Carlsbad Vacation

Family picts on the beach -Kaylie her usual grumpy picture taking self. She is a joy all of the time, but the we try to take a picture of her and she throws a giant tantrum. I cannot figure it out. Pictures with her making a plain face rather than and angry face were the best we could get.

We just got back from a week at the beach, and kaylie is definately a Carpenter, in that she loves the beach! She was crazy happy over the ocean, and as soon as she saw it, she started pointing and squealing for it. And as soon as we put her down, she ran full speek towards the water. She had so much fun splashing, and playing in the sand, and at the park, and at Disneyland, and with her cousins. She was non-stop going for a full week. She has been sleeping great since we got home, resting up from all the fun.

They made it !

My dad and little sister are in Tanzania this month. They sent this email to my mom yesterday.

"I only have a couple of minutes. I'll try and write more later
We made it!!!! Very hard!!!! Maybe 150 started and only 12 finished. We were two of them. Our trip is going absolutely perfect. No problems at all. Very safe here.
I miss you a ton!!!! Can't wait to tell you all the details.
Ali says she loves you and miss you a bunch too. "

Sounds like they made it; the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. I am so proud of them, but had no doubts they would do it. My dad thinks he is Indiana Alan and that little sister of mine is the toughest cookie I know. I am really proud of them...proud and a little jealous.

What and awesome experience.

This girl keeps me laughing....she is the silliest.

She is learning how to dress herself lately. Today she has decided that swim diapers work well as hats and sleeves.

We went to the children's museum this weekend agian on free Friday. The staff was putting tattoos on the kids as part of the party. She hardly noticed it until we went to get her in the bath later that night. When she found it she was quite proud of it.

We hope everyone had a fun fourth of july....here is a picture of K. doing what she could to stay cool at a city celebration over the holiday.
