I know I haven't posted in forEVER but we've been so busy! My family was here all last week and I didn't do anything! I didn't even get pictures! So I have to wait for Geri to email me some from my mom's camera. We had a really fun week though. We went to the splash park a few times and Lily swam every day at the hotel pool. She LOVES the water, she jumps right in and doggie paddles and spins around in the water. She is totally care-free, which is a little scary because she got in the pool without floaties one time and sank straight down. I was right next to her though, so I pulled her up and I don't think she even knew what happened. But we did have a talk about only getting in the pool with arm floaties. Anyway, we also had a few picnics at the park and just played all week! They left on Saturday and took Geri with them. I don't know what I'll do with out her for the next 6 weeks!
Anyway, Michael's mom and sisters will be here all this week. Then in two weeks we go to New York for our Howe family reunion! We can't wait!
Oh, and I have to tell you that in my family we all have nick names. People might think we're weird but I love it. Anyway, right now Lily is pulling on my arm and saying "Kiki, I want chocolate milk" I guess with all my family here she forgot that my name is Mommy! Okay, I'm off to get some chocolate milk:)

The Fourth of July!!!

At the parade in the morning

At the park

Watching fireworks. Kaylee was a little worried:)

Rachel embroidered this CUTE onesie for Kaylee!

We had such a great day yesterday! We watched the parade in the morning and looked at the booths in the park. Then we rode the carousel and played at the splash park. Lily has been going down the slide all by herself every time! We had some yummy Philippine food and then we went home and took the longest nap EVER! Then we went to the rodeo and watched the fireworks from the fairgrounds. Afterwards we found a firework stand and bought $5 worth of fireworks. We lit them in the street by our apartment complex. It was so much fun!
