summer catch up, or ketchup

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.

Looks like summer has been fun. Sydney always wants to be out front riding her "bike" also.

I'll be sure not to show your sandwich picture to my kids or else I'm doomed to try it too...the problem? I'm not artistic like you! Everyone looks great!

Great pics, Does that mean Jett has to settle for the plain ice cream instead of a cone shaped sandwich? -Samantha

It's so fun to check up on you and see whats going on with your cute family!! We have neighborhood garage sales up here, and no matter how much I sell, I always bring home more stuff. Spence says 'NO MORE!!' ;)

Hey Kelly, I found your blog through Lynne's. I have not seen you in forever. You have a way cute family. Your kids are so dang cute. Sounds like your doing well. One of my cousins contacted me a few years ago and said they knew you and your husband. I guess you all were in the same ward or something, Russell and Noell Golding?
Anyways, I hope your doing good and your family sure is cute!!!!

Hey Kelly! I agree with Lynne -- what have you been up to lately??! I count on your blog to keep me informed (because picking up the phone would be too easy!)

Time for the Fall ketchup. How's it hangin' Humphrey?

Oh, my gosh, I love the LUCY crispy treats. Uh, and I can see you are a bit like me with the blogging. A little behind... Fun to see the great pics of your darling kids.

Wow, Jett and Lucy look so much younger than when I saw them last.
