Hamma Comes to Town!

JD's mom, aka, Hamma, got to spend 10 days with us last week. We had a wonderful visit, and Morgan had so much fun with her! We are lucky she's a teacher and she can come from Seattle to spend some time with us every summer.

We went to Nick Jr. Storytime Live down at the Hobby Center. There were 4 short little plays...Backyardigans, Kai-Lan, then Wonder Pets and Dora. Morgan did NOT like the first 2 but loved the Wonder Pets and LOVED Dora! We wish it would have been 2 hours of just Dora..she was singing the songs and clapping along. It was so fun to see her so excited. She hasn't really seen the other shows, so we wondered if that's why she didn't like them.




She was exhausted when we went to lunch!


More fun with Hamma:


Hamma bought her first pair of boots!


Spent a day down in Kemah (Note to self: Do not go to Kemah during the day. In August. Ever.)


First time bowling!

1st day of Flips Gymnastics

Today was Morgan's first day of gymnastics and SHE LOVED IT! I wasn't sure how she'd do, and she cried for the first minute...but after holding the teacher's hand for a few minutes, she did GREAT! She was so happy and jumping around everywhere. She followed directions pretty well for the most part and just was so excited to be there! I am so excited for this new adventure for her! I'm sure you'll be hearing lots about 'Gy-nastics' as she calls it! There's 2 really cute videos after the pictures....

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer!

So long since I've posted last, yikes! We have been really enjoying our summer. We've been trying to keep Morgan busy indoors....it's way too hot outside.

So what have we been up to?

A little of this:




A little celebrating Daddy's Birthday..


A little of that....








And some of this too....


These tantrums are a new thing...she's usually so mellow and easy-going! I hear these last well into the 4th year! Sigh....



While the kids were playing upstairs today I ran downstairs for a minute. I came up and THIS is what I saw:


Morgan was so proud...she kept saying "Mommy WE MADE YOU A PICTURE!!"


God bless the inventor of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser!
