4th of July!

Beach babe ready to hit the pool!
Right after dunking her face in the water...

And again. She loved putting her face in the water and trying to blow bubbles.

Swimming with daddy!


Uncle Trev =)

Soaking up the sun with Grandma

More water fun with Grandpa!

Just the three of us!

We had a wonderful 4th of July! Saturday morning we headed down to Othello to spend the afternoon at my aunt and uncle's place. The weather was beautiful, 101 degrees and we were very thankful for the pool. Isabelle loved it... actually that's an understatement she was in heaven! We spent most of our time in the pool and ate way too much delicious BBQ foods. We headed back to Pullman to catch the firework show at our friends, the Waite's, house. They always throw a great party! Delicious food, yummy drinks, and great friends. Isabelle and Dillon even stayed awake to see the fireworks which did not start until about 10:15. They were exhausted, but were so good. Izzy loved the fireworks and pointed at each one saying, "Oooo!" She fits right in with the rest of the family's Oooo-ing and Awww-ing, but we'll save that for the Thompson firework viewings. =)
So I learned how difficult it is to photograph a walking 10 and a half month old when there are other kids running around! Above is a picture of Isabelle's sweet friend Colin. I used to babysit him when he was one and two years old and now he can carry my little one around. He tried to help with getting a picture of Isabelle, but to no avail!

Below is our first attempt at getting all the kids in the picture.

And we got one, but wait... Dillon escaped, darn!

Here's another attempt by Colin and Jake to get Isabelle to look at the camera. She was dotted on all evening, especially by the boys... watch out daddy! =)

On the move, yet again...

Colin was just determined to get a picture with little Izzy. I think this one will just have to do! =)

Hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July as much as we did!
