September Already!

Isabella is back in school and loving it! I snapped a quick picture of her in the car on the way to school on her first day.

On Saturday we went to The Turkey Hill Experience.


Isabella milked a "cow"


Lily thought they were funny.


Daddy and Isabella played two fun milk games.


Daddy was creating his custom flavor Ice Cream. Doesn't he look cute in his hat? : )


I thought this was really cool - it's a camera that watches the Turkey Hill plants in real time. You can watch them make ice cream and ice tea.


This one's for Grammy!!!


After creating our custom ice cream flavors and custom packaging, we all had to create our commercials. I was helping Lily with hers.


Daddy helped Raymond.

We had a fun time!


On Sunday, Lily was baptised. She looked so adorable! Babies should be required to wear bonnets everyday. So stinkin' cute!!!

Lily's Godmother, Vicki
Isabella looked so pretty.
Grammy


Raymond was a good boy!


Afterwards we went to Eric and Vicki's house for lunch and cake.


Isabella painted Aunt Theresa's nails.


Isabella and Angel


(We love Angel!)

On Monday we went to the Renaissance Fair with Grammy. It was Children's Fantasy Weekend. It looked like it was going to rain but luckily it only drizzled for a few minutes the entire time we were there.


Isabella ate a fudge-covered banana.



We met the Queen of the Renaissance Fair. She gave Isabella a red jewel which was super exciting! Then, we went to have cake with the queen...
While we waited.

Raymond hasn't been feeling that well the last few weeks. He developed a rash that wasn't getting better. I made an appointment for him to see his oncologist since the rash was similar to what he had when he was a baby. After going down to further investigate, I was told it was either AML (Leukemia) or a virus. So we anxiously waited and found out it was the virus. The doctor explained to us that in "normal" healthy children, it's not a big deal. But for Raymond, it could potentially take him 1-4 years to fully get rid of it. So until then, he will have good days and bad days. Luckily, Isabella and Lily aren't at risk of getting it.


I took this picture of all three kiddo's.










Here is an outtake from that photo shoot...

Our kids are always smiling!

We LOVE them so much!!!


On a side note - Has anyone seen the movie Hachi: A Dog's Tale? It stars Richard Gere. If you are a dog lover, you should see it. Watch it with a box of tissues.


Until Next Time!

Lots of Love,
