Oh, my poor mother. She uploaded all of these photos months ago but I'm just now getting the time to fill all of you in. At least they'll be there when we grow up and look back on all of this. Reeder here, btw. We're just so wonderfully busy here in the 2 9.
So, this summer (which really lasts all year) was marked by Y's ability to act like a big kid. We're still waiting him to take off on his own two feet-but he tries his best to keep up with Hayes and me any chance he gets.
For instance, the backyard play and snack sessions.
And we still take regular trip wherever. Went down to the big city (Huntington Beach) to hang with a couple of Mom's college friends. Ms. Jaclyn has a pretty awesome daughter that we hung with, too. Here baby was, well, a boring baby, but the day was fantastic.
Homeschoolin. Since you know I do this regularly I sometimes feel the need to share my wonderful teacher with other kids in the neighborhood. Here's me with one of my besties, Chloe, doing our self portraits.
I also feel the need to share my wealth of knowledge with my brother.
Another excursion "down the hill" resulted in some serious jumping.
Check out how high Hayesy went!
These pictures were so long ago I can't believe my different hairstyle. Getting off track, sorry. My turn!
I had a blast!
And don't think we went alone. No way! We dragged (really) our awesome neighbor Ms. Tina and her son, Aaron, with us. This was really moms' friend test. She shopped for swimsuits with Ms. Tina-she passed!
And when Dad comes home from a long day at work we relax, catch up, and just hang-ya know?
Ok, so this is funnier than it looks. Dad was keeping his office a secret. We think he was afraid that we were going to come in unannounce, act like a bunch of banshies, and terrorize the place. So, one Sunday when he was catching a few hours of work during naptime we did just that. We snuck up, found his car, and went looking. Surprise! Guess we may be good Marines one day too, with our incredible stealthness.
