And on another note...Bryan got his test back from last Friday and he got a 97% on it!!! We (mostly him I am sure, but I was too) are EXTREMELY proud of this. And he is more than half way one with his finals! He graduates in 2 days! We are on the countdown!
And a shout out to our friends Nate and Sarah Pettitt. They had their second child, a girl, 8 lbs 1 oz yesterday and 3:39 pm. We don't know the details yet, but congrats to them! We will be stopping by their house on the way back to Denver, so we are excited we get to see their new addition!

So I let Kambria have a bath with bubbles. She LOVES baths, but loves baths with bubbles even more! She was content just playing with her toys, which happen to be beach toys, and the bubbles. I finished doing dishes and did some laundry while she played in the tub. Now mind you our bathroom is right by the kitchen and "laundry." So I just leave the door open but can hear EVERYTHING she is doing...so don't think I just leave her there without supervision...that would be DUMB!
So after I started the dishwasher I peeked at her and found this...
Then after she had a little rest for about an hour I woke her up and we made cookies together. It is coming down to the last week we are here in Chicago and we want to use up as much food as we can. So I decided to try and use up the flour and sugar etc...and what better way than chocolate chip cookies!
So Kambria helped me all along the way, and was pretty good at it too...
Here she is helping mix the dough in the bowl...
And of course she knows all about "tasting" the dough to make sure it is good... And then she has to watch the cookies bake...
And then taste the final product at the end! What a great little baker!!!
So we had a great day after a rough morning! Chocolate comes through again!

So on Saturday June 14,we decided to meet Bryan after he had studied for a while and go to Millennium Park and let Kambria playing the water. We all got a little sun, but no burns thanks to spf 50 baby sunscreen for Kambria and I!!! I love that stuff! We ate hot dogs for lunch and then played in the water.
I made sure to bring extra clothes for Kambria and to have the camera ready! It was a lot of fun seeing her enjoy the water as much as she did. She is such a thrill to watch and she enjoys life so much. Complete strangers even comment to us how enthusiastic she is and of course we agree!!! We love her a ton! enjoy the pictures. Also notice the prgoression of her hair being wet. Aspeciall how soaked she is on the last picture. :)
On the walk back home after playing in the water, we decided to make a stop at the Lego store. It was fun to see the big "sculptures", if you can call them that. Kambria would have enjoyed it even more, but we kept her in the stroller since she was a bit tired from all the running around in the water.
This is a replica of Chicago, made out of Legos! It is quite amazing!
