While she's not singing in the rain yet...she's definitely sitting in it!
A few weeks ago, when it wasn't sweltering hot, Todd and I were busy cleaning up our garage. Since it hasn't rained much at all the summer, Gracie had a blast sitting in the gutter scooping up rain water and putting it into her buckets.

BeBe, my mom, flew in on Sunday...and we've been having fun and laughing lots! Gracie is keeping BeBe very busy and entertained all day long.
BeBe got this video of Gracie singing along to her playhouse's radio with the ABC song. We've probably watched this "bideo" 50 times already and giggle every time we hear her sing "L, N...O...B" for L, M, N, O, P and towards the end she's bobbing her head and humming along to the music and then finally finishes strong with "Uh...No ABCs" because BeBe had asked her to sing her ABCs multiple times trying to get the "bideo" of her singing it all the way through without stopping.

Someone got some new shoes...and ABSOLUTELY loves them.
Our little girl got some big girl shoes - real sneakers! She looks so much more grown up when she's got them on and she's so very proud of them.
I think what sold her was when we said they were like Daddy's and that they make her run really fast and jump really high! They must be super comfy too because she doesn't want to take them off.
We're thrilled that she loves them so much - thank you Ellee and Grape for Gracie's new sneaks.

Grape,Todd's Dad, was so sweet...he found this doughnut baking pan with recipe included while he was in Charlotte and thought it would be a fun little project for him and Ellee, Todd's Mom, to make with Gracie while they were here.
baking soda is NOT the same as baking powder!
Gracie didn't care!
She had a BLAST mixing everything up and
shaking and eating all the sprinkles!
So...while the doughnuts turned out to be doughNOTs!
They still had so much fun "baking" together!
Next time we'll just make a run up to Krispy Kreme!
HOT Doughnuts NOW, anyone?

Todd's parents came up to visit us over the 4th of July weekend. As always, we had lots of fun with them. Unfortunately, it was TOO HOT to do a lot of things - so we stuck close by the house for almost all of our activities...one of these years I really want to go into DC to enjoy the celebrations of the 4th while we're living in the Nation's Capital (there's always next year).
Here's how we spent our day -
Wagon ride to the pond!
Hope y'all had a wonderful 4th too!
