Fourth of July Festivities!

July has been a busy month! We started off by going to Peggy's in Nehalem for the annual "reunion" weekend (before July 4th). The first pictures are from then (and we visited the beach in Bay City too). Isn't the picture of Malia & Jacob so cute?? He is the son of Peggy's friend Sally...and they get along great. They look like they could be brother/sister.

The next pictures are from the July 4th parade in Hillsboro. It was a HOT one.....but we had fun. My 2 beefs from the parade: 1. Why don't the jets fly over anymore at the start of the parade? 2. Where is the parade/candy getting etiquette? Don't people know the space in front of the curb you are sitting on is YOUR CANDY GETTING SPACE??? Please teach your kids this. It is so annoying! :O)

Malia's Dance Class

Now that it's Summer...and Malia is out of preschool for a few months, we decided to take a ballet & tap dance class through Tualatin Hills Rec. Center. She **loves** it! It is an 8 week class, and they alternate ballet & tap each week. Malia especially loves taht she gets to take the class with Mia Coats. That's her in the pink top and shorts next to Malia.
These pictures are from the first day of class - when we got to stay and watch. She now has an "official" dance leotard, tights & fun!

2. Malia playing dress up in the garage (and waiting for me to come out and see her).
3. Alex on his fire truck.

Happy Summer!
