You Scream I Scream

We're wrapping up my Blue Bunny ambassadorship at Sweet T Makes Three and the last shipment arrived just in time for Trudy's birthday. We let her enjoy a treat early which was probably a mistake. Now every day she demands "cone! cone!"

You'd think ice cream would be something to smile about but apparently it's very serious business.

Sand Sifter or Hat?

I guess it's whatever you want it to be

Waiting for Jack

Jared and Jess are expecting baby #1 and are as excited as can be. Jess is crazy-photogenic and I am in constant need of camera practice so we did a little maternity session in the backyard. Using Pinterest for posing ideas, we had a blast. Thanks for being patient with me as I learn, ya'll and congratulations!

Jared is camera-shy, but he was still a good sport.
















Sunday, Dave got a shot of both of us. Since our kids will be only 2 month apart, we thought this would be fun for them to look back on someday. Even though they won't get to see each other much, I hope they become friends and playmates like Jared and I were growing up.

Trudy's First Pedicure

Everyone who knows Trudy knows that she loves having her toes painted. Since she loves the process so much, Jess and I decided to take her with us for our traditional girlfriend's pedicure experience. You know how it is at a walk-in place. You usually have to wait quite a bit. There were a couple of people ahead of us and after they plus all three of us had our toes done, we wound up being in there for an hour and a half. I couldn't believe she sat patiently the whole time!
I let her pick her own color and she choose purple of course. Dropping it in the foot bath provided a little entertainment.
We had just painted her nails that morning with polish that Jess brought her as a gift (they are BFFs now by the way) but when she saw this magical place of toe painting she was ready for more color and "topcoat." Yes, she says the word topcoat and knows exactly what it is.

Purple paint with pretty flowers
Everyone in the salon was enamored with her and how patient she was. Her services were comped for good behavior!
She enjoyed watching everyone else get pedis and enjoyed showing off her toe paint to Daddy and Jared when we got home. Now we have a fun mother/daughter activity for special occasions. Maybe some birthday pedis are in order next month.

Backyard Fun

With temps in the triple digits and no rain for a month, we only get about an hour of time outdoors each day. From 7-8PM we try to have a little fun before bedtime when the temperature has cooled to the 90s. *sigh*

Yummy "purple bites"

A little froggy friend was trying to beat the heat in one of our bushes. It's not easy being green when it's 105 outside!

30 Weeks

30 weeks down and 8-12 to go. Trudy came at 39 weeks so maybe this baby will be an early bird too. Isn't Dave getting good with our camera?
