It was fun to look at these photos of last summer while there was snow on the ground here! (Back in February when I started this post, that is.) Continuing my catching up effort, I’m going to share some memories from last July. At the beginning of the month, Sam started saying “ball” and pointing… Continue reading July 2017, Sam at 13 Months Old
The day after Ari’s birthday was Father’s Day. This is a screenshot from a video I took of Ari talking about the card he made for A. I love how he drew his curly hair, green eyes, and beard!

Lesson 1 of our first camping trip: We… Continue reading June 2017 – Our First Family Camping Trip
I am sooooooo behind! Ugh! It’s almost August and I’m writing about May. Well, here goes! Sam started the month out ON THE MOVE! Lots of crawling and climbing. A.’s parents visited and we went to the zoo! And scoped out venues for Ari’s birthday party. Here are some pictures from Brooklyn Park. Later, Sam… Continue reading May 2017, Sam at 11 Months Old
