i'm a bad blogger

this morning ryan said, "when are you ever going to post something new on our blog?" hmmm...i guess that was a subltle hint that i've not been the best at blogging as of late, so here goes...
may has been busy!
we celebrated our moms...compare this with last year...

we went swimming...twice. leah is a fish. we think she doesn't walk or crawl because she just wants to swim. for a great post about one our our pool parties, click here. (blog credit: cheryl) leah's hair dries curly...i love it! and at the aforementioned pool party, she discovered strawberries. mmm...

we ran a race (a crazy hilly 10k)...climbing about 850 feet TWICE in 6.2 miles. for a complete recap, click here. (blog credit: lindsey) ryan got 2nd place in his age division (defending his 3rd place title from last year)!!

we ate dirt. well, leah did. usually when we go get the mail, i let her play with the junk mail. but, one day we got no junk mail and i got a great letter from my mom that took me awhile to read, so leah decided to eat the dirt/rocks/flowers instead. oops! it's just protein, right?

we played with jack.

we had dad do our hair.


we tried to take our clothes off because it's been so blasted HOT here lately (100+ degrees) and we don't have air conditioning.


we tried on mommy's hat.


we grew 3 more teeth (5 total)...no pictures...sorry!

we discovered our shadows...

We would have loved to see you and Leah when you were here. I understand how it is with family vacations, so busy. I love Leah's cheeks! My Lyndsey had those kissable cheeks too. Your hair looks great!

You are such a cute mom, Maren! We are complaining about no air conditioning in 80 degree weather. I don't know how you can survive the heat! Hope you can escape the extreme hot weather for the Smith reunion - I'd love to see you and your cute family in person. It's been too long!

Long time no see, Ryan ;) Actually, I think it's really been about 10 years since I've seen you or anyone else that frequented Chris' house...

Do you really have a kid?!??!

Priceless pics!! You're so creative. Luckily I get to see you often enough to hear the updates. I think you're fine at blogging though. Every day seems excessive. I seem to go in phases.

No joke, Maren! Those are some awesome arms! Leah is pretty cute, too, but seriously--your arms are amazing!
