DJ and I had a mini getaway in Michigan on Monday night and then look the kids to Wisconsin Dells on Tuesday for the week. It was a busy week!! I had a library conference so Isabelle and Baby DJ were able to spend a lot of time at the pool. Isabelle loved the water park - her favorite thing was the slides!! We also went to the zoo and had a lot of fun just hanging out in the hotel room.

It's a rare moment when I can get a half-way decent picture of these two!! Usually at least one of the is looking the other way or trying to run away. Isabelle loves making Baby Daniel "breakfast" with her kitchen set and Daniel is getting a lot more active. Summer is going by fast, but we are enjoying the nice weather outside. Our recent adventures include going to the Betty Brinn Children's Museum, library activities and music classes, and lots of family time. We recently had a family reunion with my Mom's side of the family at my grandparents house in Green Bay and Isabelle and Daniel got to play with all of their cousins.

Isabelle is 2 1/2 years old today!!
She loves dancing to music, playing with her kitchen, coloring, reading books, and playing with her brother! Her favorite characters are Daniel Tiger and Elmo.
We spent the day with Grandma Michelle at Horicon Marsh for a library event. The kids had a lot of fun doing crafts, listening to stories, and catching for fish. Isabelle got her face painted and learned how to shoot and arrow!!
See all of our monthly pictures here.

We've had a busy summer so far!! Lots of trips to the zoo and the parks and swimming at Grandma an Gido's house. The kids love being outside and Isabelle has been busy picking flowers for everyone - especially dandelions. Isabelle has been a lot more engaged in weekly storytime and we have been going to lots of programs at libraries. Daniel has also started going to baby music class once a month and loves moving around!!

Work has kept me pretty busy lately, but this weekend I took the kids up to Neenah for my cousin's baby shower. Isabelle had a lot of fun playing with her cousin Henry and we got to meet his new baby brother. We somehow managed to get some great pictures with Great-Baba and Gido and their Great-Grandchildren!
Then we had a sleepover at Isabelle's friend Ava's house - here they are practicing their piano duet.

Happy Easter from the Smith family!!!
Isabelle and Daniel had a busy Easter weekend. We went to see Mohana at the library on Friday and went to an Easter Egg hunt where they had candy drop from an airplane. On Saturday we made Easter desert with Aunt Amber. Sunday we went to my parents house with my brothers and grandparents and then came back to our house to have Easter with DJ's family.
Isabelle and Daniel looked super cute in their Easter outfits!! They loved hunting for Easter Eggs and playing with their "hop-hops."
Here was our attempt at a family photo!!

We have been busy over the last few weeks preparing for Baby Smith #2 to arrive!! Isabelle is very excited about being a big sister. She makes sure to feed him breakfast in the morning (usually one of her pretend cupcakes) and gives him lots of hugs and kisses. She has recently started taking care of her "babies" by tucking them in at night and putting diapers on them.
Isabelle loves playing with her kitchen, reading books, coloring, watching Daniel Tiger and Disney movies, and playing with her fishing game. She can count to 5 (usually) and knows most of her colors. Isabelle learning new words every day, but still not a lot of talking yet. We also had some surprisingly nice days outside lately and made a few trips to the zoo and archery range/park.
