She had high hopes. Those hopes were dashed oh so quickly.
To be fair to carrots, oatmeal isn’t a winner either.
So much happened in July and August!
Hanging out with Daddy and Daniel Tiger
Helping Daddy count his money in Star Wars Monopoly… before Mommy won it all.
Ready for a summer garden party!
We got a small backyard pool. Emma loved it!
Helping Daddy get the mail
I need a bigger face so I can smile more! More more more!
Kayaking with family! It was amazing (and very wet!) fun!
Thunderclouds came and crashed the kayaking party, but not before we’d had all our fun!
For both daddy and daughter.
There was much rejoicing! Many thanks to our excellent hosts Chrissy and Bret!
Daddy’s watch was first on Emma’s entertainment itinerary.
- We don’t feed her lemons, we promise.
Ewww! Boy kisses!
Even Great Grandma got in on the popit action!
The parachutes were awesome this year!
Jason and Trevor enjoyed the fireworks
Someone got a little sleepy…
Sometimes the autofocus didn’t quite choose wisely, but it’s a cool effect.
The aerials were fantastic!
What a beautiful day! Thank you too all who shared it with us!
Isn’t my dress just the prettiest? Thank you Grandma van der Horst!
Smiling is my favourite!
Cousin Marshall loves smiling too!
Here Emma appears with her entertainment director and her head chef.
No! Too much love! It smothers me!
All this adorableness is exhausting…
This year, we were the chef(s), the bun, and the oven. Punny, eh? The timer on the oven reads “78 Days Left.”
How could I pass up the pregnant-at-Halloween opportunity?
Our first Trunk or Treat was a great success. The ward had a great turnout, and we got several nice compliments on our costumes and decorations. The balloon pumpkins were super quick and easy to set up; the dry ice was popular (and surprisingly cheap). The white balloon in the upper left was a ghost: he’s got a scary face, but the balloon kept turning. All the balloons have glowsticks in them, but it was too light outside (even after dark), to see them very well. Next year will be even better.
