Finger painting!

In my continuing efforts to find new activities for Zoey to do.. I found bubble finger paint that we use in the tub... well I thought we would try it outside of the tub.. but was nervous about mess... so I came up with this...

Not to sure at first..

"Now I get it"

Figuring out that her thumb doesn't taste good covered in bubble bath finger paint!

Well maybe it didn't taste that bad..

Overall pretty successful.. it kept her busy for at least 15-20 minutes!

Good Girl...

Zoey was playing in her room by herself, a pretty common occurrence, and after a while we didn't hear anything... so I peeked in and found this..

We hit the jack-pot in kids! Not only being good but reading!

This is repeated over and over and over again... she loves to be scared..

After she will run back to her room and come out to be scared again..

Red, White, and Blues

This year for the 4th we headed over to the in-laws as part of the Doherty family reunion... We had a blast swimming, eating, and most of all hanging out with family!

Zoey in the cutest 4th of July dress EVER!

Mom and Uncle Johnny

Everyone hanging out trying to see a few fireworks!

Grandma and Sam

The Girls... Zoey and Sam

The next weekend we got to impose on Hayden and Jenn's 'stay-cation' to watch the Blue Angels. They rented a condo down on Pensacola Beach and we(Gary and I - Zoey was with grandma and pop) went over Friday night to watch the Blues Saturday afternoon.. It was an AMAZING show and one that everyone should see..

This was the view we had on the 17th floor.. the best part is the show is on the sound and the beach so we had a pefect view for both.

Since we had such great seats, I got some pretty great pictures... but the whole time I was torn between wanting to see the show live and taking pictures.

Fat Albert

This was the first of two times they came within a 100 feet of us!

Amazing perfect formation! This is pretty much how they fly the entire time!

The finale!

Overall AMAZING! The pictures don't do it justice.. can't wait for the next one!
