linus...





blanket goes with us everywhere...even bowling. (i'm sure you are calculating the germs right about now)

i guess it's better than being charlie brown. ben just loves his blanket. it's more like a fuzzy companion...a good friend. ben was MORE than excited about wearing REAL bowling shoes, he asked over and over before the party, "my oooown shoes bowling mommy?"

ahhhh, simple pleasures. of course, they were several sizes too big but no one was going to tell him that.

we finally "celebrated" caleb's birthday...4 months late and went bowling. any excuse for more cookie cake! caleb was VERY patient and knew with funerals in the spring that we were going to celebrate a little late...we were just glad to find some friends home for the summer. most everyone is off to camp or vacation.

not us...we're off to the garage to clean. i'll be sure and send you a postcard.

Ok, that last picture of Ben has the makings of a true Grinch face...look at that chin! Can't wait until you teach him how.

Very cute. How did ben do bowling? Did the blanket go down witht he ball? :) Your kids are so cute.

yep, no vacation happening here. although, ryan has just returned from his second one. he went skiing a few months ago and just returned from 5 days on a houseboat on a lake in arkansas (with the same kid). *sigh* whatever. at least someone's having fun.

cute pics! w still sleeps with "blue" (the bear-headed blanket) and "duckie" (the blanket with, um, ducks on it).

geez. i need a life already.

My first thought was, "those are bowling shoes, he's lying on the floor, with his binkie - EWWWWWWWW THE GERMS!" I guess I am a little germa phobic. Having worked in downtown SF and seeing people pee on the street totally changed my outlook!!! :)
