After we were done, we went to the University Co-Op downtown and bought our UT emblem for the car. It is tradition in our house to get a Longhorn emblem on every car we own! Saturday night, Mark & Sandra came over and we watched Eagle Eye, while discussing topics such as babies (Sandra & me talked about that) & putting surround sound in our living room (that would be Eric & Mark talking!) We had a lot of fun and need to do that more often!
Sunday Bella officially turned 2 1/2! She is just so big now! She kept running around saying "It's my birthday!" We tried explaining, but no luck! After her nap and lunch, we took her to the small waterpark at Old Settler's park. She absolutely LOVED the waterpark! We only got to stay for about an hour because it was literally 107 degrees outside and the sun was just beaming on us the whole time.
So we came home, got bathed, and made a big dinner. Overall, such a great weekend!!
Now we are getting ready to go back home next weekend for Austyn's 10th birthday party! Bella cannot wait!

So Friday we took Bella to Pigtails & Crewcuts to finally get her hair cut. It's the only place we will let them cut her hair and to tell you how long it has been, the lady at the counter asked, "Was the last time she was here in April 2o08?!" "Yep" I said and told her how my husband isn't fond of cutting his precious daughter's hair. Well, since we've been well over 100 degrees for 10 months now, I figured it was time to give the girl a break and chop it all of. And that we did! She got 6 inches cut and her beautiful hair now sits just at her shoulders! She is so darn cute with the new 'do!!
This was July 4th, but you can see the cute hair!
So, onto July 4th. It was such a wonderfully fun day for us! We started by going back to the old neighborhood for the July 4th Celebration, and they outdid themselves. Firemen spraying from way up high trying to help cool the kiddos off, face painting, train rides, bands singing, etc. Bella just loved it. We all 3 hopped into the "Choo-Choo Soul" (That's what Bella calls every train she sees or rides on!) and went around the park. When we were done we came back to our neighborhood, where the RRFD were letting the kids go into the firetruck. Bella actually sat in the drivers seat for a good 5 mintues just playing and looking at everything!

Afterwards we went home to rest up for the park that evening! When we got there, we got everything set up in a matter of minutes, and Bella got to play for hours with us and Grandma & Grandpa. Then Ed, Kathy, & Matthew came and played with her, and Aunt & Sandra & Uncle Mark got there right before the fireworks started and got to spend some time with her as well! She just loved it!! The fireworks were spectacular and Bella was in awe! She had so much fun she fell asleep in the car before we even made it out of the parking lot!! Great 4th of July!!

On Monday morning I was at work like usual when I started having immense pain on my right hand side and in my back. So I ended up leaving work, and going to my doctor who told me she thought it was kidney stones (again!!) and that I needed a sonogram & CAT Scan today. So I call to make the appointment for those and they can't get me in until Wednesday! What?! I ended up meeting Eric at home and going to the ER. After lots of tests, a CAT Scan, and more tests, they found out I have a kidney infection! Let's just say painful!
