Recycled prunes and more

On Sunday, in the spirit of giving, Dylan decided to share his meal with his daddy. Of course this meant that he recycled his prunes ON his daddy. Results are below with prune stained outfit on the floor nearby.
Love is not caring if your little angel barfs prunes on you!

Happily, Dylan has since recovered and is cheering the Horns on to victory with a handsome outfit that Aunt Marlyn sent! Just a few more weeks to wait until the fall football season!

Okay, this last shot is just for grins. Baby bums are cute.

Let the games begin

July 15, 2008 (AP): Grace "officially" started crawling today. This marks the first time we saw her go beyond the famed "rocking horse maneuver" and put one knee in front of the other. She then starting trekking forward and then even a bit sideways. Before we knew it, she was crusing right toward the plant at the edge of the living room, and proceeded to start tugging on the vine that reached the floor. Let the games begin!

Be wary....

Apparently you are a shady character, as Grace and Dylan are looking at you with great suspicion. This has the makings of the cover of a rap album (I reserve the copyrights).

Happy 4th of July!

This 4th of July, we celebrated the event in our neighborhood with an old fashioned bike and stroller parade. This was followed by a community-wide celebration, complete with a color guard, a medal of honor recipient, an adorable 11 year-old singing the national anthem and refreshments for all. It was a lot of fun and the kids were great!

Below is a photo of Grace enjoying the big band music being played over the PA. She was dancing to the beat and grinning the entire time.

Afterwards, we introduced Grace and Dylan to water sports. Specifically, maxing and relaxing at poolside. Clearly, Dylan has this mastered already.

On Saturday, we joined our friends the Machs and Orsis at their place on Crystal Beach, where Dylan and Grace got their first introduction to the ocean (Gulf of Mexico).

It was a terrific weekend for the entire family!
