Here's a sweet little photo of our family just before taking off to help a younge couple celebrate their marriage at their reception in Maine. Ella looked SO adorable in her little outfit. And man o man does she look like me as a child in this picture! We tried to take the milk away. Really we did. But we had to wake her from a nap to get her going and the jaws of life themselves weren't going to pry that cup from her face!Look at the hard workin' man! And all this wood is only HALF way through our first pile...these stacks are a good 30ft long and they wrap around the corner too! I've said it before, I'll say it again. This child is an adrenaline junky just like me. A new found joy this summer is swinging in the big girl swings. And she has to go, "WEALLY HIGH!" or nothing at all! Her new fave snack (thanks to daddy letting her pick out the absolutely worst kind for you at the grocery store... ahem.) is the "nanola bar." I spring for the Annies version!Ooops! Dropped a piece! "Where'd it go!?"C'mon! I've got to put in the obligatory potty picture! Especially with her on the big potty!The other day, after a bit of alone playtime I came into the playroom to find this: When I asked her what she was doing she said, "I packin' my bag to go to gramma's house." I see. And surely every girl needs a cowboy hat to go to gramma's! This is everything she had put in it! So cute! The garden is growing like crazy. We're splashing in pools and running through sprinklers to stay cool and we're stacking wood like crazy so we can move on to tackle the indoor renovation projects.That's what's happening 'round here!
