She's started this little head turning thing when I take pictures.

This time I went to my very local (and BORING) mall and let her play. She had a really fantastic time.
I also bought her new shoes--some pink Converse One Stars. She's being cranky this morning so these are all I could get of her wearing them. Cute, huh?

Maggie likes to tease lately. She's not allowed to touch that picture and glass bowl. She does though...a lot. She walks over, touches them, looks at me and shakes her head "no".

We spent some time at the mall today. I usually avoid these indoor play areas because I feel like they're germy but she's so deserving of some fun and it's too hot for a park. I only took a short clip of film but just imagine her running around wildly for exactly 30 minutes.

Here are some super cute pics of Maggie in Utah. She got into my sisters dress up box and found the devil hat. She kept it on all morning! She's wearing her BYU shirt special for her uncle Bri-Bri who happens to be a huge BYU sports fan.
She also somehow reached the wrist strap on my camera and pulled it down from the counter on her face--left a big mark. She's being difficult so this is the best I could get of the little injury (below her right eye). It's not too obvious here but when looking directly at her it's pretty dark and swollen.

Brian is doing well after a very intense week in the cardiac intensive care unit. At one point we almost lost him but he had other plans.
My crazy and terribly dysfunctional family can really pull it together in a crisis!
Maggie was AMAZING! You would never guess this was her third week of traveling. She was stuck in a hospital where she provided moments of sweetness, joy, and levity in a pretty scary situation. She rocked it when she needed to. I am so terribly impressed with my child.We're now left with figuring out the next steps--even the doctors seem unsure.
We stayed in a town called Frankenmuth which was about 50 miles away because Pigeon just couldn't provide the kind of accommodations we needed. Frankenmuth was fantastic! It was gorgeous and full of fun. We visited all the fun shops--including Bronners CHRISTmas Wonderland. We watched the river boats and we ate a lot. Some of us went on the carriage rides.
The first trip to Pigeon was to spend the day on the family farm where the grandmother gave birth to and raised 9 children! Maggie had a blast. They had a little "train" for the kids that she spent a great deal of time in.
The second day we went to Pigeon we had the the big open house bash then took a tour of the town courtesy of Patrick's mom. She called a conference line on my phone and we had a convoy of cars behind us, each with their own cell phone dialed in to listen.
After that we headed to Lake Huron for bit. Maggie loved it and felt very comfortable with beaches and water after her trip to Florida.
A lot of photos were taken by family members so I don't have them yet to post. I'll get a pic of Maggie with her great grandmother posted as soon as possible.

Sorry for the lack of posts today. I'm so terribly overwhelmed with all this travel and lack of schedule and sleep. Here are a few pictures that I thought were cute.
Does Maggie look a little greasy in the below picture? Yes. She is eating buttered noodles and just simply cannot keep her hands out of her hair. That wet look is actual butter. Well, she smelled delectable.

Here she is playing in the sand with cousin Sydney.
Watching videos with cousins Eamon and Ciara.
Patrick did a couple of days of golf. I got a day at the spa. I've never done more than one treatment at a time when going to a day spa. This was an all day event with mineral pools, facial, massage, pedicure, neck wraps, and a spa lunch. THAT was livin'!!
The best beach time for us was low tide when Maggie could run around and chase the birds.
