About 3 months ago, Ella stopped taking naps Completely! Not to suprising ,because ever since she was born she has never been a sleeper, too much going on for her to sleep. Those of you that know Ella completely understand:) But, this week she has had the most random nap schedule!
Sunday- Slept from 3:00-4:00 (We have church until 2:30)
Monday-Slept from 1:00-5:00 ( I even had to wake her up, so she wouldn't be up until midnight)
Tuesday- While we were Grocery Shopping she fell asleep sitting up in the grocery cart.(wish I had camera with me)
Today- Asks me if she can please take a nap, you know what's even better is Carson is asleep at the same time-WOO HOO! Must be a growth spurt or the heat or something, in the meantime I am getting lots done, and enjoying my free time. She is such a funny girl!

Now that Chad owns a Movie Theater, we decided to take the kids to see "Space Chimps" today. I never would have attempted taking the kids if we were going to another theater. They were actually pretty good, and sat through the whole thing. This was the first movie they had ever been to at a theater. It was a little bit cheesy, but a cute movie for kids.

Ella enjoying her ice cream!
Sidenote: Chad owns a Spanish Movie theater, On Alma School and Southern. (Where the old Poca Fiesta Was, for all you Mesa Natives:)
It's English Movies, with Spanish Subtitles. Tell your Friends and Family about it! You can google Cine mania mesa for showtimes.

I can't believe my baby is 6 months old today. It just seems like yesterday I found out I was pregnant with him. They don't stay little for a minute. I am so very thankful for Carson and the sweet spirit he brings to our home. He is such a happy baby, always laughing and smiling. He has been such a great addition to our little family. Thinking back 6 months ago brings back a flood of emotions. Carson was born 3 1/2 weeks early. He had some breathing problems after he was born, and had to stay in the NICU for a week. Besides holding him shortly after he was born, I didn't get to hold him for 2 days, those were the hardest 2 days not knowing what was going on, and not knowing if he was going to be ok. He was such a fighter and I am so thankful he is a healthy, happy 6 month old today. I love him so very much, and feel blessed I get to be his mommy!

We had such a fun Fourth of July! We Stayed at the Butte's in Tempe with my parents! It was nice to get away, but not have to drive too far and spend lots of money on gas.We had such a good time swimming, relaxing, eating, shopping and spending time with my parents! We want to start making this a tradition every year!
