Some Summer Stuff...

My nephew, Alecks, in Soitsambu, Masailand. He is back home now in San Diego after several months in England, Kenya and Tanzania, serving with YWAM.

Lee's aunt and uncle gave us a giftcard for Applebee's, so off we went for his birthday dinner!

******
Yes, we registered at Babies R Us. I know it is early, but I decided I had waited long enough. It was a fun date, actually, and I felt very loved and quite delighted that Lee pulled into this parking spot...

My great-nieces slept over this weekend...Ava's first sleepover at our house. All went well except for when she realized she was ACTUALLY sleeping over! We went to the park. I love the determined walk that the girls take on when they are excited about something. One of the fun things that Ava said was, "I need to have a turn leashing the dog."

Corene and her buddy

Unta Wee and Ava

There were too many fun and funny moments to share, but I HAVE to share one story. Early in the morning I awoke to a loud sing-songy call from Corene. "Aunt Daaaaaaaawwwnnn" over and over. I went into the room. I said, "Sshh...what's the matter?" And she whispered back, "Umm, I have to go to the bathroom, but I'm afraid that the flushing will be too loud and I will wake everybody up!" I had to laugh as the calling out already did wake everybody up! I just love the way kids process things!

We took the girls to the lake and had a great time

We got this picture today of Patricia from another waiting family. It is always such a gift to get a new picture! I think she is quite photogenic.

Gaw, I'm such a softie. I got tears in my eyes at Lee's pulling in to the expectant mothers parking space. I also had to laugh because I started a baby registry this week, too! Hope Lee had a happy birthday!

Greg's Wife said...

Oh yes, and P is GORGEOUS as usual!

I love that he pulled into the expecting mother's parking spot - VERY intentional and loving toward you! And, of course, I love the new pics of Patricia!!!!! Thanks for sharing!

I got tears in my eyes too about the Stork parking.

P has such a genuine smile, it's contagious. I can't look at her without smiling.

I love love love all the family photos! You love like your having a great summer. It is fun to register!

For some reason I felt like I should not do it when waiting for Evan,since I already had 3 children. But they are all grown now. I really missed not doing it though. Terry
