 Here are some more pictures from Fargo that didn't make it on my last post. This top one is kind of silly, but I wanted to post it because it was SO cute--Stella figured out how to slide all by herself...she would climb the stairs, go over to the slide, go down, and continue the loop. Cute.

 My sweet Stella is not much of a smiler, and I find it pretty tough to get a picture of her actually smiling, so I'm very proud of this one.

Trip to Fargo

We had a fun weekend trip to Fargo to visit Ole's family. Highlights include a birthday party for Stella (which I didn't get pictures of), cousin time, and playing outside.

We also had a remarkably fun time at Burger King. Gideon's sweet cousin took him in the play area that he otherwise would have been too little for (because mommy was NOT going to crawl around after him).

The picture's blurry...but Stella got this chair for her birthday from grandma and grandpa. She's a fan. :)

Last night we ran to our favorite park to fly a kite. The kids really enjoyed watching it.

 Stella got a dolly from Grandma and Bestefar. She loves the little magnetic pacifier that it came with.

 The other day we went to our new favorite park and we bought some friends with us. I took the opportunity to have my sister take my family picture. This was the best of the bunch.
 Oh, hey, did you know my sister is giving me a NEPHEW!? Whoooohoo!

Happy Birthday to Me!!! (By Stella)

 Hey everyone! That's me looking awesome with my daddy in that picture up there. And guess what? I am ONE today! So that's cool. I thought I'd start my post with a great picture of me and then a funny picture of my brother:
 Ha! But that's nice that he wore that hat for me. My parents tried to wear them to, but the strings were too short or whatever. But that's okay because they gave me a cake...
 At first, I was all like, whaaaat do I do with this thing?

 But then, I was like, OOOoooooh. And I got into it a bit. And seriously, wasn't that nice of me to share with Gideon? I mean, it's not his birthday.

 After a bath, which I totally needed, mom and dad gave me my birthday present. It's pretty amazing. I love it and it's big so it's really easy to share with Gideon.
 After that we went to the play area at the mall. I haven't been there since I learned to walk, and it's actually really hard to walk on because it's super squishy. I fell a lot. It was fun.

That was my fun birthday celebration!
