Summer wrap up

Bobbie recently found these pictures of Tessa on the 4th of July and I just love them so I had to post them.

She loves to swing!

This face is priceless

I love how Tessa looks like she's holding on for dear life

Here are a few pictures of Tessa with her Great Grandma and Grandpa Williams this last summer! She loved having them visit!

Oh sweet silly Tessa

Tessa has a little push cart that Natalie let her borrow and she seriously loves it! It has been her favorite toy for like 4 months now. A few months ago she became obsessed with carrying a Xbox control while pushing the cart! The control is pretty big with a long cord that makes it really difficult to push and carry at the same time. She always steps on the cord or drops the control, then has to stop and readjust until she can go again. For some reason Tessa is always determined to do it no matter what though. Sometimes she'll let me put the control in a little purse for her to walk with which makes it easier but usually she has to be the one to do it all on her own. I have no idea where she thought up this idea or why she's obsessed with the control, but she does not like to push the cart without it! I had to record this memory cause it just makes me laugh. Here are some pictures that might explain it better.

And she's off!

Balloon Festival 2009

Every August our family goes to Trapper's Ridge with the Rogers family for the Eden balloon festival. This year we went to the art festival, the lighting and launching of the balloons, hung out, played lots of poker, and discovered oh so good snowballs (a dessert). Like usual we had a blast! We just love hanging out with everyone, the Rogers are so much fun. We can't wait for next year. Here are some pictures from our cold, but fun weekend.

How awesome is this GIANT Energizer bunny!

These pictures are at the lighting of the balloons which is so cool because the light up all the hot air balloons in the dark and it's so pretty!

This August we went with Nate's family to Florida for his cousin's wedding. We had so much fun and didn't want to come home! We went for a week and pretty much just relaxed the whole time. The weather was perfect for the beach and pool. Tessa absolutely loved the ocean! She wanted to play in the wet sand and have the little waves come up by her the whole day. She went under twice but wanted right back in the action. She would crawl right into the ocean not realizing how deep it was getting and then get soaked. I can't wait until the next time we get to take her to a beach. The wedding was beautiful and so much fun as well. Here are A LOT of pictures to show what a good time we had...

The girls were very good and entertained with the DVD player on the way down even though we were traveling from basically 4:30 am to 4:00 pm! The way home was a little different story for us though. Being on a plane when Tessa is suppose to be sleeping, is not a good idea. I finally got her to go to sleep but when we started our descent into Salt Lake she woke up and didn't know what to do with herself. It was a parents worst nightmare! She just started screaming and didn't stop until I got off the plane 20 minutes later! Of course I couldn't stand up with her or walk her around since we were descending. On top of that it was 11:30 pm so everyone on the plane was trying to sleep! People were really nice and understanding though. I just hope that never happens again.

It was Sophia's 3rd birthday while we were there.
Check out the cute bubblegum machine cake!

Tessa was prepping for her own birthday cake soon

Future cheerleader! She's already mastered a qupee

Here are a bunch of fun beach pictures that Bobbie took

I love this picture of her! My little water baby

Jumping the waves with uncle Parker

All four of the cousins just love each other and have so much fun together, but these two are something else! I think they may be a pair of trouble makers!

This was how she went under once, but it was too cute and fun not to do

Sophia, Addison, Tessa, and Ella

Nice face Nate!

We went down to the beach one night and had a photo shoot

I love that she can walk holding our hands now

She was so amused with the sand, shells, and water. She just looked so precious

She loves her Daddy

This was the cutest thing! The girls saw us walking with Tessa so of course they had to too. Tessa loved it and thought it was so fun
