caught playing

the girls snuck on their swimsuits (at 7:30 pm) and were playing so cute in their backyard pool ...

... and then when I finally coralled the girls into the tub, Liam wanted in on the action. He loves playing tubside, but his FAVORITE new hangout is the toilet. We have to remember to keep the lids shut because he'll swish his hands in the water and also drop items into the pot. And then there's his girly little yelp! He's had that since he was brand-new in the hospital.

(For an extra kick, listen to Bria's dialogue.)

10 months!

"Looka Lawka" Liam turned 10 months-old yesterday! He is 18 pounds, and actually measuring tall with a small head (all my kids have small heads). He's crawling like crazy and loves exploring and dumping anything he can.

While I was getting the girls their breakfast this morning, Liam was MIA. Here's where we found him. In the flour.

fun at the lake

We enjoyed a marvelous weekend with our close friends at their family lake house. We enjoyed boating, skiing, yummy food, playing games, chatting, relaxing ... Bria's favorite part was "swimming in the lake," and although Cali was scared of the boat she loved the water and playing with the doggies. What a blast!

this tube is known as "The Throne of Power"

happy 4th of July!

What a loaded weekend! The Parma family celebrated our Fourth of July holiday by watching fireworks at a minor league game with Grandpa Ricardo, then we had a pancake breakfast and bike parade with our ward, then went swimming and bbq'd at Aunt Amy's. Happy 4th! PS ~ Cali is recovering well from her repeat sclerotherapy treatment last week. She was a trooper at the hospital. It no longer hurts her to touch, and the swelling subsides daily.
