July pictures!

Here is a link to some new pics taken during July...hope you enjoy them! Oh, and if you missed the first set of Slip'n'Slide pics sent out by Edie earlier this month....please click here.

We're going to attempt to post some video pretty soon, too, as we've recently gotten some "good film" (as Michael would say).

Can't believe August starts tomorrow! A certain someone will be having her baby ANY DAY NOW! Go, Missy and Cas!

sweet things

Just a short story to share tonight. For the first time today Sophia and Sasha played babies together. They sat side by side, each equipped with a baby in one hand and a toy bottle in the other. Sasha kept putting the bottle in the babies' eyes and making a sound like she was eating. Sophia later started yelling at Sasha and me to "SHHHHHHHHHHHH!! THE BABY IS SLEEPING!" It really was cute.

The latest

We are back in Denver after a long trip to South Dakota (the girls and I) and Montana (Michael). We all had a great time seeing our family! Sophia and Sasha both braved the crowds and heat at Mt. Rushmore to see the 3rd of July Fireworks Extravaganza. I was a little skeptical about taking them both up, but it turned out to be a great time...popsicles, hotdogs, great music, a B1 Bomber flyover....can't beat that with a stick.

Michael had a nice trip, too. Apparently his index is ALMOST to single digits. I'm not sure exactly what that means, but I guess it is a good thing. The new golf clubs must be working. I actually squeezed in a round of golf with Edie while we were in SD. It was actually just 9 holes, but to me, 9 holes is a round. Edie plays my kind of golf -- unlimited mulligans, kick your ball out of the rough and any other tough spot, and MAYBE keep score. We had a blast.

Now we're back in Denver, and we've had a fun week at home. We've had a few summer birthday parties and some relaxing nights at home as a family. Sasha is all over the place -- walking, signing and blabbing. She has about 15-20 signs now, and she picks them up so easily! It is fun to watch. Sophia is fully potty trained - even at night. That is big relief and a big milestone we've been eager to reach!

This weekend is the 3rd Annual Moonlight for M&M, so we're heading back to South Dakota to take part in the festivities! Should be a great time, and we hope they make a ton of money to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Not much else to report...I think Michael and I are going to figure out how to get rid of a wasp's nest tonight. SCAAAAAAARYYYYYY!!!!!
