A Few Days With Poppop/Nannie

Jerry and Louise took the kids for three days this week so Jon and I could get some R&R before this baby comes (due date in two weeks). Here are some pictures of their time together--looks like they had fun!

Ava's New "Do"




Ava has been literally begging to have her hair cut off...I guess it's just too hot for her. We made her wait a while to make sure she really wanted to, then CHOP! I cut it this morning into a short A-line bob. She wants to donate the 10 inch braid to Locks of Love (after seeing her second cousin Sarah do the same).
We think she looks pretty darn cute!

Guess Who Lost Her First Tooth...


Ava was biting into a plum on the way home from VBS the other day and POP! Her tooth nearly came out. It took until the drive home the following day for her to extract it, though. She's not that into wiggling. But we think she looks awfully cute (and she kind of has a lisp now)!!!

Brawley 4th of July


Two little Nakies swimming in the pool.

Two little Nakies playing on the "Swing slide" as Boo calls it.

I couldn't resist this one!

Our good friends Steve and Brooke stayed with us last weekend and we had so much fun. I laughed so hard I thought I was going to go into labor. Jon and Steve got to play three different disc golf courses, Brooke and I went garage sale-ing (very successfully, I might add), and of course OMSI was on the agenda for the kiddos. It was also Steve's birthday (sorry for the not-great pic, you guys) and it was fun to celebrate with them. The next day was the 4th of July and when it got dark we sat outside watching the neighborhood and downtown fireworks and listening to the sirens...Steve (click on his name for a sound bite--did I spell that right?) said it was as close to a war zone as he'd ever want to be. Brooke was about ready to get the garden hose out and make sure our fir trees didn't go up in flames.
We had a perfect weekend with good ol' friends.

My sister Jamie gave me a gift certificate to this wonderful thing called Tastebook. It imports your saved recipes off of several websites (such as epicurious, all recipes, and more). Then you input the recipes you want added, have it printed, and voila! My own personal hardcover Tastebook was at my door in three days. Came right in time cuz my fav recipe collection photo album from our bridal shower fell apart that week. . . I guess 10 years of abuse was all it could take.
