Happy Birthday Kyle!


Last weekend we celebrated Kyle's birthday by going camping. It was our first trip to the KOA in Willits. Both of us have heard great things about it, so we thought we'd give it a shot. My mom let us use her tent trailer, which made camping a bit easier with the boys. We had so much fun, they had a swimming pool, petting zoo, splishy splashy, miniature golf, fishing pond, disc golf,  a huge play structure, and lots more. Since it was an hour drive for us, it was perfect, we were able to go over after Kyle got off work, and come home and still have a majority of our day left. We had a fun and relaxing camping trip.

Meet Lou.


 She joined our family this weekend while we were camping. Lou is an 8 week old chocolate lab. She's so cute, and so much fun! Originally we though we wanted a yellow lab, and when we went there, we fell in love with her. He parents were really good looking chocolate labs, and her grandfather was an award winning chocolate lab. She's a pretty mellow and friendly puppy. So far she's adjusting nicely to the craziness around our house. 

Here's a few pic's from the weekend:

Some of you may have heard about our little fish. Nico is crazy in the water. He will jump into the water, and float face down until someone picks him up (sometimes he kicks his legs). Really it's kind of frightening. When we've been in public places, we've had concerned parents ask if he's ok. It's great that he has no fear of water, but scary at the same time.

Here's a little video of Nico at 18 months. He probably jumped into the pool like this 30 times, and I'm not kidding. As you can see, Elio loves the water but is a bit more cautious.

Also, in other big news at the Nele household, Elio can ride his bike without training wheels! Woohoo! He's been practicing just about every night and he's loving it. We're pretty impressed, especially since he is only 3 years and 3 months old.

Just in case you don't know how to ride a bike, here's a little lesson for you:

Here's Elio!

 Nico's trying to get in on the bike riding action too:

A Beautiful Wedding

I'm feeling like we've been going nonstop this summer! Between family, friends, MOMS Club, vacations, weddings, babies, showers, Avon Walk, and working on the house (I'm sure there's lot's more!), we've been busy. I haven't hardly had time to blog, and I don't even have time to do many crafts for my crafting blog. So here I am doing a little blogging tonight to catch up. 
I can't say as I have a problem with being busy. We are never bored and it makes the days go by really fast. I know that when winter comes and we're not able to do so many outdoor activities, I'm going to be bummed, so we better enjoy it now!

Here's a few pic's from one of my best friends wedding. I've known Anna forever, actually we were born only a few hours apart. So many of my childhood memories have Anna in them. I couldn't be more happy for her, she picked an amazing guy, and they are so in love!

Look who got himself dressed today...

 Isn't he cute!
I couldn't help but laugh a little (not in front of him of course) when he asked me to button his pants.
