17 month update

See below for a collection of activities and events during the past month! Hopefully tonight I can update with pictures instead of many words.
17 months written with sidewalk chalk, one of our favorite outside activities these days.
Addelyn got her first haircut. After a few people pointed out "the business in the front, party in the back" mullet she had going on...I decided it was time. She did well....sat very still with an uncertain look on her face. We didn't cut her bangs- we figured summer is a good time to grow those out!

Hanging out with her buddies- Ian & Austin...all three of these kiddos were born within two weeks of each other.

Taking a walk with Daddy. Notice she is pushing the stroller. Addelyn wanted to take "babydoll" for a walk!

Summer days outside include Addelyn's new car from Grandpa and Grandma Kramer. She loves it.

We took a vacation to St. Louis with our friends the Hansens this month. More pics from this great time to come later! It really deserves its own post.

Ice cream for the first time! To be honest, she wasn't that impressed. She only ate a bite or so and I tried again the other day and she still didn't like it. That is not a bad thing!

Addelyn has been a great helper. She has been "mowing" and "raking" with Daddy and helping me water my tomato plants. Although she is fearless of ants, I learned the other day that spiders are a different story. There was one on her watering bucket and she FREAKED out.

She will always take a break to wave to the neighbor across the street. She is very friendly!

It has been a great month and we are excited that summer is here. We are looking forward to warmer days, lots of play time outside, and hopefully some pool time too!
