Juliana Turns 4 - Take Two!

This past Saturday was Juliana's second and final celebration of her fourth birthday. Olivia was so excited to help "make surprises" for Juliana. It was very sweet. You can imagine how excited she was to fill all the goody bags!
We were lucky to have the most amazing weather. It was around 96, and while that may sound hot to some of you, compared to the 110 degree weather we had a few weeks ago, 96 feels like heaven.
Here is Juliana catching up with Mrs. West

You wouldn't believe the difference in the temperature of the water. It was freezing, but not too cold for the kids and Mrs. West. Click here to see Mrs. West Cannon Ball!

Happy Birthday Juliana! I can't believe my sweet little baby is already 4! And on a side note, the lady that Olivia is sitting on is Roger's friend's mother-in-law; whom Olivia had never met before she sat on her lap with a we bathing suit. I guess she just thought she looked like a grandmother. Thankfully she didn't mind.

Present Time!

Lot's of cute outfits!
I guess Baggi really like that one!
Livi really enjoyed helping!
This is a puppy from Nora. Funny story about this puppy is that her Nina Laura bought her the first version of this dog back when Juliana was about 3 months old. To say she loved that dog would be an understatement. Well, as time passed, the dog got a bit dirty and who am I kidding, we just got so tired of this dog who would play his little tunes whenever he wanted without even being prompted. So the dog ran out of batteries and he went into a "permanent retirement". So you can imagine her excitement when she opened the pink version of this new and improved little dog. I think she plays double the songs and even has a light up heart. So, thank you Nora, this might have been her favorite gift; and I'm sure the songs will be a nice addition to the soundtrack of my life, along with Mickey Mouse music.
So the next day, which was actually Juliana's real birthday we went to eat at Twisted Root with Aunt Teresa, Dylan, Uncle Ray and Aunt Julie. Livi was making bad choices so I had to remind her to "change her attitude".
Looks like she got the message
Daddy and the birthday girl.

And after Twisted Root, Juliana asked to go to Costco and Lowe's. She loves to go shopping. And like any good responsible parents we decided to take cute pictures by placing our new light fixtures on their ears.
It was hilarious!

I love these girls! They just grow up too fast!
