I think everyone had a great time! We will definitely plan another play date again soon, maybe before all the crazy school schedules start up!

Saturday afternoon we met up with our Sunday school class for a farewll party. We said good bye to some sweet friends of ours who are missionaries.

You have a few new tricks these days. You LOVE to stand up. You can't pull up completely on your own, but you have some strong legs and love to use them. You think you are big stuff when you stand on my legs or stand by the couch or a chair:). You just look around and flash a big grin at whoever is looking! Ha! You also LOVE to giggle. You have always been a happy baby and you are usually pretty easy to make smile, but to hear you laugh just makes me all giddy inside! You laugh when we make silly faces, or when Bubbie wrestles or plays with you!
You are starting to NOT like you car seat. Whenever I put you in it to go somewhere you arch your back and cry. You usually calm down as soon as we get moving though. You are also a mamma's girl. You love for me to hold you...a lot:). You are starting to want me and only me! Whenever someone else holds you, I can see you look to see if I am close by and you usually start to pout a bit and reach for me!
I love you Brooklyn Bear! You are growing up so big!
I am so thankful that God gave me such a precious little girl! I love being your mommy!
Love you forever,

And Jake and I got to ride the ferris wheel together!
Our tradition is to have my brother, sisters, and nephews come with us to the festival and then wake up nice and early to watch the big parade! We met Matt's parents there and ended up sitting with several of our friends too!
Kelly and Jake having some fun together and Allison and Tim too!
Corban and Riley...
Jake and his best buddy, Jay...
Monday morning was more fun...
Our neighborhood had it's first annual 4th of July parade! All the kids decorated their bikes, scooters, strollers and pets and we all marched along the streets to the pool!
I really like this picture of the four of us...
Jake and Brooklyn rode in our little red wagon:)
I think Brooklyn loves to 4th just like her momma! Love her!
After a hot morning, the pool was all we could think about! We are so lucky that my mom has a pool, so instead of swimming in our neighborhood pool, we spent the day at my parents.
Everyone took a dip.
Brooklyn loves to swim too, but really enjoyed the float!
She is working on her tan for the beach:)
We headed home with everyone worn out from a really fantastic weekend!
Happy 4th of July, 2011!
