Fancy Shoes

Highlights of the past week and a half...

"Being on Stage" at Theater Camp-The theme was cats. Afton made cat ears for her and Greta to wear for their big performance.

Cupcakes with Friends- Maisy calls them 'Happybirthdaytoyous'. Yummy!

Leopard Flats- Maisy calls them 'fancy'. They used to be Afton's and now they are Maisy's favorite shoes to wear.

A Disco Ball- It was on sale at Lowes, you are only young once right? Besides now our dance parties are sooo much cooler!

Throw in some swimming with friends, a trip to Ikea, dinner at Chuck E Cheese, and lots of crafts- and you've got a pretty good summer :)

It's Hot!

Is anyone even watching the weather report anymore? I think we have had 18 days in a row of temperatures above 100 and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. I actually think they aren't broadcasting new weather reports, they just replay the old ones.

So we've been keeping our cool in the usual way. Playing outside in the mornings, swimming, and staying in the a/c whenever possible.

An impromptu performance- something that happens quite regularly in our home

 Afton has been attending a few camps- one at a dance studio and another at a theater. She has loved both, but the drama queen in her has LOVED the theater camp. I adore her enthusiasm.

Maisy continues to be my sweet sidekick. I love this age. Lots of kisses, hugs, and a few temper tantrums to keep things interesting :) 

Look how long her hair is now! 

 Before long Afton will be starting Kindergarten and the chaos of life will pick back up. So for now, I suppose we are happy to hold on to summer- heat and all- for a little longer.

Fourth of July 2011

Three full days of celebrating the Fourth of July... and today I needed a nap! Here is what got me so tired :)

On Saturday we had over a few friends and family for a swim/cook-out.

It seems all of our college friends are now proud parents. So the totals at this party were 15 adults and 14 kiddos, they almost have us out-numbered!!!

On Sunday we went to Town Square for crafts, games (Afton loves them!) and the fireworks.

Afton is still over-coming her fireworks fear. But by the end of the night, she was able to enjoy them, with her ears plugged :)

Happily, she still is the "Sparkler Queen".

Maisy loved it all. She ran around like a crazy woman.

Sunday we spent the day eating and swimming at my Mom's house. 

And the 4th wouldn't have been complete without some pool volleyball. 

 Hope you had a great weekend too :)
