Slippin' & Slidin'

The kids had a blast on the slip and slide next door and Cindy took some awesome pics of all the kids. *sigh* more wonderful pictures that will take me forever to scrapbook...hehe. It's been such a great visit so far.
Jojo didn't like that we took her chew toy away
said chew toy

Love this pic of Rye

Rye had such a good time and was very adventurous. She's getting to be so old...


My Mom's neighbor had a fire in the backyard and the kids had a blast making smores. Talk about sugar high...there are some great ones of the other kids, but you'll have to check out the sister's blogs for them (The Beth Chronicles & ScrapFairy).

So....we're having a good time in Washington. Jo is working on her 5th tooth. The 4th came through the day before Father's Day. Rye is having a blast playing with all her cousins. Jo is getting better and better at crawling. She's doing more on her knees and is getting better at sitting up from crawling too. She loves to touch everything and is such a fun little girl. She's got a great little personality and is very expressive. I've got some pics that I'll try and put up soon. We're planning on hitting the zoo for Rye's birthday, that will be fun. Just wanted to check in.

8 years baby!

I can't believe it's been 8 years already. But at the same time I feel like I've loved you my whole life. I miss you so much hunny and it hurts my heart that we're not spending this special day together. We'll have many more to celebrate in the 50 odd years to come, so I guess I can give a few here and there to the Corps. I thought in honor of our 8 year anniversary I'd share 8 memorable moments that I've shared with the bestest hubby in all the world:
1. That first night I saw you. I knew there was something special about you. So special that I couldn't stop thinking about you that whole month before we actually met.
2. The utter embarrassment I felt the night we did meet at Lasers. I'll always remember dancing to Lady in Red with you and the fact that from that night on we were inseparable.
3. The famous Christmas Incident...the Griswold's ain't got nothing on us.
4. Our wedding day. It was so much fun and so relaxed. I love that I drove us all to McDonald's afterward with all of my dress floofed up around me in the drivers seat. I married my best friend that day, it's the happiest of my life.
5. The girls births. You were so amazing and patient at both and so in love with our girls from the first moment you saw them. You are the best Daddy they could ask for.
6. All the times you've made me laugh. You are such a goof in the best way possible. I love that you can always make me laugh.
7. The night you left for Iraq. The tears in your eyes and in your voice as we said good bye. I have never felt to loved in my life.
8. This one hasn't happened yet but I'm expecting it to be memorable. The day you come home. I will be the happiest wife, EVER.

The 7 month pic was taken at the right time, it just took me forever to get around to posting it.
