I used to play naked in your paddling pool



sweet horse costume we scored from our neighbors (one of many items...it really pays to have neighbors moving to Hawaii...they are quite generous with their stuff...) :-)









pointing to Daddy's toy helicopter (yes...the helicopter that belongs to the 27-year-old)...she has a little helicopter sign for it....brrrrrrrr..............









 so maybe not a morning person


just kidding........


tearing off a chicken leg...sometimes, she REALLY reminds me of her father.



outing up to Bridal Veil Falls...she loved it. she usually insisted on scuttling unaccompanied...what a shock...but then would get slightly perturbed at tripping over rocks and getting deeper into the glacial waters...yeah, this is the real arctic blast water..... no gatorade flavor....straight from the Wasatch..woooh!




the cold water catching up


the ride back to the car. since she was soaking wet, she slipped into something more comfortable...


naked patio time. obviously the hat is a critical part of the sunscreen strategy



getting a bump! definitely feel more bumpy than #1...joy joy. no, really its great, I am feeling onion baby move all the time and I love it.



Auggie visiting for some paragliding time. Reading a story to the kiddos...


complete with crazy faces...is there any other kind of storytelling? especially by my dad??



We also took a weekend trip to Seattle to celebrate my Grandma Dorene's 80th birthday. It was a surprise music spectacular and it really was a lot of fun to perform a "journey through the decades" with my cousins. 

Here is Nana giving some horsey rides...




Looking out over Lake Washington.





Reading Grandma's special memory book (which was awesome, nice work Denene!!)






obligatory four generation picture. If I can look like these gals in my fifties and eighties, respectively, then I will be a happy camper.



Watermelon girl


She took her lambie outside with her....I believe this was before she decided he needed a "bath" in the kiddie pool. Excellent.


kisses to lambie...her favorite softie that she sleeps with every night.

Naked time! Why not.

I can't wait for your baby bump. you are such a beautiful pregnant woman! ok, you're just beautiful at any time, let's be honest. I love that generation picture you took with your mom and grandma. seriously, the genes! looks like you're having so much fun with Eleanor. she's getting big and cute as ever.
