Just a day in the life



They've imprisoned me and now I'm in an eighty's hair band...It's tough to be Kent and Cara's daughter I tell ya'.

Chillin with Grandma & Grandpa











Steve and Anna joined us at our cabin over the weekend to enjoy some fun in the sun. Annika showed them just how great she was by sleeping through the night and frolicking with the new baby gym Sean and Nichole passed along to us. Annika was having a squealing good time all weekend long as she got to spend some quality time with Grandma & Grandpa. Thanks again for everything Anna & Steve...we all had a great time!

Gardening Skills


This is what happens when you have your first child.

You buy a tomato plant...never plant it...and only water it once a week.

I must admit I am impressed with the little guy...he put everything he could muster into this one tomato.

Giggle's and Grins

video

Boom Shakalaka!







This year we decided to bring the party to Grandma and Grandpa Channing's house for the 4th of July. We invited a few friends and Grandma C went crazy with the fireworks (as usual) There was good food, a slip and slide for the gaggle of kids, and way too much TNT at the end of the night.

Annika did great all day long especially because we had so many willing helpers that held her throughout the day. She didn't even seem to notice the fireworks exploding right in front of her.

Sunday Smiles #2

video

Annika found the camera highly interesting but we were able to catch a couple of smiles from her. It seems like everytime she sees us she is giving us a big smile these days. Once again I could spend my whole day just watching her wiggle and giggle.

Fathers Day




What can I say....Father's Day will never be the same. New to the whole Fatherhood thing...I didn't know what to expect. I have been told that Annika has ordered me a gift but it won't be here for another week or so. I may not be a brain surgeon...but I have a sneaky suspicion that Mom might have had something to do with it....still...I can't wait to see what it is.

For my first Father's Day Grandpa C and I had an early round of golf and then we met up at Grandpa & Grandma Channing's house with Cara, Grandma C and Aunt Natalie for dinner and relaxation. Quite the perfect day. Can't wait until next Father's Day.

Annika's first festival





For Father's Day weekend we all heading down to St. Edwards Park for the annual Washington Brew Festival. Annika slept through most of the action and didn't seem to mind being outside with all of the people around. Thanks Pat for babysitting while Mom and Dad got to taste a couple of the local brews.

Hands & Feet




















Hey Mom...you see the size of that papaya?

We were at our house over in Desert Aire and the local market had some Mexican papayas for sale that were absolutely huge! Easily the size of a football...our belly's were quickly full as it did not last long. Annika didn't seem too impressed though.
