First Boat Ride

We went to Marion Lake today. Alex got his first ride in Grandma and Grandpa's boat!

Here he is....all ready to hit the water...

He wasn't so sure of his life jacket, but seemed to get used to it.

Grandma and Alex....enjoying the ride.

Here he is....sound asleep as we flew around the lake. It just looks like I am pushing his head down....really just holding his hat on, to keep the sun out of his eyes. Overall, he seemed to like the boat. He really just wanted to get in and swim. But not if it required his head to get wet....we are still working on that.

Watering Flowers

Despite my lack of gardening skills, Alex and I planted a few flowers this year. So far, they look pretty good. Alex likes to play in the dirt and water so much I don't think he would let me forget to water them. He tries to help, as you can see. Usually just a little water gets onto the flowers. Then, he is too busy playing with the watering can and faucet. Little boys and magnets.

New House Pics...Finally

Here are some pictures of my new house: 4973 N. Hedgerow, Wichita KS 67220. It is actually still in Bel Aire, but you can use Wichita as the is easier to spell and my mail still gets to me.

I just realized that I have been in it 2 months now! I guess that means I can't use the "i just moved in" excuse for not having any decorations on the walls yet. Although, I have completed a few small projects. I painted the 2 bathrooms upstairs. I also updated hardware and light fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen. Dad helped me hang the new kitchen lights, and half a dozen other things around the house. Thanks Dad! are a few outside pictures. The front, back and view of the back yard.

Alex Pics

I haven't posted any in a while, so here are some recent pictures of Alex. He is running everywhere and having a blast outside this summer. He also still loves to you can see! Yes, that first picture is a combination of pasta sauce AND gravy. Not a typical meal at my house, but it was leftover night and he wanted to try everything. He is also starting to get some hair. When it is humid, he gets a strip of curls down the middle. It is so cute. Enjoy!
