Scenes from a summer weekend :)

Elizabeth and I had a great weekend with friends, and a birthday party on Sunday at our apt. complex pool :) Have I mentioned how much we love summer? :)

Awesome Beach Day!

Today we went to the beach (Salisbury State Park) with our friends Misty and Paden. It was such a fun day, the kids and grown ups all had a blast! I love summer :)

Four year old update

Now that Miss E is 4 (!!!), I thought I'd give an update of what she is up to these days...

* she still loves the water more than life itself (needless to say, our apt comlex pool gets A LOT of use this summer!), and has no fear of jumping into the pool, or "swimming" under water...

* she is very social and outgoing, loves to meet new people (especially other kids) and makes friends easily

* she has a major sweet tooth, loves candy and chocolate

* she has a tendency to revert to baby talk and whining (grrr...) when tired

* she is about the funniest person I've ever met

* she loves music, and to sing and dance

* she would rather run around outside and play ball than sit and look at a book, but does like being read to at bedtime

* she has a mind of her own, for sure!!! She is defintely "strong willed", but has become increasingly able to be reasoned with (yay!!)

* she still refuses to sleep in her own bed (ok, so I haven't really pushed it...I sorta like this co-sleeping thing...)

* as of a couple of weeks ago, she weighed 35 lbs when she stepped on my scale. She has her 4 year check up next week, so I'll get her height then. But her legs are looking longer by the day to me!

Ok, there is so much more I could say about my girl, but I'll leave it for now...She continues to amaze me and make me laugh every day :)

The birthday bash

Today I had a birthday party for Elizabeth at a splash park, with all her BFF's from school. The weather was perfect, and a great time was had by all :)

PS: A special shout out to one of MY BFF's Misty, for helping me shlep all the party goodies to the park and set up, and entertain!

Happy 4th of July from Maine!

Elizabeth and I came up to my parents' place in Maine on Saturday morning. Elizabeth did great and we zipped up in just 5 hours:) We arrived at about 2pm, and E was very happy to get out of the car and run around! She enjoyed swinging on the rope swing Grandpa set up... and trying to catch butterflies with a net...

Then, that night we went to a party at a Country Club nearby. Elizabeth met some other kids and ran around on the grass for most of the time we were there.

She met another little girl F., who was adopted from Guatemala.

On Sunday morning, the weather was a little iffy, but warm enough, so I took E to the Lily Pond on Deer Isle to go swimming. We didn't stay too long, since we were almost the only ones there. Elizabeth much prefers to have other kids around to play with. Just Mom is pretty boring, I guess...:)

That night, we had my favorite Maine dinner- Lobster!!

And since my Dad's birthday was last week, and E's is next week, I made a little birthday cake for dessert...Elizabeth and Grandpa blew out the candles together (see pic at the top of this post...I could not move this picture down here...Does anyone know a good way to move images around on Blogger?? I can never do it!)

This morning, we went to the 4th of July Pardade. There was a band, balloons, dogs, and lots of candy!

In the car afterward, with her bag of loot :)

We have been having a great weekend! More to come next post. Too tired and annoyed with Blogger to post more right now...:)
