June 2010

We have had a wonderful month...busy and swift.  Traveling, weddings, family and friends!
Ruby is growing, and so cute!  I am having way too much fun with her hair.  I will post pictures soon!  She sits up on her own and smiles all the time.  She started eating rice cereal last week...yummy (I seriously like baby cereal its so good).  I have a hard time keeping my lips off her chubby little cheeks.

We have been out west since early June...Elias has had a blast every day. Hiking, playing in the creek with friends, boating on the Snake river, birthday parties, bug camp, swimming pools, and playing in the tree house, zipline in the mountains...seriously everyday has been a party.  He is going to have a hard time coming back to reality.  The library and parks lunch program has kept us a little grounded.  We have reached the 1/2 way mark for our reading goal for the summer.  500 books!  We read every morning and every evening...and sometimes mid day too.

Eric is in Korea and I am excited to join him.  We miss papa...Life just isn't as much fun with out him.

The little man and I went on a four day canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). We started off with a 1/2 mile portage then a 5 mile paddle to our campsite. He loved every minute of it. We went with some friends, fished, swam, and had a blast. The little man has a few new words, "lake" is now "water mountain" and "fishermen" are called "people sharks". If you listened really hard as we approached in our canoes, poles in hand, you could hear the fish screaming "ahhh hear come the people sharks"

I love this cat.  So much.   He is our family therapist, our entertainment, and my mid-life motherhood fulfillment.  And he is naughty... ...
