Six Months

Today I am celebrating the fact that I have been given 6 wonderful months with this sweet little girl...

thank you for the cute outfit, Grandma!

The Dust Settles

I know, it's been waaay too long since I've posted pictures. We've been busy lately, and I've found that facebook is a better platform for posting pictures. However, I know many of you who have only this blog to see the doings of our little family--so here are the pictures.

Vance and Claire with Dr. Saari, who just graduated from dental school in late May. Hooray for free dental care!

Isaac enjoying the hot tub at Nick's party

our Memorial Day picnic at the nation's first public wildflower garden
Nana and Papa came to visit in early June, and Isaac got his fill of attention and willing readers. I think he got Nana to read to him for an hour and a half straight one evening.

Claire's first food....bananas!

Dad and Vance went fishing with Aaron and Craig...looks like a smallmouth to me.


We went home this past week for Dad's wedding and the myriad of other activities surrounding the big event. Isaac was trying to get buff like "Big Papa Strong!"

Still trying to grasp the idea of a roll-out

cousins :)

Our visit was too short, but at least we got to see everyone. Ellen was glad to see Claire, as you can see.


Isaac was enthralled with Seth's singing tractor

Julie held my tired one and got her to fall asleep on her shoulder! Mothering license conferred :)

my son, William Wallace, with his warpaint on
Unfortunately, the diaper bag swallowed my camera after this point, and I have no pictures of the wedding or our anniversary trip. But hopefully AJ will post pictures soon, and no one wanted to see my sun-poisoning anyway, so you'll just have to imagine how great that felt.
More weekend pictures to come!
