When I grow up

After cleaning the toilet, Scarlett was delighted to tell me she now knows what she wants to do when she grows up. She wants to be a toilet cleaner. Dream big little one.


Usually Scarlett doesn't care much for princesses but today she wanted to dress up.

First haircut

She sat like a champ!  Just a bit of a trim and a purple and blue hair extension.

Buzzed Buddies

Perry and Max give themselves summer cuts.

Here is a good before picture to show how much hair that kid had.  Must be a lot cooler without it!

Gilroy Gardens

Hot and way too crowded but a really fun place for kids. Lots of great rides for the little ones.

We just had a wonderful camping trip with two other families, our kids first!  We stayed at Samuel P. Taylor state park in a family group site which was perfect, except for the log of yellow jackets who also lived there.  Thankfully the yellow jackets didn't bother us and we were able to peacefully co-exist for the two days we spent there.  The kids got nice and dirty, we ate some good food, went on a hike, played in a swimming hole, made s'mores, and had a little adult time by the fire after we put the kids to bed.  The sweetest moment for us was when we returned to our tent after hanging with the adults at night we found Max and Scarlett cuddling as they were sleeping.  It's definitely a lot of work camping with kids but it really was a good time for everyone.
