Shout Hooray!

Lizzy turned the magic 2 on the 13th. We had a wonderful time decorating the house. Lizzy blew out the candles before we started singing, so we did it again. She let us sing to her the second time and then blew out the candles. She loved the frosting. She also loved the Winne the pooh card we got her. I love her face in the video.

We decided to take a trip up to Kirtland Ohio since Daniel had a few days off of work. What we planned as a leisurely trip turned into a 3 day dervish. We went up to Ann Arbor to stay with Clinton and Janet on the 9Th, arriving just in time for a scrumptious dinner prepared by Janet. Then we took the walking tour of their neighborhood. It is a cute area with a house boasting an homage to the Greeks. Amazing. I wish I had taken a picture. Then we left the next morning for Kirtland. Luckily I had enough cash on me for the toll roads. That was fun. It was about three and a half hours down to Kirtland and when we arrived I was expecting something like Nauvoo, But it was a bustling town. It actually took us a bit to find the temple. We had come just in time for the next tour which was nice. The Community of Christ runs the temple and don't allow photography inside, but I got a few shots of the outside. Then we went to the LDS welcome center and toured the sites in the historic downtown. It was a lot of fun. We drove strait home arriving at 2:30 in the morning. That was a long drive, luckily we could rest the next day. I was exhausted.

Summer loving

So yesterday I took Lizzy to the pool for the first time. It is an outdoor pool that is more like a park with sprayers and a foot of water everywhere. I had never seen such a thing either. It took Lizzy a little while to warm up to the idea of sliding and playing in water, but once she did, boy I could not get her to leave! I slathered us both with sunscreen, but still managed to burn my back. Thank goodness for Lavender! It was fun, the place was packed! I thing everyone had the same idea. I saw a lot of friends there which made it all the more enjoyable, and Daniel got to rest in peace for once!

Now What?

School is over! Yay, we even had some sunshine so I put the sprinkler on and let the kids play. Little did I know how disastrous this would ...
