Take me out to the ballgame...

Prior to Payton being born, Alexa and I would often go pick Kevin up from school. On our way, we'd drive past Louisville Slugger Field where the minor league baseball team, the Louisville Bats, play. Alexa, without fail, would say "baseball game mom" and "go Ona go" every time we'd pass by (Ona = Arizona, can you tell who her daddy loves???). Anyways, so we'd talk about the baseball games and one time I mentioned that we could go to a game this then every time after that, when we'd pass the field, she'd say something along the lines of "go to game this summer, mommy go, daddy go, lessa go, taypon go too". She couldn't leave anyone out!!
So today, we went to a baseball game with our friends, the Sonico's, who just moved to Kentucky. They have an adorable little girl, Riley, who Alexa enjoyed hanging out with. She loves to have friends! And we had a great time, despite the heat and humidity!
It's one, two, three strikes you're out at the ol' ball game!!!

Three little words...

make it all worthwhile. What 3 words you might ask?? Well, today I was helping Alexa go potty and was pulling up her shorts when she leaned into me and said "You best mommy". Those 3 words made my about melting my heart. Sure there are sleepless nights, temper tantrums, poopy diapers (for Payton, not Alexa), latenight feedings (Payton again), mounds of laundry, endless cleaning...and so on...but knowing Alexa thinks I'm the best mommy really does make it all worth it. I can't even express how much I love these two precious girls that my Heavenly Father has entrusted to me. Being their "best mommy" is by far the greatest job I could ever want or ask for!
I just hope she still thinks I'm her "best mommy" when she's 13!! :-)

A day at the zoo...

We love the zoo! Kevin has been on a 3 week break and so we've been enjoying having him around to do all the fun things. We ventured to the zoo this morning and had a great time. Alexa's favorite thing is the carousel and daddy wanted to go with her this time.
Our little monkey girl! She had so much fun looking at the animals today. And so did was the first time we've seen the gorillas in the outdoor part of their exhibit (and we've been to the zoo ALOT!!), so that was fun!
We're going to be really sad when Kevin/daddy has to go back to school! :-(
