Emily wore the dress I made her for Christmas.
She checked out all her gifts before the party started. She especially liked the tissue paper.
Emily and her cousin Lillian enjoyed playing in the pool.
Her Mommy made her get out because it was time for cake!
Her Nana (aka Kara's mom) made her a Duckie Cake.
After much discussion, it was decided that Emily should have the Duckie's head!
She didn't hesitate to see what the frosting felt like.
Emily thorougly enjoyed her cake!
She even licked the plate!
At the end of the day, when Emily was exhausted, she was happy to snuggle with Great-Grandma.

The "GO" space that you start on is Flagpole, and the GO TO JAIL space is "GO TO THE OFFICE". Jail is the director's office!
It was a lot of fun to do. Of course it took more time than I thought it would and by the time I was finishing it I was sick of the whole thing, but I will enjoy giving it to the camp.....my "Mitzvah" for the year.

So after work I went to Wally World (aka Walmart) to get a Patriotic tank top. Unbelievably there was absolutely nothing....NOTHING....patriotic in the store! I expected to see a display at the front door with Stars and Stripes paper products and clothing, maybe some small flags for kids to wave. There was NOTHING. I checked every department including the men's department for anything patriotic. NOTHING! You would never even have believed we have a major holiday coming up in just a couple of days.
After Wally World I went to KMart....again....NOTHING! I can't believe these major chain stores aren't taking advantage of a holiday to strip consumers of some of their hard-earned cash. Sadly, I didn't get a tank top. I'll wear last year's T-shirt. I'm disappointed that two of the major national retail chains don't have enough love of America - the land that made them great- to offer Patriotic wares so people can celebrate the love of their country.
