A little about me

My photo
I'm a 25 year old mom to one beautiful daughter. I'm engaged and we have two dogs that we refer to as "the girls". I've started this blog in order to see what a years worth of pictures is like from my view. I don't have a "subject" I'll be focusing on, but you can bet that quite a few of the pictures will be of my daughter. :)

DAY 19

We met up with my friend and her children today at the park. We met later than originally planned and the sun was out and it was hot!

We didn't stay too long and I didn't get too many pictures as we were busy chatting and it was too hot to run around and try to snap them.

Here are some that I captured of Adalynn just before my friend showed up.

Sitting pretty

climbing her way up to the slide


DAY 18

I'm having issues with my camera charging... these were taken last minute due to the issue.

Travis playing WoW

Myself shortly after I took the picture of Travis


Well... I fail. I managed NOT to take ANY pictures. I'm freaking shocked!

I SWEAR I took at least a picture or two...but my camera and my picture folders say otherwise.

So unfortunately, there is not a picture for today.

Day 16

DAY 16

She was making a "eww" face for some reason... I don't remember why.

Here she was being silly with Dad and when I asked if she wanted a drink she decided that she was too busy to get up and get it, so she took it as she was.... between Dad's legs trying to knock him over. :)

DAY 15

Day 15

Gourd head... My grandma takes gourds and makes them into "art". This is something she made for my mom. Adalynn figured it was a hat. :)

behind...just a little

So once again I'm a few days behind and in a few more days I'll be a few days behind again.

I'm catching up... this is DAY 14

She was so impressed w/ herself. She climbed on my computer chair and grabbed those from my computer desk while I was in the shower.

This is her at Daddy's work, sitting in a big rocking chair. She was "smiling" at someone walking by.

Day 13...

One day off from Friday the 13th.

Today was a BUSY day for me... so I didn't capture a whole lot.

These pictures were taken with my phone... SK (side kick)

belly down and looking forward in the "baby seat" of the cart

Thinking she was going to get away with standing up, needless to say, she did not

This was actually taken with my camera... Its a compact from Mary Kay that I received for FREE :) Now I just need to purchase make up to fill it.


Day 12...

Wasn't the greatest of days.

Once I brought out the camera it decided to die.

So here is the ONE picture I captured.

This is Adalynn w/ her toothbrush, she was getting ready for bed.

Day 11...

Today wasn't the best day. I didn't really feel like bringing out the camera so I didn't really.

This is a picture of the girls... they rarely sleep on the bed at the same time any more since they're more into being butt heads to each other. So, naturally I had to capture this moment.

This is Travis' warlock on WoW... well, one of them.

And this is another toon of his but I'm unsure of what she is. I'm thinking a warrior since she is wielding 2 weapons.

Of course the toons are on his computer and I took a picture of his screen.

Day 10...

Today I didn't do many pictures, nor did I do anything "special" because I was still exhausted from our trip. Even though I got like a 5 hour nap.

I just happen to get out of the shower after my nap and walk into the kitchen to find the following...

Adalynn helping Daddy unload the dishwasher. Here she was handing him the silverware

When the silverware was finished she started handing him the glasses. I LOVE that she's such a big helper, I hope it lasts as she gets older

And here is my snot nosed, teething 16 month old goofy girl


Day 9...
Was pretty uneventful.

We woke up, packed up our things, took the tent down and loaded everything into the car.

Ate breakfast... left over steak from the night before, with dough nuts, strawberries and pineapple and a glass of milk. At least that's what I had.

After breakfast there were pictures and then we were on the road headed home.

The Smiths, Gulnacs and a Green (the Green would be me)

The entire clan

Travis all scruffy on the way home (that's what happens when he doesn't shave for days)

Its sad that I look better after 4 days of not showering then freshly showered.

Adalynn on the way home... wiping up her sippy cup with a baby wipe


Day 8...

Was a bit chilly in the morning due to the rain that came the day/night before.

However, later in the day, Adalynn got to have her first experience with a slip n slide. Though the water was cold, she had a blast.

Playing with a water bottle, she loves putting the lid on and taking it off

her shirt shows how good the watermelon was that she ate.

Eating a ball...didn't you know plastic is delicious?!

Running from the slip n slide to Grandma Smith

Clapping for herself... she had so much fun in the COLD water


The family reunion was held at Travis' Aunt and Uncle's lake house which is at Kellers Ferry in WA.

Though they had a house, we "camped" out. Yes, that's right, we slept in a tent and all the food was prepared on BBQ's.

All the drinks were kept cold in ice chests packed with ice.

They even rented porta potties so we could use those instead of trampling in their house.

Addy and her lovely morning do... she wanted that capri sun so bad.

Not so sure about what's over yonder

Being a silly little girl and not sitting in the chair the way its meant to be sat in

Daddy and his princess walking to the water

Dulche' did NOT want to go in but Baby Girl did

Baby Girl won and ended up getting Dulche' to join in on the fun

Random leaf that was in the sand


Day 6 is a little late, as will be day 7, day 8, day 9, day 10 AND day 11 due to the family reunion I attended over the weekend.

Since we were in the car most of the time on the 6th, they're not too exciting.

Travis just as we were getting on the road

myself shortly after... no make up, YUCK

Addy, raring to go even though she was woken up hours before normal

This is a blade used for an energy wind mill, they were transferring from some place up to a wind mill

Here is the picture of a wind mill (Travis took this picture since I was driving, and the one of the blade)

And here is Miss Addy relaxing on her Daddy's hammock after a long drive

Today was a BUSY day as you can tell in the first picture... We're leaving on a trip tomorrow at the butt crack of dawn and won't be back until Sunday evening. I was busy trying to get laundry done and get everything packed that we would need.

I of course had to snap a few pictures so I wouldn't miss today since I'm able to post for the day.

While I'm out though, unfortunately, I won't be able to post anything as my cell phone won't have service. :(

I will however, catch up when I get back. Be prepared for TONS of pictures.

Oh and in case you're wondering, we're going to WA for Travis' family reunion. Its going to be a hoot! LOL

This first picture is Adalynn going to get part of her toy train. For those who may be curious, she's wearing a CLOTH DIAPER. The clothes that you see aren't normally there, I was going through them to pack for this weekend.

This is Adalynn going towards the pantry... this is "her place" to eat her snacks. I'm not sure why she went there w/ the train, but apparently she felt she needed to. (I hang dry most of our clothes outside, but I don't want to flash my underwear or bras so that's the tid bit you see on the right) ha ha

And this picture is quite humorous if I do say so myself... I'm sure you're all thinking she's pooping, but she's not. LOL She's actually holding herself up while she bends over to pick up her train.

Day number 4...

Today was a long day and a took a ton of pictures. While Travis went for his placement test for college Adalynn and I spent most of the time at the park. Which she totally loved.

After the park she snoozed a bit in the car, and once Travis was done we went and did some shopping and then ended up at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Adalynn is such a dork... I say this is the MOST loving way possible. Here are some pictures from the day (only a few).

In the car on the way to the college, eating some animal crackers

Looking out the window

Playing at the park... this is the bike rack

her cup of gold fish

a SELF taken picture of myself... I kind of like it

Enjoying a good but sour green apple

Dinner was too spicy, so instead she had a PB&J and from what you see, the J got ALL over. She got a bath at Grandma and Grandpa's.
