Happy Birthday Blake!

We found this great bubble machine at Costco...
It was a huge hit! The cakes! Yummy from CJ's Bakery!
Good buds - Dana, Lucas and Lila.
Allen was the grill-master.

MorMor and Grandpa John got the coolest gift...
Blake's very first BMW!
Of course, Dana got the first ride.
But Blake did get to enjoy eventually!

Happy Birthday to our very special little man. We love you.

Indoor June Fun

When the weather is crummy out, you get creative with indoor entertainment...
You have fun with, what else, Tupperware! Still some containers in there to pull out Blake!
Dana has figured out she can fit on the top shelf... She loves to pull all the containers out, climb in and shut the door...
no claustrophobia in THIS kid.

Blake having fun with an air pump. Dana's all-time favorite show - Elmo's World on Sesame Street... here she is watching the episode about sleep... so she insisted on making the ottoman into a bed... (an ottoman in front of stereo equipment is essential for a house with a very busy 1 year-old)

June Backyard Fun

June weather has been hit and miss around here... when we do get a nice evening we all jump at the chance to enjoy our yard...
Blake likes to practice drinking out of a big-boy cup...
Although, he still needs more practice - here's his soaked shirt (and Daddy).
Dana showing off HER ability to drink from a big-girl cup.Best Craig's List find - a new play set!
Dana's favorite way to be pushed on the swing... She just yells "Feet!" Such a dare devil.
Blake's got a bucket swing so he can enjoy too.
We look forward to lots more afternoons spent in our own backyard.
Or as Dana calls it "Dana's Park."
We hope to invite lots of friends over to enjoy with us!

Oh No... a walking fool...

Blake has been practicing his walking...

After about a week of practice...

He's doing great!
