Summer Fun

This is a lot of pictures, but I had to post them all. The girls have decided to make the linen closet their hideout. It's actually really funny. They get in together with their flashlights and close the door. Riley has not been in the mood to have her picture taken lately. That is why she is missing. (She just saw me typing this and said "Oh, I changed my mind. Remember I just wanted you to take my picture on another day?!?!")
My mom had a garage sale last week and Holly and I helped . As you can see the girls LOVE Parker. If she was allowed Regan would pick him up and carry him off.
Riley is very concerned that Parker is happy at all times. She loves to give him his "paci".
I love this picture of Parker! Whitney showed me how to make my camera change the colors to black and white. You can definitely see how much he has grown in 6 weeks! He looks more and more like his dad as he gets older.

The next two pictures require a little story. The girls love to "take care" of their babies. They have all the stuff that goes with every baby doll imaginable. I started letting them have real baby powder left over from when they were infants. It was just under a sink and not being used so I thought they would love it. They did, and were doing great only using a little bit on each baby. After I thought they were doing really well, I just left it in their room so they could play with it. Regan took full advatage.

She still has baby powder all over her.
We have also been having Beauty Shop in our living room where they put lotion on me, fix my hair, and give me massages. Obviously the massage is my favorite part!

Sunday we went to see Wall E. It was cute. The girls have been waiting so long for it to come out! Our church had fireworks that night and the girls loved it!
Riley was just happy she got sugar.
Parker. Cute as usual!

We've been busy!

This summer is flying by! We have been so busy that I can't believe it is already July! Last month, we took the girls on their first camping trip! I camped a lot when I was little, so I was really excited. The girls favorite thing was fishing with the boys. They reeled the fish in (I was too afraid that someone would lose an eyeball if they cast themselves!) and both of them actually held the fish to return it to the water.

Our next adventure was back to Branson with Jason's family. The girls love their cousin Ethan! We went to all the parks, Talking Rocks Cavern and Predator World. They fed the sharks, sting rays and sea turtles. At Silver Dollar City, Regan rode her first roller coaster. She has been wanting to the last 2 summers, but she was too short. Now I have no excuse for her not to ride. When she came off the first thing she said was, "Daddy, can I go again?" and she went 3 times in a row!
White Water was so fun! This year the girls were so brave and went down slides by themselves. You can see by their faces they loved it!

Only 11 days until they are 4!
