Lily was so excited for vacation..."we going to vacation Mommy? I want to go vacation!" So we went. I did not take nearly as many pictures as we usually do so I apologize that missed almost everyone that was there! Oh well, we have one group shot. It was really the Lily and Carley show the whole week. As Lily said every night when she went to bed...I miss Carley. Carley was her "best friend" all week and it was too much to see them hang. Thanks to Barbara and Skip for the week!
Yes! One group photo!
Daddy doing his exercises with a few joiners....
Skipping rocks! The Griswold kids are goooooood.
Lily actually took her clothes off and got into the lake which provided much amusement to the rest of us. Hey, that counts as a bath right? Right.
This was pretty much the scene all week. Once I took Lily's hand and she said...ok, you can take Carley's spot I guess. So easily replaced!
And Papa and Grandma Judy came on Papa's birthday! Although Mommy forgot, Lily made up for it with her song....
We are all ready for summer and the parties have begun. Lily really loves people and although we may roll our eyes and shake our heads, we are so proud of her people skills. Often times she needs to be reminded to say thank you and please and complements to her may be ignored, but other than that we are fairly pleased. Here are some photos of the past few weeks......
First stop, Maureen and Matt's for a BBQ with friends. Here is one with her buddies Jake and Sadie and new friend Cormack.
4th of July at Grandma and Grandpas! It is such a great view and we are glad this tradition started. Although last year Lily seemed to think the fireworks were AMAZING, this year she seemed to think they were good. Probably because animation has made her think that the fireworks can create images of dragons, etc., right Otto?
The Birthday Party Day! We had two birthday's back to back, Jake and Jack. (I knew I could make that rhyme somehow.) Lily went to wish her friend Jack Hills a Happy Birthday at the Playseum. The Hills had brought us there once before and we think the place is so great. So much stuff to do and the Hills made it super fun!
Her first stop was obviously to get her nails did! What color? Glitter yellow of course. Duh!
Next stop: Making cupcakes!
On our way to the next party, Lily asked.."Will there be beds at this party?", with her eyes barely open. In 10 or so years we will be really nervous about this question but at right now it makes us laugh. She somehow rallied and probably because the Edelsteins throw a mean birthday party! This is the "catch the balloon of your friends" game, or some other catchy name I don't know. Although it seemed the older kids got the concept, the littler ones still had fun.
Waiting for the cake.....
The cake that incorporated the Surfer Astronauts theme.
More pictures from the past few weeks... http://picasaweb.google.com/mwbowers/2010July#
Lily had been doing this montage for about 20 minutes until I decided to get the camera. She gets a bit bored by the end but I think the montage gives you an idea of her performance.
