Wanna race?

Cooper practically lives on his big wheel. Every single day he is out racing it around the cul-de-sac. His friend Harry has a matching one and they are often found racing them together..wrecking each other, and then getting into a fight :) I saw this shirt at Gymboree and just had to get it for Cooper.

Making me smile.

A few weeks ago, Campbell and I were shopping around and we went into 'Fireworks', one of my favorite stores. There is always so many fun and unique things in there. In the kids area they have a bunch of sock monkeys and Campbell found a purple one that had magnets in the hands so you could hook the monkey to things and she really wanted it. Of course I got it for her and didn't think much about it. The next day, I noticed that she had hooked the monkey around her seat belt and I thought, how cute of her!

After the Seahawks game last Saturday night that Campbell and her cousin Cassie performed at, the kids all rode home with me. Campbell sat in the way back with her cousins Cassie and Clayton and I wasn't paying attention to anything, besides making sure she got her booster seat back there. The next day I go to clean out the car and this is what I see:

In all the chaos of trying to get everyone loaded in the car, Campbell made sure to grab her monkey and attach it to her seat belt in the way back. I couldn't help but smile when I saw that. She is such a special little girl and lately I have just been feeling like she is growing up way too fast. It's little things like this that remind me that she is still a sweet little girl :)

Campbell, Jr Sea Gal.


This past weekend, Campbell got to perform during half time of the Seahawks pre-season game vs. the Green Bay Packers and the whole experience was probably the highlight of her summer :) For 3 days she got to go to "training camp" where the Seagals taught the dances that they would perform. They got practice outfits along with the real outfits that they wore during the performance, along with shoes, pom pom's and a sweat outfit for afterwards. Campbell loved to tell us that she got to perform in front of 50,000 people. I wish I could say that I seen her, but once the girls rushed the field, it was impossible to find her, however they did show her on the big screen and I did see her there. We heard about this for weeks, and the week after her training camp, all she wanted to do was show everyone her cheers.

She says she is going to do this every year until she is 15 :) It was quite the experience for her and I loved being there to support her! I brought my brother Michael along to his first Seahawks game and some of our friends were there including the Bennett's. It was a fun night that Campbell will never forget!
