I love the Art Festival!

We went to art fest this last Friday.
Parking was a pain and everything was expensive, but I loved every minute of it!!!

This was the first year Kiara was out of the stroller (cause Kayla was in it ;) so I was a bit more nervous about watching her every move. But being out of the stroller ment she was also old enough to really enjoy some of the kids booths.

She made a flower,a sticker, a bottle cap bug and decorated a pair of sunglasses.

But her favorite part had nothing to do with the festival, as it is always there, the water!!!

I love being able to try different foods. This year I choose the curry chicken with purple rice from cafe fuzion. It was really good and spicy!

It was so busy down there but we still managed to meet up with our bible study group, our good friends the Deutmeyers and see a few other brothers and sisters from the DTC.

The Lord blessed us with a wonderful evening with great weather and amazing company!

Our first trip to the park, as a family of four!

Last weekend Josh and I decided to take the girls to the park to enjoy a little fresh air and give Kiara some special time.
We packed a few sandwiches, some fruit and Kiara's favorite... Cheetos!!! And headed out to Raccoon River Park. After finishing our lunch Kiara was free to hit the playground. Daddy got some time in the Word, Kayla napped in her car seat and mommy snapped a few photo's of everyone.

Here's Kiara loving the slide!

And trying something new...

And deciding she doesn't like it!
These things looked like so much fun, made me want to be a kid again!

This was her spider face!!!

 Here's the new friend she made!

Hello world

Hello friends
I've had this blog started for sometime now, but I've been waiting to post the first entry until our sweet baby girl made her arrival.
Well here she is...

Kayla Ann Scherb finally arrived (a week late) at 1:01pm on Thursday June 9th, 2011. Weighing in at a whopping (yes, your reading it right ) 10lbs 7.2oz and measuring 21.5 inches long.

Here's a some photo's showing her first few days of life at the hospital.

Baby foot prints!

Kayla's first bath (she wasn't a big fan of this process)

Mommy trying to "make it all better"

Now that she's dry and warm its all better

This was the last of 5 outfits we tried. She was too big for all of them except this one which happened to be the one we brought her big sister Kiara home from the hospital in, except it was huge on her!

Some special visitors!

Big sister Kiara was super excited!
