Hey everybody! It’s my gym face. I only go to the gym once or twice a week now, but I ENJOY it, dammit.
Wonder what these tiny white flowers are in the front yard? They smell similar to lilacs, but not as sweet.
For reasons having nothing to do with me, I am temporarily jobless. BOOOO. However, it’s July, my favorite summer month, I have a freezer full of Mexican popsicles, and all I gotta do is keep my baby alive every day. Life’s not too shabby.
Ah shucks this photo reminds me that we still haven’t picked those black currants in the front yard.
I drugged both of the dogs up for the 4th of July, and they did great. Even Mr. Baby did great. I, on the other hand, was extremely grumpy! I couldn’t believe how noisy the fireworks were this year!
I glittered myself up for the occasion. I also wore a red/white/blue dress I bought from H&M last year, but I’m not going to post any photos of that because my arms are just too damn fat. I have 5 months to lose 20 pounds. Do you think I can do it???
Awww look at Goo, secure in the arms of Ronia. She was really the only cousin who paid attention to him. Well, Elliot did come over at one point and affectionately call him, “The spawnliest spawn”, which I took as a compliment.
Brenna made him this super-cute outfit.
Guess what we did last Thursday?
We took our special Goo camping for the first time!
He did so good. He even slept in the tent, in his little baby cradle, from 10-6, and didn’t wake up when Bear Cub went BARK BARK BARK at something/someone in the middle of the night.
I was so proud of him! Now I don’t have to be nervous for the next time that we go camping. I’d like to go again, ASAP.
Look, there’s me.
Fleeta found this tiny flannel for Mr. Baby, and it just happens to match Josh’s perfectly.
We went to one of our favorite spots, and camped with the car nearby, instead of hiking…first time we’d done that since 2010.
The dogs had a great time, as always. The next camp over had a crazy old skinny man named Dave who smoked weed, gave us oatmeal cookies, and played the damn recorder at 2 o’clock in the morning. Oh Dave!
I took this photo for Christopher, who has an irrational hatred of my Chacos.
Mr. Baby loves nature.
Welp, I’m just gonna have to be fat this summer. That’s life! That’s what happens when you have a baby!
Josh in his Hendrix trunks…always a good look.
“I wonder when the movie theater will become obsolete?” I asked Josh on the way in to see “Alien: Covenant” Saturday afternoon…and lo and behold, we were the only patrons! Until the film started, and about 3 people trickled in. It was good, but will never top the first two in the series.
Today my big boy is six months old! Time is going by too fast. I’m going to cook him a yam tonight for his first food…can’t wait to see his face!
