4th of July

Wow, we have had a lot of early mornings lately. We woke up early on Monday to get ready and go to the parade. Mckinley pretty much slept through the whole thing. She is so freaking awesome. She slept for 9 hours the night before. Woke up and slept for another few hours and I had to wake her up to go to the parade. Sara, I started putting her to bed early and she is doing amazing. She slept 9 hours that night, and then 9 hours and 40 minutes last night, then goes right back down again for another few hours. I owe you big Sara!!

Anyway, here we are at the parade.

Our seats are so awesome. We are in the shade the whole time. I wore my jacket during the entire parade and didn't even get hot. The weather couldn't have been better.

Here's Brandon sitting down on the blanket with the kids. He is so good with kids, I love watching him play with them. Mckinley is the luckiest girl in the world to have him as her dad.

I always take pictures of the big balloons. They are my favorite.

We had to take a picture of the Provo Temple model since that is where we got married.

We had a relaxing afternoon at home and then later that day we went to a bbq at the Gordon's. They keep their pool pretty warm so we thought Mckinley might just let us take her swimming.

And she did! She wasn't laughing or smiling in there but hey, she wasn't crying either. It was so fun to have her in the pool. Love that face!

What is it that is so exciting about holding a baby in the water? It's not like she could even do anything. She did splash around with her hands for a while but I'm pretty sure she didn't even know she was doing it.

Ha ha, she looks very unamused.

She has started sucking on her fingers now which isn't just cute, but so helpful! When her binki falls out she just sticks her fingers in instead and keeps herself happy.

Any of you that know me really well know that I get really excited about getting the mail. Well, living in our townhomes we have the group little gray mailboxes. There are four big boxes with keys on them. If a package comes for you, the mailman (or in our case, mail woman) puts the package in a big box, and then puts the key to it in your box. So, as far as getting mail goes, there is nothing better than having a key in your box!!
Usually if there is a key in our box it's for something I am expecting, a package from Amazon, or something like that. Well, today there was a key in my mailbox and I had no idea what it could be. I opened it up and saw that there was a package from AUSTRALIA! Then I remembered that my best friend Gabby told me she was sending something for Mckinley and a letter. What could be better???
Anyway, now that you are comletely bored with my story of getting the mail, check out what Gabby sent! The most adorable little pink Nike shoes. If anyone reading this knows Gabby, they know that she wouldn't send anything else but Nike attire. Mom, Dad, Warnicks? Am I right? :) They are adorable.

And they match perfectly with her outfit today. Thank you so much Gabby! And congratulations on getting married! An email is coming your way....
Mckinley and I went on a walk on the river trail this morning with Shellee, Chandra, Haley, and Brynlee. It was so beautiful. I forgot to bring my camera. Being home every day is seriously the best and the time just flies by. There is still so much I want to do today!!! I love my life.
