Well I see that I have not posted in about 2 weeks. I keep telling myself to load the pictures and I should post but well I have been letting it go. Sorry. My parents came in over the 4th of July. I had no babysitter that week so I took two days off of work (I have not been at my job for a year so I don't get any paid vacation time yet - otherwise I would have taken the whole week off.) We met my parents in Denver, hubby wanted to see a baseball game. So basically we drove 9 hours round trip for a baseball game. We met my parents, who live in Kansas City and spent the night in a beautiful hotel right in downtown. My parents, Mikayla and I went to a excellent restaurant and then we hit the pool. Mikayla loves swimming. The next day we went to the aquarium - Mikayla loved it! All we heard was fishy, fishy, fishy (I have to throw this in - right now Joe is outside mowing the law and Mikayla is eating dinner. She is awfully quite right now, so I just turned around and she is spreading yogurt all over her hands and arms!!! At least she is busy so I can write this)

Well after the aquarium we headed back to Gunnison. Mom and Dad babysat Mikayla the next two days and Mikayla had the time of her life. Mom sure does have a lot more energy than I do right now!

Other than that not much is going on. It is pretty hot here, hot for Gunnison is 85. We have a big blow up pool that Mikayla spends most the weekend in.

We are still working on potty training and it seems as if we have been stuck in the same place for a while. If is she is naked from the waste down she will use the potty, no problem but if she has pants or panties on she will go in them. Oh - pull ups - they are useless to her they are just like a diaper. I know if I was a stay at home mom she would probably be potty trained because we would be working on it all day instead of at night and on the weekends. I just wish we were past the diapers at this point because I she can hold it.

Well I better go and clean up the dirty girl!!

Here are the pictures of her getting dirty. Forgive the shaky camera, we need to get a new digital camera. Whenever I take pictures inside or in the evening (even with full lights on) I have to use night and in order to use night you have to hold the button longer - with an active 2 year old the pictures get fuzzy.
