These aren't the best pics but it shows the kids at the new park downtown. It's pretty hard to get decent pics there without getting soaking wet yourself. Most of the pictures were taken back in July but the last 2 were taken Sunday afternoon. We went to eat lunch downtown with several other couples from church and then we all walked over to the fountain.

Trip is totally OBSESSED with Elmo and today I saw an Elmo costume in Trip's size at a consignment shop. Here's video of Trip trying on the costume. Ruby wanted to put on her Halloween costume too and I caught this great shot of her as Belle.

Recently Ruby has really gotten into eating raw baby carrots with light ranch dressing. Tonight, my pickier eater, Trip, decided he liked them too, probably thanks to Sissy's influence............ Oh my, as I'm typing this I look over at Ruby who's eating a cookie as a reward for eating her veggies tonight and she was dipping it into the ranch dressing. Ick! (By the way, the kids did get more for supper other than grapes, a piece of cheese, and raw carrots- that was what I gave them to munch on while the chicken pot pie cooled off.) Tomorrow we'll try raw broccoli with ranch. Wish me luck!

Ruby has always been into dressing up but more and more often she's wanting to wear dress-up clothes out in public. That's totally fine with me because I just love to see her be a child while I can- before she loses the innocence. It is so very cute and she got lots of oohs and aahs as to how beautiful she was during our errands to Dillard's and Wal-Mart today. Trip wanted to be in the picture too...... now I may have 2nd thoughts if Trip decides he wants to wear the princess shirt out in public.
Lately Ruby and Trip seem to be doing everything together as a pair. I guess because Trip is becoming more independent and not the tiny one that's waiting behind for mommy's help. Last night they were so cute standing together at the bathroom sink brushing their teeth that I had to try to sneak a pic. But, this was the best that I could get. At one point they were both grinning and laughing at each other in the mirror but, of course, they had stopped by the time I ran and got the camera.

Tonight while I was giving the kids a bath, Ruby asked me to take their picture. They were both so smiley and cooperative!! Why is it that they both decide to cooperate and let me take their picture when they're completely naked? Maybe this is the beginning of a new phase in picture taking and I'll start to get lots of shots of 2 happy smiling faces. Yippee!!

I took some brief video on my camera at the last day of Ruby's gymnastics camp. In the 1st video I was trying to capture Ruby doing her flip but the funny part is a kid poking Ruby in the face and then having a meltdown in the background. In the 2nd clip, Ruby bust on her face. How much are we paying for these classes?! =)

|Make a Smilebox scrapbook|
Tonight I got familiar with Smilebox- very cool, but, for the most part, too cutesy for me. Here are some pics from our trip to the Little Rock Zoo with the Day's in July.

I thought I'd welcome you back to school with some new blog posts. I spent a lot of tonight getting familiar with slide.com which is really fun and will make my posts much more interesting. I still have lots of blog catching up to do which I'll hopefully finish tomorrow. Hope this school year is a great one! Love you!!
Earlier in the summer we spent a couple of days at the Wright's (from church) fabulous pool. Ruby was such a diva laying out on the raft. Keeping up with 2 kids that can't swim, but that think they can, proved to be too much to handle so we joined the local community pool that has zero entry (like a beach). Hopefully next summer we can tackle the Wright's pool again.
