Or close to it anyways. I figured that while both kids are sleeping and I'm procrastinating folding laundry, I'd just update everyone (as in all 3 regular readers) on our latest happenings.
Around our house we teach to like potato chips young.
About a month ago we went to Wisconsin with my family for a few days. It was a relaxing time, although had Carter not gone through a "I think I'll be awake for 3 hours in the middle of the night" phase it would have been a lot nicer. The kids got lots of grandparent time, which they loved. It was especially nice cause they got to spend a lot of time with my dad, which doesn't happen much.
Bridget reading Father's Day cards with grandpa
Making biscuits with grandma
Hanging out on the island at breakfast and trying to reach everyone else's stuff
Watching movies...of course we couldn't go even a few days without those!
The fish fryers
My cousins Amber and Holly went with us, and Bridget thought it was pretty great when she got to hang out with the "big girls."
Playing with Grandpa
Family pic before we left. We left Wed morning and the rest of the family stayed until Saturday.
All of us. Thankfully we had a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom cabin!
Back at home, little buddy got closer and closer to crawling
We had a short stint with potty training. After 2 days I decided that she wasn't ready and didn't get the concept. Either that or I just wasn't ready to train her. Maybe we'll try again in a few weeks....or maybe not. :)
Daniel and Wendi
Celebrating my dad's birthday. Once again Bridget is acting in her unofficial role as family gift opener.
Went to get Carter out of bed from his nap one morning and found him sitting up! He was pretty proud of himself.
Bridget's forehead without a bandaid over it. Not a good picture, but she wouldn't hold still for me.
We had some SERIOUSLY hot days.
July 4th was one of those hot days, but we went to Eureka's fireworks anyway. And it was hot.
Bridget loved the fireworks at first. In between she'd say "more! more!" She eventually got a little bored of them and had a grand time running around with Adalai.
Carter and I watching the fireworks.
And that's pretty much our updated life. Oh, Carter is officially crawling all over as of Friday morning. And Bridget shrieks whenever he goes towards her and yells "he get me! he get me!" Between that and her screaming when he gets her things (which is pretty much every toy except for a few designated things) it's almost enough to drive one bonkers.
