Pool Time

We all enjoyed the pool together yesterday morning. I love our neighborhood pool. It is close to us, quiet, and clean. Makenah has really come to like the water this summer, and we had a good time cooling off together.

All ready to get in...
She likes to walk all around the little pool. By herself of course. So, we just follow her all around. 
Stopping to wave at a truck driving by. 
She's good at splashing. 
Getting silly with Daddy.
The reason you follow close by...she's still a bit wobbly in all that water, and occasionally will slip. After the initial recovery, she's all smiles. 
In the big pool.
There was one other little girl and her mom there. Makenah kept a close eye on them.
Big girl drying off.
Perfect morning together.

Backyard water fun!

Yesterday we got together with lots of friends from church and went to a backyard water play time. It was SO much fun! They had baby pools, slip 'n slides, big blow up slides, and sprinklers all set up for the kids. Makenah seemed like such a big girl, walking around the yard, checking everything out, and splashing in the pools.
In the shade getting ready to go play with friends Will and Remi.
With Danni and Remi.
 Makenah liked to go in and out...
Our friend Remi! She is so cute!
This ball was popular. She would dip it in the water, and then stick it in her mouth and suck out water. Ug.
 They had some neat things set up to play on.
 She was all over, exploring and having fun.
 The ball again. :)
 I took Makenah down the slide and onto the slip 'n slide. Even I had fun doing that! Who doesn't like a slip 'n slide?!

A sunny Monday

Just here to say 'Hello' to another week! 
We wrapped up a good weekend, and look forward to another great week to come. Time off for Bryan, splashing at the pool, seeing friends, grilling, lots of play time, and much more!
Makenah can hardly wait!
Hope your week is a great one!

Baby Love

This little girl has a lot of love to give. 
Casey is the recipient of much love lately. 
She snuggles up on him, takes him his toys, gives him pats, sits on him, throws her food off the table for him, and this morning she was giving him kisses. 
 We think it's pretty cute how she is a little loving mother to her dollies, too. She likes to rock them and sing the "night night" song, she carries them around, and pretends to dress them and change their diapers. On this particular evening, Bitty was very popular. They even wrestled. :) 
Her sweetness is something so special to us. We are so thankful for her.

All smiles

Not only does Makenah keep things exciting around here, she keeps it fun and happy too. She's so busy, into everything, and always on the move. The best part is, she usually has a smile on her face!
These were from after church last Sunday. 
She kept taking Casey's leash over to him and pretending to clip it on to his collar so she could take him on a walk. Bryan tied the leash to her puppy, "Little Casey," and she pulled him all round the living room.

Shout out to Uncle Brad!

Makenah would like to give a KCUMB 'shout out' to her uncle Brad! He's in medical school in Kansas City, and has been working really hard lately! We got to see him when we were in Garden City in June, and it was fun spending time together. They already have a special relationship--he is so fun and sweet with her. 
Brad is helping Makenah represent his school!
Love you, Brad!
