Beautiful Butterfly Bonnet

Myron's kind new co-workers blessed Betsy with this adorable hat last time we were in Ohio. She rediscovered it tonight and happily posed for a few pictures wearing her butterfly bonnet. :)

Fall Fun

Here's a few more pictures...I'm trying to keep up a little better with posting new pics so it doesn't take an hour to do it when I finally get around to it!

Betsy serving dinner in the diner car of her new pop-up train. Daddy found it for her at a garage sale!

All aboard!

Popping her head out of the roof for some al fresco dining.

I'm having fun...can you tell!!

Cute picture...if she was looking at me instead of the horses going by.

A little better...

The joy of autumn!

What a sweet smile

Family hayride

I love the orchard!


Enjoying kettle corn with Daddy and our new huge pumpkin.

This was yummy kettle corn...she's been talking about it ever since!

Checking out the world with my "in-auk-u-lers"

Our week in Ohio with Daddy

We spent a lovely week in Ohio with Daddy, househunting and exploring our soon-to-be new home. Except for one nasty bout with carsickness on Betsy's part and the interesting logistics of living in a two room hotel suite for 9 days, it was a good time...

Betsy catching a ride on our walk at Kehneer Park...a place I'm sure we'll go to a lot when we move. It's got a beautiful little stream and path through the woods.

Mommy and Betsy enjoying the warm fall day (it felt more like July than October)!

Walking in the leaves

Betsy's favorite thing...swinging!

Looking at the water with Daddy

My best college buddy Jodi and her cute little guy, Isaac, playing at the children's museum with us. (She used to live in Oregon and now lives in Lexington, KY so we'll now only be 2 hours apart!)

Brave Betsy going through the net tunnel high above the aquarium full of fish!

Betsy's favorite part of the museum...a room full of balls!

Jodi having fun too!

Isaac liked the ball room too.

Betsy enjoying the whirlpool tub!

Betsy's favorite part of the hotel room...a vase full of beads!

Betsy trying to feed the big horse in front of P.F. Changs.

Practicing with her chopsticks.

This is a little out of order...Betsy sleeping on the way home from the airport with the new teddy brought for her.

This is where Betsy slept.

I love this drawer! (But I didn't really sleep here...silly Mommy!)

Beads, glorious beads!!

Betsy Flies it's been two weeks since Betsy's first plane ride but here are some pictures... She did great during both rides, but going through security was another story. She started to go through the scanner that blows air on you looking for traces of explosives and then threw a fit when they questioned me about her sippy cup of water and eventually had to throw it out (as she screamed, WATER!!!) Not fun. are a few pics...

Waiting in the GR airport...eating some crackers.


OK...I'm all strapped in! Arms and everything!

This is fun!!!

Don't You?

Betsy and I are eating some Beef Lo Mein and Betsy said, "I love noodles!" I laughed and said, "You love noodles?" She looked at me and said, "Don't you?"

I love this kid.

Catching Up

With all the madness of house-hunting trips and keeping the house up for showings (of which we've had very few...sigh) I haven't kept up on my blog. Here are a bunch of pictures from the past few weeks...

Playdate with Devin. They were farming in the mulch with a truck and tractor that were Myron's when he was little. :)

Our dear friends who threw a wonderful farewell party for us. Sniff. It's going to be so hard to leave this gang.

Barefeet, sidewalk chalk, and Go, Dog, doesn't get much better than this.

Yep, when I was a young whipper-snapper...oh wait, I'm still a young whipper-snapper...

Jake at one month old

Is that a beautiful baby or what? My bro and his wife do good work! :)
