Bowling for Buzzards

As previously stated, I have been lacking in consistent blogging practices this month. To avoid further overburdening, here are all the cute, entertaining, or otherwise pictures that I want to blog before they are too far gone.

All told, we've had a good summer. Us girls enjoyed a picnic in the back of the car.

We went shopping together many, many times.

Jane and I occasionally try out new adventures while Megan is sleeping. Our most recent attempt is scissors.

Paper only. So far, so good. Jane also likes to build towers out of anything that will stack. Here she found Chris's Rubik's cube collection conveniently within reach.

We also eat a lot. What's summer without treats?

I told you Megan really, really likes watermelon.

I couldn't decide which picture I liked best, so you get all three.

We had a fun playdate with Lisa and her friend Rebecca and all the kids. Megan had her first solo attempt at an apple.

What do you think of the sunscreen hairstyle?

Chris and I still don't have a lot of time with just the two of us. We took advantage of one such moment and hiked up Ensign Peak together. It was windy.

For some reason, Chris's hair didn't get nearly as messed up as mine...

But the view was worth it.

We could even see Chris's work from there.

We enjoyed being together.

Yay for dates!

For Family Home Evening last week we went to Murray City's Police and Fire Safety Fair.

Jane got to sit inside the Ladder Truck,

and got a fire truck tattoo,

we watched a helicopter land,

Megan chilled in the stroller,

and Chris took a work call.

The true highlight of the evening, however, was the swings.

This was Megan's first serious time spent in a swing. She was quite uncertain in the beginning (I love this face!).

She warmed up to it fairly quickly.

Then she loved it.

Ah, pictures of babies in swings comes second only to my enjoyment of pictures of babies sleeping.

Chris took a turn swinging on Sunday. He sported a little more style.

And a little more daring.

Grandma Karrie had a turn, too.

Jane has taken to reading the newspaper while she eats breakfast.

And Megan is tentatively starting to walk. She has taken a few unassisted steps, emphasis on few, but she is more and more confident about walking with help.

Posts to look forward to:
Camping at Silver Lake
Petty 55th Anniversary
Megan's second? ever trip to Aberdeen

Be excited.

I love all the photos especially the ones of Megan eating watermelon! So cute, sounds like you're keeping busy.

I'm excited to see you guys. It looks like you've had all sorts of fun. I love seeing Jane do grown up things!
