Well, I'm trying to get back to reality. My sister and two of her kids left last Thursday and since then, I've been trying to get my life back in order. I think the girls and I were officially on vacation for almost a month. We had a great time visiting everyone in Arizona. We especially loved the sunshine and warm weather. I forgot my sunglasses and I'm still not sure how I made it two weeks without them. Ryan played outside everyday with Grandma and Papa and was exhausted by the time our two weeks were up! She had tons of fun playing with all the cousins, going to the zoo with Papa and even a puppet show. I exhausted myself with a "quick" trip to LA to figure out how to start a business and then tons of running around AZ doing research. Peyton was officially a GRUMP in LA. She is normally a very happy baby, but after three days of either sitting in a carseat or stroller, she either scowled or screamed at anyone that looked at her. Her bottom two teeth decided to come in at the same time so none of us got any sleep. Oh well, overall it was a great time. While in AZ, my sister threw me a surprise birthday party. It was a total shock! I wish I'd had a clue because I looked AWFUL! I thought we were playing outside with the kids, so what was I going to get dressed up for?! Oh well, I had a great time catching up with old friends. We enjoyed going to Collin's (my nephew) t-ball game and finally getting to see Alexis perform with her dance group. It's surprising how quickly two weeks can fly by!
After returning from AZ, we had 3 days to get ready for my sister, Alexis and Slade to come visit. We spent a week wandering around Seattle and enjoying some RAIN! It rained almost the whole time they were here. Ryan whines every day about how much she misses Alexis. I just keep telling her it gives her something to look forward too. She can't wait for them to come again with Collin and Logan too!
P.S. I finally posted a picture of my pink hair and a picture from my party below!

You are SO lucky you finally updated this. I was totally about to ream you. Anyway, I love the pictures, especially the one that Ryan looks like she's about to cry in with the crab. You're such a mean mommy, making her stand there like that.
