DINNER OUT... Mom is on a business trip to Chicago for a few days and Aunt Pam and Aunt Jodi are watching the girls. For a treat they took them to their favorite Chinese Buffet for dinner. They both love the food and the staff loves to cater to them. Tonight, their waiter was excited to find out that Kianna was from the same province that he is. He comes from Nanning where we visited last October. He was so sweet with her and then started speaking to her in Chinese. She understood what he was saying and laughed, then told him NO Chinese!!!. He laughed along with us and talked to her in English.

WATERPARK... One of our favorite things to do in the summer is go to the waterpark. We get season passes every year and the girls have so much fun in the wave pool and on the slides. I couldn't wait to take Kianna. Today was her first visit and she loved it! She kept asking for "More". She is a tired, happy little girl tonight.

FAREWELL TO KINDERGARTEN AND SECOND GRADE... I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Caeline's class had a little ceremony to show highlights of the school year. The class sang a few songs including First Grade, First Grade (to the tune of New York, New York). It was priceless. Both girls loved their teachers. Mariah and Caeli have grown up so much this year, it makes me a little sad that they aren't little anymore.
