Still enjoying the outdoors.

Even though school has begun and our evenings are much shorter now, the girls still thoroughly enjoy playing outside. Mom loves bath time because the girls are playing so hard they leave dirt rings in the tub!





Birthday Fun

Last Tuesday we got to help Aunt Heidi celebrate her birthday. Lauren and Emma love the candles and the frosting. It was a great warm-up for Emma!

Random pictures

Lauren turned her kitchen set into a house for her Polly Pockets. (Quite a mansion for them!)
Emma has really taken to writing. Lately, she's been using her right hand more than her left. I love how focused she is in this picture.

Emma staying busy while Mommy was making supper.

Lauren reading to Dora after tucking her in.



Here's the best we've been able to do so far capturing Emma as a walker. She's been very tricky in her attempt to not be photographed!

A Beautiful weekend for camping!

We finally experienced perfect weather for camping! Over one of the last weekends in July we went to Lake Vermillion with Brandon, Kim, Joey, Taylor, and Kara. We had a great time!Joey, Emma, Taylor, Kara, and Lauren posing in front of Lake Vermillion before attempting some fishing.
Lauren checking out the rocks on the shore line.

The girls enjoying the playground that was just kitty-corner from our camp site.

(climb the board and stick a foot, knee, or leg in the hole).
