what we've been up to...

Lots of playing outside! Kathryn brings me her shoes, then mine, constantly throughout the day to go out. On this particular day, I didn't even bother to change her out of her pj's. I just put her shoes on and out we went. Notice her choice of shoes, too. They are hand-me-downs from some friends, and although they're just a little big for her, she loves them. They are by far her favorite, and anytime we let her pick out her own shoes, these are the ones she brings us.

Taking fun pictures of ourselves!
Whenever I start to cook now, Kathryn runs to the drawer and gets me my apron. It's so funny, and she's so sweet to want to help.

Then she likes to help me cook. Last night after getting me my apron, she cleared off a kitchen chair (it had some papers on it) and scooted it over to the counter so she could help. She loves to pour things and stir. Of course we use safety precautions with hot pots and such...she just has to watch me with those!

Watering our garden. We planted a little late, so we don't have any veggies yet, but we're hoping for a good crop of tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and green beans!

And watering our flowers. Kathryn loves to help water, mostly by getting in the water!

Selling houses! Johnny sold his first house! He's been very busy with Real Estate since school has been out.

Here's KK's new house!

Playing in the sandbox.

We're looking forward to a busy month of travel as we'll be heading to the beach three different times between now and the beginning of August! So, if updates are rare, that's why. But I'll try to update as much as possible with lots of fun beach pictures, and if the places we stay has internet and I have time, I'll see what I can do!

On another note, the counter on our blog says we've gotten over 10,000 visitors now!

It's great that she loves the outdoors. I's so excited that Johnny sold his first house. I know he will do great in real estate. Hope ya'll have a great time at the beach. Be safe & have fun. Can't wait to see beach pictures.

I love that you wear an apron when you cook! That's soo mommyish and very cool! =) You'll have to plan for some Garcia time in the midst of your busy summer plans!
