Birthday Party

We had a lot of fun at Emma's birthday party!! She actually took her first steps, which was REALLY exciting!!

I made a caterpillar cake for her birthday, I don't think she knew what to make of it, but I thought it turned out pretty cute!!

I thought she would really get into the opening of presents but she really didn't dive in like I thought she would. But she sure loved them when they were unwrapped!

And the favorite goes to Traci and Jake!!! The baby laughs when you push on its stomach and she LOVED it!! She laughs and the hugs it all the time!!

She couldn't get enough of the baby!!

After presents it was cake time!! My favorite!! I know some people think its a dumb tradition BUT we will ALWAYS do it in this Lewis House!!!
She started out delicate like Madison but then dove right in I was very proud!!

After her cake and bath she was still hanging on to her baby!! Good job Traci!!

And the question of the day!!

My sister Brya calls Emma her little Monchichi and so of coarse had to get her one for her birthday!! So what do you think, Monchichi or not?

Stark Reunion and Madison's First Crush!!!

Well The 8th hit and we were off camping again!! This time it was for the Stark Family Reunion, which is always held at the lake!!
Madison went knee boarding for the first time!! She did so good and was so brave I was really proud of her!! Emma and I had fun watching Brad and Madison show off their skills!

Emma and Aunt Liz

Emma was ready to go knee boarding herself but I figured she was a little to young!

I do have to say Madison was the cutest flag girl!!

I just thought this picture was So cute, She was looking up at Brad!!

The only place Emma could sleep without getting heat stroke was with Aunt Traci.
We sure loved her help!!
Brad did have to sleep most of the time but he did end up with a couple hours to play with the girls and boy did they love it!!
Brad also got some time to play himself.

THEN, for the thing you have all been waiting for.......
Madison's first Crush!!!
I have to say I was hoping it would take a little longer for her to have her first crush!! But it sure was adorable!! She would follow Logan everywhere, ask where he was when she couldn't see him, have to sit with him, and even correct Lynnie on how to pronounce his name.

Madison and Preston
Funny story, when Madison was on the boat, Brad and Preston (Brad's other cousin) were teasing her by calling her John!! Which of coarse she would correct then every time. Then when we had dinner that night she told Logan that he could call her John!!!
After we had gotten her plate ready she insisted on sitting next to Logan!!
Logan was great and she had so much fun!!
I'm just worried about when she finds out they're cousins!!!
We had a lot of fun being at the lake with the Starks!! And can't wait till next summer to do it again!!
But I think for this summer we are camped out!!

Independence Day

My Dad sent this to me and I thought it was very fitting so I had to post it!!
As the celebration of the birth of our nation approaches I could think of no greater words to read and by which to abide in this hour when so many cry calamity and woe.
“Men may fail, but this nation won’t fail. I have faith in America; you and I must have faith in America.
“I plead with you not to preach pessimism. Preach that this is the greatest country in all the world. This is the favored land. This is the land of our forefathers. It is the nation that will stand despite whatever trials and crises it may yet have to pass through.
“We should not be concerned about finding what is wrong with America, but we should be finding what is right about America and should be speaking optimistically and enthusiastically about America.”
--Harold B. Lee
Happy Fourth Of July!!!!
