Emalie has fallen head over heels in love with her Daddy. He walks in the room and she just grins and waits for his attention and then he talks to her and look out. Its smiles and giggles and she reaches out to have him hold her. It's just pretty darn awesome the love they have for each other!

Luke, Jeremey and Abbey ready to go up up and away.
Here they are getting low enough to touch the wheat.
The traditional champagne toast and history lesson about how ballooning first started and why pilots are called pilots! Then the first time riders get to drink champange. Abbey DOES NOT like champagne. She was also presented a certificate and special POW/MIA ballooning pin.

I am doing things so out of order I know. Things to look forward to:
Abbey's first hot air balloon ride
Cute picts of Daddy and Emalie
Soccer picts of Justy and Zachery
Natalie's program picts
We are celebrating Abbey's birthday this weekend so I don't know when I will get more posts. This way you can keep checking!
- She is scooting backwards
- Moves forward, but not "officially" crawling
- Sits herself up from laying down on her belly!!
- Getting so close to cutting her first tooth
- Sleepin SO much better through the night

When I went up I looked back and saw some other balloons going up and some coming down. I think 6 or 7 ended up flying Friday evening.
Here is looking off towards Attica, just before we switched riders again. Luke took us pretty high this year, and I got to fly for about 20 minutes. The entire flight of the balloon was about 10 miles long. I think I have just as much fun chasing the balloon as I do riding in it.

I am sure if I hit it hard enough it will start!
Natalie and her tea party.
Natalie and Jonathon splashing, before the big "fall"
And Miss Emalie just taking it all in! What a happy girl!

I was lucky enough to spend part of my mother's day with my mom. It is so nice to just spend time with her, and at the home that I grew up in. I just get so sentimental about home. It is only 25 minutes away and I still love going there! Maybe its the two residents there, the verdict is still out on that one! I have such a new respect for my parents, especially since we have 4 of our own just like they did. I think they did a heck of a job raising us, if I may say so myself!
A sidenote to Mother's Day is that I don't have to cook anything big for meals. We had sandwhiches for lunch and Amby made lasagna. YUM. Then we headed to see Nana for Mother's Day and missed dessert with her by 2 phone calls. Trust me, I am very disappointed. I hate to miss dessert! But we did catch up with them at her house and got to chat for a while before bedtime!
Happy Mother's Day to All and to all (especially mine) a Good Night!
On Thursday we went to the zoo with Natalie's preschool and took Zachery and Emalie. A preschool friend joined our group for the day. Weather was beautiful!
Emalie really loved the zoo the first day, big smiles!!!
How cute, making sure Zachery doesn't run off!
Zachery got VERY EXCITED about the penguins! I got this picture in mid jump!
Girls and Gorillas!
On Friday, I rode the school bus up to the zoo with Abbey and her class. It is a long trip to Wichita with 40+ loud kids and a bus that drives 60-65! But I am very happy I did it. Nana brought Emalie up to the zoo late in the morning. The weather Friday was WINDY! I was in "charge" of 3 girls this trip. I was so scared I was going to lose one of them! But I didn't!
