Brayden and Cora loved hanging out together. There were several characters from PBS there so we got to meet Super Why and Wonder Red. Cora and Brayden were so excited about meeting them they could hardly contain themselves. It was great! They had several other booths with face painting, balloon animals, games, and bounce houses. What a fun morning!

My girlfriends and I are going on a road trip next week for a conference in Atlanta and we needed to get together and discuss all of the details. So we went to Kathy's house this morning. You remember that friend when you were little that had all the cool toys. Well this is the Long family. I swear it was an amusement park in the back yard. In addition to the HUGE water slide they also have a bounce house. We ate lunch together (Kathy is famous for her chicken salad! Yummy!) and just talked all morning while the kids played and played and played. As you can tell they never got bored and more than one child was not very happy when we had to go home to take naps. Can we come back soon please??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the best things about the summer is meeting up at one of the many parks here in town with some friends. We all get out and well I think that we can all agree that it is always more fun to play with your friends rather than playing with mom or by yourself. We packed a lunch and had a great day of fun. Cora Mae and Brayden both were both so proud of themselves because today they both did the monkey bars by themselves for the first time. Way to go!

Cora Mae and I had dentist appointments a few days ago. She has always done very well but this time she was really great. She is such a big girl and even had her first set of x-rays. We practiced opening our mouths up really big. I think that she has that part under control. I went first and I felt so sorry for the lady cleaning my teeth because Cora Mae talked non stop the entire time I was in the chair. She told her about every person in our lives. No cavities. Yeah Cora!

As I have said before I have some wonderful friends. Sometimes when our husbands are out of town we will often get together and eat dinner together. Well my friend, Stephanie, came over the other night with Carlos and Kidist, her kids. I filled up the little pool and even though they thought that it was too small they had a great time. We love this family so much!

lunch I thought that I would give the girls a little "dessert." Now Honey Bee Graham crackers are not my idea of dessert but they still believe that it is. After I gave Cora Mae her cookies I tried to take away her plate with her left over ranch on it. She just about flipped out. There was no crying but the thought of me rinsing off her precious ranch dressing was just about more than she could take. "Please mommy don't throw it away I am going to dip my honey bees into it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" What?! OK Cora I hope you enjoy.

Aahhh" then go back to whatever she was doing. My Sweet Girl! So you can imagine my surprise when on Sunday her Sunday School Teacher informed me that she punched another girl in the face. What?!!!! You need to start praying for this little one now. She may not make it.
