Too hot for broken AC… It may have taken a few attempts, but Emerson, Bela and I finally made it to Spirit Lake Saturday morning. We had a full yet relaxing schedule and beautiful weather for the Fourth of July weekend. Emerson explored Okoboji for the first time and has me convinced the Naber family needs a lake house! She picked up a few new talents while visiting – Grams unknowingly taught her to shake her finger at the dog when he barks. Maybe this disciplinary action will come in handy? Emme also discovered that she can let go of the edge of the couch and balance on her own for a few seconds! It was pretty amazing to see for the first time. I’m still in disbelief that my baby is growing so fast! The 10 month milestone is right around the corner!
