Here are a few of my favorites from July.
|On July 4, Stella playing in the meadow at Average's family's Blue Mountains cabin with her second cousin, Ursula, and doggie Glen.|
|This is the view from the little covered patio at the condo we stay at in Pendleton.|
I think it is the best spot in town, and I ate breakfast and dinner
looking out at this every day we were there.
|The best hair-do I can currently do on little Sweet Pea. She is pretty patient with this one|
because she likes braids. She always wants me to do braids in my hair too!
|Just pretty much the epitome of a happy summer day for me: backyard time and a little splashing in the pool.|
She runs everywhere she goes, if I haven't mentioned that already.
|I prefer metal slides to the plastic ones, don't you?|
|Because of this fun rocking toy, this particular park is now known as the "purple dinosaur park" to my daughter. She loves it!|
That's it! I did take a few photos of my process of making applesauce with early apples from our backyard trees, and raspberries that Sweet Pea and I picked, and hope to get around to a post about how it's going raising food in our backyard this year - which is not as well as I'd like, but not too bad either. I also have a post about the wooden kitchen set that Average bought Sweet Pea at a garage sale, and her favorite toys at age almost-two-and-a-half. Oh, and one more planned post about weaning! It finally happened! So, stay tuned. I have lots to share, but little time to write, even though I'm not working outside the home at the moment. Thanks for reading!
