Catch up Posting!

I have lots of pictures that I haven't shared with you. Some from a couple of weeks ago and some from the last few days. I hope you enjoy!

Click on the pictures below for more pictures.

Lindsey and I went up to Brian and Janella's house for the day. It was just us four girls. Our daughters and Janella and me. It was scheduled way ahead of time due to our car situation for the two of us to spend the day at their house and to go swimming. It started out as a very cloudy cool day, but the sun finally came out much later. We had the pool 100% to ourselves, which Janella figured would be the case since the neighborhood seems to be mostly made up of working households including the mothers for the most part. We had fun and Lindsey got to experience her first big pool. She did good, but has a very healthy fear :)

Lindsey received an awesome gift last Saturday. Grandma and Grandpa Pitcher came and bought her a swing set. She absolutely loves it. We had a great day being together despite the horrible heat while the guys put the set together for about 3 hours or so.
We started the day out by going to Wal-Mart and getting the swing. Then we had an enjoyable luncheon/dinner at Johnny Carino's Italian restaurant. We then came home and the guys put the swing together. After the assembly of the swing, it was almost time for them to head home. We went to Graeters before they left town and had some very enjoyable ice cream. A very nice way to end our day. Thanks for coming, we very much enjoyed having you come over.
A Fun Day with G&G Pitcher 8-4-07
Last Saturday night I decided to curl Lindsey's hair, which I don't do very often. I tried my best to get a good picture of the front of her, but as you can tell, all I was able to get was some weird faces and the back of her. Before I could hardly take a breath her hair was going straight after we walked out the church doors into the horrible humidity. We had a farewell get together for a family that is leaving our church due to job change and as you can see Lindsey quickly turned into a rag-a-muffin with the hot weather. It was quite hilarious.
Sunday events 8-5-07
Monday night, Lindsey got a bad boo boo. She actually was burned when she fell and hit the hot iron that Grandma S. had just finished using. She is certainly a toughie though. We knew she was hurt, and she cried a little, but we didn't even know what had actually happened until an hour or so later when I saw it welted up on her face. My poor baby, I felt so sorry for her. She rubbed her little cheek and said, Hot! The top mark was gone completely by Tuesday morning, but the bottom one is much worse and has actually blistered and then partially broke some. I am doctoring it we neosporin and it seems to be helping. She hasn't complained any though and it didn't even seem to bother her when I gave her her bath.
Tuesday afternoon, I was swinging her in her swing outside for a few minutes and she fell asleep. I snapped this picture just a second too late when she woke up after having been asleep only a minute or two. I ended up taking her out of the swing, much her to great dismay and taking her into the cool house and putting her back to sleep. It has been so hot here and she certainly couldn't have taken that heat for her whole nap. She loves he swing though and was in it for a very long time.

Lindsey's boo boo

Well, that's all for now! I hope all of you feel "caught up"!

The pictures looked great. Ouch on the boo boo. She is growing so fast.

Enjoyed the update. I had been checking. I'm sorry about Lindsey's face. Hopefully it will heal without a mark.

Love you,

Looks like you have been busy as usual! Hope the face doesn't leave a scar! It is amazing how tough these little kiddies are!!! Mine get banged up all the time. Enjoyed seeing the pics of your in-laws. Looks like they have fun with Lindsey!

How exciting about the swingset! I love her little Sunday dress. It is so adorable.
