Ro-Ro is working on her culinary skills!
We watched lots of baseball...which made for fun evenings at the ball field! Samuel's team won their district and had a good showing in the state tournament. We were very proud of him.

Our favorite time of day is first thing in the morning. We go outside to play and have a little Bible time before it gets hot.

This is one of the prettiest favorites I have for Rose. I bought this Gap diaper bag on ebay over two years ago for Lily when we decided to use cloth diapers part time. I needed a bigger bag and this one fit the need. It's a great bag with lots of space!
I really like the leather buckles and fringe around the side pockets.
There is a nice zippered middle pocket and lots small pockets on either side of the middle section for all the baby necessities that we have to tote around. Here is a list of things that are always in my bag...
- extra clothes
- a receiving blanket to use as a nursing cover
- a cloth diaper for drool, or spills
- the cute little duckie you see in the next picture. It holds roll of disposable bags for stinky diapers or wet clothes. You can buy these at Target and the rolls of bags are replaceable. This makes a great little shower gift.
- diapers and wipes of course!
- a jacket or sweater
Rose approves! Visit Sarah's blog, Fiddledeedee to share in favorite things!
Anna-Kate took this sweet picture of Rose this week:)

John Quincy Adams:• “Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [the Fourth of July]?" “Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity"?--1837, at the age of 69, when he delivered a Fourth of July speech at Newburyport, Massachusetts.
Read more quotes from our founding fathers here. If you've not ever read the Declaration of Independence, today is a great day to read it and be thankful!

She enjoys it too!
She smell so good after a bath with Burt's Bee's Baby Bee shampoo and wash. It's my favorite way to wash baby. It is so mild and gentle that no lotion is usually needed. But my favorite baby lotion is Burt's Bee's buttermilk lotion. A little goes a long way. The wash lasts a long time because it is so concentrated.
