Great Big Smiles!

This $3 garage sale toy is a huge hit!

We love playing with our ice cream maker ball!

For the 4th of July, we went to the 2-year-old birthday party of a little boy in our ward, held at his grandparents' house. It was quite the party! There was a pool with a cool rock slide, tons of BBQ food, an enormous fireworks display complete with music and a patriotic slideshow, a zipline extending off their 2nd story deck, and more! The boys loved splashing in the little baby pool while we were waiting to eat.

I am frequently instructed by the way kids "get over it" so quickly. When I was a young girl, probably about 2, my mom said one day, "I'm sorry. I'm just feeling a little bit grumpy." I innocently replied, "Well, why don't you just get over it?" I ask myself that question all the time when I am feeling frustrated. And I am grateful to see the way my boys can bounce from absolutely outraged to overflowing with joy in minutes. They are so quick to forgive and forget. My days are significantly brightened by their great big smiles!
