Summer Fun

Between the TX heat and being sooooo pregnant we haven't done anything too exciting this summer! But I thought I would share a few pictures . . .

I mentioned to my friend Jackie that Mckinley didn't have a tutu, so she made one for her! She loves it . . .



This girl would drink 20 juice boxes a day if we let her. I used to give her "juice" in a sippy cup . . about 99% water with a splash of juice. But since she discovered juice boxes she is no longer interested in anything in a sippy cup, except milk. So, I buy those Capri Sun Roaring Waters . . flavored water so not as much juice. And I get the Motts for Totts, which is juice mixed with water . . but I know she still gets a lot of juice (sugar!) throughout the day with as much as she drinks!
I found this hat at Gymboree on clearance for 17 cents! She loves it!!

Happy 4th of July!!
Our neighborhood put on a great 4th party . . bounce houses, bbq, water slide, a band, and of course fireworks! It was a lot of fun, but HOT!!








Yummy! Sweet tea!!


Since I am usually the one taking pictures, there are hardly any with me in them! Here is a lovely 8 1/2 mo. pregnant profile shot that I didn't know Trent was taking! Check out that belly - HUGE!


Not quite as large from behind . . .


Silly Uncle Walker!




Dancin and waiting for the fireworks to start.

Mckinley actually stayed awake this year for the fireworks, until after 10 pm!!



Even though I'm tired and hot and really just want to lounge on the couch, our days are better if I muster up the energy and get Mckinley out of the house. So, we've been going to the park behind our house (when it's not too hot) or the neighborhood pool or just filling up the baby pool in the back yard. Mckinley seems to love all 3! And since the switch to the big girl bed, she sleeps a lot better if we wear her out playing outside.
