Here’s what we’ve been up to the past few weeks:
At the park for one of our summer festivals, I’m working on the white legs so shield your eyes.
We hung out with my sister who got to get in some quality Bella time. The sunglasses were funny because Bella gets so still when they are put on her. It’s like she’s on a different planet. A dim one. Also, it was fun just to relax, have a beer, and eat some amazing food.
Bella is learning how to use a sippy cup and where her thumb is. She can also sit like a champ now.
Hippie land at it’s finest. But it was a blast. They had tye dye onesies and I so wish I had bought Bella one. There is a huge rafter/kayak contest that goes on during these 4 days. The danger sign is because the sign tells where I live. I love you all, but, you know. Crazies. :/
We took Bella to the zoo with her cousins. The ostrich came right up to the fence and she was in heaven. This picture is one of my very favorites.
I met up with a dear childhood friend I haven’t seen in 5 years, and her adorable daughter who is 14 months. We had lunch and I realized how much I miss her, and how alike we still are in many ways. Even though she is probably the smartest person I have ever met. They might be moving near us in the future – fingers crossed!
It’s so funny how I always hesitate on putting pictures of myself on here because I always think, “I will when I lose more weight or when I get to make myself look better than being all hot and sweaty.” But I never care on your blogs – I always love to see pics of you guys and maybe it’s the same way? I don’t give a second thought to what you’re wearing or how thin you are. I love seeing your babies – but let’s face it – I see them most of the time. Your pics are what’s interesting to me, because I’m reading about you.
One thing I would love to get advice/feedback on is your method on packing.
– Do you do it all in a few days?
– Over a period of time?
– Does everything go into whatever box it fits in or do you pack room by room?
– What about packing for Bella? We can’t even go on an overnight trip without packing a ton – what should I box up and what should I leave out?
You’d think after moving as much as I have I’d have it down to a science but I’m always looking for a more efficient way.
