The Crab and the Octopus

Summertime is busy. 
Fun busy!! 

Lia is having a great time learning to swim with her Opa. It was one of Opa's goals for his summer - teach Lia to swim. 
This little girl would not leave the little pool on the first day 
And now she walks in the big pool like she owns it! 
She can't wait for the rest periods to end so she can get back at it. 

She's become quite the little swimmer but if you ask her she is the "crab" and Opa is the "octopus"

They are both loving their pool time together and we are so happy they are creating such fun summer memories.

Ballet moves

Lia has a flare for fashion- does she not? 
I mean crab pj's, a sparkly black tutu and 4th of July sunglasses screams fashionista, right?! 
And check out these ballet moves.

God bless ..

Last night while saying our nightly prayers I asked Lia "Are there any animals you want to God Bless?" 

She looked at me after a minute and said "Yaya, I wanna God Bless chickens and cows and..."

I meant for her to think about the pets/animals she was around like Lucky the cat, Oreo Skye my sisters dog, or Otis the neighbors dog we visit with! 

She literally started naming animals!! 
So cute- straight out of the mouths of babe. 

These are the moments to remember

Our 4th of July 2014

We had a great holiday weekend! 
Lia LOVED the fireworks! The seats were fantastic - you could feel the booms in your chest and the soundtrack to the fireworks was perfect. 
We hung out with family and Lia had a blast with her cousins Lexi and Caitlin. 
If you ask Lia the best part of the weekend, she will tell you every time; 

Fireworks 

And Lexi 

And Caitlin (w/Samantha - Caitlin's friend)

We also had some fun before the fireworks. 

We saw a parade, 

we waved our flags, 

we danced to the bands, 

and even cheered with the cheerleaders! 

It was a great weekend- the best 4th of July celebration and Birthday ever. 
 (I think I say that every year!) 

God Bless America my home sweet home
