Block Party, Adler and Piggies

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. We've been going about our business, waiting for our LSC paperwork (42 days and counting) and enjoying the summer. Shopping for a little girl has been great fun. I have discovered some great little girl clothes at garage sales, and Drama Queen and I were sad to see that IKEA no longer sells cribs.

Our block does a great party every year, and this year we were actually in town to enjoy it. The local fire department came out and soaked the kids, and let my little one crawl around in the fire truck and ask questions to his heart's content. We had friends over, and even Drama Queen got into the spirit and painted some faces.

The neighbors put up a sheet and showed Despicable Me, complete with lemonade and popcorn. Even Gracie enjoyed it.

Yesterday I took advantage of the slow days with The Artist away at camp and took Z-Man to his much-loved Planetarium for some one-on-one time. He sure loves space!

And finally, I want to introduce our newest family members! Meet Luca and Lisa, our guinea pigs:

One thing I didn't realize when I committed to taking these pigs is how big a cage they would need. But they are sweethearts, and we've found a good place to put it.

And that's what's going on here. Life is always an adventure...
