Time Flies!!!!

My baby is 5 months old!

I never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies the older you get. Just yesterday, she fit on my chest. She hummed and purred like a little kitten. Now, she is squirmy, curious, full of smiles, and trying to grow up too fast. She has two bottom teeth- one more out than the other. Today, she rolled over for the first time- back to belly and then belly to back. She started to suck my banana and then bit a chunk off. I am sad that she is growing up so fast, yet, it is so exciting to see what she is going to do next. She is already forming her game plan to start crawling. World beware! WE LOVE YOU SHANNON! Thank you Heavenly Father for her!

I am famous for my millions of pictures. I am also famous for not being able to pick just one picture! Here is another slide show of her from birth to 5 months. I tried to pick pictures not already on the blog!

Our Summer

Well, it is time to catch up on the blog. Our summer was AWESOME! It was the best summer I can remember having up here. The average temperature was above 67. There were times when we were close to the 80s! We got out the sprinklers and played! Our water is so cold! We started out the summer alone. The kids and I would often take walks, ride bikes, rent movies, and play at the lake. The kids loved to catch fish and play in the sand. We saw a lot of geese at the lake too. Grandma and Grandpa came up in time to watch Sarah play soccer! She averaged 2-3 goals per game. Two games she had 4 goals! She was fast and caught onto the game quickly. We passed the time waiting for the baby to come by going to the zoo, going to Lowe's to do the build & grow workshops, playing games, and watching the kids ride bikes and play in the couldesack. Sarah learned how to ride a two wheel bike in the the spring. By the end of the summer, she was riding like a pro! Scott is very close to riding with two wheels too. We were visited by my cousin and her kids from New Mexico. My kids loved playing with them. We toured the state by going to the the wild life conservatory and the glacier. It was so cold at the glacier! We also went looking for whales. It was really fun to see them! We took G & G to a lot of fairs and parades! Our city has a lot going on during the summer. We were so excited once the baby came! We got to have dad with us! Unfortunetly for me, I had to endure a two week marathon of Bones. Thanks Shane for that! We fought over the baby. She was and still is a calm, happy, easy-going baby. Mom still trumps Grandpa! The summer went by so fast! I hope next year is just as nice!
