What Justin's up to....

Walking, of course! He has decided to follow in Sissy's footsteps! He took that first tentative step at 8 months, and that has progressed to 4-5 at a time after pulling himself up. Now he will stand up without pulling up on anything, and take a few steps. Thought I would share a little video I was finally able to catch!

Amy's camp Video

Amy spent a week at Camp Marshall this year- it is a 4H camp, with a focus on "horsemanship" they learned to ride, and care for the horses. Great program, and Amy loved it!

Here is a video of her end of week demo they had for the parents. Here's a pic of her with "her" horse Ginger.

We're still here...

Just hanging out! Summer has been really rainy so far, Justin is getting big- took his first solo steps yesterday! He has 4 teeth, and another looking to pop through any time. He waves hello and bye, says Mama, Dada, Ah Du (all done), loves to help unload thedishwasher, take outthe recycling, and empty my purse, and play peeka boo.

Amy is off at summer camp. She is at Camp Marshall, a 4H camp, doing their "Saddle up" program, where she learns all about horses, including riding and taking care of one. They get to do regular summer camp type things like swimming, arts and crafts, ect. We go pick her up tomorrow- she's been gone a week!

Mark and I are doing well, I have lost all the weight I put on while pregnant w/ Justin (Yeah!).
And since I have been asked, yes, we are hoping for another sooner rather than later!

We bought Justin his first car recently- a classic, American-made red coupe!

Amy's handywork

Wow! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted! I promised Amy I would post this video she made of the car she has constructed. Everything is going great here- She has finished 5th grade, and starts middle school in the fall! She is also going away to summer camp this summer- a whole week of horse riding lessons, and learning to take care of them- including mucking out the stalls! 2 weeks of VBS, a possible trip to Niagara Falls in August after Justin's passport gets here (we want to jump up to Canada, too) . I am also trying to throw in some swimming lessons (for Amy) and Justin is enjoying baby lap story time at the library every week. Some trips to the ice cream stand down the road, some bike riding, and a slip and slide pizza party should round out our plans! Justin is growing big- almost 19.5 pounds, and is very mobile, trying to walk!

Follow the Bouncing Ball

Every time Amy would bounce her superball, Justin would bust out laughing- I decided to get it on video! He was torn between the ball and trying to get the camera!

Mommy's Little "Helper"

Mother's Day Trip

Spent Saturday at the beach! Justin's first "dip", and being the California Girl she is, Amy could not be kept out of the water no matter how cold it was!
