Wednesday the 18th was Lainey's first adventure with playing in the sprinklers. It came to be due to some spilled bubbles. While we were outside blowing bubbles, she spilled most of the bottle down her leg. I started to spray it off with the hose, but that darn bubble mixture just makes a bigger mess when you try to clean it off. So we decided to go ahead and let her have some fun getting cleaned off. She loved every moment of it! She's asked to do it again several times since.

Potty Time

Well, we've been working and working on the potty training thing. So far, it hasn't made much progress. We've made a sticker chart and Lainey gets a sticker each time she sits on the potty. She's been wanting princess slippers for quite some time, so that is what she worked for on her last chart. She got them on Monday and has been wearing them ever since!

Family Trip May 2007

In May we took a trip to Philadelphia and Virginia to see some of Nate's family. His parents are serving a mission in Philadelphia and his sister's family is in Woodbridge, VA which is near DC. We DROVE, and while it was great and we were able to see a lot of things, it was also LONG! We left May 8th and came home on the 19th. We drove over 3,000 miles! We traveled through 8 states along the way. It was a great trip! We got to: drive the Chesapeake Bay tunnel, ride on the Lewes Ferry, see lighthouses, get lost on the NJ turnpike, see downtown Philly, the DC temple, downtown DC, and Mount Vernon.
