She's on vacation

 Josie had her last day of school and then end of the year picnic last weekend also. I think she is really going to miss going over the summer.

Rainy Memorial Day Parade

 This firetruck from the early 1900's is an original model T firetruck. I have seen it parked in a barn/garage several houses down from us. Since it was a fairly noncrowded event we got to meet our "neighbors" afterwards too.

The girl scouts and boy scouts were the only groups who didn't bail because of the rain. I think they had fun even though they were a little wet. It was pretty funny- The girls made the banner on the last meeting and I had asked Ella about it but she really had no info and "couldn't remember" anything about it (this is when I picked her up probably 10 minutes after they had finished) but when we were looking for her troop and I was seeing the other signs I would stop and say "oh is that your group?" and she eventually was like "NO our sign is blue and it has a big daisy on it with 8 petals because there are 8 girls in our troop!" Funny how memory works sometimes :)

Happy Birthday Ruth

Ruth turned 2 this past week and though her and Josie's official party isn't for a couple of weeks we still celebrated at home (of course). When I asked her what kind of cake she wanted she said "purple!"

 Our friends happened to be visiting from out of town, so look at that, all of us in a picture together!

 She was very excited about the singing and all, but then she just stared at the candles like this for what seemed like several minutes.


 Luckily she had a couple eager assistants.


 Ruth's favorite toy was this robot. She plays with it like a baby and sleeps with it every night.

It pretty much needed a bath after the first 15 minutes :)

Happy Birthday Ruthie!!!
