Happy Something Today

Why is Fourth of July my favorite holiday? Because of a day like this...

First we attended our niece's softball game. She is an awesome pitcher. She lead her team though this tournament qualifying them for State Championships!
Morgan and Kendall have fun with their cousins at the softball games.After the game we headed over to Gramma and Grandpa's for a dip in the pool...
...and a popsicle.
Then over to a friends house for the real celebration. Morgan helped her friend sell some lemonade. This little boy is a true entrepreneur (just like his father). He created a mobile lemonade stand, genius! If they won't come to you, go to them! (he made bank!)

And of course the fireworks. I love today! I can't believe I didn't get a picture of the food! We had a great spread, including the best ribs made my this crazy guy.PS - When saying goodbye to Gramma, Kendall said, "Bye! Happy...uh...Mom, what is the 'happy something' called today"

Less Is A Lot Less II

Hello, my name is Stud-Muffin.

Yes, it was time. I just wasn't ready to part with his curls until I realized I already had my girls, now it was time for a macho-manly haircut.

Here is the before, the during, the distraction, and the after of the first official haircut.

And They All Had Fun At The Ladybug Picnic

Who wants to have a ton of fun with their little girls? Okay, ready? This is what you do...

First, you let the Grandma's plan it (they always know how to do things just right). You get matching dresses for all the girls, again all the Grandmas' doings. These dresses came with matching outfits for their dolls too!

Then, you have to serve tea and crumpets (and by tea I mean peach soda water, and by crumpets I mean heart shaped pb&j).Now don't forget the "decorate your own cupcake part". Kendall can make a mean cupcake.

Grandma Dolly was lucky enough to get a Kendall creation.(There really is a cupcake underneath all that)And Grandma Dolly didn't disappoint the chef. What a sport!Finally, the party isn't complete without a bucket full of ladybugs (bought at your local home improvement store). It was my favorite part.They loved Morgan's hair. Can you spot all five?And Alli's eyebrow.
Thanks Grandma Dolly, Ya-Ya, and La-La.
