"And please bless us that we will all sleep well tonight. And that the cat will too."
What?! We don't have a cat and if I did I don't think I'd mention him in my prayers (I don't think our dog Wilson has ever made it in my prayers). Ben thought I had completely lost my mind.
Nay, I lost it a looooooong time ago.

Saturday was our first experience with our own Pinewood Derby Car. Our ward had a Pinewood Derby race for anyone and everyone to enter. So we did.
Jonas with the Avalanche.
The boys' favorite part of the evening probably - eating popsicles.
Wow, look how fast the Avalanche is going.The Avanlanche and the Babe. The girl in his arms is pretty cute too.

When Ben saw the picture, he said, "Wow, look how fast I was going." I guess he could tell because of that Huge Wake his boat was making in the water. He's pretty good out there on that sailboat.
While Ben was out in the water we were playing on the shore. The little boys had a fantastic time. Throwing rocks, of course. Why do boys (including Big,Big Boys) love to do this so much?
Splashing in the water. How fun.
And sitting in the water.
Emmy didn't have the best of times there, but did enjoy playing with the rocks a little bit.
Big girls may not cry. But little ones do.

Jonas' tie reads, "I love my Dad." And he does. He has this sweet, innocent, and simple love for his father. He loves his dad because his dad twirls him around and around in the backyard, because he pushes him high on the swings, because he wrestles with him, because he tickles his back, and because he gives him bites of his breakfast every morning.
(p.s. Another Happy Fathers' Day goes out to my own dad and Ben's dad. They are wonderful men and great examples to us - and especially to Ben. They support us no matter what - even when we were thinking of moving to Maine. :) We love you both!)

As in doggy. She says it just about all the time. As soon as she sees our dog Wilson she very excitedly says, "DogGhee." She also calls many other things by that name, too. Such as her stuffed animals, her baby dolls, and pretty much everything else.
She speaks it so cute, too. It is more like 2 words and is said very sweet and in a high voice. I'm still waiting for her to say, "Mama." But whatever. I know she loves me more than Wilson.
(p.s. the video isn't the best. pretty much whenever i am around emmy, she has to be right where i am. right where i am - like on me. it's cute. sometimes.)

It was the Father-Sons Camp-out with the church this Friday-Saturday. Here is what happened via a photo-log:
First things first - making sure the truck had enough juices here and there to get to the campsite.
Once there (not far from home really) they set up the tent. We love our tent!
The rest of the evening was spent making "funny faces," playing in the dirt and with the sticks, eating dinner, etc. They were able to find some "wildlife" and even got a chance to hold the wildlife:
Then came bedtime and then came wake-up time - too early for everyone, probably!
Here's Miles upone getting up. He "sucks" on his arm - but he really doesn't suck on it - just near it (he does it when tired). ? He's done it since he was 6 months old. And guess what!? Emmy does it too! And I hear the my sweet little nephew Everett does it too! Love it.Jonas looks pretty chipper. Even though he woke up after 4 times during the nite (luckily for short amounts of time).
The boys went on a little hike in the morning and had fun finding "pretty" flowers.
I was jealous I couldn't go with them. It looked like a lot of fun. More fun than picking up the house, vacuuming the house, wiping down all counter-tops, mopping the floor, cleaning our room, balancing the check-book, folding the laundry, watering the garden, watering the lawn, and cleaning/vacuuming our car. But don't worry, Emmy and I did have some fun too and were able to squeeze in a little of shopping (for Father's day), buying dinner (rather than making it - how fun!), jogging, and even going to the Farmer's Market and getting free Great Harvest bread.
So I think Da Boys and Da Girls had a good weekend. But it's good to be all together again.

I don't know what she is doing on the last picture - singing to her friend?
Another girly thing about Emmy Girl: her favorite animal noise is that of the kitty-cat - "meow." She loves it when I say it.
She is definitely my sugar and spice and everything nice.
