July 2012

We were VERY busy the month of July,
which is probably why my posts haven't been up-to-date.
These are my friends Paige and Josie. I like to swim with them.
They keep telling Mom & Dad to go out on a date so they can babysit me.

We spent 4th of July at home. We went to the pool for relief from the scorching temperatures.
Later that evening went up to the neighbor's to watch some fireworks. I loved them! Well, except for when they got really loud. Let's just say I loved watching them from far away.
We went to see Gramma & Grampa on the lake in NE a couple weekends this month.
We also went on a few boat rides.
Daddy let me drive!! 
The ride back to KC with Sadie

I've spent lots and lots of time with Daddy this month.
He's taught me all kinds of stuff - even some camp songs!

I got some awesome new trucks from some friends in the neighborhood!!

We went on a field trip with my friend Fletcher
and his Mommy to Deanna Rose, then to the
choo choo place (Fritz's) for lunch. It was lots of fun!

Daddy also got the downstairs painted...
Bye, Bye Blue Wall!

I had another playdate with Fletcher and a new friend, Ellie!
We had lots of fun!

Gramma came to visit from IA & we did lots and lots of playing!

Andreasen Fun Weekend

We had our annual Andreasen weekend in Columbus last weekend.
It was a hot weekend - good thing we spent most of it in the water!
The kiddos:
Me, TJ, Luke, Amelia, Molly & Sophia
I loved playing in Papa's sandbox! 
TJ's my buddy and helped me make some sand castles 
Sophie & Amelia showed us their swimming skills
and they all jumped off the dock with Sadie.
Maybe next year I will too! 
I loved playing with this fishing net.
TJ was helping me catch some fish!
I would stick my net in the water and say,
"Just a minute, the fish are coming!"
We had lots of playing time inside too!

Henry Doorly Zoo

We stopped in Omaha to visit the Henry Doorly Zoo on our way to Columbus for the annual Andreasen weekend. Gramma Ryan came with us. She had been watching me earlier that week while Daddy was working at school. She followed us up to Omaha, then headed on to LeMars after the zoo.
I had a blast looking at all the animals!!
I was a little too scared to cross the bridge by myself
Of course I LOVED watching all the fish!!!
and I was really interested in the jellyfish
I liked watching Nemo too!
The other highlight was that I got to ride a REAL TRAIN!!

I had a GREAT time at the zoo and can't wait to go back again!
I was aleep before we even got out of Omaha and slept all the way to Columbus.
I even recognized the dome on the way back to Kansas City... I pointed right at it and said, "Mom, ZOO!!"
Yes, I can't wait to go back!!

Mom & Dad brought me to a Touch-A-Truck event this weekend! It was for Harvesters where companies brought in their vehicles for kids to touch and tour. There were REALLY, REALLY big dump trucks, cranes, loaders, fuel truck, fire truck, ambulance, army tank, tractors, school bus and lots more! There were really long lines to go inside these trucks. Mom & Dad were pretty thankful that I wasn't too concerned about seeing the inside of them. I just liked touching them and looking at the wheels. I'm sure that won't be the case when I'm older. Here are a few pics:

I loved the school bus!
Inside the ambulance from Children's Mercy 
Some goats from nearby petting zoo 
Harley motorcycle 
More school bus! 

Pick-up Truck
(kids got to write all over the outside with dry-erase markers) 

Mom & Dad kept asking me what I wanted to see next... I kept saying tractors!
Here's one that I got to sit on:
I could be in a parade!!
