Happy Birthday Daniel!

My little nephew turned two years old a couple of weeks ago and we met them at a park in Atlanta for a party. It was a really awesome park for you Atlanta folks, we had never been there before but they had several different (shaded!!) playgrounds, perfect for all ages, and a little stream to splash in. It's called the Liane Levetan Park, for those of you looking for a new place to play.

Testing out Danny's new bike. Anna said she wants a big bike now too - maybe we can finally convince her to hand down her tricycle to Maddie!!

You can see that the theme of the party was Elmo - Maddie was thrilled and kept pointing out the Elmo balloons.

These little pudding cups were a big hit with the kids - Maddie is glaring at me in this picture because I had just told her she couldn't have another one.

Steve went on a backpacking trip with his Tennessee friends, and the girls kept saying they wanted to go camping too. Imagine their delight when I pulled this out of our baby storage closet!

They are supposed to be in time-out in this picture, the stinkers.

Our garden, although we've changed a few things around since we took this picture. We've already picked some strawberries and blueberries and have a bunch of tomatoes growing on the vines!

Maddie has graduated to the big slides at the park and she will happily play on them almost the whole time we are there!

The girls helped me make this for Steve for Father's Day, it's now hanging up in our kitchen. Anybody who has ever eaten a meal with Steve knows that ketchup is some serious business in this house!!
