This past weekend we went with Ben's family on the annual trip to the lake house. It was a short last minute decision, but we were glad it all worked out. We all had a lot of fun, but I think Gracie had the most. She jumped off the dock, road the wave runners, and tubed behind the boat (she even got knocked off the tube and insisted laughing for more. I didn't get many pictures because we were having too much fun.
We sure are going to miss Nana and Pop when they move to Guatemala.
We sure missed Kim and Jason and their 4 kids.
On Monday, one of Gracie's friends through a "messy party". She had a great time playing in pudding, jello, whipped cream, noodles, spraying dye on a sheet, and much more. It was such a fun idea and the kids loved getting messy.
Of course she had to try the pudding.

The conversations during these pictures:
Gracie:" Mama, I love Abs" (her new nickname Gracie's given her)
Me:"That's sweet, I love her too! And I love Gracie. I bet Abby loves Gracie too."
Gracie: "No, Abs loves Mommy, because you have the nulk (milk)"

Today marks potty training day 2. Gracie has never gone pee-pee in the potty because she's been a little nervous. Yesterday I decided was the day to start and after about 10 minutes of reading stories on the potty she went. We couldn't believe she went. We had a few accidents of course, but overall she did very good for her first day. She even came up and told me a number of times she had to go and was very excited. We celebrated by going to get ice-cream last night with Daddy. She looks so big and cute in her panties. I already think we need to go up a size in panties with that big booty she has. Hopefully the rest of this week goes well. I'm not looking forward to being home bound, but I am definitely looking forward to having a potty trained girl. What a big girl I have.

We had a great 4th of July with Ben's family. There was a big family reunion that weekend with Ben's Granddad's side of the family. We loved having all of Ben's siblings together. Gracie especially loved her cousin Spencer. We enjoyed swimming, sail boating, go-cart, eating, playing, and just being together. Gracie had a lot of fun doing sparklers and poppers and thought the fireworks were so pretty. It was nice being out on the Ranch, because we got to do our own fire works and I think the boys had a fun time setting them off.
