Best Buds

When Ryleigh started walking Lizzie was not a big fan. She would move clear across the room when Ryleigh came by her. Now she enjoys Ryleigh coming around most of the time. I think she purposefully blocks Ryleigh's path sometimes to watch her try to get around. Lizzie lets her pet her, tug on her ears, poke her eyes, etc.

This afternoon was the first time I witnessed this though, and it was so stinking adorable. When we are on the floor Lizzie thinks it is time to play and roll around with us because we are at her level. Ryleigh was laying on the floor and Lizzie came over and started rolling around, playing and giving kisses. This went on for a good 10 minutes, all the while, Ryleigh was giggling and having a good old time.

It is amazing to me that one crazy, hyper dog can be so gentle around Ryleigh.

You know Ryleigh is sleepy when...

she is found laying on the floor somewhere with a blanket.

This is what I woke up to this morning

Ryleigh lounged back on Dad's pillow eating her breakfast. Priceless!

We came home from vacation and found...

tomatoes on our topsy turvy! It really does work.

Family Reunion

We, along with my parents and one of my younger sisters, went to my oldest sister's house in Southern Georgia for the McDowell Family Reunion for a week. My youngest sister and her family and my brother and his family weren't able to make it and they were missed.

We started the fun out with a photo op at Driftwood Beach.

Sunday my nephew was baptized.

Then we celebrated the 4th with some fireworks and glow sticks

Monday we headed down to Florida for a few days. We went to Daytona Beach first. There were awesome boogie boarding waves that we all had a blast trying out.

Ryleigh wasn't too sure about the moving water under her feet

but had fun playing in the sand with her cousin Ashlyn.

Next was an air boat ride at Camp Holly to see some gators.

Kids had to wear a life jacket and this was the smallest size they had. Ryleigh hated it and the loud boat until she was on her dad's lap. Yep, she's a daddy's girl.

Then we spent 2 days at Kennedy Space Center. Devin wished we could have spent 3. My sister was rushing him because she doesn't like to look at things under glass and he has to read everything that is under glass:)

We had some tasty southern food, had fun playing games, swimming in the pool and just enjoyed hanging out with everyone. Thanks Harrisons for letting us crash your house for the week. We had a blast!
