The Hale's Got Talent!

Mike has been letting the kids play with his harmonica for the past few days. Landon came upstairs last night with Abbie's "Elton John" sunglasses on and was blowin away on the "monica." It was so hilarious. We were all laughing, which only prompted him to put on more of a show. What a funny kid.

Aquatic Park

Mike was able to go with us to the local pool the other night. The kids and I have Summer passes, but Mike had to pay. It was worth it though. It wasn't too crowded, and the kids got to go on the big waterslides. Abbie was a little apprehensive at first, but then decided to give it a try. As you can see from the smile on her face, she LOVED it! Mike just had her hold her cast up and we put a bag on it. It was pretty funny. Landon on the other hand was trying to run up the steps to go by himself. He also loved it. I love the times when Mike gets to go with us to our favorite places. I know the kids love it too. Landon wanted him to do everything for him, and Abbie just kept saying "Watch me daddy!" I love my little family!

Poor Poor Abbie

So, It's finally happened! We have a broken bone. I have to admit, I'm a little surprised it didn't happen earlier. No, this did not happen from the kids jumping on the couch...Abbie fell off of the neighbors swing last Saturday. She is not crying in the picture from the pain and trauma of a broken arm, rather the lack of a nap. She did not want to cooperate for a picture and apparently I was making her miss her favorite part of the show she was watching. Anyway, she is doing fine. She has to have her cast on for 4 weeks, which is really bad timing considering Summer just started. She was great getting the cast complaints, but we'll see what happens when they come at her with a rotating saw in a few weeks.

Crazy Hair!

So, I went to get my hair cut on Friday, and Abbie came with me. The girl who cut my hair asked if I had ever put Abbie's hair in socks. She said you just roll the hair around the sock, and tie it off at the top. Well, we decided to try it Sunday night. Abs really loved how funny she looked with all the socks in her hair.

This was the result the next morning. I didn't even know what to do with it! It was so short. We opted for a ponytail, which actually looked like a prom hairdo with how curly it was. She looked pretty cute! Just for the record, Landon got a haircut this past week too.

Two in a row!

We found out that we are having another boy! Mike and I are thrilled to finally know. It feels like it has taken me forever to get to 20 weeks. Abbie was not so thrilled about the prospect of having another brother. She of course wanted a girl. I reminded her about how much she loves her brother and she'll have another one to love. Landon doesn't know the difference. He just tells me that the babys name is going to be James, Percy, Thomas, Gordon etc..... I;m just happy to say that I'm half way done! Now if I can just get through the hot Summer!
