karis sitting in (well, "on", rather) the fountain

Squee! They're so cute. This was last month at Blue Lake, my friend Summer just emailed it to me this week, what a fun memory to get in my inbox!

4th of July

(ok, this shot i just threw in b/c it cracks me up that Karis pulled her pants up all Irkle style after she went potty!LOL! she looks like a little old man!)

(this was my shirt when i was wee, it says " I nurse for a living")

We had a fabulous 4th, celebrating with our good friends Brett, Angie and Catie on their boat, then coming home for BBQ and fireworks. One of my all time fave days ever!

Zoo Class

Here is a picture another mom snapped on her phone of Maddy doing shaving cream art at a zoo class. There are a few classes this summer for preschool kids, this one was a two hour class about sea lions and sea otters. We both really enjoyed it and loved having some Mama Maddy time together. We have a few more scattered throughout the summer, our zoo is so full of fun things to learn about!
