2009 06 Isn't sumertime great?

What could be more fun than running in the sprinklers, painting with water and playing in the mud created from all the water? It was a perfect afternoon in our backyard.

There are a lot more pictures of our afternoon in our June album.

2009 06 VBS

Click here for pictures

Alyssa loves VBS! After getting into costume, she cried, "Look at me mommy!" It's really Hannah's first full VBS experience as well, she only went one night last year, but since she does a lot of other activities at the church (Preschool, Kid's Night), it's not as much of a thrill as it is for Alyssa.

This year, the theme is the miracles from the book of John.

2009 06 Butterflies

Gramma gave us caterpillars that were getting ready to develop their chrysalises. Today they started emerging... one is stuck and we don't think he'll make it.

(Note - out of 5 butterflies, 4 came out of their chrysalis with no problem... one did not. It finally shook himself so hard... freaking Ryan out a bit... that he freed himself, but his wings remained curled up, so he will never fly.)

2009 06 Father's Day

After a weekend of camping with his #1 Girl, what could be better than to end a marvelous weekend than getting a foot massage from #1 Girl! Hannah also sang her Daddy a beautiful Father's Day Song and showered him with gifts. She had intended to give daddy a full foot massage experience, foot bath and all, but Daddy convinced her that it wasn't necessary.

2009 06 Balloon House

Alyssa loves the movie UP! that we went to see at the end of May. She will wake up in the morning saying, "I watched the movie UP! with daddy, with Hannah and with Yew!" "The house floated away!" "The doggies went in the water!" She loves to tell people about it too.

Today we made a picture of the balloon house. Alyssa had been asking to "make a picture of balloon house." She helped cut the paper, draw the doors and windows and glue everything down. She wasn't too interested in drawing the balloons, so mommy helped. She was quite proud of herself!

2009 06 Hannah's Creative

Mommy was a little bit distracted at the computer and Hannah was very curious...

What would happen if she took the Fabric markers off mommy's dresser along with the sweater mommy was going to sew a button on...

Hannah decided to make her sweater "fancier." Sadly, she did it only a few feet away from mommy without mommy noticing... until it was too late! So as any good mommy would do, I gave the "how could you " lecture... and then told her to finish what she started.

2009 06 CA Adventure

Click here for pictures

We rarely spend time at Disney's CA Adventure, but today we did. We joined Aaron and Bridgette for the early part of the afternoon, then when they went to dinner at Ariel's Grotto, Uncle Eric arrived and we spent the rest of our time there with him. We are still exploring and figuring out the things we like to do best. The Pixar Parade was fun, but you really got wet... and we recommend going to "Talking with Crush." On our way home, Alyssa announced, "I love Uncle Eric." Yes, we do, especially because he loves to go to Disneyland with us!
