Cousins visit :)

Here's a shout out to my cousins who came to visit! Ok, they were here to visit their friends (and this was a month ago - time flies), but we were lucky enough to meet them for lunch. Ruth and Jennie, it was so great to see you two, and I love seeing how close you are to each other :) Also, I loved seeing you with my girls! You will both be good mommies someday. (no rush, Ruth, your time will come soon enough :))
Here are some photo I stole from Ruth's facebook! Love!

july round up

Raven LOVES to hold Hazel, and Hazel loves her big sister! Its amazing, though, how quickly the smiles and gentle hugs turn into a death grip and tears.

Lately the girls have loved watching Daddy go to helps with their sad hearts and the tears that come when they know he is leaving. We have 2 Daddy's girls on our hands. They also love to see how he will be going to work. Is he riding his bike? or driving his motorcycle? or more frequently driving his car? Raven yells through the window "Bye! Bye Da Da! Have a day!"

Pool Party with friends! Always a ton of fun!

Sisters playing in the cool. Me: Raven, its a pool p-p-pool. Raven: Its a cool p-p-cool. *sigh* Oh yes, that is Raven drinking the pool. The girl loves to drink water. That can't be bad thing, right? I just try not to think about the gross stuff in that water.

Lovely post swim dinner :)She refused to take off the hat. Oh well. Pick your battles and enjoy these little moments that I will look back on and simply smile. At least she's eating her dinner ;)

...and yes, Hazel is following in Raven's footsteps! She has discovered how to carry a purse while she plays (and loving every minute of feeling like a big girl!).

more to come soon!
