Lizzy Gets Her Ears Pierced!

 Lizzy has been curious about ear piercing for a while...asking why all her friends have earrings and she doesn't. I've asked her if she wanted earring and explained what it's like to get your ears pierced for the first time. Lizzy usually says she doesn't want them pierced but when her Tita was her she decided she was ready and wanted them. Lizzy picked out small blue butterfly earrings and was very brave when she got her ears pierced. She was nervous but didn't cry or flinch. Before we knew it she had both ears pierced! Lizzy was very excited and happy with her decision. It was also special that her Tita and Tito were here with her for this special time for her.

Two days later one of her earrings fell out. Lizzy was so scarred to get it back in. It broke my heart because she had been so brave and was doing so good cleaning her ears then the earring fell out. We got it back in but it wasn't easy. Her ears are healing well now but she is very careful about anyone or anything coming near her ears.

Chickens...Bamboo...and lots of Jumping!

Lizzy had lots of fun visiting her great aunt's house! There is so much to do there. Lizzy especially loved jumping on the trampoline with her great aunts and uncle!

Lizzy at the Pool

Lizzy still loves to swim. Today we went to our community pool to check it out. Lizzy had a great time! For some reason Lizzy isn't enjoying her swim lessons though. She is taking swim lessons through the city and refuses to swim or join the class. Not sure why...after several attempts I think we might throw in the towel. I hate to have to do this but she is developing fears there that she didn't have before. Outside of the class she swims great and enjoys herself. Thankfully Lizzy is now swimming on her own without floats this year and doing great! That was the goal for the swim lessons but she figured it out on her own!

4th of July Weekend at Big Bear Lake

We got to spend 4th of July weekend at Big Bear Lake, CA. We were invited by family and took a road trip to get away from the heat and have fun. Caiman (our dog) came with us. We hiked, saw fireworks, explored the town, and relaxed in nature. Here are some pictures of our trip
