Apparently we have really beautiful light in our back yard in the afternoon. And also my kids are always really happy in the swing. Why didn't I put that together before?

Spent an awesome weekend with great friends:
Received visits from my grandma
And from my family-- the world travelers. They just got back from a
trip to England and Italy. It was difficult not to feel a little sorry
for myself for not getting to go with them.
Enjoyed the flowers at City Market.
Bought a couch. It was a very impulsive buy. I love vintage furniture
and have been (very) s- l-o-w-l-y collecting pieces.
I'm very happy with it, and it's also super comfortable. But it's blue,
and my walls are blue. A little much. Ross says I'm not allowed to
paint yet, since we've only lived here for a year.
Yep! That's right! James has landed a spot on Ethan's rear-end.
I would say he's 95% potty-trained. It was not quite as big of a deal
as I thought it would be. I got some good advice from
my sister-in-law and just put him in underwear
and braced myself. It took a few days, but now we are there.

We had a lot of fun at the Old Shawnee Days carnival a couple of weeks ago. It was super HOT and Humid-- felt like the middle of August. It had been a long time since I had been on a 'scary' ride so I was pretty excited to try out the Ali Baba. Thanks to Becky for snapping some pictures while we were on it! (She took the photos on the bottom left and the top right.)
I love summer!
