We have several play silks and Lizzy mostly likes to play peek a boo with them or put them on Bella. Here she is playing peek a boo.

Scooping and pouring beans was a success! Lizzy did great, her coordination is so much better than it was just a month ago. Such a simple activity was such an engaging one for Lizzy she spent quite a while pouring the beans back and forth and seemed to truly enjoy it.

As part of our rhythm on Sundays we bake. This past Sunday we made bubble bread together. I anticipated a large mess so instead of making the bread from scratch we used Pillsbury biscuits and rolled them into balls, then Lizzy dipped them in butter, then sugar and cinnamon. We baked the bubble bread and ate it after dinner and for breakfast the next morning. Lizzy did a great job and hardly made any mess.

Lizzy has been wearing a swim school float swimsuit when we go swimming in the pool. The new swimsuit is great because it allows Lizzy to swim all around the pool, and even jump in by herself! Of course we are right there supervising her but the suit gives her confidence to swim around without us holding her. Lizzy now uses her legs and arms to navigate her swimming around the pool.

We had a rainforest themed day and took Lizzy to the new rainforest pyramid at moody garden then we had lunch at the rainforest cafe afterwards. Lizzy seemed to have fun with everything we did but said she was "scared of rainforest". We saw monkeys, lizards, frogs, birds, and alligators roaming around the rainforest pyramid. Lizzy was tired out on the car ride home.

Over the long weekend we took Lizzy to the splash pad. It was perfect because no one was there, it was still relatively cool out, and afterwards we played in the park next to the splash pad (Lizzy of course has the time of her life). Tita, Tito, and Tio were all there and we had lunch together for Tito's birthday after playing at the park. Summer is so fun!

We spent the fourth very busy. First, we went the the 4th of July parade that goes right down the street we live on. Then, we went to my parent's house to celebrate my dad's birthday! We ate BBQ then went back home for a nap. Later, we went to a 4th of July celebration with concert, food, and a carnival. When the sun went down we watched the firework show. Lizzy had a great time running around and watching the firework. Mike and I were worn out by the end of the day. Hope you had a great fourth!
