At the Park!

Abigail is such a happy girl~especially when it's cool enough to go outside!

We lost this bow in the wind! I closed my eyes for 1 second and it was literally gone! I couldn't see or find it anywhere! If it ends up in my backyard next month- that would be awesome! It was a crazy, Mary Poppins kinda windy day!

It's a little dark- but so cute!

The slide...over and over and over! I don't think she would ever get tired of it!

Garden Fun!

We found a HUGE catepillar in our garden! Watch out. They eat through leaves pretty quick! This one had quite the stinger too.

Here's one of our first picked watermelons. It was yummishous!

Abby gave it kisses! lol

Painted Kitchen....Finally! :)

As you saw the beginnings in the previous post, we painted our kitchen yellow.

It's nice to have a touch of decoration in this part of the house. We've been meaning to do it for a while now.

Abby the Climber!

This was a while back when Abby first started climbing up everything. She's our little monkey!

She LOVED the idea of a ladder--something MADE to climb up! Whoohoo!

At first going up was easy then she'd get stuck. But she figured the going down part out pretty quick.

The Smell of Voting is in the air!

We just wanted to remind all our Arizonan family and friends to register to vote. The deadline is coming fast--Oct 1st to mail it in, Oct 6th to register online. And if you've recently moved (which is pretty much all of my family in AZ...) you have to change your address with the DMV and then re-register pretty much. So please- get online and do it! (at the bottom is a box that says "Vote Arizona" in it). Some really important Propositions to vote on this time around. Our vote counts!

We love you all!

Pictures coming soon. :)

...And Found!

So, we found out to do something fun to take pictures of. We'll have something interesting up soon, I promise! :)

We Can't Find Our Camera... you get my drawing instead:

Oh, I should mention again that this is Dave writing.

First, I could never draw Amber well enough to do her beauty justice. So just image the most beautiful woman you can here.


And now for some explanation! We conquered the garden on Labor Day. It had simply gotten out of hand. I drew the spider, because there were no less than eight of these monstrous beasts holding our harvest hostage. I actually used our old vacuum to suck them all up, and then disposed of them discretely. You may say that that's inhumane. I say they're inhuman.

In all honesty, it was more a matter of safety. The overgrowth had attracted bugs, spiders, and even mice. Since our neighbor recently found a young rattlesnake in her yard, we decided to try to discourage snakes from exploring our yard by taking away their food source.

On a brighter note, we're now up to 11 watermelons on the vine, which vine has taken over a full corner of our yard.

And on a more personal note, I hope that you enjoy my 'tweets' on the corner of our page here. I try to keep them witty, relevant, and enjoyable to read. It's all in preparation for building a community around our upcoming webcomic. Stay tuned!
