This & That

Our Katie always amazes us with her creativity.  The other day, she was inspired to create "Robot Cards," similar to baseball cards.  Each one has a name & different look.  The back of each card describes what skill or item they have and whether or not they are a 'hero' or 'villain.'  Very cool.

The other day, she was excited to meet a girl who has played in the Little League World Series...with the boys!  She has played in Saudi Arabia since they are living there for her father's job.  She was excited to get a signed baseball from her!  

Our sweet Ellie loves being a helper, even if it means taking out the recycling or trash!
The other day, the girls & I met some friends at the Blue Bell factory and enjoyed a tour, complete with ice cream at the end.  It was fun & yummy!
These 2 were very excited to be there!

 Sweet sisters!

 Loving it!

 Funny, funny girl!

"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"

On the 4th of July, we took the girls to a water park in a small nearby town.  It was a fun family day (well, except for the horrible sunburn I got, but that's just ME!)

This ride didn't turn out to be Katie's favorite slide!  Poor thing, I watched as it knocked her around pretty good and sure enough, once she stopped & got out, she was crying because she'd hit her head.  Personally, I watched quite a few little kids going down that thing and felt there should be a rather high weight limit since the little ones seemed to get knocked around a lot, BUT...oh well!  She only went down that one once!  Chris liked it. 
 This one was enjoyed by Gracie, Katie, & Chris many times.

 Ellie enjoyed splashing in the overflow water from this slide as we waited on the big ones to slide down! 

I didn't get a picture of Ellie in the kiddie areas, but there were a lot of areas suitable for her age which was great.  We went back & forth from the big slides for the big kids (& Chris) to the kiddie area, with the lazy river in the middle for all of us!
Gracie is happy with her new zebra fingernails!  Ah,'s her favorite thing right now!
Isn't this pretty....a Pinterest recipe!  It was yummy & super easy!  Not quite as good as Monkey or Gorilla Bread but easier & less time consuming. 

haha.....our sweet Ellie isn't ALWAYS sweet!  ;)
