Not this......










Or these.......




She's 3 months here....I messed up and forgot to do a "sign" picture


















Or even these.......
















But maybe it looks something like this......










Happy Birthday, Abby!

Some Fun in the Sun.......

We all had a big play date outside yesterday since Dave and I both had a few hours off together. Abby had so much fun outside. At the end of it all, she had dirt in her hair, black shoes, and a hole in her pants. But how cute is she??

Walk Like an Egyptian II....

I think these show how she's really taking off in the past few days....

And can I just say I'm embarrassed to say how long it took me to figure out how to spell Egyptian...and it still doesn't look right?!?!?

Lil' Ladybug

I know I posted a picture of Abby in her raincoat a few posts ago, but she looked so darn cute when she wore it on Friday, I just had to post a couple more. Enjoy!!

Proof!

Although my almost ONE YEAR OLD daughter refuses to hold her own bottle, a cup is doable. But only if she thinks you're not looking.

California Dreamin'

As many of you know, I took a trip to Redondo Beach, California, last week for Chief Camp. Three others from our program went with me, and we had a great time. The weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful (although the water was COLD!), and on St. Patty's Day, the beer was green. Although it was hard to be away from Abby and Dave for that long, they survived just fine without me, and it made our reunion that much sweeter. Here's a few pictures from our trip.
From the pier across from our hotel:






The beach just down from our hotel. Not the white sands of Florida, but it'll do.




The view from my hotel room:



The next ones are from our cheesy LA tour that we all took. We figure we might not ever make it the west coast again, so we might as well see the sights.
My friends Elisa and Lisa, on the tour bus with the crazy drunk driver:









At the Chinese Theater:












At the mall/ theater where the Oscars are held:


Universal City at Universal Studios:

I was SOOOO excited by this store:

I actually did learn some things about myself, group dynamics, and managing groups at the conference too. Maybe something will come in handy next year!!
