My Little Harry Potter

So for the last 2 months I have been reading the Harry Potter books. It is my first time reading them and I absolutely love them. So much so that I cant put them down and find myself staying up for hours after everyone has gone to bed and taking every second I can during the day to pick up my book and read another page. After I finish a book Jeff and I watch the movie together. We just watched "The Order of the Pheonix" last night and I am now reading "The Half Blood Prince" so I can go see the movie next week with my sisters. Kaleb now recognizes Harry Potter everywhere we go. Movie posters, books in the store and even brooms. He thinks all brooms belong to Harry Potter. A few days ago he was playing in our backyard and when I peaked out the back window he was riding a broom around the yard. He also talks about him constantly. Just this morning we were laying in bed and I said "You're silly Kaleb" and he said "I not Bub-Bub, I Harry Potter!" Then a little bit later we were trying to teach him our first and last names and when I asked him what my name was he said, of course, "Harry Potter". So maybe he will have to be a little Harry Potter for Halloween this year. I guess we will wait and see.

4th of July Fun!

What a great 4th of July!
We started our day off at the park where they had
a bounce house, races, a train ride and snow cones.
Kaleb loved it all. He got to run in the races for the
very first time and even though he didnt come in first
he was so proud of himself. Andie had a good time just
basking in the sun. After that we went home and relaxed
for a while. Then we went and had a big block
party with all our great neighbors. It was
so much fun. We had tons of food, a pool, squirt guns,
a mini bounce house, water baloons, and so much more!
We love our neighborhood so much and can't
imagine living anywhere else. Thank you all so
much for being so good to our family.
