The Past Couple Of Weeks

Been picking lots of produce.

Been losing teeth.

Out for breakfast with Michelle & Don. This is becoming an annual tradition for us!

The pink ladies. When you are 5 it's really easy to make friends. All it took for these four was to realize they were all dressed in pink. They ran around all morning holding hands and making sure everyone noticed they were wearing pink.

Our lovely AND delicious tomatoes. Fresh sliced tomatoes sprinkled with sea salt is a staple this time of year.

On her birthday she enjoyed supper & cupcakes with Auntie Julie & Auntie Jenny.

This is not a very clear photo of Auntie Jenny, but it's all I got. How lame am I? We only see her about once a year! Anyway, she was instrumental in helping to get everything together for Kaia's birthday party. The day ended up crazy with a few unforeseen complications. One was the fact that Craig's truck broke down on Friday night. Another was that for the first time this season Micah had a soccer game that ended at 1pm, which also happened to be the start time of the party. A third (good) complication is that we finally sold our gas fireplace that very morning. Just in time to pay for the truck repair bill. How come we're always left treading water & not moving ahead? I guess it's better than drowning.

A beautiful day for the party. Aren't the colors so pretty? Melanie & Traleigh even happened to match the decor!

Getting cranky. Quick, lets open presents.

Our new one year old!
