We hope you had a fabulous 4th of July. We've had a great July!
The day before the 4th, our Grandpa Bob and Grandma Lois came to see us. We don't get to see them very often, so we were happy to see them!
Sunday we played with them in the morning, then we went to Ron & Carols to play with other kids while Mom & Dad played volleyball. We always have fun when we go to to Ron & Carols. We were sad to go, but happy to go home to see Grandma & Grandpa.
Monday, we played with Grandpa while Daddy took Grandma shopping. She came back with all sorts of fun stuff for us - lacing cards, learning games & puzzles - even a drill with screws for us to learn colors & patterns.
After we ate, we left for Wild Rumpus. We've been there before, but it's such a cool place that we love to go back. Grandma bought some more books and Grandpa read to us after we visited all the animals in the store. We even found out that they have a fish tank in the bathroom. But, you can only see it in the dark...
Tuesday, we got to go see our friends at daycare while Grandma & Grandpa saw the Dead Sea scrolls and went shopping. Mom & Dad picked us up early so we could hang out with Grandma & Grandpa before we went to baseball. At baseball, we got our baseball jerseys! Yeah! Then, after baseball, we went to the pool. We got to go swimming with Grandma & Grandpa. (We love the pool!!!)
Grandma & Grandpa left Wednesday to see our other cousins, Michael, Michelle & Alex.
But they came back Saturday. We went to get our pictures taken so we were all together! We were so good - Mommy and Daddy gave us fruit snacks and raisins because we were so good to wear what Mommy asked, smile for the photographer and stand where the photographer wanted us to stand. Grandma was very happy with the pictures that we took.
After pictures, we went home and got to play with our cousins and eat with them. We were bummed when they had to go but Grandma & Grandpa stayed so they could nap.
While everyone napped, we went to play with a the girl who lives a few houses down from us. That was fun - she got a new bike, so we saw her new bike and Hannah played with dolls with her.
Today, we had to say goodbye to Grandma & Grandpa. They had to go home, and Daddy found out he's very sick, so we played with Mommy for most of the day. We played on our swings for a long time this morning, and went to Menards with Mommy & Daddy after our naps. We go there so often, we can read Menards' sign and know our way there. Hopefully Daddy gets better and we don't get bronchitus and sinus sickness from him!
After a few exciting weeks, we're ready for things to settle down and relax for a while. We're learning to play lacrosse at daycare and baseball on Tuesdays. We're looking forward to some relaxing time at home to hang out with Mom & Dad and just play with our toys.
