bad blogger, bad, bad!

Have you been disappointed in me the last two weeks? I understand, I've been disappointed in myself too. To make up for it, I'll give you a whirlwind tour of the last few weeks:

1. Hayden photo shoots. I've been trying my best to be an equal opportunity photographer for my children. I don't want any of them to grow up and say "you loved _____ more than me because he/she has more pictures." I'm trying, but gosh darn it, some kids just love the camera a little too much:

2. My birthday. On the 15th I turned 32 years old. I'm not crazy about the fact that every year the number gets higher, but I do like a day where I get presents and eat cake. I guess I'll compromise, just give me an extra slice of cake...We all went out to dinner at Chili's ("I feel God in this Chili's tonight") and then went bowling. It was a great evening, very fun and the kids keep asking to do it again.

3. Guests. Last week we hosted our friends Mark and Stacie Wheeler and their three kids, Cy, Caleb and Abi. We were glad to see our old friends (Mark and Darren were college roommates) and the kids were glad to play together.

4. Staying cool. The temperature is finally rising after a dreary beginning of June. We've been staying cool in our little pool and slip n' slide. Hayden looks cute in her swimsuit but isn't a fan of the cold water.Again, couldn't get a picture of her alone, Miss Cam needs to be in every shot!

Hey Jen, did you notice the big toe on the right foot of both girls? Where did they inherit this little curvature?

Melinda said...

Gee! I'll have to look at the girls' big toes now, Dave!

Anyway, yea! A new entry in yur blog....I've been waiting! Great pics and thanks for the rundown of the last 2 (almost 3!) weeks! Sorry we didn't get to see the Wheelers! You'll have to fill me in on their happenings, too!

That must have been a fluke, because I've been on "toe-watch" all afternoon and haven't seen a repeat of the weird toe phenomenon.

Only 5 candles???? What's up with that? One for each of you?

Silly, don't you know that Cam's and camera go together???
