Splash Pad

Today Mylie and I went to the Splash Pad in Smyrna. We met some friends there for a little fun in the sun. Except there wasn't much sun today. That was o.k. because the kids had fun anyway. This place was a little smaller than I expected but produced a good hour of fun. The best part, it's FREE and is fenced in! It was a great day to go because it was not crowded at all. I would have been very nervous if there had been a lot of kids there running around since Mylie is still so small. The funniest thing happened, but it probably made me look like a bad mother. Mylie took her towel and put it over her head, like she does a lot. She started walking around in the water with her towel still over her head. Then, she turned and was walking out of the water and walked straight into the fence! She fell backward and began to cry. I could not help but laugh. So did everyone else! Poor baby!

Happy Birthday Carter J!

My Little Dare Devil

Mylie has been climbing on EVERYTHING! Anything she can get her little foot up on or pull herself up to, she is climbing! I am thinking that we are going to have to bolt everything down in the house, or move all the furniture out. The other morning, I left her in the living room for just a few seconds and when I came back in the room, she was laying on the couch drinking her milk. I am so afraid that she will attempt her latest trick with out us in the room. That is, she climbs up on the couch and then onto the arm of the couch and stands there. She then turns around and dives into the middle of the couch. I caught a few pics of her before she jumped. Don't think that I am a bad parent. Justin was standing very close to her, you just can't see him in the pics.

Catch Up...

Mylie finally started feeling better around the 4th. We went to a friends house for a cookout and fireworks. Of course, Mylie stole the show. She was so funny. Our friends hired a DJ and Mylie danced forever. Everyone was watching and encouraging her. It was too funny. Mylie loved the fireworks. She would look up and say "ooooo" and clap her hands every time one would go off.

Monday we went to a friends house to swim and had a blast. Her pool had a awesome slide and diving board. I even went down the slide twice. It was too big for Mylie but she really enjoyed watching the other kids in the pool.

Later this week, we went to Chattanooga to visit Steven Bourque. He is a co worker of Justin. During Bonnaroo, Bourque was patrolling on his THP motorcycle when he was involved in a crash. He was hurt pretty badly. He was taken by helicopter to Erlanger and had to have surgery. During surgery, there were some complications which almost cost him his life. After staying at the hospital for about a week he was moved to a rehab facility. He stayed there for 2 weeks before coming home this past Thursday. He is doing as well as could be expected now. He still has pins in his foot and the doctors have not been able to address his shoulder because of the blood thinner that he is on. He will continue to have physical therapy and it is estimated that he could be back to light duty work in about 6 months and full duty in about a year. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. He is married with two young children.

Friday we went to the YMCA with Tamara and her crew. We had a lot of fun, and I got a little sun burnt. It is true that the best time to get sun burnt is when it is overcast. Later that night, we met my cousin and her boyfriend for dinner. We had wonderful food and great conversation. I sent Mylie with Tamara so we could enjoy some adult time.

Today, Mom and Hannah came down to visit. We went to the Uncle Dave Macon Days here in the boro. It was soooo hot! We only stayed for an hour. I fed Mylie lots of ice chips trying to keep her cool. We went to Demos' for lunch and stopped by Julia's bakery for some desert. It was fabulous. Next we came back home for a nap and then Mom, Hannah, and I went to the movies. We saw Journey in to the Center of the Earth. It was a 3D movie. I can't remember the last time I went to the movies, much less a 3D movie. It was really cool. Great kid movie. I left them after that movie and they went to dinner. They went back to the movies to see Kit Kittredge. Mom just called and said they laughed and cried and loved the movie. I hope they make it home before the storm.

Speaking of storm, I am going to post this quick in case our power goes out. They are calling for some strong storms and lightening.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
