Rilee and Taylor turned 4 on the 29th. We had a family party at our house on Tuesday and then on their birthday we planned a fun filled day. I had to work and they were pretty upset they had to wait until 3pm to open presents, but they made it. After the 2 minute drill of unwrapping all their presents we set out for the night. Rilee and Taylor were nice enough to let Anastasia join us for the night. Our first stop was Build-A-Bear and they loved every minute of that. We then had some pizza at the Gateway before heading up to the Real game against Colorado Rapids. Our Aunt Rosie works at a Real store and hooked us all up with uniforms.....they look so blasted cute!!!! If you ask me the soccer uniform looks sooooo much more natural on them then the dance outfits.....but maybe that's just me!! :)

Here is a couple of pix from Anastasia's first day of school. She is in 1st grade at Heritage Elem. We all got to walk (ride) to school and visit her classroom and get to meet her teacher, Mrs. Sweat. Anastasia is so excited to go to school all day and eat lunch there. She came home and said she had the best lunch ever..........peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I hope she continues to like the school lunch.....YUCK!!!!!!!!!! But she loves her teacher and class. Taylor and Rilee will start going to pre-school next week for 3 days a week. Mom is SO EXCITED for the break!!!

Face painting was one of the many fun things we did up camping. The girls played with their cousins, went tubbing down the river, did arts and crafts and roasted marshmellows over the fire. We are not big campers, but we had a good time. The girls went through about 3 outfits a day, as Amber hated to see them dirty!!
This is just after Anastasia's 3rd dance recital. She is loving the part about being on stage and performing, but she is not a big fan of all the practice. She is quite the "stage ham". We are so proud of her. Her sisters are FINALLY both potty trained so now they can start dancing and follow in big sisters footsteps.
