Great Lakes, Great Times

I'm having so much fun playing in the water. Let me update you on my adventures. On Friday we got to Grandma and Grandpa J's house. They surprised me with some beach toys and let me play with their hose.

On Saturday I woke up to Aunt Katie, Jenny, and Balex.  We were invited to a family party at Great-Aunt/Uncle Karen's/Pat's house. We almost missed the party. Mom insisted we take a nap. I fought her; I was having too much fun. Well, we ended up falling asleep together. We slept all the way to 5:00 p.m. and the party started at 2. Thankfully they were willing to pull some food back out for us when we got there.

On Sunday we got to Grandma and Grandpa S's lake house. We got on their pontoon boat. At first I was really upset because they made me wear this really uncomfortable straitjacket they referred to as a "life-jacket".  After a while, the curiosity of the boat steering wheel got to me. I helped Uncle Bob drive the boat. I am really skilled at honking the horn.

We all went out to eat and I had a great time getting down and running around while the big people were trying to eat. 

On Monday I got to try the jet ski. It is so fun! I kept telling Dad "more." I had skipped a nap earlier in the day and the purr of the motor was enough to sooth me into a nap. The dogs had a great day too. They got to run around unleashed.

Today we went to the Great Lakes Children's Museum. The best part was getting to play with the water table. When we got back to the house, Dad put me down for my nap. He ended up falling asleep with me. Mom was off doing boring stuff for work on the computer. After the nap, we went on the jet ski again!

Enjoy the pics!

A simple childhood joy.  

Honk - here comes Captain Alden!
Boom, boom! Totally awesome gift from Quinn's Mom, Sarah. Happy 4th of July to all!

A great place to nap.

Great times at the water table.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.


Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.


Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
