Shake It Jules!

Jules loves to dance to any sort of noise and/or music. This is the first time I've seen her shake her booty like this though. She knows exactly how to dance to certain songs. She just has a natural talent for it. She did not get this from me that's for sure.

What a week!

Well it's been a really busy week. Today we went with Brett's parents up to Butterfly Lake and it was the first time I've ever been fishing. Well, I had gone when I was little but don't really remember. I brought in the very first fish of the day. We ended up taking home 15 fish. It was a lot of fun and Jules even had a good time. We bought year long fishing licenses so if anyone ever wants to go fishing, let us know. Thanks for letting us tag along Ross and Tammy.

Gotta love a baby cheesing it for a picture.
Jules even helped Brett bring in a fish. It was so beautiful up there.

My sister is also in town and brought her little dog Toby with her. Jules has loved playing with him. Here she is feeding him some of her pizza.
This is Jules being helpful and sitting still for over a half an hour while we built a new playground in my parents back yard.
Some of the nieces playing in the little pool my mom bought them. It has been so hot the last couple of days.
So my mom and dad finally decided that since they have 12 grand kids, and 3 of them actually live with them, that they should get some sort of play set for them. So while my sister is here with her 4 kids we went and bought one from Sam's Club. The bad part is that we had to put it together. The box had a comforting message on the front. "WARNING: it takes 2 skilled people 20-24 hours to put together." Here are some step by step pictures of the progress. I was going to put up the progress that we did every 2 hours but that turned out to be a lot of pictures. I just hope the kids will appreciate all the hard work and sweat in the hot sun...

The final product. The kids love it. Even when I put Jules up in the top part, she just can't stop smiling and talking. I think they will all have some fun and get some fresh air by playing outside now.
To add to our news, Brett got a job at MyFamily.com or TGN. We don't know exactly what he will be doing yet but we are excited. I knew something would come along and it's the job that he really wanted so we are very excited and counting our blessings.

My mom also got major surgery last week so we have been taking care of her. She's a tough one, and stubborn so she doesn't like us to help her if she doesn't need it. She is recovering quite well though.

My brother also had is appendix out which was a huge shock since we were with him a few hours earlier and he wasn't complaining about any pain.

It has now been a year since my cousins baby girl passed away from SIDS-Sad days. She was the happiest and cutest baby ever and is very sorely missed in the Naumann family.

I am right on schedule with my training of the half marathon I'm doing in August. To top it all off, Independence Day is tomorrow and all the festivities that come along with that. We have been really busy and are really tired but hopefuly we can celebrate hard and enjoy the freedoms we have.
