When Cousins Come to Visit

When cousins come to visit we...
Try and convince our mommies to let us all sleep in the same bed.
Wear matching outfits.
Celebrate our birthdays, again.
Ride trains,

and carousels.
Have picnics and eat things mommy would never let us eat otherwise.

Rent a minivan and tell our moms that they are really cool. (Sorry girls, we don't believe you!)
Have so much fun.
When cousins leave Sadie...
Cries and says she wants to go on the airplane too.
Wakes up the next day saying in a sad voice, "Carys, airplane, bye-bye."
Decides that anything they used while they were here is now theirs. "No mommy, Madison's chair!"
Prays for them.
Looks forward to seeing them again soon!

Summer Fun

Summer time is oh so fun. Here are some of the things we have done:

We played at the park.
We drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway with friends. Elena and Sadie were so cute together.

We pretended to be news anchors at the Children's Musuem.
We went to the Dash baseball game for the DPG family picnic.

We swam with friends.
We wear our sunglasses all the time.
We dressed like cows at Chick-fil-a.

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July! Sadie had a rough holiday... It started Friday night at the baseball game. There was a fireworks show after the game that terrified her. Then we went to the Jackson's Saturday morning for waffles, water ballons & slip 'n slides. The Pearl had one tantrum after another in front of everyone (she usually saves for us at home). Then today, Sunday, she was so well behaved during sacrament meeting. So cuddly, sitting on my lapping holding perfectly still and then falling asleep. There was a reason for this - a fever. Even with her best friend Abby over for dinner, she had a difficult time getting into the celebration. Her expressions in the pictures to follow show it all.

Compare our little girl this year and last.

The red, white and blue girls this year and last. Growing so fast!

Little miss Liberty!

Charleston, SC

We had a great time in Charleston last month with Mike's parents. We learned something new about our girl, she loves the beach!

The Magnolia Plantation was so green and pretty.

Sadie couldn't get enough of the water.

Not again Daddy!
At the aquarium we enjoyed the otters,
the alligators,
and the fish.

We took a boat to Fort Sumter.

It was fun to walk along the water
and the famous Rainbow Row.
