Mosquito 1

Mosquito 1 Jellybean 0   The jellybean got a mosquito bite just under her eye.  It looks bad but she is one tough cookie!!! The doctor said to just watch it, that is about all you can do :/

Dance Party!

Wacky Wednesday

Note to self...When the Bean decides she is giving up her morning nap be sure to be at home by 1:00pm so you can put her down for an afternoon nap, if not you are screwed.   Well, lesson learned, instead of being at home we were at the roller rink.  I'm so glad we were because The Ladybug won the limbo contest!!!                                 More playing outside and the day was complete!

Backyard Fun

This weekend we put up a shade sail in the backyard (something that we can easily take down in the winter). It has been a hit! The girls (dogs too) have been enjoying the extra shade in the grass and it gives us a little more time to spend outside. We all know how much the girls love to be outside!!!

Add in a little cloud dough and fun was had by all after lunch today.

Change of Plans

The library and errands turned into a little school, library, zoo, no nap, and fun in the backyard. Ehhh best laid plans, right? That's what summer is for!!

The Ladybug Turns Seven!

Not really sure how this happened. Pretty sure it was just yesterday that we were running around with our heads cut off trying to buy stuff to bring home our precious little girl.  And now she is 7?!   Today she wrapped up a week at Lego Camp with her buddy Carter. They put on a "play" with their Lego creations that they worked on all week. She wanted to go as Princess Leia, so we decked her out and sent her on her way.
She was so excited!!! When I walked her in she was pretty much swarmed by the other kids and everyone was excited. The Ladybug was the only one dressed up, but she didn't care.   We had dinner and said our "see ya laters" to our wonderful babysitter that has been with us the last three years.  Our family has been lucky to have Nikky in our lives and she will be missed.  Nikky just fit, and we are an odd group to just fit with. We wish her luck and can't wait to visit when we head back out to California for visits.   Texas Roadhouse was the destination of choice for the Ladybug's birthday dinner. Fun was had by all and she was spoiled rotten by the waiter.  Happy Birthday Ladybug!!!

Momma Wears Me OUT!!!

When the Ladybug is away we don't just sit around and do nothing!!!  

We slide and point at bubbles

We run through the bubbles

And swat at them

We taste colored water...yes she tried all four of them, blue seemed to be the favorite.

And we fall asleep while eating lunch at 12:06...yes, she did transfer and slept for three hours. This being a toddler is hard stuff!!!

A Morning with the Bean

Dropped the Ladybug off at Lego camp this morning and the Jellybean and I have been having tons of fun exploring the backyard.

Colored water fun in the water table, chasing bubbles, sliding down the slide and then climbing back up, drawing on the chalk board and picking zucchini to make bread and cook for dinner. Busy mornings make for wonderful afternoon naps!!!
