I'm not sure what to do. Blogger still won't let me post pictures, and without the pictures I don't really have much for ya! I feel bad too because I've hardly posted at all this month, it has been insanely busy, and we've also had a lot of fun too!
Yesterday was David's birthday (Michael Jackson also died yesterday, David I blame you.) so we celebrated by seeing the new Transformer's movie--fantastic!! Goodness, I love those movies! Then I went to a staff meeting at work, and after that we went to dinner at Tucanos and ate and ate and ate a lot of meat. David was just proud of himself that he didn't get sick.
The kids have been driving me nuts, it doesn't help that the weather teases us by being gorgeously warm outside one day and raining the next. It still hasn't felt like real summer's started, hopefully soon. Bethany and Maddie are at eachother's necks all the time too. No I mean that literally, they hurt eachother constantly! Sisters...
Sam is always curious, getting into stuff, playing in the trash, pulling out all the food he can find in the pantry, its great fun... He also has about five teeth about ready to come through, every day I expect to see them, and they have yet to show themselves! Anytime teeth, anytime.
And the next big thing coming up for me, is Girls' Camp! I'm really excited to be up there and have a really great experience with the girls! So fun!
Besides maybe painting some murals at the daycare, and Bethany whining like you couldn't believe, I think thats all I got! Oh, and some pictures...!

Oh for goodness sake! I've been trying to post since last week, but stupid blogger won't let me add pictures! At all! I tried to post for Father's Day, I've tried to post about our trip to the zoo, I promise you guys I've been trying to post!

So this is just a quick little note to tell you I'm still here, and I'm still blogging, just have to figure out why blogger won't let me post pictures! Are any of you having that problem?

Hmmmm, maybe I have a funny story or something to share instead...ummm, nope, no funny stories...

Let's see, I think I'm pretty much going crazy. David was gone this last weekend taking the test for the Tacoma Police Department, so far as we know he passed, we'll find out in the next week or two! Whooo! But while he was gone, my schedule didn't ease up very much, Thursday was pretty much insane, Friday was good, but Saturday I did NOTHING and still didn't feel very recovered. But I am so glad the sun is starting to shine, and we can spend some more time outside doing fun stuff! Because honestly, my kids are driving me nutso! :)

So hopefully I can add some pictures soon, be looking forward to those!

I haven't been too good about keeping up with pictures and what we've been doing since summer started. :( Sorry about that, but I will say its because summer has kicked off with a busy start and thats part of the reason I'm behind (the other part is that I'm just lazy).

This first picture of Maddie is from the Young Women's fundraising breakfast, I thought it was too cute not to share!

This next one of Sam is from his run in with the concrete steps at the daycare. Hey, atleast it wasn't on my watch right! It actually looked worse in person, I don't think this looks very bad, but man his face was messed up for awhile! haha

These last three pictures are from our hike up to Battlecreek falls, you may remember us trying to do this hike last year and failing, but we did it this year without Dave and made it, although I thought I was going to die (but not from any animal, just from the hike itself). :)

Carla carrying Sam (although I did almost make it the whole way carrying him myself.)

Britin and Maddie, awww buddies!

So, those are some of the things we've been up to for the summer, I'm sure once these thunderstorms start to wear off and we get some nicer weather there will be lots more trips to the pool and the zoo and wherever else we want to go! Yay for crazy busy summers! :)

Cousin Love

My sister and her family stopped here on their way up to Washington and back, and we loved having them! Bethany and Isabel just love eachother so much and have so much fun together! My sister made these sweet dresses for my girls and Isabel which they loved, but we wanted to take pictures of Isabel in her dress while Kristie made my girls'. I have more of just Isabel but I LOVED these pictures of my girls with their cousin! Aren't cousins the best?!

Fun Pics

So I finally finished Maddie's skirt (hopefully you can see it in the pictures) and stayed up until after 3am to finish Bethany's, but alas, my sewing machine was not cooperating. So I wasted all that non-sleep for nothing. Boo hoo. Thank goodness my sister made Bethany a super cute dress last week or I'd have been so depressed. Shanna and I (and her cousin Megan) went out to the salt flats this morning. I've been wanting to go for a long time, but they're sort of far (about 1 1/2 hours) and I didn't really want to go by myself. So Shanna came up with the awesome idea of going all together and having a super fun photo shoot (say that five times fast!). The only hitch in the plan is that it's been raining in the evenings, we thought the flats would stay dry, but they weren't. So we couldn't drive out far onto the flats like we wanted to, but we still made things work so that was good.

I wanted a really specific look for these shots, just really vivid bright colors. Here's what I got:

Here's just a couple extra with their friends:

Fun, fun, fun! Hopefully we'll go back in the next month or so when its all dried out and white and sparkly, I'm so excited!
