When Grandma Comes to Town...

We get to do all sorts of things we don't normally do when Grandma comes to town (with Mom's approval of course)!  We get to have treats, play on the iPad, go out to dinner, and buy enormous "Pudgy Puppies".  Luckily Grandma only splurged on one puppy though because we're not sure if our house is big enough to hold another one.

It is now 2-3 as I lost my second tooth tonight.  You can't even really tell that I lost one being that it hung on for so long that the grown up tooth grew in behind it.  I'm excited though because this means the tooth fairy will be visiting tonight!!!

Ice Cream Truck!!!!

For the first summer ever the ice cream truck stopped at our house!  We've heard that magical music a few times in years past, but it never seemed to be able to get close enough to our house.  This summer they must have found their way because the truck has gone by a few times now.  The first few times we missed it, but this time we heard it from a mile away, and we waited in the driveway ready to strike.  The minute Daddy spotted it he waved the man down and just like in our dreams he pulled right up to the end of the driveway where we just stared in awe at all of the stickers on the side of the truck.  When it came time to choose I went with the Cotton Candy Twist and Lily chose the Bubble Gum Bar.  The experience alone made the ice cream taste that much better!!!

Mom was thinking of quitting her day job to just do manicures now that we've discovered how to do watermelon nails!  Had you going there for a minute, but I sure wish it was true!

Hanging with AJ

Even though it was a thousand degrees out today, we decided to go hang out at Grandpa Wayne's park for a bit with AJ.  We tried the playground, but it was too hot, so we headed off down the trail along the river to see what we could find.  I was overjoyed when I discovered a lone turkey feather.  You may remember, I was quite excited to find two turkey feathers when we were up at the cottage over the 4th of July.  After leaving one at Grandpa Wayne's grave, I was disappointed to lose my last one as it flew out the car window while driving one day.  Mom had said that I would find another one some day, and I guess today was that day, and one of the best things about it was that I found it at Grandpa's park!

Daddy was out of town this weekend, and Mommy had something for work in Appleton so we headed up to Green Bay to hang out with our cousins.  We had a BBQ at Uncle Steve's and Aunt Claire's, and for once in my life playing trumped eating!  Bubba, AJ, Elizabeth, John, and James were all able to be there, and we played Ghosts in the Graveyard, Kick the Can, Hot Potato, Hide and name it we probably played it!
