This and That...

And now a bit of randomess....

Becka's wedding

In June we made a trip out to Idaho and Utah to visit family. My friend Becka was getting married that weekend so I had the opportunity to see it happen. They look adorable in this picture, but it really doesn't do them justice. Loved her dress. Loved her flowers. Loved everything.


Sophie went to a birthday party a couple of weeks ago and came home with a zebra manicure.

(See? Told you this was gong to be random.)


Sophie's favorite place to play. For very short intervals. And with lots of supervision.


One day the girls spotted a spider crawling on the wall (an daily occurrence lately. Ugh.) I was in the middle of making dinner so I told them to hang on a few minutes before I could get it.

So they pulled up some chairs and watched it.


I had to throw in an obligatory cheesy 4-year-old smile.

4th of July Weekend


I wandered over here to my slightly-neglected blog and noticed that I hadn't finished this post from our 4th of July weekend.

Oops. Ahem.... anyway...


So, there are sandy beaches at Lake Tahoe. Who knew? It's weird to be sitting on the beach in a swimsuit and glance across the lake at the snow-capped mountains. Best of both worlds. I love it.




Yes, tiaras are a must at the beach. Don't tell me you didn't already know that!




We also had some friends from California stay with us while in town for a baseball tournament. 

This next photo will only appeal to about 10% of you, but it speaks for itself, I think.


And that, my friends, is what happens when you spend the night in a house full of girls.

The end.

A lot of singing, egg cracking, and more singing. And an interview with Sophie.

I loaded these, but never posted them. I'm pretty sure they were all filmed in May.

The first one shows just how long Sophie can keep singing. She'd been singing for about 5 minutes straight before I started the clip. She's nuts. I can't wait to show this to her in about 10 years.

The next one is the girls cracking eggs. And then some singing time at the dinner table. (Know what a zu-kiwi is? Watch and find out. :))

This one is the interview I did with Sophie for her 4th birthday. I think Ivy was more willing to chat than Sophie was. And louder.
