Anyway, I hope to post more often and to share a few more of the things I've been keeping busy with lately. The second trimester nesting is in full effect and we're in the middle of cleaning/clearing out our garage for good. We hope to be able to park a car in there one day soon, and find some of the things we're going to need again when the Littlest Senge arrives in December. In the meantime, let me play catch up with some photos from the last month or so.
In June, we headed up to Livermore for the annual Rodeo Parade. It is a delightful small town affair and we thought Alice would really enjoy all the horses and marching bands. And it was a great excuse to see our Bay Area friends.
We claimed a stretch of sidewalk an hour or so before the parade, so we could save seats for our friends. Alice had a great time running around in the street, and visiting the horses who were waiting to begin the parade. She was excited to get a sticker from a police officer who rolled by before the parade.
When our friends arrived, Alice had fun running around with Eli. They shared toys and ran around, keeping themselves amused until we settled down for the parade.
Alice met that little horse before the parade, and even kissed his nose. I didn't get a shot of that, because I was busy making sure the horse didn't eat her face. I did get a shot of her own little horse giving this guy a kiss on the nose.
After the parade, we all headed back to my parents house to hang out with our friends. Alice got to open some more birthday presents, and got some very fun things that are her new favorite things. Like this super sweet gray rabbit, which she looooves.

|Helping Grandma cook, and having some laughs.|

|Listening to the teacher.|
|Ready to dive in!|
|Saying "hello" to a little lizard.|
|Alice had to lay down to get a better look at the Gray's Monitor Lizard.|
My parents came down for a visit and Alice had a great time helping Grandpa sweep up all the pine needles. Jon's parents got her a little broom of her very own and she kept herself busy messing up all of Grandpa's piles of dirt.
