Camping Out

The kids came over to spend the night camping in our backyard. We set up the tent and loaded it with sleeping bags, pillows and blankets. Bekah had fun crawling all over the tent and exploring.

The kids had fun running around and wrestling with their Uncle Chris. Jeremy loves doing this and having fun hanging out with us. He has so much energy and spunk.

We got our fire pit going and all of us roasted hotdogs over the fire. They tasted really good. All except for Jessie's. She decided that instead of ketchup or mustard she wanted peanut butter on it. I tried to talk her out of it but she really thought it would taste good. I only put a little bit on. Good thing because she really didn't like it. Go figure!!

Jessie enjoyed the smore's much more than her peanut butter hotdog. Everyone one had smores made with Reese's Peanut butter cups. Yum!

We played guesstures. Jessie can't read so Chris would whisper the word to her and she would try to act it out. She didn't really understand all of the rules but that made it much more fun to play with her. She was trying to get us to say the word egg. She kept making an egg shape with her hand, then pushing her hands apart and whispering "hatch, hatch". It was soooo funny.

Goat Rock Beach

I had a lot of fun taking my nieces Brittany (14) and Jessie (5) and my nephew (9) along with Bekah out to the beach. It was foggy and kind of cool out but the kids didn't care. They had so much fun running up and down the beach, collecting rocks and climbing up on the boulders. Bekah had fun with me carrying her. I really enjoy just spending time with the kids and doing fun stuff with them.

Such a Goofy Girl

Daddy helped Bekah with drinking out of a cup.

We got Bekah a new swing. She just loves swinging by herself. Bekah giggles and giggles when we push her.

A Little Icecream, A Little Catan

The other night Chris and I got together with my aunt and uncle and cousins for dinner and a game. We decided to play greater Catan. We put two Catan games together and had a great game that lasted 5 hours. I didn't like this particular game as much as the regular ones we play, but it was fun to spend time with family. My Aunt Jennifer won with Uncle Scott and Catie right behind.

My mom came to Santa Rosa and spent some time with us. We had a fun time at Cold Stone enjoying some really good icecream. Bekah thought it was a great idea as she got bites of all our icecream and really enjoyed it.

The Sonoma County Fair 2007

My mom and Chris, Bekah and I went to the fair on opening day. I really enjoyed this fair more than the others I have been to. We had a fun time getting pictures of all the Snoopy's we saw. The flower show was amazing and lots of fun. Enjoy the pictures!!
