Best Buds

As many of you know, or maybe you don't, I watch a little boy during the week. His name is Braxton and he is now 9 months old, he and Abby are best buds- most of the time. Like most kids, they occasionally like to torment each other. Braxton loves to pull Abby's hair, and she likes to try to push him over when he's standing up.
Today, they bonded in a very new, and different way. They got tatoos together!!! If you can't tell, Braxton has a dinosaur on his cheek and Abby has a grasshopper on her's. We went to a children's fun fair earlier at one of the parks here in Newton. They got ballons, tatoos, and ate hotdogs and sno-cones. We had lots of fun!! Now, if you are wondering if I did all this by myself with 2 babies, the answer is NO WAY! Braxton's mommy was with us getting to have fun too!
Man, do you realize how nearly impossible it is to get a good picture of 2 babies together?

Summertime fun

Summer is such a fun time of year, if you can look past the blazing heat and all the millions of bugs! We spent lots of time outside as a family, our backyard is one of our favorite spots. When we bought our house 2 years ago, our backyard was like a deserted land. It had no green life (not even weeds lived there) and there was debris everywhere. When we bought our house we inherited broken glass, shingles, bricks, and clay dirt that came with the yard (what an inheritance!) Well, we have put many, many dollars and lots of hard work and sweat into our backyard and are finally pleased with how it is coming out. We now have lots of pretty green grass and a special area just for our 2 doggies. All our hard work in the backyard is finally paying off by having a beautiful view when we look outside.

Abby is just like her daddy, she loves being outside all the time. Just recently, she has learned how to throw a FIT!!! I have to admit, it is kinda cute to see her throwing a fit, although, I know it won't be cute when she gets older. She has started to throw fits now when it is time to in from outside. She arches her back, screams, and kicks her legs when we come in. What can I say? She likes to be outside!

When we aren't playing outside, we are playing in the house. Isn't she just the prettiest little girl ever?

Our very first...

Well, this is our very first blog. We have several friends that have blogs and I have always thought they were cool, so we made one for ourself. I have to admit though, I really have no idea what I'm doing, but I know I will get the hang of this whole blog thing eventually.

One of our very favorite things to do in the summertime is going to the lake! Most of our summer free-time is spent swimming and fishing. We also hope to go camping for a weekend sometime this summer. Abby also shares in our passion of the lake, she loves swimming and playing in the sand. She also likes it when her daddy catches a fish and holds it up for her to see, she yells and claps her hands at the fishes!!!
Well, I think I should go for now.
Check back soon for another post!!!
