Jackie, Vivo, Natalie and Clark eating great food and enjoying the day.
It was hot and sunny. This is Natalie's hat. It doesn't quite fit me...
Mandy and Dan's rooftop paradise. Doesn't it look like Bali or some other tropical resort destination?
Dan has a dog named Dingo. Natalie really likes to look at Dingo, but she doesn't like to play with him because Dingo likes to lick Natalie's face.
When Dingo comes out, Natalie likes for Clark to carry her. She also likes to throw the toy for Dingo to fetch.
Little Toby was there as well, and he really enjoyed his first beer which was lovingly provided by his daddy Kevy. (Just kidding, of course he didn't drink any!)
Here is Toby being carried by Jackie yee-yee. He is so cute and cuddly!
The Simmons set up a little wading pool on their deck. Natalie came prepared with her swimming outfit and spent a lot of time in the pool. She loved it! Here she is playing with Vivo Yee-yee.
Auntie Esther joins in the fun!
We had to force Natalie to take breaks from the pool because she loved it too much and was getting all wrinkly from the water. Here we have enticed her out with some chocolate cake. Look at how relaxed everyone looks!
Natalie concentrating on getting the largest possible bite of cake.
Natalie finished the entire chocolate cake slice by herself (although she did generously offer me a few small bites).
Natalie is back in the pool and look who's joined her! It's baby Ava who is only 5 months old. She looks so small and Natalie is like a giant compared to her.
Natalie doing the "turtle" (that's what she calls it). She liked crawling around in the shallow water on her hands with her feet trailing behind her.
More turtling. It's crazy how much time she spent in the little pool!
Baby Ava enjoying the sun and warm water with her mommy Mandy.
Natalie trying to share the water balls with baby Ava. It's very cute to watch her interact with smaller babies because she can be very gentle and generous with them. She understands they are smaller and younger than she is.
Natalie's feet are almost unrecognizable after almost a full afternoon in the water. "Look at my raisin feet!" she says to Vivo Yee-yee who took this photo.
