Sugar and Spice...

Since I did a post about Donevan I figured I should do one about Iris too. She is getting so big so fast that I look at her and hardly recognize her anymore. I wonder where my tiny little Sugar Pie went. She is so much fun. She says the funniest things. And she is so smart. I'm sure I've already bragged about this before, but she knows all the letters and what sound they make and numbers 1-10. She loves to learn new things. The pictures from her birthday are on the other computer so I will try and put some of those on later, but for now these will have to do.

Quite the little lady.

Funny story...she was coloring in her coloring books on the floor. I looked over at her and she was taking something out of her mouth. I grabbed it from her and saw that it was the tip off one of her crayons. I told that we don't put crayons in our mouths and she looked at me and turned around and handed me this neat little pile of crayon tips. At least she wasn't eating them. Just a little nibble.

Just bein' her cute self.

The ultimate summer activity. After playin' hard in the sprinkler, sitting and enjoying a nice cold otter pop.

Helping dad on the tractor.

Chowin' down on a nice ear of corn. Another excellent summer activity.

The next few are from our camping trip to Frenchman's Lake. This is Iris with her friend, Aspen, and the fish that they caught. They were pretty pround. Iris wouldn't hold it though. She was okay with just holding the chain.

S'mores are a must when one is camping.

She had so much fun fishing. I think pretty much anything dad does she wants to do too. How 'bout those nice red shoes. Perfect camping attire if you ask me. It was all I could do to get her take those shoes off to go to bed.

She reeled this in all by herself. She kept saying "Dad, dad" and when he grabbed the pole from her he realized she had hooked something. So he showed her how to reel it in and here comes a little catfish. She was a little freaked out by it at first but was okay with it after a bit.

Bein' silly with Daddy. Whenever Evan asks her "How much do you love Daddy?" she always says, "Huge Daddy". It's cute.

She loves her cowboy hat. She pulls it down so it pretty much covers her eyes.
Cruisin' on her sweet hog.

Playin' with Roxy. She loves any animal.

My little ragamuffin.

She took her flower girl duties very seriously. She LOVED this "pitty dess" and the flowers. They are fake flowers so she still plays with them. Thank you Matt and Janessa for asking her to be a part of your wedding. I thought she was one of the cutest flower girls I have ever seen.
