Hello, Friends!

I just realized that I haven't blogged in awhile. I'm gonna have to backtrack a bit to get caught up. So this is going to be one looong post with tons of fun pics to look at. Yay! Here we gooooooo......

K - first a few randoms that don't really go along with anything else we've been doing:
Amber and Jade thought it would be fun to wash my car. At noon. In the hot Arizona summer. All I can say about it is they sure were fast about it....lol

Really, is there anything better??

My new baby. Our old washer was somewhere between 15-20yrs old and finally called it quits mid-load. Luckily, we had enough put away in savings to go buy a new one from Sears.

David introduced Paisley to nectarines. I think they're gross. This is because I grew up with a couple peach trees in my backyard and sorry.....but there's no comparison between fresh-from-the-tree peaches and hard-as-a-rock things they call peaches and nectarines at the store. Paisley however, doesn't know the difference and loved it.

My sweetie girls dressed up for church. I curled Pie's pigtails! And yes, she brought her bright purple platypus with her. Spoiled little thing.

Next up: one really fun evening of swimming. This actually happens more often than not. Mainly cause it's seriously too hot to swim in the afternoon and I burn regardless of the spf number in the sunscreen. Pink skin sucks. Period. Anyways, I pulled out David's and my old snorkel gear from Hawaii and we had fun teaching
Amber and Jade how to use it. Jade's pretty good with the snorkel. Amber...not so much. She panics and forgets she can breathe through her mouth. lol



Last, but not least, David's sister Tera and her family came to visit us from Ohio! They're mid-move from there to North Dakota, had some time to kill, and lots of family here in the valley. Jade has had a blast with her cousin Hope who's just 1 month younger. Poor Amber doesn't have a single cousin on either side anywhere near her age, but she still had fun playing Mario on our Wii with Courage and Justice. Zach and Tai brought their kids over to play and even Papa came up from Tucson! The kids all had sooo much fun swimming with Papa and all the cousins!

One....Two....Three....GOOOO!!!

Papa throwing Courage. Notice all the other kids have cleared out of the pool....

While Tera and Dave are in Arizona, we are babysitting their dog, Charlie. As you can see, Paisley LOVES him. And her cereal of choice? Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds.

Princess Power!

These kids have some mean Wii skills....

You may or may not have noticed my absence here on our blog. This is mainly due to me being stuck in that awkward "bloated" stage of pregnancy....where all your normal clothes are too tight but maternity clothes just hang. I will make an appearance once again as soon as I actually look pregnant. =)
