Flowers for Dad, Smiles for Mommy, and a Snake on the Sidewalk

The weekend of August 28th, we celebrated Mark's Dad's 60th birthday. It was quite a party and everyone in the family pitched in to make it extra special. Our job was to make a slide show DVD of Dad's life to date, bring flower arrangements, and a chocolate fountain with all the dipping goodies! Unfortunately I failed to take any pictures while we were there, but I've posted some of the arrangements I made. Mom and Dad are currently in Alaska on a cruise... Dad is probably drinking his Beringer White Zin and Mom her Diet Coke as they sail into the Northern Lights. That's how you turn 60! :)

Ethan's latest news is that he has started sitting up on his own. We need to start thinking about baby proofing the house as he is well on his way to being mobile. Yikes! He can even stand on his own, although our saving grace is that he still has terrible balance! He is still a smiley, bouncy boy and growing more and more fun everyday!

One final update... our neighbors found a rattlesnake on their sidewalk and called the Fire Department. They found that it was dead upon closer investigation. Dead or alive, I keep my distance! Here is a picture of the firemen reinacting the scene (of what could have been):


Just because I love these boys!
