The Stellas- My new favorite song

If anyone watches Can You Duet( American Idol type show for country duos) on CMT you've heard of The Stellas. They are a husband/wife duo from Canada and I just LOVE them. They have two little girls and wrote a song for them called "Riding in the Backseat". Let's just say I totally relate to this song and just LOVE it!! It brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it. I can't wait for them to come out with an album.

Summer Update

Summer is in full swing so I thought I'd update on our activities thus far. This heat wave has been limiting our outdoor activities since it's been over 100 degrees for over 30 days straight!!! The pool is our only relief from the Texas heat so we go there often and is fun for all. I can lay around in the baby pool while the girls splash and run around.

We also took the girls to see Dora Live!!! I knew Madison would love it but was so surprised at how it captured Emma's attention. I don't think she's even watched an episode of Dora before. But I guess a giant monkey and million stars on the ceiling would capture anyone's attention. The week before the show Dora made an appearance at the zoo so Madison got to meet her favorite cartoon character. She was surprised at how tall Dora was, she assumed she'd be a little girl. Which is something the Nickelodeon people should keep in mind. Kid on the TV should equal kid in person.

Found the one...

For those who check this blog often, you see that I like to play around with blogger templates. Well, I've finally found a keeper! It's hard to find the perfect simple yet cute template. I'm working on getting some updated pictures of Madison's meet and greet with Dora and the girls' many afternoons in the pool. Hope everyone is having a great summer do far.
