Father's Day at the Zoo!

Today was such a fun Father's Day at the zoo with my fam and Grandpa Rudy. We got lucky with no rain and not a huge crowd. Abby got to be front row for an elephant bath which she loved. She just had a great time and zonked no problem tonight. Ty snuggled on me most of the time but did get a few compliments on his cute hat. I love my family and had so much fun with them today. Thank you Grandpa Rudy for taking us all to the zoo. Happy Father's Day to my husband, my Dad and Z's Dad i love you all!

It's been too long. . .

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted. My blog used to get updated on a weekly basis after Abigail was born. . .I guess two babies and a full time job equal not enough time in the day to get fun stuff like this done on a regular basis. Here are some fun May highlights. . .

My Birthday!  The big 3-6.  Yikes, I can't believe I am that old.
 My boys lookin ever so cute!
 Baby Don turned 1 so we had a party at the Lake House.  This pic is just too cute.  Abby rode in a boat for the first time and fished off the dock for the first time--she LOVED both!
 Mother's Day--we happened to be in Olympia so the Hussey clan celebrated together at Anthony's.  Afterwards we took a walk and had a big Stroller Brigade.  This is all the grandkids with Grammy and Gramps!
 Zach and I had our first vacation away from the babes.  Vegas Baby!  We were gone 3 nights and 3 days.  We basically sat by the pool all day and enjoyed yummy food and drinks at night.  It was soooo awesome relaxing w/o the children.  We had a really good time and can't wait to do it again.  :)
 Ty got baptized!  Abby was a bit antsy during mass so we gave her a "Dum Dum" to try and keep her happy.  She decided it needed to be thrown into the Holy Water Pool in the front of church.  I couldn't believe it!  I did save it though and decided I will make her suck on it when she is bad. . .it has to help, right????  :)
 Abby learned how to pump milk!  HA--just kidding but she thought she was really funny pretending. :)
 She is also getting really good at going potty in the toilet. . .wherever she sees fit.  Wouldn't it be nice to just take a toilet wherever you wanted?  She gets very excited when she "pottys" in the toilet but still wears a diaper 90% of the time.  I'm just not quite ready to fully commit to panties all the time. . .accidents over and over could really send me over the edge.  :)
 We visited the Pacific Science Center (this actually happened this month).  Abby has soooo much fun there and LOVES the "Dinosaur Bones".  I kept thinking there were going to be lots of bones but found out that is just what she calls dinosaurs.  :)  We had to go through this exhibit twice. 
 Ty also enjoyed the science center but wished he was a little bigger so he could go play with his sis. . .maybe next time.
 Our little guy is already 7 months old!  I can't even believe it.  He supposedly  hadn't grown in height from his 4 month appointment to his 6 month appointment so we're hoping at his 9 month appt. that there is a little growth. . .I don't think we are going to have a huge guy, that is for sure.  He is pretty much crawling. . .its more of a scoot and lunge but he can get all over very quickly.  I had him in his bedroom on the floor and he scooted to the door and shut it!  Made it a little difficult to get him because he was on the other side of the door blocking it from opening.  HA  He is eating solids a little bit and is getting better and better with it the more I offer it to him.  He is just my happy little guy all the time and I love it.  He makes me smile constantly.  Abby can really get him giggling--they are too cute together.  Speaking of Abby. . .she had her last day of preschool on Thursday.  We are going to miss it this summer and will be excited to start it up again in the Fall.  She has grown so much from being there these past few months and its been a nice break for me.  :)  I'm hoping to get to this blog more often so stay tuned. . .
Whaaaaaat's Uuuuup????  (Ty has also found his tongue and really enjoys sticking it out all the time!)
