I have been busy since the last time I blogged. Morgan started swim lessons (she can swim already, I just want her to learn all the different types of strokes), fireworks came and gone, Sydney celebrated her 4th bday, we visited my SIL and family and the usual everyday things.

For Sydney's bday, she asked me to make her Dora cupcakes. Well, I'm no Ace of Cakes, so I just stuck with what was simple and comfortable...cupcakes!! Here are her Dora cupcakes she requested... We took these cupcakes to the park where the fireworks were being held. Since we aren't doing bdays for the girls for a while now, cupcakes at the park with her cousins was good enough. Zoe, Mallory and their cousin Kaitlyn were at the festivities (as they are every year) and we had to get a photo of the kids I was a little worried with the heat and Colton but surprisingly he did GREAT!! He stayed up to watch the fireworks and was so calm and watched the entire show! Here he is with the glow stick my niece gave him...she took an awesome picture too!And of course, a picture of one of the fireworks. I think I paid too much attention this year on taking really good pictures instead of enjoying the show.

The next day, Neal had to work so the girls and I went along for the ride, dropped him off and then headed to my SIL's house for a bit. The good thing is that we were staying over at their house and Neal worked near their house. We just enjoyed the day swimming...which Colt did awesome in...such a water baby! We also lit some fireworks, watched their neighbor waste hundreds and hundreds of dollars blowing into smoke from the fireworks! Andrea made Sydney some ice cream cone cupcakes and a mini cake for her. Here she is waiting for us to finish singing.

And here is a picture of the sparklers while playing around with my camera.
