Claire LOVES to eat cake!! She is cleary my daughter. She actually prefers to just lick of the frosting, atta girl! She really enjoys helping out in the kitchen, mixing and adding ingredients. I love having her help, it makes a bigger mess, but I hope that I am instilling some good skills in her by having her help so early. You can see that she is happy with the finished product and can't wait to eat some sprinkles!

Claire's morning routine involves chocolate milk, a show and snuggles. This particular morning, she wanted to snuggle with Henry. He loved laying by her and she made sure they shared the 'big' blanket. I enjoyed it too, as I got to sip my coffee (while it was hot) and read the news on my phone!
Claire loves to have a dance party! To twirl around with a scarf, in something pretty is pretty much the ultimate in her world! This particular evening she got herself dressed. 2 pairs of shorts, one tutu, 5 headbands, some necklaces and bracelets, a tiara and to top it off she said "Momma, I need a flag!" So she ran and got it! She enjoyed blasting Spencer's clock radio dancing in front of the mirror in our room. Silly girl. I love the little person she is starting to become!
We tried to maximize the boat time this year. The summer started so late. We try to take out our friends and family whenever possible. Our good friends Matt and Tracey, parents of Addy (one of Claire's BFF's) joined us. The girls had fun swimming with their Daddies adn the Daddies enjoyed a cold bevvy in the cool water. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon if you ask me!!

Claire has been wanting to take Max to the river to play. She runs along the shoreline with him, Spencer throws logs for Max to swim too, and dips Claire in the river! She can't get enough. It's funny to watch her. She is so confident outside, which is nice to see. She is definately not afraid to get dirty or wet. And that river is freezing! I don't know how she does it!
We've been taking the girls to the waterpark all summer, and on this not particulary hot day, they decided to brave the water! Here are the girls, warming up with a towel and enjoying the sunshine!
