Life without internet sucks...



So I shouldn't complain too loudly since, well, I don't actually pay for internet service. Which is a sweet deal I know. Somebody in our apartment complex has an open wireless connection. The problem is, when it goes down, I have absolutely no one to complain to! Without internet I'm basically helpless. I can't pay our bills, I have no idea how much money we have in the bank, my church calling responsibilities are impossible to complete, and I have one less way to waste time!
But anyway, it's back up and life is just a little happier.

Jon is out of town most of this month in Colorado finishing up some projects which means long nights by myself... blah. I have the hardest time getting anything productive done when he is gone during the week. I can't help but think, 'yeah I could finish cleaning this right now, but who would notice?'

Scarlet is doing well, getting over her first cold. I am so sick of fighting her down to use to boogie nose sucker thing. They're basically pointless. By the time I get it all sucked out, she is crying so hard that her nose has filled itself with snot again. I've started giving her baths with the baby vapor soap and I let Jon be in charge of bath time the other night and these are the pictures I found on the camera the next day...




I'm gonna backtrack a bit because I missed one of my big events of the summer cause I didn't have the pictures on my computer yet. Jon's family had their first reunion this summer. Jon is the 4th of 5 kids and there are now 6 grandkids. We went to Shelter Cove, CA which is near Eugene. It's a beach town... but it's more of a Washington beach town. Not a Newport beach town. And honestly, at times it was downright frightening. We found out after we got there that 5... count em 5... adults had drowned in the ocean the week before we arrived. We were on constant lookout for sneaker waves, rip tides, oh yes and bears. Quite the relaxing vacation spot for 6 kids under the age of 8.


Overdramatics aside, we had a great time. Here are some my favorite pictures of the occassion.

Some of my adorable nieces and nephew



The whole family pic...



And if you haven't seen it in person, Scarlet's most daring trick. I love the first one... the second scared the bee-geeses out of me so I set down the camera and yelled at Jon.
Aah! My internet keeps cutting out. I'm gonna post this before I lose it.

oh man I think I would have freaked out at that last picture too! I freak out when David just does that while she is sitting on her hand. I better make sure he doesn't see these pictures so he doesn't get any ideas!!!haha!!! And I agree it stinks when husbands are gone!

My dad always did that...Sometimes you just have got to let dad's do tricks with their kids. I don' know why...but you just do.

Scarlett is such a pretty baby and I love the pictures of her. It's so funny because I always see so many dads do that trick with their babies. It would scare me to death, yet the babies seem to like it!
