Deep Creek!

It's hard to believe that it is the end of July and we have only been to Deep Creek once this year. :( We packed a lot into 4 days...

We loved how the temperature kept dropping as we made our way up the mountain. 81 degrees was wonderful!

Our first stop was the house. We dropped off our stuff, took out our bathing suits and headed for the beach!

Next, of course, was Brenda's. Yummy!

We stayed close to home the rest of the weekend because I wasn't feeling well.

We played in the pool!

Read books!

Played some games!

Ate ice cream by moonlight!


And ended the weekend with a sick Binny. :(

I was sad that Em and I were sick for our only trip to Deep Creek but we still had fun!

Em and Addy both ended up with Roseola. 104 degree fever for 5 days then a rash. Thankfully it's over!

Em is sick, again. Today we went to the doctor and she just has a virus. While we were there they weighed her and she finally weighs 20 pounds!!

We visited the airport in Frederick today!! It is really hot out so we didn't last long. We did get to see a few airplanes and a helicopter take off and land.

Here is Em watching the planes! Lots of screaming and finger pointing at the ski!

Apparently there was a 3.6 earthquake in Maryland at 5:00 am. We had no clue! The whole house stayed sound asleep!

Addyson made a tower while I was putting away laundry.

Can't beat a cake box tower complete with letters, animals, and a cinnamon sugar shaker (it was somewhere in the back)!

Boune U!

We drove by Bounce U today to see if it might me open. We got there at 12:15 and as luck would have it Preschool Playdate started at 12:30! So for 2 hours Addy and Em got to jump, slide, climb, play, and it a snack! It was the best $9 we could have spent!


Em and I must have gone down this slide 20 times. She loved every minute of it!

Addy eating her snack!

Mimi and Addy playing basketball!

We also had lunch out with Mimi!

Someone was very tired!

We had an AWESOME day!!!!

Slow Down!

Summer is going way too fast. I wish I could slow down the days, remember every second, sit and hold my babies, play and play and play. I love being home with my babies and I am already dreading going back to work. I love my girls and the fact that for 10 weeks a year I get to be a stay at home mom. I'm thankful that I have a job that allows me to have this long stretch of time with my girls. If I have to work at least teaching has it's perks!

Some happenings of this week...

Em "helping"!

"Mama, I hear a plane."

Addy packed 2 curling irons in her backpack for our trip to Wal Mart. She was going to take her "class" to Wal Mart and take them to the toy isle. I'm still not sure why she needed the curling irons, maybe she is in cosmetology school!

Addy eating breakfast and watching TV. When your sick your wish is my command! But I do draw the line at eating in the family room. Limits people, limits!

Daddy isn't going to Florida, again, without Em!

On it!

Me: "Addy, can you run upstairs and get some socks for Em?"

Addy: "Sure, Mom, on it!"

Me: {laughing} "What?"

Addy: "I'm on it, Mom!"

Where does she come up with this stuff?

A summer cold has hit the girls. Being sick means lots of TV watching, couch time, and pretty much doing whatever they want. Addy ate breakfast yesterday sitting at the kitchen counter, with the TV turned so she could watch. I put my foot down at her eating in the living room! We didn't get to go to the Damascus parade last night or our third of four fireworks but it was nice to be at home doing nothing but snuggling. I think I am suppose to be happy that they are sick at the same time...don't people have chicken pox parties to give each other the sickness? No parties here, but we have two sick babies.

100 degrees or more

"Seriously Hot" could have been another title or maybe "Too Hot" or "Get in the Pool". Any of those would work.

We have spent the 100+ degree days in the pool. I think that swimming lesson might be paying off. Addy puts her face in the water, holds her breath, and kicks...that's progress!

Em loves the pool too! And eating of course!

2 down 2 to go!

On the fourth we spent the day swimming, eating and playing! At the
end of the night we went to watch fireworks in Frederick. After lots
of circles and full parking garages we finally found a spot to park
and started walking with the crowds. Addy saw an ice cream truck so we
stopped and waited and waited to get our ice cream. It was really
getting dark and there was no inch of grass to stand on, so we parked
the stroller and Em, sat Addy in her chair, opened up ice creams and
waited. When the fireworks started they were right above us. I don't
think we could have found a better spot to watch!

Next weekend we have 2 more shows! So far Cattail Creek had the best

1 of 4

We went to Cattail Creek last night for the first of four planned
fireworks shows! Addy had 2 snowcones (one strawberry and one orange),
did a spin art, got a puppy tattoo, got a balloon dog and sword, got
another balloon dog...thanks to a very nice daddy who spent most of
his night standing in line again after the first one popped, ate
dinner, and played. Em ate her way around the party...popcorn, dinner,
cookies, watermellon, if someone handed it to her she was eating it.

And of course, we watched an awesome fireworks show! Em and Addy loved

Just Chillin'

Give Em food and she is happy!
