The Past Three Weeks...

Okay, so here we go! The last three weeks have been super busy. I would normally make separate posts for these events, but I am doing good just to get it done :)

Three weeks ago, we went to Pagosa Springs, CO with my family. We had so much fun. My parents have a time share there, so we have been going for several years. This year we had Evan, and my sis-in-law, Lenna, along with us for the first time. We spent the week shopping, sight-seeing, fishing, and just enjoying time relaxing in the 60-70 degree weather.

After getting home from Colorado, we had our annual 4th of July party! It was a great time, as always. Evan got his second tooth and his first haircut on the 4th as well! Also, Gary and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on the 3rd. What an eventful and fun weekend!

Last week, Alex went to Amarillo to visit his Gigi and Grandad. With only one kid at the house, we were able to get a few things done. Gary pulled more baby stuff out of the attic, and Evan was able to try out his duck tub for the first time.

This week, we are trying to take it easy! Alex had me blow up this froggy pool yesterday. We bought it on clearance last summer anticipating Mr. Evan's arrival! It was a big hit. And the sprinkler has some real power to it!

"Big Stuff"

Evan turned six months old two weeks ago, and we have had some major developments in the last fourteen days. He started crawling (or creeping)--whatever you want to call it the boy is now mobile! He can make it across a room pretty quickly if he spies something of interest. He can also sit by himself now, and he got a tooth on Monday of this week!

Gary and I keep telling Evan how big he is getting. Alex, however, keeps telling us, "Tell him he is NOT big stuff!"
