July 2014

Okay I am going to catch up at some point I hope...Here's an attempt!
July 2014 was our first month in our new house. You would think that means I spent the month unpacking and moving in. Well, I did some of the time. But I'm not fast at that process and its hard so I prefer distractions. Fixitman was also working a ton all month. So here are pictures of some of the things we did.

Our new back yard is nice. It has grass and a large Live Oak the kids like to climb. Here are the kids playing in their boat. A few weeks after moving in, we learned it was good to have a boat here - we are in a flood zone! 


 Baby boy is starting to be interested in other foods besides mama milk. Love these first feeding type pictures.

 These three being cute on the bed.
 He started pulling to standing! What is happening?
 Eating Watermelon on Independence day. Such a handsome little guy. He does have pale blond hair, I promise!
 Jumping on a trampoline at a friends' house. Look at that tongue!
 Watching the fireworks that night.
 Doctors appointment random photos

 Daily walks in the neighborhood meant seeing the road crews repair and replace roads! The kids found this quite fascinating to watch.
The ditch behind our house was dredged out. If I'd known they were going to do it, there was a little baby palm tree I would have salvaged first!

 Princess received a half-birthday party this year. A great way to enjoy the new splash park almost across the street from out new home!


 Her cupcakes with blue frosting! She picked them, helped make them and decorate on them.






 She received a bunch of fancy dresses for her dolls as a present. We ended up playing for hours together. Here is her collection all dressed up. You can see the guys have lower standards for the fancy dances. These are the same dolls I used to play with at my grandmas house when I was a little girl, and their wardrobes were definitely falling apart. Grandma gave them to Princess when she was 2, but now she's started enjoying them.
Being in a flood zone and with a ditch behind the house,  I guess I shouldn't have been surprised at all the frogs I run into outside at night!

 
 Summer and picking tomatoes in a friends' garden. Yum!
There was a regional swim meet. Pictures of swim meets are difficult. Here's a picture of a sweet sleeping baby instead.
 Okay one picture of the swim meet. What? You can't see one of my boys immediately?
 Look at this guy stand!
He still loves crawling though and has started coming to get the camera.
 This boy went to a math camp. (At his request!) He had a blast and made a short computer video.
Summer is hot. Of course we went swimming!



 I let the kids pick my new sunglasses. Purple!
 We went to the Houston museum again. It's another fun way to keep cool in summer.

 All the kids with their friend Sloth-zilla.
 How can I say no to this face?


Lastly, a picture of my haircut. It's a rare enough thing that I had a picture taken. :)
