Our Early Summer Highlights

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I've blogged till I uploaded my the pictures from my camera.  I had pictures on there all the way from June!

I really love this picture of my mom and I.
I was just barley 3 months pregnant and we are heading out for a girls movie date night.

We saw the movie Maleficent, which I highly recommend.  I think it is one of the very best movies Disney has ever made.
If you're a fan of the original Sleeping Beauty animated film just remember that Maleficent is not meant to take to place of or displace Sleeping Beauty. It's just another look at a old story.  Maybe one has to be a mother to truly appreciate this movie... but I'm guessing that others can love this movie too. I'm totally buying it when it comes out on DVD.

Other things that happened in June was lots of lovely warm rain.  I guess most kids stay indoors on rainy days, but it seems like rainy days are the only days I don't have to talk my kids into going outside (as long as there isn't any lightning. We don't go out in the rain if there is lightning).

Rosie and Obi really love "jumping in muddy puddles." 

So now that Summer is nearly over, you can see that our Summer started with lots of great fun.

New play room sneak peek

We've been working on getting the house in order after a run in with a family of skunks living under the house. We've also been trying to make room for the new baby coming in November. 
After weeks and weeks of planning and working and coordinating schedules we finally have the new play room mostly in order. We have a few small finishing touches to put up, but most of the toys are in order and the kids are really enjoying playing in it. 

Here is a sneak peek of the room... The walls are pink and green with an accent of purple.....and a picture of Obi playing dress up with his sister. He picked out this outfit all by himself.
