Quincy Family Reunion

ALL the Quincys, and I mean all, even Joni for a few hours, got together over Labor Day and headed up to Pineview.  We stayed at Wolf Creek, and had so much fun all being together.  We had Just Dance tournaments, played at the Eden Park, did a little early morning waterski :) and even got to go swimming before the pool closed.  We also had some family pictures taken, and I think they turned out pretty great!  Mostly because of the cool family we have. :)

Lagoon, Red Boots and Ponytails

Every year my work does a Summer party at Lagoon.  Last year E was just a little thing, so this year was a lot more fun.  We got to take her on Odyssey, and she got a little wet, a couple kiddie rides and the merry-go-round.  Don't mind my funny/fake smile in the picture, I was really having fun... E however, really liked it.  She was pretty content to do just about anything.  We took her into Lagoon A Beach, and she was in Heaven.  Boy, does this kid love the water.  I'm in trouble.

E got some new Red Boots for Quincy family pictures this week, and she can't get enough of them.  She brings them to me and says, "boots".  As you can see, she will wear them with anything, actually, she will wear just about anything.  That is a 3-6 month Elmo onesie I got for a baby shower.  She thinks it is a great T Shirt.  This girl has a mind of her own.

We have ponytail!!  She absolutely hates it, but I can't resist, it is SO CUTE!  She reaches up and grabs it, and says "ow, ow", but she eventually forgets about it.  As you can see, she is thrilled.

She is starting to say a lot of things.  She picks something up almost everyday, I swear.  My new favorite is "Thank You".  I must say it to her a lot, cause she says it after she does anything.   She still absolutely loves Elmo.  First thing she says when she wakes up is "Elmo?".  We watch a lot of Elmo at our house, mostly she just wants it on while she plays with her toys.

Elliott starts Day Care at my neighbors house next week.  I have been fighting with myself about this for months now, but the working at home thing with an almost two year old is NOT working.  It is impossible, actually.  Especially my almost two year old, who can't seem to do anything by herself.  I also think she needs some social interaction.  Mom is cool and all, but she needs to be around other kids her own age.  (see my justification?)  She is going to go for 4 hours Tuesday mornings.  If that works out, then I will put her in every other Thursday morning.  We will see how it goes. 

We are all happy at our house.  Elliott is growing bigger, and starting to figure out the eating thing.  We still have our weeks and days where she chooses to eat very little, but for the most part I think that is pretty common with Toddlers.  I am busy at work, and Josh is watersking as much as possible.  We are sad to see the days getting cooler, as we are every year.  We sure do love the summertime!
