Summers Days.

HOT.

That’s the only word to describe Louisiana summers. Thankfully, our pool days have been cooling us off. Lately, our lives have been spent in bathing suits and eating ice cream.

As they did last year, Maw & Pappy took the three granddaughters to Orange Beach for a couple of days. They had a blast, as usual, but I missed them terribly. Thanks, Maw & Pappy for another fun getaways for the girls!

Their busy summer continued when they returned home. They had a fun week at Vacation Bible School with all of their friends. They are still singing these songs everyday!

Just when we thought we would have a quiet week, Easton reminded us that we never have a dull moment these days. He woke up in the night breathing heavily and extremely fast. I brought him to the Emergency Room, and after 6 hours, they finally admitted him for the night. No pneumonia or RSV…just a bad Upper Respiratory funk that he could not shake. He is doing much better…but scared us for sure.

Hopefully we will have an uneventful rest of the summer- we are looking forward to our family vacation in a couple of days!

Jules’ 4th Birthday – The Wizard of Oz

The day before Jules’ birthday, we decided to give her the “big” present since we weren’t bringing it to the actual party. She is so excited to ride a big bike now!

Whenever we are riding in the car, the girls take turns picking what movie is playing in the back seat. Whenever it is Jules’ turn to pick, she always chooses The Wizard of Oz. When it was time to plan a birthday party for her, she told me she wanted a “Dorothy party.” IMG_5146

We had her party at Party Palooza which is a party venue complete with tons of stuff for the kids to do. There are different areas setup…dollhouse, dressup, kitchen, construction, etc. There are also two bouncy houses!

I did the food, and Party Palooza did the décor and cake. It was all so precious!

We sang Happy Birthday and opened presents. I love to watch Jules open presents, because she truly is surprised and loves everything she gets.

To Jules on your 4th Birthday

Jules Camryn,

Our little hot mess is four years old! You are getting to be such a big girl, and Mommy & Daddy love watching you grow. You have so many friends, and everyone just loves that “Julesy Wulsey.”

You always make people laugh, which I think is one of your best traits. You have the best little personality with a laugh that is infectious. You are so laid-back and have a “go with the flow” kind of attitude. I hope you keep that as you grow. You don’t get upset over much….don’t tell Daddy, but I think you get that from me :)

You are also very stubborn. You like to stand your ground (even if you know that you are wrong), just to make your point. Don’t tell Daddy, but I think you get that from him :)

We love to have conversations with you. You jump from one subject to the other, which tells me that the wheels in your head are constantly turning. You ask so SO many questions…but that tells me you are very smart! I know you will do so well in PreK this year.

You are growing into such a pretty young lady. Those curls, dimples, golden tan, and that adorable personality will catch the hearts of many boys one day. And don’t be shy….when you are on that first date…you order the messiest BBQ ribs like you know you want to….if he is a keeper, he will be tying your curls back and handing you a wet wipe.

I love you so much, Julesy Wulsey!! Never stop being who you are!

Love, Mom

The Fish that Smiles

Leave it to Ms. Kennedy to go from one extreme to the other. Last year (and the first swim meet this year), she cried before swimming, during swimming, and after swimming in the meets. This year, when it finally clicked, she can’t stop smiling!! I don’t know how she doesn’t swallow water when she’s swimming.

Finally, I realized that she associated swim meets with dance recitals. Everyone is watching and clapping for your “performance.” I told her this was a competition…not a smiley performance on stage!!

She qualified for the finals at invitationals this year. I told her she needed to put her game face on…this was a RACE! Yet, in all my pictures, I can see that little smirk she gave all season long. I guess she really loves what she does!
