So you ask what did I do all day. Absolutely nothing. I didn't think she was going to be down for that long and then I kept thinking that she'd wake up in a little bit and never started anything. Oh well.
This morning as I walked into the gym the sweet lady at the front desk asked if I was expecting a little one. I almost inocently said, "What are you talking about?" :o) I guess I am officially showing. LOL I have seen them looking at me suspicously for the past week, I was just waiting for someone to say something. Nice.

Payton, Payton, Payton. After lunch she became very indecisive. She wanted to go to the park, she didn't want to go to the park. She wanted to go to the pool, she didn't want to go to the pool. It seemed like I just couldn't make her happy. When we got back from tthe pool I just decided to put her down for a nap because she would stop crying.
She went to sleep right away and stayed asleep for almost two hours. When she woke up she was hot, hot, hot and wouldn't stop crying. I felt so bad, we could tell she just didn't feel good but we couldn't figure out what was wrong. She had a temperature and we couldn't get her to eat or drink anything. Finally I just picked her up and rocked her until she calmed down.
I am glad to say that she seems a little better this morning. I just can't believe how hard it was for me to see her like that. It broke my heart.

I was torn between taking the quilt I have been trying to work on and scrapbooking. I opted for scrapbooking. I miss scrapbooking. I haven't done it in a while. To give you an idea, I am still trying to scrapbook my trip to Hawaii in, I think, 2002.
I do have plans to try and work on my hobbies during Payton's naps a couple times a week. So hopefully that will allow me to get caught up on my scrapbooking. Last night I got one set of pages done. Better than nothing. :o)
I hear we are going to make the craft night a monthly event. I can't wait for the next one.

I am suprised that we were successful. Neither of us had ever made jam before on our own and both of us have a history of not being good with recipes or directions. :o) All 3 batches turned out and all the jars of jam sealed. We are very excited. I hope it tastes super yummy.

Mondays are sort of my free day. We all get together and the kids play. It is so nice. Plus I love visiting with all my firends. :o) Yesterday we all went to Jessica's house for the play date. We talked about how different the play dates are now as compared to what they used to be like. All the babies are all mobile. They used to sit around and look at each other now they are all over the place. Even little Sadie was keeping up with all of them. Amazing!
After the play date and after Payton's nap we decided to take a little swim. I thought it was going to be really nice. After all it had been hot all day. Well yesterday it decided to cool off as soon as the sun started going down. Not that it was cold but it wasn't as warm as I had thought or hoped it would be.

Yesterday I pulled it out and spent an hour blowing up all the things on it. I took it out and hooked it up to the hose. It was so fun. She loved it, especially the little slide. She wanted to go down it over and over again.
I think I need to go back and check out those clearance racks again.
As a side note, Dave and I went to Cheescake Factory last night for our friends Anna's birthday. The food was super yummy and we had a really good time.

I had no idea how I was going to tackle this task. I mean little girls wiggle and squirm, how do you get them to hold still? Wouldn't you know that Dave had it figured out last night. :o)
Here are some cute pictures of both Daddy and Mommy's pig tails.

To add to the already great day my sister was able to come down for part of the play date. I was so excited. I love spending time with her and watching her with Caeden.
After lunch all of us went to the pool for a little while. It felt so nice because it was so hot. I think today will be another pool day. It warmed up early.
As a little flashback, on Saturday Dave, Payton, and I went on a little bike ride. We have a little trailer that she can ride in that hooks into the back one of our bikes. She seemed to enjoy it at first but I think it got a little hot and she started not to have fun. I can't wait to go again.

What a fun trip!
The reunion started on Thursday, July 2 so we had a couple of days to play and hang out before heading to Bear Lake. One of the days, we went to the pool in the development that Jen and Preston live. It was so nice because they had a baby pool and Payton just loved it. When we were swimming a thunderstorm started brewing in the distance but once the lightening started we had to get out of the pool. The storm came up on us really fast and soon was right over us. We ended up having to run back to Jen and Preston's house. Very exciting!
The reunion was a lot of fun. We stayed in huge cabins that overlooked Bear Lake. It was so nice getting to visit with everyone. Each day we had breakfast and dinner together and then did whatever during the afternoon. I think most everyone decided to hit the lake during the afternoon. Payton wasn't too sure she liked the beach at first. I think she takes after her mother and doesn't like to get dirty or be in water that she can't see her feet. :-) She did eventually warm up to the idea and had a good time.
Everyone was so nice and I had a great time.
