I like summer


Dinner was lovely. Marinated chicken and veggie kabobs, Grilled sweet potatoes, Watermellon and blackberry salad. After dinner we took a bike ride through the canyon and Olivia got out and explored. When we returned we ate popsicles outside and then played "the gingerbread man game" She runs around saying "run, run, as fast as you can; you cant catch me I'm the gingerbread man!" and I chase her and when I catch her I eat her with kisses and she laughes and laughes and then says, "Lets do it again! I'll be the gingerbread man and you be the lady" And thats how it went until I got so tired I had to rest. I love that little thing.

My little man ended the day with a fever. I think his top teeth are finally coming in. My babies are late teethers. Anyway I loved that he had a fever tonight because he just wanted me to hold him. That might sound strange, but I know nothing is seriously wrong with him and he let me just hold him and rock him for a whole hour until his meds kicked in. He looked at me and I at him and I kissed his sweet little nose and sang to him and he played with my hair. Then the hour was up and he was off my lap as quick as he could to go play with his sister and I kinda wished I would have waited to give him the tylenol. That hour was too short.

I always felt that way with James. He never just sat in my lap and cuddled unless he was sick. So I understand how you feel, cuddling with your babies is the best!
