Camryn is BACK

On a rainy day this week I took the girls to the library for story time and then a group from the ward was going to Catch Air. Which is an indoor explosion of kid stuff. Heaven on earth for most kids. I have never been real fond of these places because I pay to get in and then Camryn sits on my lap the entire time and "watches the kids." So when we got there I talked to the employees about how she might not play and they said I would get my money back if she didn't like it. Well boy did I eat my words. She was obsessed. I couldn't believe it. Made not only her day but mine. I have never been able to just sit back and watch as she goes off to play. 
Right when we got there they had a what we call a " dance party." Camryn was in her element and Reagan loved the glowing floor and danced right along with the big kids. 
This was a fair swing type merry go round. And she loved it. I had to help her on but then she would hold on tight and drop when she was done.
Reagan got to do this little baby merry go round. She was so proud of herself. At one point she crawled to that middle section, pulled herself up and just stood there and waved and everyone.
Another fun spinning inflatable. Didn't know how they were supposed to ride on it but this way they both could do it together and not fall off. I love when I picture these two when they are older. This was one of those moments for me.
This was this room with huge bouncy balls and Reagan just scooted on in with all sorts of kids running and throwing balls everywhere. She didn't care one bit. She came right to the wall to wave and show how proud again she was. This girl is so opposite of Camryn. She loves all these kids around even though they may trample her in a second. 
I most of could not believe that Camryn wanted to go in a bounce house. She has HATED these things until now. But she just climbed right in and jumped with other kids around. There was a rope and ladder on the other side of the slide. She would climb up and slide down over and over. To most parents this is normal because kids do this but I just could believe how brave she was. It is about time she grew out of her phase. Plus this slide was so fun cause it was fast. We were all worn out by the end of two hours. Needless to say, we will be back here when it is too hot or raining outside. 
Having fun with my girls before bed one night as a single mom. Ryan was in Florida for work for a few days. Love these girls more than anything!
Another sign that Reagan is different than Camryn. I was organizing this cupboard and Reagan thought it was a perfect spot for her. 
And to pull herself up. I tell you she does this everywhere. Sorry for the bad phone pics on all these.
Had to put the gate up this week because she now goes all the way to the top. Not like her usual 2 or 3 stairs. She even took a small spill down the stairs this week poor thing. But looks to me like this gate isn't going to work much longer. She is finding a place to sneak through. 
Camryn's boyfriend, Mauricio. I had to be home all day with painters and guys spraying our major ant problem so I asked Camryn to ask a friend to come over and play. Figuring it was going to be a girl in her Sunbeam class, she said Mauricio. I asked again, like maybe one of the girls or someone else? I teach Sunbeams and I love Mauricio but I haven't ever talked to his parents or had much other contact with him. She would not let it go, it was so cute. "No, I only like boys and I want Mauricio to come over, he is so cute and I like him." So I called his mom and he was so excited to come play. She really does just love him and they played great together. She took him for a ride-literally and figuratively. 
This was just after she kissed him and crashed into the curb because she was so distracted. And of course she was the driver, he tried but was way too nervous, it was cute. Camryn is way too of a good driver-takes after her momma and Grandma Brenda.
And of course we had to decorate cupcakes together and then made some for his brothers to take home.  I just love that Camryn feels that she has friends now and is having fun at our house. 
And within minutes of Mauricio leaving. It was back to the Camryn I know. Naked. And make-up on. Can't get over this face. Total mix between the Black Swan, Joker (Heath Ledger), and a scary clown. Nothing wrong with a little over lining, right? I can't wait to have this picture in her wedding video. Never a dull moment in our house.

Camryn is so darn entertaining. I can't wait to see more of Reagan's personality. The pictures do give me a glimpse into her little world.

I loved this post! I don't even know where to start-so happy Camryn is enjoying some of her worst nightmares finally. The make up was the perfect ending to it all-definately wedding video worthy!
