Ellie's usual summer wake up time: 6 something.
Ellie's wake up time time this morning: 8:15am.
The only the thing different...

Danny set up her bed last night.

Dads are so fun.

Weekend Get Away

Sometimes you just need to get out and enjoy the great outdoors...

IF there's water involved

AND you have someone fun to go with.

AND you have someone to watch your little one. Thanks Steph:)

If you're interested,
Salamaze Jug near Roosevelt Lake is the place.

Do I Dare?

What do you do when you have some free time and start picking up free wireless again?

I guess you start bloggin'.

Yes I've got some catching up to do,
so here's us in a nutshell :

Ellie's first Christmas

Who says 5 months is to young to enjoy opening presents?

We're on to solids now

These look like green beans in a jar, which she no longer enjoys.
Her favorites now include:
-steamed veggies (carrots, squash, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, etc)
-whole beans (black, pinto, kidney)
-pretty much anything she can eat on her own

Welcome to the Zoo

The giraffe was one of my favorites.
Ellie just thought it was a large, spotted tree.
We'll have to go again later.

Spring Break in Rocky Point

Ellie wasn't a fan of cold, salty ocean water,
but man could she shake a maraca.
This is a family tradition I hope will last through generations of grandkids.

We are now Snowboarders

Why? Because we love it.
AND Danny found a board, boots, bindings and goggles for me at a garage sale.
Total price $40.

Thanks Hubba.

Hello tooth #3

We've got 3 on the bottom and a few trying to make their way through on the top.
This makes for an emotional Ellie.

Oh, and we don't sit still much these days.

Which makes for fun surprises when you turn your back for just a second.

Well, it feels good to be back.
