War Wounds…

August 1, 2009

So the misses was playing out side, and well the pictures explain it all!  She took a bit of a spill.  I guess this is what happens when you try and hunt down the neighbors cat!




For the Grandma’s

July 30, 2009

Emmarie has been keeping busy since quarantine began on Wednesday.  She is quite the house cleaner!  She’s been helping with the laundry and sweeping the floor.  I knew there was a reason for having kids!  No really if I had known she was this talented I’d have taken more days off work.  All kidding aside, she does miss both her Grandmas.  The two week will be over before you know it.  Here are a couple new pictures for you.  Enjoy!!



Fourth of July weekend!

July 6, 2009

So we had an amazing Fourth of July weekend.  Definitely ranks up there as one of my favorite.  Thanks to Eric and Shannon for having all of us at your house for hot dogs and burgers on the 4th!  The beach was perfect this year, finally a non overcast weekend.  Emmarie saw the fireworks for the first time and fell in love.  It was the perfect ending to a fun day listening to my little one Ooh and Aah.  On Sunday we spent a fun family day down at Trail 1, Dad did a little bit of surfing while Em and I built sand castle after sand castle.  Nothing ends a weekend better than an impromptu garage picnic with the neighbors!  Thanks you guys for coming over and hanging out. 

We are so happy it’s Summer

Herman needs some attention too!

June 28, 2009

So we keep hearing about Herman’s squirrel hunting abilities, here are a few photos courtesy of Grandpa Rick.  These were taken on Friday, their Grandpa/ Herman hangout day!


This is not Herman just posing for the camera, this is his sly belly crawl! 



I can read his mind…He’s thinking the squirrel has no idea he’s coming!


And there it is!  The prize between his ears!

****No squirrels were harmed on this past Grandpa day! (I can’t promise anything about the past Fridays)

To catch you all up a bit…

A balloon fixes everything!

This teething toddler was so happy when the nice lady at albertsons gave her this pink balloon. Thankfully we haven’t lost it yet!
