Splendid Sunday in the Sun...

This morning I played with daddy and went grocery shopping with mommy... nothing really "blog worthy"... but mom made up for it this afternoon when I got up from my nap...

"What do you have planned mama?"


1st some finger painting! Mom bought me a roll of butcher paper at the craft store and taped it to the lid of my sand table... which is now also my art table!

I knew just what to do...


Have I mentioned I'm starting art classes next week? Mom thought it would be good for me to practice before we start...


I didn't mind getting dirty at all...


Adding some Barney purple to the mix...


I was so proud of my painting...


Finally mom helped me add a hand print...


Ta-da!


That's SO neat!


All done!


Here is my masterpiece... things sure have changed since mom was a kid... now you can just take a picture of the artwork and the picture becomes the art... mom has seen calendars made of children's art, coffee table books and even postcards... She's thinking she will collect some and then make magnets out of them... neat idea huh?


My hand print...


To wash off... I got in the pool!


Maggie is the only one brave enough to swim in the big pool right now, it's still REALLY cold!


I even got to have a messy treat... a popsicle!


YUMMY!


The last time I had one I cried when it melted on me, but I didn't mind at all today since I was already wet... mom is restricting all popsicles to the pool...


Dad got one too... he had done some serious yard work while I was napping and needed to cool off...


This is the life!


I also got to break in my new pool slide!


I was super proud of myself that I could climb the slide...


Watch me slide...

and swim...

The finger painting and pool wore me out... so I watched Barney while mom finished up making dinner...


I got a Barney doll yesterday... he sings "I Love You"... mom says that Barney deserves his own special post on my blog because I love him so much, so watch for that this week... let's just say that he is my new best friend...


After dinner we had diaper box races around the living room...


When mom was uploading the video from the pool she found these from when I watched So You Think You Can Dance on Friday... I love that show!

I'm ready for the Top 20 to start performing!

Will's Birthday & Kellerfest...

This morning was Will's 2nd Birthday Party... Remember when I went to Will's 1st birthday party? It was my first birthday party ever!


It was at Dove Park, but I had a new surprise when we got there... they have dolphins now!


Here I am with the birthday boy Will...


We've both grown up a lot since last year's party...


It was REALLY hot outside so mom kept taking me over to get water...


This is my newest thing... I do this and say "up, up, up"...


We ran into mom's friend Shelly and her daughter Phoebe... she was enjoying the dolphins... me not so much... I never went near them...


I prefer cooling off in the shade!


Tonight we went to Kellerfest with the Olivier's


Mommy and I were grooving to the live music!


Nathan's dad got us some mini corn dogs... YUM!


But Nathan preferred his mom's big corn dog...


This was Nathan's favorite activity of the night... he went back and forth over and over again...


While I danced! I kept asking Carrie to dance too...


Nathan totally wore himself out walking!


I kept on dancing...


Daddy helped me work on my jumps...


This picture makes mom laugh because it looks like dad just caught the winning fish at a fishing tournament...


I love festivals!!


Mom found my sunglasses to keep me entertained...


and the megaphone I got for free... I said "ba-ba" into it like I do into the microphone...


Finally Nathan was ready to dance with me!


Mom's best attempt at a picture of us together...


After the last petting zoo incident a couple of weeks ago...

Remember...


Mom wanted me to try it again immediately so I don't build up an unnatural fear of barnyard animals...

No fear...


I even pet a few (though mom had to save me from getting pooped on)...


On to the carousel...

Look how much Carrie and Nathan were enjoying themselves!!!


and me and my mommy...


This is where it went wrong... Nathan's horse came LOOSE! Runaway horse! Can you believe it? Luckily Carrie was able to keep it from coming down completely until the ride stopped... crazy carnival rides!!!


Our last stop was Jason's attempt to win us some stuffed animals... he's STRONG!


Can you tell it was a long/fun day??? I was POOPED!
