Emmy loves bath time. After seeing how much she enjoyed her trip to the pool with mommy and other friends, we’ve given her more and more baths. She’s lucky enough to have a bathroom all to herself, and she loves to play with her rubber duckies. Also, dad got too much sun helping out at the student picnic that day.
Our neighbors invited us to see the fireworks display they put on for us before we hiked up a mountain to see the fireworks show in nearby White Rock. Emmy enjoyed her seat on Dad’s footrest, and likes the fireworks with pretty colors the best. Also, she likes staying up late – she didn’t get to bed until 11:30 that night!
We played in a softball game with our church on the Fourth of July. The girls were gracious enough to play with Emmy, who was excited for Dad, Grandpa, and Uncle Christian to all get hits!
Emmy was once the proud owner of this Elephant, which was given to her by her Uncle Christian after he won it for her at Bumpers, an arcade we went to in Washington. Tragically, the elephant was too large to fit on our airplane home, so we had to return it for Oscar the Grouch. She loved the elephant very much and even nicknamed him Stampy. However, we believe that Emmy didn’t enjoy the elephant as much as Christian, who couldn’t stop smiling as people commented about it when we left the mall. It was about four feet tall, and he will be sorely missed.
