Sprinkler Fun

The other night, while Justin and I were watering the flowers, Tayson came running out of the garage with his Elmo sprinkler. We had never used it before so I'm not really sure how he knew that it had something to do with the hose that we were using but hey...this boy is constantly amazing me by how much he already knows!!

So, we decided that we would hook up the sprinkler and see what he thought. I honestly thought he would just stand back and watch. I guess I should've known better than that!!

He's a sprinkler pro!! He loves anything that has to do with water, he wasn't scared to go right up to it and stick his face right in the water!

This weekend we went to Branson with The Norris'. We had such a good time!! When we got there Friday night, we went down to the Branson Landing and ate at Joe's Crab Shack! This was the first time I had ever seen the Landing and I was totally impressed. It is so nice and modern, a total face lift for dear ole' Branson!! They were having a really neat water/fire show while we were down there.

Saturday morning we got up and hit the outlet mall for a little while. I didn't know that Branson had a Gymboree Outlet! We will definitely be going back more often now! After shopping, we went back to the hotel and got ready and headed to White Water! It was so hot outside but the weather was awesome and Tayson and Colin loved being in the water.

I was trying to take a picture but Tayson wasn't having any of it!!

Tayson pretending to take a nap!

Ummmm....guys...could someone please tell my dad that my arm is stuck in here!!

All day, we heard "NO, NO BABY!!!" Colin calls Tayson "baby", it is so funny to watch the two of them together. Here are some pictures of them playing and Colin feeding Tayson ice cream!

Saturday night we went and ate at a Mexican Resturant on the strip and then walked around for a little while and stopped to get ice cream!

Sunday morning we went to breakfast and then headed home. We met Justin's mom and dad at Chili's on our way back into town and had lunch with them for Father's Day. Then we all went home and took a 2 hour nap, we were tired!! Last night, we went over to my mom and dad's for dinner. I think that Justin had a great 2nd Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day to my dad too!! He is such an amazing dad to me, and Papa to Tayson! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Pool Time

Here are a few pictures of Tayson playing in his new pool. He loves it!!! I know that we will have a lot of fun days this summer with this little masterpiece!! The best part about it, if I put it on the back deck, part of it is covered so I don't have to go to all of the trouble putting the big canopy on it!

(Ignore the patio table on the deck stairs...those fur babies of mine will do anything to get up on the deck with us)

Trip to Toys R Us

Thursday night we were playing outside and Justin decided that Tayson needed some more toys to play with outside. This came as a total shock to me because I thought he had every outside toy that they made for a one year old! Anyways, Justin decided that a trip to Toys R Us was in order for us!! So...Friday night we went to Chick-fil-A and ate and then went across the parking lot to Toys R Us. I must admit that this isn't one of the best Toys R Us' in the world, but it is really one of the only toy stores in our area so we have to make due!

While we were there, we checked out all kinds of fun toys but most of them are too big for Tayson right now. He did find a small siamese kitty (that looked just like the one we have at home) and he carried it around the entire store. We left Toys R Us with a small pool, a gate to keep our dogs off of the deck so that Tayson can enjoy the pool, and a new floatie for Tayson to use in the big pool! I know what you are probably thinking...Tayson picked out that stuff?? No he didn't but mommy and daddy knew he would enjoy them! I think we probably could've left the store without anything and he would've been fine. He was just having fun running around and checking everything out!

Here are some pictures of our trip...

My sexy yard baby!

Tayson is such a great little lawn boy!! He loves to mow, water, pick flowers, rake mulch, etc. You name it...he'll do it!! Here are some pictures of him watering our yard,mowing Justin's parents yard (or sidewalk), and picking flowers at my mom and dad's!
