We moved!

I hate moving. I don't know if there is anything worse then moving. We didn't even move very far, yet I loath it. Amelia wasn't quite sure what to think. The boxes were least one of us thought so.


Amelia is a fish. She loves to swim (or whatever toddlers do). Anyway, she has recently found it is fun to jump from the side of the pool. Her word for "jump" is "puh-jum". Yeah. Here are some pictures of her "puh-jum"-ing.


Nick is doing a summer associateship with a D.C. Firm. The firm had a family bowling night. It happened to be Amelia's first time bowling. She had a great time. The only thing we had to worry about was having her drop the bowling ball on someone. Nick and I bowled horribly, but Amelia had a great time!

Bees for the Nursery

It was our Sunday to do snacks in nursery. And, I didn't want to bring boring pretzels or goldfish. My Mom gave me this idea. Thanks Mom!

4th of July in Washington, D.C.

Hands down, 4th of July is the BIGGEST holiday in D.C. So, it is always fun to get involved with the festivities. We went to a parade, and I'm not sure if it was more fun to watch Amelia watch the parade or watch the actual parade.

We also attended a breakfast with our Ward. I brought firework cupcakes. You frost the cupcake, roll the top in colored coconut and then stick a piece of licorice in the top. Very cute. To color the coconut you put 1/2 C of shredded coconut in a ziplock bag and put in 2-3 drops of food coloring. Seal the bag and shake. In seconds you have colored coconut!
