Little Fishy

My brave little guy!

Lovins from Sissy

Love those fountains!

Sunscreen fun!

We recently took Griffin to the pool for the first time. It was so much fun! Our community pool has an awesome kiddie area with fountains, which Griffin LOVED! After just sort of standing there for a few minutes and shaking, he really began to have fun!
It was such a great feeling to watch this little guy go!

The Big 4-0!!

Proud Daddy

My family!
(We have ants, hence the baby powder on the floor.)

My boys

Rachael did an awesome job decorating the back walk way!

Today is Matt's birthday!
It's been a wonderfully fun and relaxing day.
There was a homemade Reeses Pieces ice cream cake, homemade "ice cream" cupcakes, sidewalk chalk fun, a trip to the pool, shoe shopping, and awesome family time!

Happy Birthday, Matt! We love you!

A Griffin Update

Watching his favorite show, Higglytown Heros, while chilling out on Maboo's chair.

He loves all his new birthday toys!

What a big boy!

Playing with the Mickey plane!

Since his Birthday, Griffin has grown (literally and figuratively) by leaps and bounds! He is babbling all the time now, RUNNING from one end of the house to the other, has become addicted to blueberries, grapes, grape juice, and cheese, is wearing 24 month clothes, and can find things when you ask him where they are (where's the banister? where are the baskets? where is the cat?). He's still the best "work baby". He still sleeps for several hours in the morning and allows me to finish my work day once he's awake. We are so proud of our Toddler!

The Fall of it All

It's Fall in New Town!

Well, not really, but it sort of seems that way. The other day Griffin and I took a walk and much to our (well, my) surprise, piles of leaves were crunching under my feet!
That instantly brought feelings of warm, cuzzie (my mother has always said "cuzzie", not cozie) sweaters, brisk wind licking my cheeks, and hot chocolate waiting for me at home.
But it's July!
It couldn't be from too little rain...The concrete geese on my front porch
(Ma'am Goose and Baby Lucy, courtesy of my Grandmother)
have worn nothing but their rain slickers for months now!
So what's up with the dried up trees?
The picture is of the tree and bushes in the front of our house.
