Berries, First Bites, and Camping, and Creatures

We've been so busy lately. Busy having fun that is!
A couple weeks ago we went to a berry patch and picked fresh blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Sooo Delicious! We could tell the raspberries were David's favorite because he had a harder time putting them in bucket and not in his mouth :)

 Here's Lydia working hard at the berry patch.

And everyone else working hard at the berry patch.

I finally decided to give Lydia food. (She just goes crazy when we eat.) Rice cearial seems pretty boring to me, but she couldn't have been more excited! I think she'll be a good little eater. See how happy she is.

David wanted to show me that he liked his breakfast too.

This past weekend we went camping up at Ledges State Park. (If you live in the area and havn't been, you must!) It was so gorgeous and the weather was great!

David was so excited to go camping he was litterally jumping up and down with anticipation.
We went up Friday morning and spent the day hiking, and then stayed over night and hiked more Saturday.

Like I said before, it was beautiful!

David likes the huge bridge.

And Lydia even took a nap! (what a good dad)

I couldn't believe how well David did hiking around. Especially since alot of the trail looked like this!

We went to Ledges a couple years ago and took a picture here, so we had to do it again.

David 'helped' Jason put the tent up and was quite proud.

We saw some deer on our hike, but the best part of the whole trip for David was...

Hunting for creatures!!!!

He caught toads,



Minnows (and more toads),

and Crawdads.

He was absolutely in heaven!!!

Summer Days!

Yes we're still here. Enjoying the summer one day at a time.

Lydia is still growing like a weed and even has a new tooth!
(I was hoping she'd wait a while before teething. David got his first tooth at 9 months and she was only
5 months! Oh well, one down right.)

David is as handsome as ever.

Cody and Lisa are now our neighbors and the kids are loving the extra attention!
(thanks guys)

I don't know if all of you are stuck in this heat wave, but we sure are.
This is what we do when the heat index is 120- stay inside!
David wanted to show off a picture of his dragon.

And when the heat goes back down to 108 or so we go swimming... alot!
(Not the greatest picture I know, but trying to get two kids who are ready to swim to pose for the timer on the camera, not easy.)
