I had a grand old time with my grandparents (Poppy & Grams), Aunt Courtney, Uncle Nathan & great-grandparents Grandma & Grandpa Presley-- slept all night every night, played hard, went potty like a big girl, ate all my food (and a LOT of it!) and didn't cry once for mom & dad... but I sure was happy when they told me "We're getting Mommy & Daddy tonight!"  I put down my fork and wanted to get my shoes on to go that very second.  When I saw Mommy, I could hardly believe it!  And Daddy.  (And Nina.  And GB.  And Tia Anna.)  I just kept saying Mommy & Daddy's names and my own the whole ride back from the airport, just because I could hardly believe we were all together again.

Happy Fourth!

Mom & Dad took me to an "Old Fashioned Fourth" at the Peterson-Dumesil house again.  I LOVED the inflatable slide (Daddy took me down), the watermelon, and some yummy roasted almonds.  Mommy even let me have some lemon ice cream!  It was nice and hot, like July the Fourth should be!
