Random July Pictures and Yummy Yummy Goodness

July 22, 2008

I haven’t been so good about posting, but rest assured – we’ve been busy (and I’ve actually remembered my camera for most of the outings!). The girls and I have been enjoying a down day today, so I will take the opportunity of having Emily asleep and Ava embroiled in a letter writing worksheet to post some random pictures from the past few weeks:
