Cooling off in the Texas heat

It is sooooo hot in Texas-over 100 degrees. Even with the heat, I love playing outside. Mommy lets me cool off by playing with the water hose. I like to hold it myself and get completely wet. You can set the sprayer to make a mist that is soft and doesn't hurt me when I hold it close to my face.

Fun in Texas

Mommy and I made the long road trip to Tyler, Texas to visit family and friends. GG Paw, Mommy's Grandad, lives in Tyler, so we got to play together.
Nana and I had lots of fun playing in the water hose in the backyard. It is so hot in TX, but I still love being outside.
Mommy got to see her friends, too. Anne, Christine, and Natalie have been my mommy's friends for a long time. They came to see me in Michigan when I was only a few months old. They think I'm much busier now. Miss Christine has two little boys that I got to play with.

Mommy gave me a new food tonight. I thought it was yummy but a little tricky to eat.
Mommy says I'm getting to be such a big boy and that means eating big boy food. I like big boy food much better than baby food. My favorites are crackers and grapes. I say "ka-ka" for crackers.
Hmmm...this is fun to play with.

Proud to be an American

Happy Fourth of July, Y'all! Now that I'm back in the South, I've been hearing people say "y'all". It's kind of catchy.
I celebrated my second Fourth of July with my Aunt Kimberly, Uncle Tim, and Will. We went to a parade, heard a band, and ate some yummy food. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see any fireworks because Mommy made me go to bed. Maybe next year.
Boy, was it hot! Will and I ate our lunches in our strollers. There were so many interesting things to look at that I didn't mind sitting in my stroller. Aunt Kimberly found these neat star decorations, too. I'm glad I live in such a great country.
