Anna had Kevin over for a play date! We found out that Anna really needs to work on her sharing skills. Sorry Kevin! Thank goodness, when there were no toys to compete for (for Anna to take from Kevin) and there was just space to run around, inside and out, they had a great time together. Lunch was pretty fun too -- they were cute mimicking each other's sounds and words back and forth.

Happy Fall everyone! Here are some pictures from HAWAII! Also here are some pictures from our visit with Billy in Los Angeles. Our trip was so much fun, and now we are having so much fun being back home! Today we went to Patterson's Farm where Anna, David, and Erika all had a ball! Last week we went to the Nature Center with Tyler and Joey, and lately we have been frequenting Squire's Castle in North Chagrin Metroparks.
Anna has also been having a blast playing with her cousins, Seppie, Letta, and Don-Do. Hopefully I will link a video here soon of when she first sees them -- it is totally adorable! - she gets incredibly happy and excited. Thank goodness we did finally catch one of those moments on video because you never know when things like that just morph into some other cute habit.
to our hiking adventure that we thought might be leading us to a crazy man's cave.
Behind us is Baby Bear.
and this place was the grand finale!
...perhaps some underwater photos will be posted later.

Anna really enjoyed the Marview Street Party (there are a few Geneva photos in there too). She marched in a parade dressed up as Dora the Explorer and even won a prize (we won't tell her that she was the only child in the under six category)! She rode on the Max Wagon Train! Max was the puppy Anna met a few months ago (you may remember the video ~ she was a little scared), and now she and Max are pals even though he now weighs maybe 6x her weight (150 pounds)!! She proudly wore her sheriff's badge even though sitting in the police car was pretty frightening. She ate all kinds of yummy treats all night too! Then we came home to find Mike still painting the deck, and he and I kept on working out there until almost 2am! Happily, our first project of power-washing and painting the deck is complete!

We are happy to be back from a fantastic trip (Mom and Dad to Maui and LA, and Anna to stay with her grandparents) and are excited to settle into fall! Later you'll hear about our adventures (dolphins, waterfalls, lava rocks!!), but first we have to tend to some backlogged posts! Stay tuned because this time I promise there will be something to see!
PS- now there are several posts for August and September!
Anna was 18 months old today! She seems so much older than just a week or so ago! She is chatting and eating up a storm, loving her letters and clothing (pants, socks, etc), as well as getting crazy excited whenever there is any child near by, especially Seppe, Letta, and Do-o-nicie-o. She's 33 inches tall, 25 pounds, has a big head, and 10 big teeth! Some new words: airplane, abc, "happy birth-day Daddy", yeah/yes (to answer questions - so cute!), plate, ring, watch, Anna's shoes, Mommy's jeans, Grandma's shirt, Daddy's socks, di-aper, peas (please)... Oh, what a joy and blessing from God! Happy October!
