Lazy Sunday Afternoons

Gotta love them! It was hot, hOT, HOT! today. Still the kids and I went outside before dinner just to bask in the shade of our lovely tree. Amelia looked so gorgeous to me in her teal and green dress that my camera was in hand before you could say "photo." I had her pose on my garden box to show how tall my tomatoes are growing. The LOVE this hot weather. We are eating a ton of chard, green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, and some beets. Hurry up tomatoes! Everett is doing much better holding up his head. He is quite the talker now. This afternoon was one of those stolen moments that makes life a heaven on Earth.

**Phillip went on a rampage after Miekka left. He pooped on the carpet: sneakily removed his diaper and pooped when he was only a couple feet away, his bum was hidden by the couch. Then he climbed onto the butcher block and stuffed my microwave with sprinkle bottles, smeared shortening everywhere, and ate an entire package of gum. That feat took about 3 minutes, while I nursed the baby then realized it was rather quiet. He is lightening fast and super determined.
