Part of being at Nana and Papa's house is getting to ride all of their cars. Well, I had this brilliant idea that Paige should take my sister's dog, Lucky, for a ride. I think everyone thought it was hilarious, but my sister and Lucky!
A nice surprise we found out when we got there was that my grandma was coming to visit from Kansas. We don't get to see her very often and it's always a special time when we get to see her. I'm so glad that my girls had another chance to get to know their Great Grandma V. She is so great at engaging the girls and my girls truly love her.
Here she is helping Alaina into the stirrups.
I just love this picture of Alaina with Grandma. Alaina is so into whatever she is telling her.
Sidenote for Grandma: The other night Mark and I heard fireworks going off. We didn't realize it, but our town was having a fireworks show. Alaina was still awake so I ran upstairs and grabbed her. We could see the big ones from our deck. She was telling me how pretty they were then she said, "We saw fireworks at Nana and Papa's house." I affirmed her that she was right. Then she added, "with Amber and Great Grandma!" I'm so glad she remembers that and that you were there. Thanks for making the trip up to see us. It really did mean a lot to me and my family.

We spent Sunday afternoon playing outside.
Daddy spent a lot of it pushing the girls down the slip and slide.
They loved it!
Needing to try it on her own!

Sparklers before the fireworks!
