Counrty Days

"Country Days" came to town this weekend. Almost every city in Utah comes up with some excuse to have a parade/carnival/other festivities during the summer. This was Reese's first parade. She was nervous during loud entries (like the fire truck, motorcycles and motor magic carpet guys) but by the end of the parade she seemed to be enjoying herself. She especially liked the horses and anyone who threw balls into the crowd. In the end we had a hatfull of candy, two bouncy balls, one foam football and two stress balls.

Thanks, Ally

Last weekend my cousin, Ally, came to stay at my grandparent's house while the rest of her family was out of town. Reese loved having another kid around, even though Ally is quite a bit older.

Ally decided that one of the most fun toys of the weekend was a ball of sticky tac. She formed a hat for her finger and asked me to draw a smiley face on it. Reese had to get in on the action, too. Now that Ally is gone, Reese just likes to draw with pen on her (and my) fingers. Smiley face or scribbles- it doesn't matter.

Hangin' With Aunt Lauren

These pictures were from Memorial Day Weekend. Lauren had some fun with Reese and her camera. Thanks for the pics, Lauren!

Shout out to Will, who passed is HRCI test! (A big exam in the world of Human Resources.) He's been busy with studying, homework and tests in addition to his internship and is doing great. I love you, Sweetheart. I'm proud of you for working so hard.



Grandpa Great

At first Reese would hardly go near Grandpa. This morning she not only gave him a hug when he asked for one, but she sat on his lap and let him look at "Where's Waldo" with her.

Thanks, Grandpa. What a precious moment.

Learning To Use The Big Girl Cup

Reese loves to steal Mamma's juice glass because I usually only give her water in the big girl cup. She had been doing well enough with water that yesterday we gave her her own apple juice- and half of it ended up in her lap.

She also has a tendency to hold the cup in one hand while her attention is on something else, which inevitably leads to disaster.

Smoothies are a little easier not to spill.

Hanging Out

In the room that Reese is staying in at G&G Great's, the walls are decorated with hats. It was only a matter of time before she asked me to let her try them on.

Reese has claimed her own set of playing cards- which comes in really handy when the adults are playing games and Reese doesn't want to be left out.

If you can't tel what she's saying, she's counting to two over and over.

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial day weekend was spend at Grandma and Grandpa Faber's house. It began Thursday with a graduation celebration for my awesome sister Shelly who is now officially a high school graduate.

We tested out the new pool right away. Reese had a good time. We would have gone swimming more, but Will and I got sick on Sunday and spend Monday (the actual holiday) recovering. Reese had been throwing up two days before, but that seemed like it was her only symptom. She didn't act sick or tired or even in discomfort. It was a different story for the adults. Blah.

Happy Birthday, Reese. Reese's birthday is at the time of year when the weather is just starting to get colder. I wanted to get her a ride-on toy so I figured I would get it at the beginning of summer as a early birthday present. That was the idea, anyway. Turns out the toy is too big for her, but she loved it, anyway.

The iPhone

Okay, I guess it's more the I-phone.
