Future Miss America

I realize that the 4th of July is long gone, but I stumbled across some pictures I had forgotten we had taken. I had gotten this dress for Abby a while ago, and I made sure she wore it more than once. (so as to not be wastefull)
Here are some great shots.

This was the best of the color pictures.

"... I want World Peace. And a giant chocolate bar."
"I'd like to thank the little people..."
Andy is posing the be the next Gerber baby. Love those teeth!
The two pics look a lot alike, but I swear they are different!
He's the happiest baby in the world!

Grammy and Grandpa Joe visit

Grammy and Grandpa Joe came to visit. (a while ago... I am slow getting pics on here) Andy had his follow-up appointment to check his ears and the grandparents agreed to watch the other two so I could just take Andy.
The appointment went great. Andy's ears are all clear. There's really not much else to report.... so here are some pics.

Here is Grammy reading "Chicka-Chicka- Boom-Boom". She was trying to entice Isaac to come over, but he decided the movie was better. (he'll learn one of these days)

But Isaac was happy to come over for a picture. He won't pose for pictures at JC Penny's, but he will at home. Joe is going to set up a photo shoot soon to get the pictures I wanted.

Here is Abby. She's sporting drool stains, which are all the rage with the babies this season.

Here is Andy. He's just cute.

Here's a great picture of Grammy and the kids. Abby is glad to be front and center.
Grandpa Joe was a great sport and played with the babies on the floor. They were greatly impressed with the toys that they received. Joe and I are patiently waiting for the batteries to die.

Isaac goes to Savage Gulf

Hey everybody! Isaac here writing on the blog. I got to go to Savage Gulf State Park today with Dad. It was pretty cool.

The first part was pretty easy, but I wanted to start with something difficult. I told Dad I wanted to go on the Laurel falls trail first. Mostly because it had dirt and not pavement like the trail he wanted to go on. It was a short 0.3 mile loop that we went on. I got to see a little waterfall and a frog! I put pictures of the waterfall and frog below.

After we left the frog, I told him bye, and we went on to Stone Door. Stone Door is a rock formation that the Indians used to access the valley below. It looks like a giant door in the cliff face. We could see it clearly from the first overlook on the trail, Laurel Overlook.

Once we got to Stone Door. A man there was nice enough to take our picture. Mom did not like the fact that we were standing on a cliff, but Daddy kept me from the edge.

Daddy got a lot more pictures that maybe I will show later, but just know, I really like to play in the dirt.

After Stone Door, daddy took me to Greeter Falls. He was really upset with himself for going to the bottom because it was so steep, but I had fun. I even had so much fun that I made Daddy carry me on his shoulders when we were leaving. I know he loved that. But Greeter falls was pretty cool.

It was nice and cool at the bottom. Daddy really did not want to leave, but I think it was because of the climb up.

Oh and did I mention there was also a 30' tall spiral staircase. I actually climbed that step by step. It was pretty neat.

Daddy and I had a lot of fun. He wanted me to add this picture below to the blog because he really liked how it turned out.

All in all it was a pretty good day. I really enjoyed sleeping in the car on the way home. Dad added it up and we did 0.3+1.1+1.1+1.4 = 3.9 miles today. He was worn out and complained about how he needed to get in shape. I just hope that means we will do this a lot more.

Isaac Hiking

Hey guys! Isaac has taken over the blog again and I want to tell you about a quick trip Daddy and I took to Pigeon Mountain WMA which is near us.
Daddy wanted to take me to Rocktown, which is a really neat area that has huge sandstone rock formations. Mommy thinks it is pretty stupid.
We did not get to hike too much because a big thunderstorm came up and we had to leave. But Daddy did get to get pictures of me in the woods.

For those out there who are freaking out over this picture, don't worry. Daddy did not put on the edge of cliff. I was a bit disappointed when we stopped at this overlook because I thought we were going to see baseball. But instead we saw the next picture instead.

I really liked walking on the trail. It was pretty fun.

This was the what the trailhead looked like. I did not know what to think at first but once we got going I just wanted to explore.
Unfortunately, because of the rain we had to leave, but Daddy promised to take me back.
