Thanks goes out to Lisa, Rob, Diane and Dave for hosting/ throwing such a nice party. Emerson loved getting to pretend drive the boat, see the ducks, play with the dogs and hug Nathan!

The Sullivans made it to Ohio this summer and we joined them for a trip around the Cleveland Zoo (which I am personally disappointed in... very much so... and am soooo glad we did not get a membership this summer). Emerson loved impersonating the camels and we loved getting to meet Fia!
A couple of years ago my mother gave us these chairs and at one time I attempted to stain them both green. After a few summers of abuse and neglect, I decided to let Emerson have a hand at it. I gave her 2 different greens and a pink to work with. Within moments she decided to mix the paint colors together, which formed a sickly flesh color. Yet, here is the result; her chair is the one on the left, mine is the one to the right. Come next spring I will let her at it again and we will continue for as long as the chairs hold out!
Emerson has taken interest in the camera and since I will not let her touch it, I let her pick the items to be photographed. She dragged me around the house and carefully picked out things she loves... little people, her chalkboard, the tomatoes she grew, her dollhouse and her kitchen food.
