It is sad to say that we are still experiencing summer like conditions here in Phoenix but we are finally on the downswing into cooler temperatures. Thank goodness!!! To celebrate the change, we got together with family at Aunt Shannon's house. It was also Aunt Jennie's birthday along with a few other birthdays that were missed and coming up. The girls just love being around all the family but they are so shy when we first get there. Eventually they warmed up and got passed around to visit all the family members. They had a blast playing on the trampoline and pushing the big ball around the backyard.
I enjoy those family get-togethers so much. In a society that gravitates towards material things, it is just nice to sit back and make good family memories.

The Moore's have a pet turtle and the girls got to touch and check out this neat creature. They still think every animal is a kitty since we have 3 cats in our house. Anytime any other animal is around them or in a book or on TV, the girls say "kitty" we try to correct them but it is so darn cute to see them say that.
Here is Riley getting to know the Turtle:

And this is what happens when you try to pose both girls together. I am serious...this is how so many of our photos turn out. Riley was not having it at all.
But then she gave us a goofy grin
