Shelby's cousin, Zoie has come up for the week. We've been having a lot of fun! First we went to Logan to visit Aunt Hilary. Hilary and I went down the stairs and we saw Grandma and her two cute granddaughters. We just had to get our cameras and take their pictures.

Then we had dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Frisby's house on Sunday. Shelby and Zoie had a little "water" party before. I think Shelby frustrated Zoie because all she wanted to do was fish out the ice cubes from the pitcher. Oh well, that's what's on your mind when your only 1 1/2.

The girls also had fun playing in the toy car on the deck. Shelby didn't like being in the car with someone else. She is starting to throw more fits. As you can see, there was one at dinner too.

Then today we went to the splash park and the kids went on the carousel and played in the water. Shelby actually played in the water this time!

Summer, summer, summertime!

I love summertime! I can't say it's my favorite season but it is a close second to Fall or what I like to call "Sweater Weather." But, this isn't about Sweater Weather. I love the sounds of summer the most. Shelby and I went to the "splash park" that is in Porter park the other day. I thought we were going to have so much fun. You could hear the sounds of the kids playing and the water spraying and the carousel's music playing. We got there and Shelby started smiling and laughing when she saw the water but as soon as she got into it, She freaked out. The big bucket on the top dumped a TON of water on her and she started running in a circle looking for me. It was so funny! I wish that I was able to take a picture of her but my camera's battery was too low.
Shelby did however like the Carousel, a lot! She didn't want to get off of it. She rode Sister Sue, which is a horse that Jordan's brothers fixed up when they were redoing the Carousel. It is a really cute little horse.
The next day Shelby and I went over to the Hymas' house to stay with Caleb and Holden while Raygon and Andy went to do Sealings. We had a lot of fun! Shelby and Caleb ran through the sprinklers and played with all of his toys. I think it's fun for her to play with new toys. I did find out that Shelby is a very jealous girl! Anytime I held Holden, she would want to be held too. I'm worried about when we have our next baby!

When my cousin, Laura, was here a little while ago we went up to Yellowstone National Park. We didn't get to spend much time there because Jordan had to work in the morning and he had class later in the evening. Anyway, it was beautiful but the animals we hiding from us.

I never knew that toddlers liked corn on the cob. Maybe they don't and my child is just weird. But, we had some BBQ and Shelby really wanted my corn on the cob and of course my spoiled little girl gets what she wants. I promise it's not just a fluke thing. She ate a lot of it another time, too. Anyway, here's a picture of her holding her cob after she ate it.
