Waterfight At Bryce's House

Emily has grown quite fond of our neighbor boy Bryce. I think she has a little crush on him since she bear hugs the poor kid.

They invited us over for a water fight. Emily just stood in the middle of the chaos, sucking on a water toy. Little did I know she'd swallowed some of the water balloon remnants. Found that out a day later.

Tanya, Bryce's mom was getting more wet than any of the kids. I also got a nice water shot to the butt.

First Mariner's Game

Memorial Day weekend, Sunday Mariners game. We knew this was going to be interesting since she cannot sit still for more than 2 minutes. We saw the first pitch, then had to walk around the ball park for the next 5 innings until she had enough.

She loves to clap.

It was a beautiful day

Griffey hit a home run in the first inning, which we missed, but we picked up this sweet t-shirt for her anyway.

Popper Mania

This is Emily's favorite toy of the day. She rams the poor dogs with it or she just runs through the house at top speed. I am not sure that toy was meant to handle these kinds of speeds. At the end she has to take a rest. Enjoy.

Yard Helper

Emily is always climbing on something

Noble steed Murphy, he keeps his distance.

Mowing the lawn, look at Dave's new lights he just installed.

Soaking in the tub

Emily has learned to float on her back in the tub.

Random Updates

We're doing good. I have been really busy with work and so has Dave. Emily is getting tons of teeth and learning a lot each day. One of the cuter things she has learned is to say is "Night night," when she wants to go to sleep and goes into her room and drags out her blanket.

Emily's 15 month check-up is 6/2 and her first dentist appt is 6/4.

I just wrapped up my spring season of softball. We wont play again until fall because everyone is out of town on and off throughout the summer. It was fun getting out and running around in the beautiful weather, but we didn't make the playoffs so that was a bummer.

Dave's been breaking his back in the yard and getting things ready for our remodel which is scheduled for Mid-June. We need to take some before and after pictures. We have almost all of our new furniture for our bedroom, finally we have our own stuff like real grown ups.

We rescheduled our vacation for Kauai in December and we're still really looking forward to our trip. This will be our first family vacation ever, first vacation for Dave and Me since we we drove to San Francisco in July of 2005, really really overdue, that is over 4 years without a vacation, if you're counting. I can't wait to see Emily running on the beach.

Summer's here, thank goodness. I have 2 baby showers coming up, so more playmates for Emily. Dane is graduating from Oregon, heading to Law School. Can't wait to see our friends from San Fran over the 4th of July weekend. Fun times ahead.

Dave and I saw a twister outside our back door on Friday night. It was so windy this night, but really warm. The pictures are terrible, my poor camera was out of juice, but I managed to take these two. It was a dust devil according to Dave, but I know a twister when I see one. I thought the Cairn Terrier, Jasmine was going off to Oz.

Pool time

We broke out the pool on Friday. It was really warm, almost 80.

She likes to squirt herself in the mouth.

Karate kid.

Ruffle butt.

Waving hi. Nice knees.
