Pictures of a picnic

We went on a picnic on Sunday. We stopped by the Muriel Kauffman memorial gardens afterward, looked at flowers (and bricks) and took some pictures. As you see, I'm just now posting them. :)
These are those bricks I was just saying that we looked at. Fascinating, don't you think?
I think it's funny how proud of herself she looks here.

A New Look!

featuring Anne, of course. What do you think? I've always wanted to put a picture in my header, but never taken time to learn how. I love it! And this picture, thanks Steph, was just perfect! yay for new looks.

More pictures

Fun with Gramma!Pat-a-cake with Grampa.
And a picture from right before we left. It's not the greatest, but I realized I didn't have a photo of all of them together. :)

The promised photos

Anne had been kissing the girl in the oven. But I thought this was still cute.

On Sunday morning in Perryton. Anne's wearing my old dress.
Grampa collects elephants. This was one of the few she was allowed to touch. :)

Trip to see family

We went to see my grandparents in Texas this last weekend. Got back last night. It was a lot of fun. They love Anne! She basked in all the attention. :) On the way to Texas, we stopped by Oklahoma City, to see my brother and the college Ben and I attended. It was fun to show Anne off to our old profs, etc. I'll end with some pictures, but here's a few thoughts:

Funniest thing I saw: on the way back, in Kansas, I saw on elderly old-order Amish couple eating at a McDonalds. Struck me as very amusing. I had to work not to laugh. :)

Scariest thing: Splashed water completely covering the car windshield so I couldn't see anything in Oklahoma City. It was just for a moment, but I think I must have gotten the most concentrated shot of adrenaline I've ever gotten, because once it was over, I realized I was numb all over. Very scary! (On that note - why, when you can't see anything, would anyone drive 40? I was going 25 part of the time! It was a stupid driver of a passenger truck that splashed water to cover my car. Stupid drivers! argh!)

Okay, pictures: ummmm....I ran out of time. Maybe I'll post them tomorrow. :)

Breastfeeding is green!

Thank God for good doctors

We finally found a nice doctor for Anne! Hallelujah! This is the fourth primary care doctor she's seen in her short life, so it's about time for one of them to be a good fit for us. I know, I know, we're a little difficult - what with the lump on her back and the delayed vaccinations and the sleeping with us and the cloth diapers, but really - we're not aliens! Or hicks. Or hippies. Or stupid. So thanks to this doctor for not acting like it.
