Winding Down

The last few weeks of summer have been busy.  We have enjoyed a few firsts for Delainey along with a few annual activities. The Brown County Fair was in town, so we took Delainey to her first rodeo.

She enjoyed watching the horses and sheep; especially when 4 and 5 year olds rode the sheep. She kept saying "they fall down", and she was right, those kids all fell down. When Daddy asked her if she would like to ride a sheep, she said "nope"!  We have a few more years to work on her. :)

The next day we went to a salon and had our first real  haircut.  Delainey didn't crack a smile until the beautician asked if she wanted a sucker. Then a little smirk came on her face.

We went to Rosholt for the annual Threshing Bee where we spent some time with the Rosholt class of 2001. We crashed the 10 year reunion and spent some time on Lake Traverse on a pontoon. It was a beautiful day, and Delainey and Delilah had a great time getting to know each other.

The girls got to take turns honking the pontoon horn.  It was a big hit!

Next up was the Threshing Bee parade!  The three musketeers put on their shades, grabbed their buckets and were off to collect some candy!

We have also enjoyed some fun nights of playing piano, singing with music books, playing with babies, purses, glasses, cooking in the kitchen, swinging, sliding, and just having fun!  She entertains herself so well, that I have to go check on her when the house gets a little quiet. The picture below is what I found one of those times. She was getting out her diapers to put one on the baby. She will be so helpful someday!

Delainey loves to sing songs... some favorites are Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle, ABC's, and Row Row Row Your Boat.

The picture is a little blurry, but it was too cute not to post.  Delainey grabbed some piano sheet music, sat down in the foyer, and started singing. What a joy!
