Superhero Weekend

We have lots of fun in KidZone at our church.

Who is the only REAL Superhero?  That's right, Jesus! But Mommy and Fi had a good time being Wonder Women.

A Trip to Target

Just your normal...trying on shoes.

Kristin Munson would be proud of those heels!

Thank goodness for bakery samples.

The girls love checking out the gift registries.

Hmmm...what to buy?

Bix is wondering what is taking this girl soooo long.

At last...focus.  Bix said she was searching Auntie B's registry so she could buy "sister" a gift.

In case you were wondering...yes, the girls get dressed entirely by themselves.

Who Do You Hang With?

I spent the evening with self-proclaimed "Princess Leia"

And "Princess Darth Vader"

May the Force be with you.

To the Dentist

Time for Mommy and Bix to head to the dentist.  Guess Fi was just happy she was only along for the ride.

A little skeptical.  Bix was asking LOTS of questions.

Like, "Why is this thing so heavy?!"

 Miss Angie let Fi control the button for the x-rays.

Oh, these lights are so bright.

 
All clean.  Looking good!

A trip to the Treasure Box for the patient(s).

Then an ice cream treat for everyone.

Braum's...of course.

Let's Go to the Park

It is hot. We can't stay in the pool all day.  So what to do?  Go to the park, and then go swimming.  The girls got dressed, and were ready to go.




 Seriously...it is hot.

 Bix is serious about conquering the monkey bars.

The girls wore themselves out.

Let's get in the water!

Daddy's Birthday

Started out like any good birthday should...with a little swimming.

The girls spent the rest of the day planning, decorating, and executing Daddy's party.

We all love him so much!

We even got an almost terrific family picture.  Could you get a little closer Fi?

Happiest Birthday wishes to the best Daddy/husband/friend around!

To the Outlet Mall

We went to find shortie-pajamas for Bix, but the real allure was the coin-operated rides.  The girls know that Mommy doesn't put money in them, but that doesn't stop them from "riding" and enjoying every single one.  Here are just a few...








They asked what this area was, and I said, "Rip-Off City."  As you can see...they agree.

More From the Lake

Best way to start the day after Independence Day?  A slice of America's birthday cake of course.

After a healthy breakfast, it was time for the rest of the poppers!  Bix thought they were a bit loud.

That didn't stop her from getting into them.

Fi was a bit mesmerized. (or was it the sugar coma from her cake?)

This year we took our first trip to the DeSoto Pool.  The girls we so ready!

Bix entered the "Big Splash Contest."  She did not win, but had fun trying.

We think her downfall was taking the lifeguard too seriously when he told them they had to go in feet first.

Fi was swimming all over the pool, and wore herself out.  She needed a rest.

Once discovered, Bix didn't want to be anywhere except on the diving board!

The girls also had some good times hitting the garage sales.

Bix with some of her loot.

 I think Fi went back for more cake (in disguise so we wouldn't stop her)

Family swimming (and fishing)

Floating along.

Fi fishing with Daddy.

The girls even made a new friend.  They are really hoping Tevita's parents get a place nearby.

The most exciting and possibly favorite thing the girls did happened out on the lake. (Bix couldn't wait!)

Fi sat up on top of the cupholders to get a better view.

TUBING!!!

Bix quickly learned all the hand signals, and was constantly giving the "thumbs-up."  She even got brave enough to do this...

Fi went back-and-forth and back-and-forth over wether or nor she was going to try it herself.  You can see how she liked it.

Bix even got to try a little by herself.  She was very determined, and loved every second of it.

A great vacation!

We are tired out.
