Benjamin drew a witch (who surprisingly looks like Popeye).
Notice how carefully she wrapped her baby in the blanket. She keeps telling me all the things she is going to do for her baby brother. I think she is excited...she keeps asking me, "Is my baby coming yet?!" She also told me yesterday afternoon that I could go play while she made lunch. It was fabulous!
In other news, I have been feverishly trying to get done with a couple of baby projects that I have been working on before Fuzz Ball decides to make his appearance. Asa and Paula brought me home some adorable burp cloths from their trip to Idaho--yes, I was homesick when they told me they were going--and I realized I had only two burp cloths (the two they brought). I have two kids already and have no burp cloths to show for it...how sad is that?! So I have been making burp cloths with an adorable flannel fabric I found at JoAnn's and birdseye cloth diapers. Fun times here! (And yes, we still do not have a name picked out, as you can tell by the references to Fuzz Ball.) Here is hoping the next post I make is about an adorable little man.
I didn't get pictures of Benjamin making his jell-o, but they loved eating it, and I think we will be making a lot more jell-o from now on.
Benjamin and dinosaur decided they wanted to go help Lydia finish fixing her bike, since Benjamin's was done.
This summer has been wonderful! Bring on fall!
There really is nothing like the New Mexico sunsets, and I get to see every one out my front window!
Benjamin is in love with all things that move. So he chose a little car ride. He was so excited because he got to pick his car first, but got so impatient by the end that he hopped out of the car just before the ride was ready to start. Brian put him back in, and they got rolling.
Lydia was really good at golfing.Brian took this adorable picture of Benjamin and Lydia just after they got back from golfing.
We went on a hike the next day, and I cannot tell you the name of the waterfalls, because I do not remember. They were beautiful, though.
I love this picture of Brian and Benjamin! They were washing their feet off in the frigid water.
On the way home, we stopped at another hike to see another waterfall. What is it about nature that is so awe-inspiring? I absolutely love gorgeous things, and this waterfall was no exception. No vacation would be complete without the sighting of a bear. Well, okay, this was actually my first sighting of a bear, but it was amazing. We were driving down Wolf Creek Pass and saw a bunch of cars pulled off the road. Before I knew what was happening, Brian swerved off too, and informed me that everyone was gawking at a bear. Well, of course we have to have proof of what we actually saw, so here you go!
