We had so much fun with the Hickeys in Tahoe. Love, love, love their cabin as usual. We put the kids in chariots and on bikes and rode down to the Lake. Burrrrrr. We went trout fishing with no luck. We hiked (and Jane napped). The weather was awesome and the kids loved just playing around the cabin.

I attempted my first "fancy" cake thanks to Melissa. Lucy has been asking for an Elmo party for literally an entire year. So she got it.

Latest Happenings

We're off to Tahoe this weekend with the kiddos. Should be fun- hike-bike-enjoy the last little bit of summer. Lucy turns 3 on Sunday so I'm making an ELMO cake, thanks to the help of my talented girlfriend Melissa. Stay tuned for pictures. Then Lucy's taking two buddies to build a bear next week. And then we're celebrating again with the family on the 13th. The Hobbys (my in-laws of course) will have moved back from NC by then - yipeeeee. A birthday just like I like, it goes on for weeks and weeks.

Here are Reese and Janie this week. Janie loves dance parties in the family room with the girls while mom tries to make a living "working" nearby on the computer. Gotta keep them entertained somehow. Here she is at 10 months.

Cousin Amelia

Reese and Lucy love their cousin Amelia- or "Melia" as they call her. She's 11 weeks now and is approaching Jane in size and weight. Kristina sure grows them healthy.

Reese Starts School!

YIPPEEEEEEE! Reese started Kindergarten this week. I think the buildup all summer was almost too much. The morning of she was so excited she dressed herself and was ready two hours early. Here she is right before we left.

She loves Mrs. Bambury. Everyday this week she's said "Can you believe I go to Kindergarten?" Lucy will start preschool on Tuesday and Thursday in a few weeks. Just 2 1/2 hours. But then it will be just me and Jane for a grand 5 hours a week (less driving time, prep time, etc. of course)! Whatever will I do with myself? :)

Jane Pops Up

Jane is pulling herself up now. I love the first time you walk into their room and they've popped up so proud of themselves. I ran and got my camera.

She loves to say uuh-ooo. And dadadada. And when I say "Say mama" she says "dadadadadada," just to prove to me who she loves best. And now she's waving. It's so fun to watch Reese and Lucy try to get her to perform her tricks.

We hit the 4th of July parade downtown for the 5th year in a row. It was the 50th anniversary of the parade, and 150th anniversary of Danville. These are the kind of facts I used to find lame, now I find quaint and a sweet bonus to living in such a nice place. Uncle Mike and Cousin Mason joined us while Auntie stayed at home with 3 week old Milly. Lucy melted down first as we were leaving the parade. We hit a few more parties and rallied for the fireworks with our friends at Central Park. Jane even stayed up until 10. Then they all collapsed in a heap of whining and were asleep before we made it out of the parking lot. Oh, I love holidays.

The Dresses Grandma Bunny Made

These are the dresses my mom made for the girls for our trip to Hawaii last month. The girls love them and wanted to wear them to church today.
