It used to be that I could look over quite often and the 2 of you would be in the chair, watching the same show. It's been awhile, for you don't always watch the same things anymore and are not usually in the same chair anymore. But today I looked over and there you both were. So I snapped it. Today, as it would be, you are both in the same chair most of the morning, playing the PS2 together.
Miss Lynnette brought the shoe tying board for you to work on again. You did all 3 of them twice and then you got out the PlayDoh. Here Miss Lynnette had made a fish on the hook for you and you "caught" it! Such fun!
Ryan came out to paly with the PlayDoh too!
We went to Scottsdale McCormick Railroad Park to met up with friends this 4th of July. The temp wasn't too bad as we were sitting in the shade & the sun went down. We listened to the band, danced and played. Turned our chairs around 180 degrees and then watched the fireworks! Is this the perfect photo? No. But it , to me, captured the day the best - the 4th shirts on my favorite boys, the light bracelet on Ryan's arm, the way they are all looking at the fireworks - I just love it. It was an awesome 4th!
I had Ryan take some photos of me running on this morning. They didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, but that's ok! Matthew asked me to take his photo and I couldn't refuse. I love this one. His one eyed squint, sitting in his Gator, the peanut butter from his cracker on his lips, the freckles from summer, the healed scar on his forehead, the gap beginning on his front top teeth (they're finally loose!!!) - it's all just so him and so this summer. We stayed outside for a bit on this morning and they played. It was right at 7am and that's just about the only time to be outside and not in the pool.
Some of the plants in the pots in front of my home.

This month's Songbird Avenue Kit!!!
Journaling reads: You are totally loving the pool this summer! Every time I turn around you are asking to go swimming. You are learning to cannonball this summer and have gone at least 3/4’s of the long side of the pool swimming underwater without your vest. I am enjoying watching you expand your wings more and more!

Went up to Diane's yesterday and stopped at my favorite little park for a few minutes of shooting - just for fun, just for me. Then shot a little more at her house (the bougainvillea shots (to get the 64 color shot) & the one peachy cactus) when we were done working.
