well ketchup really has nothing to do with it... though we do like the french fries around here...
so, i was looking through some pictures from the last month and realized how remiss i have been in my posting. so, here's a quick review of our photoed summer activities thus far:
we spend a lot of time on our front porch and lawn- it's just more accessible than the back yard and the kids love riding their "bikes" back and forth on the sidewalk.
of course, the back yard does look a bit unruly this year... this picture was right before john spent a couple of days mowing it down. it's better now.
when it's sunny... which has been rare, we love to hit the parks and beaches in the area. here's jetty at lake meridian. we're actually headed there again today after jett wakes up from his nap.
and on the other 5 to 6 days of the week, when it's not sunny, we find other ways to entertain ourselves. apryl and ella were here about a month ago and we headed down to point defiance zoo and aquarium for the day. lucy and ella had a great time making faces at the animals and the camera... sorry, apryl, i think lucy may have taught ella the habit...
here's lucy making me lunch. yummy, pickles and watermelon! so, when is it that little girls learn that tilting their heads to the side for photos is cute... is it innate? all of a sudden she's picked it up. i'll take it over the "silly" face she's been using constantly lately.
and, here's a lunch i made for her. i think she might have some high expectations with sandwhich possibilities. lately i have been asking her what kind of sandwich she wants and then it's my challenge to create it... butterflies, robots, and hearts are one thing, but the monkey she asked for the other day was a bit sketchy.
