Tonight it was kind of chilly out so my dad put me in the outfit my grandma made for my blessing. The first time I wore this it was longer than my legs, it completely covered my hands, and almost two of my heads fit in the hood! Look at me in it now! I don't think mom is going to get many more uses out of this one.
My dad is always teaching my mom and me about trees, flowers, animals, etc. so tonight I thought I'd take it upon myself to teach him something... TAKE THAT DAD!!

We had SO much fun at the zoo in Idaho Falls! We got to go with some of Jesse's family and Jesse's friend Matt, his wife and son Emerson. Rosalee LOVED the monkeys! They made all sorts of weird noises and would sit against the glass looking at her. It was funny watching my nephews because they would get so excited over the smallest things. It made me so happy to surround myself with the kids because it helps me appreciate the world better.

On the 4th of July Jesse's parents wanted to take family pictures so here is a picture of them in front of the car. I had 3 pictures of the whole family taken on my camera and this is the best one. We also tried again for a family picture after the blessing of the twins. Again 3 were taken and this was the best one. Everyone in Jesse's family is in the pictures except for his eldest sister's husband who had to work (he's a pilot) and couldn't come out for the vacation.
Last year the James family had a hot dog cook off and this year the food item was vanilla ice cream. We had everything from ice cream toppings to drinks to a bacon waffle ice cream sandwich (mine). Grandma James once again won the award for best taste and I won the award for most unique.
We set off fireworks in the driveway outside of Jesse's parent's place. Rosalee had a fun time playing with her cousin Kaylee and watching the bright fireworks.

Now here are the pictures we DID take, enjoy!
Having lunch with my aunt and Alyssa Chef Brain with Rosalee The Brain family
Jesse with Rosalee and my cousin's husband Dan with Alyssa
Rosalee fell asleep at my mom's work so the only place we had to let her sleep was in one of the kennels!
After eating lunch at The Rainer Room one day we drove to Point Defiance Park and walked around the rose gardens. Rosalee had fun grabbing and smelling the flowers. Jesse also had fun teaching my mom about trees (see the above picture) and she taught him about herbs.
