Alot has been going on lately here! I haven't had much time to update the blog!
Between trying to keep my house clean, keeping up with Alexei and having a busy summer i'm afraid the blog doesnt fit in there :)
so here is an update!
Nick and i went to see the midnight showing of Batman The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX. it was awesome and also nice to have a date night alone. My little sister slept over so that Alexei could sleep in her own bed :) thanks so much Madi!
We've seen the movie twice already and we're ready to go again!
My mom has been back and forth between Kanab and home. My grandparents are trying to move from Kanab up to northern utah soon to be around all of their kids. They're house needed some updating so my mom and dad have been going down to help do tile, paint and try to update their house so it will sale. after Madi stayed the night while Nick and I went to batman she stayed with me one of the nights my parents were in Kanab. We had such a good time. We watched Footloose and ate lots of treats and then the next day we went shopping at city creek!
For Marks birthday he had a Super hero/disney party! we had alot of fun!
We ate pizza and introduced our costumes, had a dance competition, played night games and stayed up way too late!
The next day was super hot outside so we decided to do some Slip N Slide Kickball! it was so fun to watch all of the kids and Nick and Mark have so much fun playing.
The kids had so much fun playing all day so nick and i decided we would let them come to our house to have another sleep over! they we're having so much fun...
The kids loved getting all of nicks light sabers out and playing with them. i am asked by Kache (liz's youngest) "when are we gonna play with the life sabers again?" every time i see him :)
We went to McDonalds at 1am so we had some food to eat while we watched super man. Each kid got something off of the dollar menu and we got some fries to share. :)
we have so much fun with the nieces and nephews on the Van Komen side.
Alexei has had quite the personality lately. She loves to watch Finding Nemo and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and play in the front room. Her favorite part of the day is when she gets to go outside and play hockey with dad. She loves walking down the ramp in our garage and walking straight to the hockey sticks. She's got a mind of her own! she hardly ever wants you to hold her! Shes starting to talk, She says "Mama" "Dada" (depending on if shes tired some times it (Dee Dee) "BaBa" "toodles" "hotdog" and a couple of other things :)
If you are over alot you'll know that Alexei LOVES to climb and hang on things. She is such a busy body.
Alexei loves to do forward rolls and balance on her toys. After about a month of this happening we decided we should put her in Gymnastics.
We enrolled Alexei in a Parent-Tot gymnastics class at Black Diamond Gym in Daybreak. Its quite a far drive but i wasnt too pleased with the gym in north ogden so i figured it would be a drive no matter what gym we put her in. My Aunt works at Black Diamond and she was so excited that Alexei was coming there.
Alexei loves the foam pits. Nick gets in them with her and throws her up and she lands in the pits. she loves it. she also loves to slide off of the mats into the pits.
Anywhere we are that has a trampoline alexei is constantly wanting to be on it. She loved having Nick bounce her and shes learning the concept to bounce herself.
Lex loves hanging on the bar. she thought it was so cool.
At the end of class the teacher does bubbles and stamp time. Alexei LOVES chasing after the bubbles and she loves getting stamps on her feet. (probably cause momma never lets her draw or stamp on herself :))
Lex loves the tubes and the obsticle courses set up along the way
My little climber haha
Alexei and i had the opportunity to go camping together. Nick had to work (BOO) but we had fun anyways.
Alexei loves helping me. She has such a special little spirit. She is only 16 months and she's such a good little helper.
Alexei did really well with the drive down. we only stopped once to change her diaper!
Alexei and Brekin swinging with Hailey and Ryan
Alexei has found her love for salt and vinegar pringles (just like her momma)
Lex loves this chair. she loved all the outdoors time we had wile we were camping
This is the grandmas swinging their grand kids :)
We're trying out the toddler bed. Lex loves the fact that her bedding is minnie but she is still a bit unsure about the whole thing.
The first round of the summer league play offs was last night. The boys killed it 8-1. Nick should have gotten a shut out but theres always those floater goals that like to find their way in!
The championship game is monday so we'll see how they do! Good luck!
Well thats all for now. im sure you'll get another update in the next few months ;)
