Dean and I helped a friend of ours weed in front of her house a couple of weeks ago. He found some random plastic pike and had so much fun digging around in the dirt.
Dean's favorite new thing to do--reach for the camera. He is such a little ham!
Check out those gorgeous baby blues! I still can't believe how much he looks like his big sis, Ambry! They could be twins at that age! I'm going to have to dig up some pics of Ambry at that age and post a compare. :)

Dean likes Starbucks just as much as his mom!
I left my coffee cup laying in the grass while the girls and I worked on painting the playhouse and Dean snatched it right up. There were only a couple of sips left, but he was loving it!
Yummy! Thanks Mom!
LOVE that adorable little face of his!

Some pics of our insanely overgrown garden...and some goodies from said garden
Check our the size of that squash! I have to pick every other day or that is how big the squash get. I can't wait until we start getting tomatoes!
And here is a pic of our tomatoes just to give you an idea on size. I know the pic is a little blurry/totally blown out from the sun, but the tomato plants are taller than Piper and have reached the top of our neighbor's fence. I can't wait to see how many tomatoes we get from those giants!!

The kidlet's new-to-us playhouse
After taking off a week of no blogging...we just didn't have much going on over here :) I thought I would post a couple pics of the kids playhouse being moved into the backyard. Caleb got a skidster from work, hacked a bunch of low hanging branches down, took out the fence, took down my clothes line pole, I dug up a bunch of flowers, shoveled out the sand for beneath the house...need I go on? Anyway, after all of that, the house was able to moved into the backyard.
And, of course, I have no pics of the playhouse in its current location in our backyard. So I will take some more pics later on. Not to mention, I can take pics of the inside once it is all cleaned out--insert icky spiders here--and with its new paint job.

Fourth of July parade
Gerrit and Jen walked from their house to watch the parade for a little while with us.
Piper eating her pre-parade snack.
Dean getting some chips from Daddy. Still can't believe he was eating those things!
And then a bottle to wash it all down.
Cute cousins waiting for the parade to start. Lula
was NOT happy that we had to get their early in order to get a good seat for the parade.
Piper getting a lift from Uncle Gerrit.
Dean all tuckered out.
His sweet baby face says it all. We were all pretty whooped by the end of the parade. It was sooo hot and the parade was sooo long. Fun was definitely had by all though!

Ambry and Piper playing in the bubbles at the bottom of the "slide".
Piper and Toby laying around in the bubbles.
Ambry sliding down.
Piper sliding down.
And Dean hanging out at the bottom of the "slide" watching them all take turns sliding down over...and over...and over again.
This has to be one of the hardiest tarps/plastic things ever! And it works perfect for the kids to make a slip-n-slide out of. Our backyard had just enough of a slant to it that they can get going pretty good. Shoot, I've even gone down the slide and survived. And let me tell you, it is great fun! Can't wait until Esther and her brood
come over. Maybe I can persuade her to go for a ride down the slide too! :)

The cup speaks for itself...
Yummy! Made this recipe here
with a couple of modifications and it made enough to fill my HUGE coffee cup all the way. SO delicious! Obviously, Piper thought so too. :)
