Lydia at 6 months

The last six months really have flown by! I can't believe Lydia is almost 7 months now. She's growing and learning new things every day. Her sweet smile never ceases to melt my heart. Here are just a few of pictures I've taken the past couple of weeks. It was hard to limit it to just these few, so maybe I'll post more of them later.

Happy Birthday!

Yesterday was Rusty's 39th birthday (rumor has it it's the last one he will publicly celebrate). On Wednesday, his mom, Uncle Harold and Aunt Theresa came over to help celebrate. It was Harold's birthday earlier that week and well, Theresa's was sometime earlier so we celebrated their birthdays as well. Oh yeah, and I bowled a 227 on Wii Bowling!

Nearly 7 going on 14

After I took these pictures I nearly bawled my eyes out. Can you believe Cade is going to be 7 next month??? He looks so grown up. To quote Maria from The Sound of Music, " somewhere in my youth or childhood I must have done something good" to deserve such a wonderful little boy! Rusty and I are so lucky to be Cade's parents.

Dinner with the Llamas

By the looks of it, I'd guess someone just passed gas. And I wouldn't necessarily bet on any of the llamas!

Boy, these two are going to leave a trail of broken hearts wherever they go!

Crikey! 'Ave a look at this bloke.

Riley C., the brown bear hunter.

A couple of Thursdays ago, we attended an annual dinner hosted by one of the gals in my church group. She lives on a farm west of town and she has llamas! Cade asked his good pal, Riley, to go with him and those two had a blast. They went for an "adventure" with Rusty on the property. Along with the llamas, they saw horses, a donkey, a pond full of fish, dogs and a couple of out of commission golf carts (imagine Cade's disappointment!). On the walk back to the house, they encountered some interesting "pebbles" and Riley got up close to investigate. A little to close, really. It wasn't until he picked up said pebbles that they all realized it was llama scat. Thank goodness we had already eaten!
