SIP (Summer in Progress)

I haven't posted in awhile. Here's what I've been doing! I went on a missions trip to Mississippi with my church. It was really fun! 3 of my best friends went, I made lots of new friends, and we were able to help many people. Here is a group picture. I'm the one on the bottom left. (Yes, I know my eyes are closed. The sun was bright, and we took pictures with about 20 cameras)
We're next to what used to be a bank. All that's left is the vault. For July 4th, we went to my grandparents house. It was great! We went swimming, and then watched fireworks at our friends lake house. In this picture, I'm with my cousin Reed (who asked for the Lion cloth) 'being' a sparkler. He's my buddy! We had a great time together. Here I am actually holding a sparkler. I know it's blurry, but it's the only one I had. I actually got burned, but it really didn't hurt much. The day after we came home, my cousins from Texas came! I hadn't seen them in a year, and we had so much fun! Austin is 6, Brett is 4, and Addison is 11/2. I felt 6 again! Austin and I did everything from making "Flower Fairies" to writing books (we wrote 2, Allie, the Princess who Loved to Ice-Skate and Caroline, the Princess who Loved to Draw. She wrote the stories, and we both did the illustrations.) to having a tea party! Here's a picture. It was really fun! I miss doing things like that. :) They were here until yesterday. It was sad to see them go, but I'm flying to Texas in a few weeks, so I'll see them soon. It's been a great summer so far!

What fun! My granddaughters love tea parties. Hope you have a wonderful time in Texas. We're going to Pharr, Tex.(at the southern tip)next year for my niece's wedding. Can't wait to see all the different birds that winter there. :)

I liked having that tea party with you! Remember, I drank three cups! I've been really well, as you know. I think that you are a great cousin! Whenever you want, you can leave a comment on my blog.
