Playground Fun

Mommy and Grandma Lai took me to the park on Saturday before we went to pick up Daddy from the airport. Grandma pushed me on the swings.
I showed Grandma one of my favorite things to do on the playground: Shake-shake-boom-boom!

Mommy and Grandma Lai took me to a furniture store in Naperville to look at a big girls' bed for me. I like trying the beds.
I was pooped from all the hard work.
We went to the DuPage Childrens' Museum later in the day. I like to drive the bus!
I also like to bang on the drums!
There was a boat-making exhibit that I enjoyed playing with.

Children's Museum Outing

Mommy and Grandma Lai took me to the Children's Museum in Glenview today. I played with the railroad cars. 
I also served as a field doctor. I checked a baby with a stethoscope. 

I liked playing outside and driving my airplane.

Pediatrician Check-up

Last week, on July 18, Mommy and Daddy took me to the pediatrician's office for my two-year checkup. The doctor measured me. She said I weigh 33 lbs., am 36 1/2 in. tall, and have a head circumference of 19 1/2 in. This is 95%, 95%, and 90-95%, respectively. My BMI is 17.4

Outlet Mall Outing

We went to the outlet mall this afternoon. I got to ride on the carousel a few times.
I also rode in Mickey Mouse's car. I agreed when Mommy said, "One more time only, ok?" and promptly got out of the car I was in... but went to the next car! I was upset when Mommy took me out of the ride corral.


I like driving around my car which Grandma Lai sent to me. Daddy spent an hour late at night on Wednesday or Thursday to assemble it!

Ride tricycle. Need helmet!

Look what Mommy got me for my birthday - a new trike and Elmo helmet! Best. Birthday. Ever.

Expert Kayaker (Super Summer Vacation - Sunday)

I got to go on the paddle boat with Mommy and Daddy on Saturday, but I was such an expert that I decided to row a kayak instead on Sunday morning before we had to leave Gordon Lodge.
No wonder it was so hard paddling...I had to paddle for Mommy!
I played in the paddle boat for a while, practicing my Elizabeth Taylor glamour pose.

Super Summer Vacation - Saturday

On Saturday, Mommy and Daddy took me in the paddle boat. It was fun but I didn't get to do much except sit and look around. We went far out in the bay and saw the sea gulls. 
After paddle-boating, I decided to wear my life jacket around the beach for a while.
I played by the beach, wading into the water.

I like playing with the beach toys. I would often drop the toy shovel and then ask Mommy where "my tools" were.
Mommy thinks I am a small version of Daddy...except chubbier and in a dress!
We had lunch at the resort cafe. It was nice sitting under the beach patio umbrella.

Super Summer Vacation - Friday

Mommy and Daddy took me on vacation this weekend to Daddy's family reunion at a resort up in Door County, Wisconsin. On the way there, we stopped at an Applebees where I enjoyed playing with the salt and pepper shakers.
When we got to the resort, I quickly found the kayaks. I wanted to go out in the water right away and paddle.
We soon gathered for dinner. Where's my food? I want it now!
After dinner, Mommy and Daddy surprised me with a birthday cake!
Everyone gathered to wish me a happy birthday. I got my own cupcake! But I didn't really get into the cake, unlike last year when I made a mess of it.
After dinner, everyone gathered on the patio. I was the center of attention!
It was a beautiful evening.
As the sun set, I got to play a little more in the sand with the toy trucks and sand shovels and other toys.
I got to open some presents from Grandma and Grandpa Meyers and Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Mark. I love presents!

Park Playtime

This afternoon, Mommy took me to the park close to my new house. It was warm, but not nearly as hot as it has been the last few days. I like jumping on the bridge while yelling "Shake-a, shake-a, boom!"
I like climbing up and down stairs.
I like riding on the frog.

Standing at Attention

Mommy let me play out in front of my new house. I like to stand in front of the garage doors.

July 4th Fun

I went to visit my friend Owen. We went to a kids' carnival. It was very very hot outside, so we didn't stay out long. I rode in the ferris wheel for a while.
I hung out with Owen.
