Year #2

It has been a while since the last entry and for that I have to say things have been busy! Too busy to write! But I guess I'll start catching up! About 2 weekends ago (August 18th to be exact, Kyle and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary! We went to a bed and breakfast about 30 miles away in a woodsy town called Wasilla. It poured rain the entire weekend, but we were determined to go see the nearby lake so here are a few pics from it. Also we brought our bikes and rode in the downfall. Needless to say we were soaked and freezing by the time we got back to the place but luckily our room had a gas fireplace so we were nice and toasty within minutes! Anyway, it was a good time to reflect upon the many great times we've had in the past and to imagine what great things lie before us!

Dog Pile!!

Baby loves laying on her belly so we decided to make a pyramid. Although about 2 seconds after taking this picture she started to cry. Baby is getting so smiley and happy but now she's started a phase where we've got to entertain her in order for her to stop crying. In the picture on the left, she's cracking up from a funny face her dad is making at her. Doesn't it look like she's saying, "Oh dad! Are you crazy or what?!" I think she's got the right idea when it comes to Kyle being a crazy character!

Bathing Bunny!

Brighton loves taking her baths! She's always so calm and happy in the water. Thanks to the Grahams, we have this oh so cute bunny towel to wrap her up in afterwards! Today we moved her from the sink to the big tub and she was not a happy camper! When her face returned to her natural color after being beet red from crying, we took her out to dry off. After working herself up so much, she slept the afternoon away. It made for a productive day! We love her so much!

Lawnmowing Madness

Today was a monumental day for Brighton and I!! It was the first time ever that we mowed the lawn! I know it's kind of an embarrassing thing, but I've never mowed the lawn before so we decided to go out as a family and get our hands dirty! It was fun and Brighton loved the loud noises! She is starting to explore like never before and enjoys the outdoors! We are sad that the summer is drawing to an end because we are actually able to start exploring the wilderness with baby, but I guess we can just introduce snow to her soon enough!
