Too long again

My little darling beans! Wow, I can’t believe that it has been this long since I have written to you. We have had a pretty busy month. Every year for the past 32 or 33 years Nana and Papa, and now RJ have rented a cottage on Wilke Lake. We always go out a few days because we knew that you guys would really enjoy it. Well, for some reason neither one of you would go in the water! I forced you at times to go in but you really didn’t like it, lol! We put you on Amy’s Jet Ski and at least you sat on there long enough for us to get a pic of you.

This is one of Ahma’s favorite pictures of you. Of course you just love the camera and will always say cheese whenever we pull it out. The weather was pretty decent for us this year and you both did love the boat parade that goes through on 4th of July. That’s because people love to throw bags of candy and who doesn’t love candy? So, all in all it was a good time at the cottage but maybe next year we can actually get you guys in the water!

After the cottage on the 4th we decided to take you both down to the fireworks. You have never been before and we weren’t sure how you or your sister would react. We walked down and found a spot by the lake. You both really enjoyed them but were exhausted from the busy day so we didn’t stay for them all. You both fell asleep on the walk home but it was still nice to get you down there and let you see them for the first time.

Other than that not too much is new. This picture was taken on the morning of one of our regular Saturday activities. Usually every Saturday morning (in the summer at least) we go out for breakfast, to the farmer’s market, to some rummage sales, and then do the grocery shopping for the week. Your new favorite thing to do is “backpack shoulders”. That is what you call it when someone puts you on their shoulders. But, you have gotten quite a terrible temper lately and have taken to hitting, throwing things, screaming, and just being sassy. I know that you are just going through the terrible twos, but you are much worse than your sister was at this age. You must get your temper from me – I know you will grow out of it and thankfully Grace is pretty good natured so when you hit her and usually doesn’t fight back. I just don’t want you to be such a little brute all the time.

We have also started having some more company lately. This Sunday we had a group of people over and I got to see one of my favorite people in the whole world, Bernice. That is who is holding you in the pic on the left. She lives in Illinois and is your sister Jenny’s best friend. Unfortunately when she does come up to visit she is usually strapped for time so we don’t always get to see her. It was so great that she stopped and also that you climbed up into her lap. She just has the greatest personality and is a “motherly” type. Hopefully you will get to know her better the older that you get.

Well, I suppose I will close for now. I promise not to take so long in writing. There are so many things that happen and I need to write them down so I don’t forget. Love you chubudu!
