boy time flies in blogs. especially mine. :) here's september, just a bunch of busy nothings as jane austen says.
chillin in shades.
playing some tunes
cutie pants
ice cream!!!
greek goddess

shaving her feet. don't worry, the guard is on the razor. it's pretty scary how much she copies me!


this month we did some fun stuff. we went camping with grandpa, grandma, and nathan's family. nathan and ainsley.


nathan's kids.

by the waterfall.

kate loved playing outdoors. the sleeping part could use some help and will be better next year i hope. she loved hiking too. it was fun to take her out and about during the day. she's such a nature girl it was so much fun to see her in her preferred environment. we even saw some wildlife. a big deer was eating by our campsite one morning and came almost within a few feet of me. we also watched a snake eat something. grant and meghan loved seeing the indian dyed figure in the rock cave. it was a lot of fun.
kate also started baking with me a lot more this month. she has discovered a new fondness for the fine art of stirring and cracking eggs. it's a lot messier but worth the fun!!

the rest of july.

how sad. i am just finishing up july on the blog and it's almost the end of the year. well, i'll work as fast as i can and finish out the year. the rest of july was a whirlwind of swimming, zoo, playing with cousins, and hunting out every bit of chocolate kate could find. playing with kate and her cousin ainsley

swimming at the steiner gym pool

i have no idea what this is. green frosting from grandpa's birthday cake i think.

chocolate. chocolate chocolate chocolate. with a smile that large what else could be all over her face.

believe it or not, kate is eating broccoli and peas. she's a great veggie eater so far...

the zoo:

kate's favorite thing at the zoo is the carousel. she cries like the world is ending whenever we get off. luckily she has many distractions in the animals. her cousins joined her once for a visit this year.
