairs over and over. (I get too bored after a couple of times.) She loved climbing their stone steps in the backyard.


Ettie approves of the desserts at Kneaders.


and the chocolate covered strawberries at Zupas. Lucky girl!



She played and played with all of the fun toys at her grandparents'!




Love this pose.



waiting to be seated. She looks like she's in trouble.

never ending attention!


And then Devin came for the weekend! Woot Woot!



And Devin's dad came into town for Father's day!





I just love all of these. Sorry for the picture overload!



How we roll.

Safety First!
