But let's give it a go, shall we?
When last we met, I was trying to be crafty and pinteresty.
You can imagine how well that has gone, what with my blazing drive for perfection and my goal-oriented task-i-ness.
Rather than me getting all wordy, let's tell the story with pictures!
YAY! THIS WILL BE SO FUN!
So the same day Anna learned to wink....
Lainey ended up in the ER (for reasons other than puking) for the first time. My girl is so talented she fell UP the steps (while keeping an eye on the Dbacks bobble heads) at a baseball game and nearly broke her nose. Love. Her. Heart. She was fortuitous enough to take a before photo.
Thankfully, it wasn't broken and neither was she. She was so brave. There is still a small scar on the side of her nose. She blames the giant bobble heads. I blame her genes.
Despite a tragic end to what could have been a stellar career in nose modeling, she's still a champion hula-hooper. Which is really all a parent could ever hope for.
See? Still smiling! And hey*! Isn't my girl a great hooper? Who says daddy's athleticism isn't being passed down?
Shortly after that we packed our bags
said goodbye to some dear friends

And hit the open road. Again.
Which brings us to mid-June.
Good gravy, this is going to take awhile.
*Uncle Si rocks. The end.
*For the record, in the black and white photo, our buddy, Joe got cut off. I don't know why. I have attempted to fix it and will continue to do so, but I promised myself I would hit "post" today. Because you know how I hate to procrastinate...... Snarkiness aside, deepest apologies to Joe. He's very handsome. Too bad you can't see that.
