Girl's Trip

Friday night I got to take Mckinley to the cabin for her first time! I went to the cabin every summer my entire life until I got married. Brandon isn't a big fan of the cabin so needless to say, we don't go anymore and Mckinley has never been. But my mom planned a little girl's night there. Brandon was so awesome and stayed home with the babies for me so we could go and enjoy. My mom asked if I wanted to bring Kallie but I thought that would be too hard (turns out there wouldn't have been room for her in the car anyway), so she stayed home.
We did all of the usual things, caught frogs from the frog pond, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for dinner (the food always tastes sooo much better up at the cabin), walked down to the stream, pancakes for breakfast, played games, stayed up late talking, and just had a blast!
 Mckinley and Ella had to sleep by each other of course. This is how I found them when I finally went to bed.
Mckinley woke up screaming in the night that there were dogs on her and to get them off. Ella and I switched places and I slept with Mckinley the rest of the night. She looked so cute with her usual awesome bedhead when she woke up.
All of us. Kristen brought Maverik and Holly was saying he shouldn't come because he's a boy so we brought one of Kallie's dresses for him to wear and Holly made him a headband out of duct tape.
Ella always wants me to do her hair like Mckinley's and she had Kristen make her a twinner shirt and she always wants to wear them together. It's so cute!

10 Months

Kallie and Tyler turned 10 months on July 27th. It didn't take long before I realized I wasn't going to get a good picture of the two of them sitting still.
Which is a pretty good indication of how life is with 10 month old twins. Crazy! They are so busy and into everything. We still love them to pieces and are having so much fun with them, but life is not very easy.
They are both doing lots of tricks including waving, clapping hands, spitting, bonking heads, sticking their tongue out, dancing, peek-a-boo, etc. I love this stage! And with two babies, it's twice as fun.
Kallie is starting to take steps, and Tyler cruises with a walker. They are a handful and it's hard to go anywhere so we mostly just stay home but that's okay. There's always next year, right? Or maybe it will be a few years before we can easily get out of the house. :)
