What do you think?  Does she has a future in music?  Thankfully she has her dad and grandma's singing genes, maybe she can make a go of it combined with her harmonica skills!

And while she starts off a little slow, one smart 18th month old!  She will probably be a future zoologist, she loves naming all the animals in her animal book!

Daddy gymnastics

Rather funny that dad would be doing "gymnastics" with the girls since I am the one with the gymnastics background!  I'm sure they enjoy his version better, none of the "point your toes", "straighten your legs", "pinch a penny" and such, just fun flippin!

In case you didn't know....

this is what a double ear infection AND pneumonia looks like in a toddler:
And of course this happens when you are on vacation, in another state!  Poor little thing, did great on the drive, did a lot of coughing and sneezing, got to South Carolina Monday about dinner, she seemed okay, and Tuesday morning was a trip to urgent care!  Well, it was only slight pneumonia.  They still hit her hard with meds and look at her the next day:
We had way too short of trip, but our dear friends who we traveled to Ethiopia with were able to join us!  It was such fun!  There was a morning at Broadway at the Beach:

Big J and C
Little J and her Ethiopian travel buddy, G (they don't look all that thrilled do they?  Getting near nap time)

 The whole family!
 Big J went to the blow up jumpy thing area
Little J found this chair just her size.  No matter that is wasn't ours!  But ironically another family from Michigan!
A day at the beach

More fun riding bikes
Then our last night
Kids ready for bed, although little J didn't fall asleep for quite a while, wouldn't have guessed that by the picture, eh?!
One last "squeeze"
hmmm, I can see this picture now up on their graduation board........these two had so much fun together!

And just like that, the week was done, two days driving home and back to business!
