We went to the park. It's the first time I brought a camera. Good thing! I wouldn't want to miss seeing this stage later. She's SO funny! She loved the bark that the playground is covered in so much that even though she knows how to walk, she crawled everywhere! I'd even put her on her feet and eventually she'd just start to crawl again!
This is Jane and Claire playing Spider.

This is Jane. I think this is the cOOlest photo around!

I love this face!

This is Miles (in swing) and William is on the slide.

check out my spoils...

So, I'm no gardener...Never have been, am trying to be. I planted a few things this spring in this teeny tiny garden plot. I called my FIL-Matt and probably described the dimenions wrong because let me tell you this:

might be slightly overgrown for such a small space!
However, it is growing like a WEED! I have a huge profit from it on a regular basis!

My sister Marlies has a dog named Savannah. As in, Savannah, GA (is that spelled with an h or without?). She lived there for a while a few years ago and adopted her first baby: Savannah the wiener dog. she's a dang cute little animal.

Anyway, Marlies found this purse (among multiple other clothing stuffs) with this little wiener dog as the theme of the clothes and sent them to us. THEY ARE TOO CUTE! They are all big right now, but we'll have to show you the adorable-ness of them later. Meanwhile... Claire has come to carry this little dog purse that we loving call "vanna" (because Marlies calls her dog "Hannah" for short. We don't have Hannah, but we do have a Vanna.) around with her. Claire sucks on that poor dog's nose all the time. I suppose I'll have to let her be a girly-girl if she wants to ...sigh

One of Claire's favorite things to do makes her wait until Daddy comes home. When he gets there, she tries to do everything he does (this probably where 'bad dog' came from). One of the things she mimics is playing the Nintendo Wii. She gets so angry when we take the remotes from her, no matter what distraction we offer her in return. She wants to be doing what Daddy is doing and why would anyone dream of taking that away from her is beyond me.
(secretly I adore that she WANTS to be a daddy's girl)

Claire is the biggest climber! This is a minor version of what she is into lately, but one of them that I could catch on camera without being afraid to let her fall while I grabbed the shot. YIKES! She's in to everything she can reach and even the things she shouldn't be able to reach! ( she loves to climb in the bathtub! AGH! major konk as there is nothing to brace her fall!).
