Summer week 2!

We are now 2 weeks down of our summer...I am feeling like time is flying and I am dreading August...when I have to go back to work.  There are some challenging days with Emma...I really never get a break since she does not nap.  Thank you, television, for being a constant entertainment for an hour or so....(stop judging me...it's not like I let her watch BET or anything...always something educational and wholesome...)

One afternoon, we walked to the mall to meet Brent, who was getting his hair cut there.  We bought some new shades...and Emma loves them!  She actually wears them, and I think it's the cutest thing ever.

We also went out to the lake one day.  Emma is loving the water and boats.

For her birthday, she got a LeapFrog 2, and she is enjoying learning how to use it.  She's not addicted to it just yet, and it's come in handy when I need to run errands and have her be occupied.

One day, we were total rednecks and had a backyard pool.  I even got fancy and put her slide in it...

She's also mastered peeing outside.  I know some parents would be appalled, but I am quite proud.  It has been a struggle because Emma would not pee unless on a toilet...well, this isn't always possible at the lake or beach.  And let's face it, if you don't pee in the lake or ocean, then you're just plain lying.
Her only request is that she has to pull her suit off...so she just squats right down! 
Brent went to Nashville for work this weekend, so Emma and my parents and I went to the lake in Gates County.  It was hot, but we had a fabulous day!!!  We skied, swam, played, and hung out.

For dinner, we stopped in at Bojo's!!

Sunday, after church, my parents took Emma to lunch so that I could go to the Bead show in downtown Durham by myself.  I had been to some before, and they are awesome!  I was taking pics for a friend who also makes jewelry but couldn't go, so I don't have good pics of the show, but just imagine tables and tables of this....

I got some great beads, and have already made a few new things (like I needed anymore!)  I'll do a separate post on that later this week.
Summer week 3 is going to be a HOT one!  It's supposed to be 100 most of the week.  We are hoping to stay cool inside and then headed to the lake this weekend, and then the beach the following week!
