It's so fun to see how much Atalisa and Bria love playing together! Aty loves her sister to pieces, and can't wait for the day that Bria can run after her! I'm always telling her that she's still a baby and can't walk yet! Even though Bria is determined to do it soon! She's pulling up on everything, and is so much happier when she's standing! I can't believe how fast they grow up!

Aty  tried a few times to pick Bria up! At one such occasion I looked over and she had picked her up. I told her, "you can't do that she's too big for you!" So she just let go of her! Bria stood for a second, and then toppled over. Thankfully, she was on the carpet, and I had to tell her that was something that she couldn't do yet! 

Here are a few pictures that I took of the girls!

I love both of their beautiful blue eyes! Just like their daddy's!

"There is no better friend than a sister.  And there is no better sister than you."  ~Author Unknown

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of.  You know whatever you do, they'll still be there."

 "A sister is a forever friend."  ~Author Unknown

 "A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost."  ~Marion C. Garretty

"The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend."  ~Cali Rae Turner

 "An older sister is a friend and defender - a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights.  And sorrows too."  ~Pam Brown

"A sister shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams."  ~Author Unknown

"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.  She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.  She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.  She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.  Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child."  ~Barbara Alpert

Vacation pictures part 2!

It's hard to get the best of 2000+ pictures, and narrow if down to just a few! I love pictures and took a ton!

Here are a few collages that document some of the fun times we've had this summer!

Loving all the attention from Grammie and Grandpa!

Swimming, swimming, and more swimming! Aty was a little apprehensive at first of the water, but by the end of our time was a little fishy thanks for all her aunts and uncles who gave her plenty of quality time in the lake!  Bria loved the water too! They both are love the water like their daddy!

Part three coming SOON!

Vacation = Relaxation!

Road trips, lazy days, family, cool breezes, the country, sunshine,  swimming, the big city, enjoying each others company, making wonderful memories!

We were so blessed to be able to spend a few weeks visiting both of our families!  What fun times!

We were so glad to have all of my family together at once! Including all my married siblings who all happen to live in different states!

Fun by the lake!

Aty loved all the gardens and flowers!
The kittys were a real favorite too!! She definitely got spoiled from her Grandpa and Grammy, and aunt and uncles!
