I had so much fun making paper bag puppets yesterday. My favorite part was using the glue stick!
I introduced myself to the puppets...I named them Ziggy and Stripey...and then I had a blast doing puppet shows last night behind our coffee table!

This weekend we had a special visit from some of my parent's close friends - Tony & Sara and their kids Sydney (7) and Christian (3).
Our parents weren't quite prepared for us to play at the beach - but that didn't stop us...we just rolled up our pant legs, took off our shoes & socks and had a blast!
My friend Amery and I had a view even better than front row seats at the track meet this weekend. We cheered "Go Eagles"!
I got to ride (in and out of the track stadium) on a water cooler! I guess it was extra strength training for the athletes.
Caleb let me listen to "Old McDonald" on his headphones during the meet.

My papa stopped to show me a rattlesnake that had been run over by a mountain biker during our wagon stroll in Peter's Canyon this weekend.
As you can see, I was pretty relaxed looking at the snake...but my mama was a little on edge...especially after Papa shook the rattle and she thought it was still alive. Yes, she screamed!!
This is an animated picture of me retelling the story of encountering the rattlesnake. I relived it over and over again and it made my parents laugh..."Papa picked up snake....Mama screamed AAHHHHH!...Oh, Jim!!!"
Then, of course, I wanted out of the wagon so I could look for snakes too!

For my birthday on Thursdsay, I visited Pretend City - a Children's Musesum in Irvine. I LOVED all the free play and exploration.
I was a grocery clerk.
A marine biologist!
A construction worker!
I helped my mommy make carrot cake cupcakes for the team to decorate after practcice on my birthday. I chose a snowman theme. Here I am overseeing the decorating with Brian (senior, captain, long jumper) on the team. The team also wrote down some advice and a memory of me for a time capsule I get to open when I turn 16!
I got to judge each athlete's "snowman" cupcake and the winner got a prize! Taylor had a creative black bow tie she made with black licorice.
