Life is good. Ben got laid off, did some grunt work, we, as a family, learned some things, and then he got hired back on by Valmont. Hallelujahs. And he doesn't loose his seniority and we won't miss a beat of insurance coverage. booyah. So, it's been a stressful summer, but things are back on track.
As I mentioned, I do have a backlog of photos to share, but I'm going to start with the most recent. We had a family pool party at Resa and Steve's this week. And a surprise birthday celebration for me. It was so nice and relaxing. Marls has turned into a fish in the water, and the more time Doodle spends in it, the less scared she is. Anywho. School starts in less than a month, so we are trying to squeeze every drop of fun out of summer we can. I am so not ready for Marls to be gone ALL DAY LONG or for Doodle to start school at all. But that is a weepy post for another day.
|so i was at a photoshoot the other day, when we stumbled upon this guy. from what we can gather from the picture, he is a rattlesnake. yikes!|
|i love love love this picture. i might just have to blow it up.|
|and this one. i mean, come on. isn't she just the best?!|
|i think doodle was explaining the finer points of scooby do to erin.|
|she is like a fish. she swam all over that pool.|
|check out the fierceness.|
|he may not be big on the pool yet, but he is big on the cute.|
