Sisters at Play

I love how close the girls are with each other. They play together all day long. Of course they bicker and want each others toys, but for the most part they get along great!

I love these pictures of them. They both just crawled into this inflatable car pit that I now use to store the stuffed animals and started showing me some of their favorites. I could just hear a bunch of giggles and happy screams.

Adults can learn a lot from children...I certainly have! We don't need big cars and fancy things to be happy. Just surround yourself with good people and smiles and you'll be rich in life and happiness. This is what I've learned since becoming a parent. The girls don't care if we eat fancy steak or drive an Escalade. They could eat Cheerios all day (not that I let them!!) and walk everywhere and still be happy. They are amazing.

Holiday Weekend

Our 4th of July wasn't too eventful. We still don't know many people over in this area so we haven't had any big get togethers like we would probably have done had we been back at home.

Instead we cooked some burgers and dogs at home for lunch. My husband makes GREAT burgers! He cooked some onions right into them and it was way too yummy.

Later in the day we had planned to head out to the fireworks show at the big local park. When we got there there were SO many cars already. We couldn't find a spot. Events also seem to bring out the crazy in people so, sadly, we gave up on the fireworks and went to go play at another smaller park.

There was no one else there and we had a lot of fun running around and having the park to ourselves. It was great. Kylie loves to swing and Alana is becoming more daring on the playground. She used to want to hold my hand when climbing up, but she wants to be a big girl now!

It may not have been the festive 4th of July that I would have wanted, but we still had a great day spending time together as a family. That is what really matters.
