Happy Memorial Day!

Avery slept until 7:35am for me this morning!  It was wonderful.  She did wake up at 1:45am for a diaper change and bottle but she went right back to sleep.  She was a tired girl.  Today we had to get ready for our Memorial day get together.  Avery was excited and ready to go in her patriotic outfit and bow.  Everyone came over between 12pm and 1pm.  
 I made my awesome crock pot queso today.  I seriously could stand over this pot and eat it all.  I'll post the recipe following this post.
 Eric prepared ribs and we bought some coleslaw to have as a side.  Our friends provided potato salad, feta dip, a fruit bowl, and desserts.  All of the food was fantastic!
 Here are all of the girls hanging out and playing.  We had three girls and one boy over to play today.  Everyone was so well behaved and all took a nap at some point during the afternoon.
 Rhyan LOVED trying out the jumper!  She is one week younger than Avery but is already crawling, pulling herself up and trying to walk!  She is so adorable.  Michael and Jenny are going to have to child proof their house really soon for this little girl on the move.
 Miss Sophia is getting so big!  I haven't seen her in a couple of months.  She was sitting up some on her own today and chewing on all the toys.  She even tried out the jumper and really liked it!  I think we know what Matt and Emily will be buying her next.
 After everyone had some food, we headed out back to let the kids take a dip in the pool.  Matt and Emily brought over their awesome inflatable pool.  It is a great size.  Avery wasn't too sure about the pool this time, but she quickly warmed up to it and enjoyed herself.
 Rolo is supervising as always.
 Sophia the bathing beauty in the Bumpo chair.  This chair was great in the pool.  Sophia and Avery took turns sitting in it.
 Rhyan was a splish splashing queen!  She had no fear of the water and just loved it.
 Anthony and Vanessa's son Everett is 4 months old, so he was a little younger than the girls.  He hung out and watched the ladies splash in the pool.  He is such a doll and I love his little hat.  Eric and I got some little grins out of him today!
 Everett just dipping his toes in the water.
 All the kids enjoying some water and sunshine.  It was a beautiful day out today!

It was so nice to have some friends come over and visit.  I'm looking forward to having more get together's and visiting friends this summer.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial day!  Now off to relax the rest of the evening.
