{Life Lately} Homecoming Parade

Yesterday was the high school's homecoming and the joy of living in a small town is that we got to have a parade! The Student Council at the high school puts it on and does a great job. The local sports teams all normally have a float (or a truck and flat bed trailer to show off all the kids) and so do the middle school and high school sport teams. There were also floats for the high school grades and other random items that change throughout the years. We got to ride in the middle school float for the cheerleaders and volleyball players. Lily wasn't sure at first but then she found Skittles!!

Here she is after the parade. Her outfit was too cute not to photograph but she wouldn't look at me for very long. I LOVE the boots! They are from Old Navy and I want them in my size (so does every adult that's seen them that likes boots). And of course there's pink in the outfit - her shirt and leggings. The skirt is cute too and I'm glad it still fits because it hasn't seen a lot of use!

Lily already knew she liked suckers and she definitely enjoyed a lot yesterday. Here she is showing off her favorite candy (well, her favorite might actually be M&Ms).

This was her yesterday morning with her jean jacket on and her hair wet from her bath. I love that when she says cheese she gets this biggest smile on her face. And yes, our tile floors have the biggest grout lines ever for small tile. It'll all disappear some day.

{Life Lately} Lily's Hair

Miss Lily has some crazy hair and this picture shows what it looks like in the morning and without any assistance from a comb or leave-in conditioner (a must with her hair!).

She's also playing with my ancient iPod that she calls the "white phone."

{Life Lately} Boating Fun

My parents, Doug, Lily and I went boating last weekend and here are some of the pics. We went on a nearby river and it was still pretty high from all the flooding. It was nice and we went to the little island that no one was at luckily (it was packed the last time we went) so we got out and went swimming. My mom and I look for rocks but didn't find many keepers. I did, however, find a small snake that most likely was a copperhead. Luckily it kept it's distance as we circled each other so I could walk past it.

Driving the boat with her Babby. She loves to drive the boat!

The view of the river with hardly anyone on it. Soooo pretty!

Walking on the rocks. Luckily the island we went to is rocky and not sandy or muddy. We forgot her water shoes but her hippo crocs worked great!
Swimming in her "green boat" and showing off her skills! She loves swimming!
Hanging out with Babby and Bapa!
A funny story that happened while boating... I forgot her swim diapers at home and we took her regular diaper off so it wouldn't swell up. We weren't thinking when we came back on the boat for lunch and after we were done eating, I noticed something odd on the floor. The floor of the boat is a grey color and this was brown. I quickly realized what it was and looked at the culprit. She was pooping! And because she had nothing on and the swim suit is too large for her skinny butt (don't I wish that was my problem!), it slid right out! It was hilarious. Doug had to wash her off in the water and get everything else out.

After we continued swimming, we got poured on! A big storm came through and soaked us as we were trying to get out.
