Just wondering...

Where do you put anything boyish in here? (the pictures aren't very good) but you get the gist... it's all girl, and atleast, for a little while, Lilley and baby boy will be sharing a room, even if it's just for clothes and stuff. Theres no room for boy stuff!

Every year since I was born ( i think) my family has spent the 4th of July at the beach. We've gone to the same beach with the same friends forwever. When Frank and I started dating I introduced him to the beach 4th of July, and he's hooked! So now it's become one of our family traditions to spend the entire day and night at the beach for the 4th of July. We usually get there around 10 am and stay until the firework show at 9:00 pm. This year was the first year we didn't bbq there. We invited some good friends to spend the day with us, and they obliged and we spent the day at the beach, left for a little while to get some food( but mostly so the kiddos could nap in the car) and then came back for the show. It was a really nice day... I learned that swimming in the Ocean at 8 1/2 months prego causes extreme water buoyancy! I was making fun of myslef because i cuold lay in the water on my tummy and totally float! It was awesome, who needs a raft when you have a gut to make you float! :) Here are just a couple pics from the day. :)
PS- have i mentioned how much Lilley loves the water? pool, ocean, blow up pool at the ocean... doesn't really matter, the kid loves water! She was so good at occupying herself in her splash pool we brought her, and then taking a few trips in to the ocean with mommy and daddy. too much fun!

it's my party and ill cry if I want to!

Overall- Lilley had a nice birthday. She got tons of clothes and toys and a new pool, and all kinds of fun stuff, but the birthday party day itself, wasnt our best day. the poor kid was teething soooooo bad, her top two teeth decided it was time to come in between Tuesday (her actual birthday, and Saturday when we had the party). She was such a little fuss bucket, but she looked so cute we couldnt help but still adore her. :) and then on top of that, the weather was so not cooperative, hence the lack of pictures from the outdoor part of her party. It was so darn windy at the lake, we ended up having to take the party back to our house inside. I felt really bad for Frank actually, he spent the morning decorating the gazebo so cute, and by the time the party started he had to abandon ship on most of the balloons we got and that he hung from streamers and the flowers kept blowing over, etc... etc.. so we ended up just moving the left over food and remaining party guests to our house. It turned out just fine in the end, just a bummer about the wind. Here are a few pics from the day... pretty much all i got were of the cake and cupcakes that i made and a couple of her hating her own cupcake! :) two tries in a week and the kid still doesnt like birthday cake. Good to know. :) atleast she eats every other kind of food! haha

All and all it was a nice day, and now were moving on with the summer with Franks birthday this coming Friday, and the arrival of our baby boy in just over a month. It's starting to get a little hectic around here.
