My friend Lindsey and I had planned to take our littles to a local sprayground today...however, this heat is too much. Not a good day to be outside with babies. It's the 5th day in a row of 110+ degree heat index...Sooo, plan B. The Waterloo library it is! I LOVE this library. The kids section is wonderful. A very user/kid friendly layout, lots of books, puzzles and stuffed animals! I could spend hours here...it is fun to just BE here.
Yes...McKenzie HAD to wear a gymnastics leotard and a tu-tu. I tried to get her change before leaving the house, but she threw a fit. "Pick your battles" right? She is just SOOO excited to begin gymnastics classes next week. I DVR'd a "real life" USA competition the other day and she watches it OVER and OVER (she even listens intently to the judges critiques)...she somersaults and poses all over the living room floor. toooo cuuuute :-) She attempts the splits, but unfortunately, she is not near as flexible as her baby sister.

|McKenzie says "Here it is, I find it"!|
|Lyla finds it this time!|
|They both found it this time...check out Macy dancing in the background :-)|
|awww...look they're holding hands :-)|
|Kenzie and Lyla had fun hanging out in the "teen area".|
After the library, we stopped over at Grandpa's house for a quick hello...and he insisted on treating us to lunch at the Firebarn. Who are we to turn down a free lunch!
|This is such an amazing mural painted by Peyton Lewis. Kenzie was checking it out.|
|"Look mom, it's THIS big" says McKenzie|
|playing the big kid video games|
|of course, she had to try to climb up the fire pole.|
|She wanted to be just like her Aunts' Heather, Keri & Lisa. She heard they climbed it after a Fireman's banquet. haha I'll have to track down that photo and post it next time. but that's for another blog post :-) LOL|
