A digital walk down memory lane

Two years ago today......

.....Add two years, a wedding, and a baby, and here we are!
This is me playing with my little girl. I do that when she's happy, otherwise I try to let her mother do most of the playing... I actually take care of her when she's unhappy too, sometimes.
I guess that we're probably typical parents in that we think she's not only a lot of fun, but probably the cutest baby around.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, you can just consider this a 4,000 word post!

Happy anniversary C&C!

A quick picture update

I'd like to remind you of something I said in my very first post.... It went something like this: "This blog will be something to do on long winter evenings, but when summer comes we'll just have to see how it goes...." Do you see how it's going? We're busy with the garden, keeping up the yard, all the little spring projects, taking care of our baby--- and the list goes on.

So if you don't see as much of us this summer as you have over the winter, it's not that we don't want to keep up and keep you all updated, it's just that we might be too busy for such extracurricular activities as blogging.

I had a good day today of gardening and mowing, and Jenny was able to get outside a little bit too. We sold onions, radishes, lettuce, and spinach at Farmers Market (although very little of each).

Now then, for the pictures.

I got this and the following picture of Taylor Kremer the other night when her family came over for supper. Christi Orendorf (my cousin and her aunt) was here from Maryland, and so we invited Thad and Darla over for a cookout. More pictures of that can be seen on my picasa. I thought that the above picture captured a childs' enjoyment of a swing ride rather well.

Both of these little girls are quite photogenic (in my opinion), and no, I did not "pose" Taylor. That's how she sat to hold Gwendolyn for about fifteen minutes.

Who wants grilled pizza for supper? This brings us to tonight. I grilled pizza. Oh, and those tin foil things are apples. Supper was a success. I took some left over sourdough bread from Farmers Market and cut pieces and laid them out on the pan. Added some pizza sauce and some chicken, topped it with cheese, and grilled it for fifteen minutes. By the way, I don't have a conventional grill, so you might not have good success trying this depending on your grill. The apples were filled with sugar, butter, and cinnamon.

And after supper we were ready to go for a short walk. Here's the baby all ready to get into the stroller, bonnet and all.
