Hair cut

There's no denying that Jared is the fun parent. Both the kids just adore him. Which I love. Jared is always willing to do fun things like this
Yes, Jared let Ayden cut his hair. Ayden did not know how to properly the clippers, but it was a great attempt :o)

Dinosaur Museum

The other night we went to the a dinosaur museum. Honestly, we don't get to do things like this often. I'm hoping we can start since the kiddos are getting older now. Anyway~ here's a few pictures from our outing.

Ayden was a lot of fun and starting to get interested in things like this. If anyone comes to see us, we'll have to take you!! Love to all!!!

So, many of you know I am a huge dog lover. Jared, not so much. But he was awesome and let me get Buddy. I think that was because I warned him even before we were engaged, that when I get married I will have at least a dog. Anyway~ so when I was in my last semester of nursing school, I was having a really hard time sticking with it. I just felt like I couldn't do it anymore. Jared told me that if I could stick it out and graduate he'd let me get another dog. Well, that didn't happen because... well, we got Bree about a week after I graduated. So... fast forward to a week ago. Jared dropped Buddy off at the local PetSmart to be groomed. I pulled in a few hours later to get Buddy, they were doing an adoption drive!!! Of course I couldn't help but look!!! Well, I then found this cutie.
She had been a stray. After talking to Jared, she came home with me!!
Jared named her Tayla after the Stargate character. I think it's a cute name too. Tayla is such a sweet heart. And the kids just love her!!
She definitely needs some working with (ie, staying off my furniture, out of the trash, and a bit of potty training). But overall she's been so fun to have!!!!
Buddy's still getting use to her. lol overall he likes her, but I know he wishes she'd play more. maybe once she settles in more. Buddy is actually very submissive to Tayla. The dog pillow in the pic. below... yeah, frequently Tayla's on it and Buddys on the carpet... even though the pillow is Buddy's.
Anyway~ there's a bit of an intro. to our newest family member :o) Hope this finds everyone well. Love to all!!
