Little Walks

I took this photo of Sean at the Tempe Beach Marina yesterday. He was at the top of a little . grassy hill. Maggie and Sean were rolling down it. Today we walked to Hole in the Rock. It was chilly (60 degrees) and sprinkling. We have had about 2 weeks of weather in the 70's, and while that may sound great to those of you in the cold, it is rather boring to be always HOT! I'm enjoying the "winter" weather of today and hopefully all this week. Here are a few pictures from our hike. We took a picnic lunch.

Max is sprouting teeth!

Max is 8.5 months old now and is getting his first two teeth. Poor baby has had a couple of rough days and nights but he seems to be cheering up now. One tooth has broken the gums and the other is about even, ready to sprout any day. Both are on the bottom. Max is also sitting very well by himself. I don't feel like I need to place a pillow behind him, but he doesn't know how to sit himself up yet. He tends to fall forward onto his hands and knees, and then onto his tummy. He is still a long way from crawling. So big and heavy, like Sean was, I think it will be another few months before we see some action. However, he can scootch himself across the floor slowly on his tummy. Sean has been very gentle with him lately but still gets urges to grab Max's face, so we have to be careful when they are in close proximatey.

Girl Scout Cookies Anyone?

Maggie wants to ask if you would like to buy some girl scout cookies from her. Orders are due next Monday (1/18). Send me an email if you'd like me to sign you up.

(Yes, Sean is trying to pose like Maggie. He was being very serious. I almost laughed.) Here is Sean playing with the "Wok and Roll". He likes to sort all the pieces by color.

Here is Glen and Maggie playing chess.

Here is Maxwell helping me make dinner.

Not much going on. Just though I'd post a few pictures.

Lots of walks

The weather has been beautiful. We've been taking lots of walks. Max loves it.

Sean loves any excuse to ride his tricycle. Glen attached a small rake to make getting up those hills around the back of the zoo more do-able.

Maggie has been on her bike too, and she doesn't want to stop for pictures. Can you see the bighorn sheep against the sky?
