Today we walked around for a bit. A nice day but too hot in the sun so we played in the froggie pool instead of taking a second walk. I wore by pink bathing suit with the raffle and white hearts instead of just a swim diaper. Very cute! This time, I kept on wanting to stand-up and grab the froggie's eyes. I am always in motion.

Ms. Beth does not come back until Wednesday so I got to spend the day with Daddy. I especially like it when he puts on his walking straw hat. Then I know it means that we are ready to go for our father-daughter walk! I also like helping Daddy with his programming. Daddy, put a semicolon here...

This morning was a nice slow leisurely morning as we started to pack up for the trip back home. I had a wonderful time here meeting the children next door and swinging in the bucket seat tied to the large maple tree. I was able to play with the grass on a blanket and put my feet in the water. All the grown-ups also seemed to have a good relaxing time.

This morning we saw the National Baby Food Festival Parade. I enjoyed looking at all the children, dogs, trucks and pickle-picking farm equipment! It was a beautiful day and I could see a whole lot more when I sat on Grandpa's lap. Later that evening, Mommy and the Grandparents went to Mass, while I took a nap. Daddy, Lou, Paula and I caught-up with them for dinner at the local Country Club.

We explored the festival grounds in small downtown Fremont. We passed the Gerber factory that makes my food, went into the Gerber tent to get a lot of free stuff like bibs, grabbers, juice, picture frames, bottle sippy caps and washcloths. Mommy and Grandma enjoyed looking at all the craft booths. That evening during cocktail hour with our veggie and chicken quesadillas, we all got to ride in Paula and Lou's boat. Fun, fun!

Daddy, Mommy and I drove to Fremont, Michigan today to meet with Grandpa and Grandma Peters at the Sheridan House Bed & Breakfast. We were on vacation and found a place right on Fremont Lake. Our hosts Paula and Lou were so kind to me. They set up a crib in the room next to the window with the lake view and let me play with a LeapFrog Catapillar musical toy. For the adults, they had a cocktail hour complete with shrimp, cheese and crackers in the evening.

Gorgeous blue skies. Grass like emeralds! Must be all the good rain. We walked to Buhr Park and admired the Cobblestone farm next door. We sat for a while under a large shady maple. I sat up beautifully in the grass! I enjoyed feeling the wind and the grass. My one complaint was that Ms. Beth would not actually let me eat the grass after I have carefully picked it. Poor Kaylie!

We often try and find new neighborhoods to walk through and explore. Today's neighborhood was not shady enough so after awhile we headed towards the library to cool off. There were games going on in the common room and I was very interested in all the children's happy voices.

A long walk through quiet neighborhoods. We saw a pond with cattails and red-winged blackbirds and a boy riding his bike with a little white dog in tow. We saw a tree split down the middle of two main branches which was the result of last night's rain storm. At the little park Ms. Beth held me as she rode a brown pony, the kind with a spring underneath. The mulberries and black raspberries are here. It was a cool pleasant day for walking.

We walked outside and then watched "Baby Monet" which I seemed to be more interested in this time. I sat in my high-chair after lunch and chewed on my teething ring. Somehow I managed to bite myself twice. Then Ms. Beth wised-up and put the teething ring away. Mommy suggested an ice-cube popsicle in the mesh bag and that worked out better.

We walked to the library and read a book about islands which I enjoyed very much. Good enough to eat, I may say. We also observed the fish and best of all, the other children. I have been napping more lately and have a bit more hair. Ms. Beth says that I am constantly changing which is both a happy and sad time.
