Evo Love

 Over the weekend Jaime and I got new phones...we seriously upgraded from what we had.  We now each have an Evo.  Wow! These are amazing phones.  We are in awe with the technology nowadays. We spent too much time this weekend playing with them and getting them all figured out, downloading apps and whatnot.  This morning I'm in the process of making a little clutch to carry mine in.  I'll post pics once it's done...I keep getting interrupted by little ones :)

4th of July Weekend

What a fun weekend we had here! Our order of Simply Fun games came in just before the weekend started.  We haven't stopped playing them.  These games are so much fun and dare I say not near as mind numbing as Candyland and other games of the sort.  I highly recommend you check them out~there are toddler through adult games. 
Jaime did lots of grilling~ribs, fillet mignon,corn, pineapple, and sweet potatoes. And so, we all did lots of eating. :)  With all of the eating of course some outside time was in order.  Along with running around the backyard, we went to the Arboretum for a walk (shortened due to the little rain shower that passed through).
We finally got more rain about the time the fireworks show was to start.  We went and parked, but weren't sure if they were going to cancel.  I'm so glad we went and decided to stay because it was a wonderful show and leaving was the easiest it's ever been! Hardly any traffic.  Penelope was incredibly excited. She kept jumping and trying to reach out to touch them, and oh the squealing!

Pretties for P

 My aunt has made Penelope some cute dresses.  Last week we got a surprise in the mail from her.  She made Penelope a tutu, headband, and a dress with bloomers.  It all coordinates with shades of blue and purple.  When I opened the box she insisted on wearing the headband and tutu immediately :)
 She's such a sassy, girly girl, but is so tough and loud.  We just love our Rosie!

World Cup

We've been watching the world cup this summer.  John Paul has taken to kicking a soccer ball around the house, around the yard, at Alexander's baseball games, and would take the ball with him everywhere he goes if I let him.  I'm enjoying watching him improve his skills, use up his constant supply of energy, and get so excited for the upcoming soccer season.  He's never played on a team before and outside of the World Cup hasn't really watched or seen soccer.  He tells us he's going to score in every game.  I'm excited to watch him play :)
