Twiddling Our Thumbs Part Uno

That's what we've been up to anyway- twiddling our thumbs. Yeah, right. Things have gone from about 30 to 90 here in the month of August and is it September already???!!! Between my new calling in to Young Women in church, the final weeks of training for the St. George marathon, and starting up a new part-time gig here at home, the days have been racing by with not a lot of time for blogging. Oh, and I've been lazy. No, make that L-A-Z-Y. So, without further ado, here comes August...

We got a new (much-needed) couch. Now, we can officially entertain without too much seating awkwardness and guest discomfort.


Our little "tub-a-love" as Oliver calls her. She has been spending a lot more time in her bumbo as she has started on solid foods (my least-favorite baby stage).

We attended the Salsa Festival in Old Town Albuquerque a few weeks ago with our friends, the Larsons. We tried about 25 different kids of salsas, some of which made me wonder if I would ever has use of my tongue again. There were some AMAZING salsas, though. So, so fun.

There was even an amateur magic show during the Salsa Festival. No, this guy was not begging for money. Oliver was giving it gladly.

Playing in the fountains in Old Town with Noah and Haley.

We celebrated my friend, Rachel's birthday a few weeks ago (or was it months??). Came complete with roast dinner and funfetti cake and ice cream. Christian and Jake even decided to top it off the an encore performance of "Solja Boy" (see last post).

This is Oliver and his friend Berlynn at Rachel's b-day. Could that pair be any cuter? We're hoping the stars align on this one...

I second all the comments about missing your posts. Yay!

Your couch looks so nice! What a difference that will make.

It hardly sounds like you've been lazy. We do all want to hear about your new p.t. job. Do tell.

"Tub-a-love"--perfect! She looks so adorable and grown-up. How I miss her and Oliver, but I'm so glad we at least get to see pictures. Thanks for sending!
