New pink glasses coming soon!

I took Dallas to the opthamologist at Children's Hospital this week (see her left eye turning in) and it turns out she needs glasses. She has strabismus and amblyopia (her eyes aren't aligned properly with each other). I never would have known it b/c she always seems to see things fine on a page. But from far away she actually has really poor vision. She also gets to wear a patch 5 hours a day on her better eye to make the other one stronger. Now that I go back and look at pictures it seems so obvious that one eye turned in.

Princesses and Butterflies

Here are some pictures from my niece's 4th Cinderella Party: Darby, the birthday girl is the one with the pretty updo in the Cinderella dress. Brenna did not put down the fingernail polish the whole time. Maybe once for a cupcake. They played in these awesome cardboard castle's Brooke cut out! Such a cute party.
The butterfly pictures are from this weekend too. I love seeing all the butterflies. Dallas wanted one to land on her head so bad, but they only went on Brenna's and Abby's.

Nathan graduated on Friday! It was really neat. I am so proud of him. He has worked so hard. And is still working hard for another month until boards are over. I almost cried when they called his name out to put his hood on. The girls survived the 3 hour long commencement by playing with their aunt Paula and candy from their Nana & Gpa. My Dad held Sadie almost the whole time which was so nice. I can't believe 4 years has gone by. My parents came in town for the week which was a blast. They lightened my load a ton! The kids were soo happy to see them. They loved getting presents from them, getting books read to them, their nails painted by Nana, eat good food, endless games, going to the park with them, and church, and my Dad even took the 2 older ones to the Natural History Museum. My Mom did way too much--she had major knee surgery only a month ago but still managed to go to the zoo! It was so fun to have her here for Mother's Day. Nathan surprised us both with corsages that we wore to church:).

So Nathan was THE photographer for his cousins wedding this weekend in San Diego! He worked so hard. And the pictures turned out amazing. We were lucky enough to get a night to ourselves. The girls spent the night with their cousin Abby. Soo so nice of them! Here are some picts from this weekend and also a few more from Luke's baseball game last week.
