(i dont think i have ever mentioned this but sophia does not call me mom or mommy but momma. i thought it was a phase. it started a few months ago. i think it is so cute and i wonder how long it will last. she sounds like a little country bumpkin. it's awesome.)

here we are just being silly.

we were waiting to head on out to a blueberry festival with friends.

it was the hottest day ever.

let's just say the blueberry festival was cut short and we headed to a friends pool instead. thanks sheila!

i can't believe it has been so long since i last posted!

how is it august 16th already?

i have about a million pictures since i last posted. it is a bit daunting trying to decide what pictures to post so im pretty sure you will be getting a picture smorgasbord pretty soon.

we have been busy catching up with friends, trying to keep cool, visiting with my sister, keeping the garden watered and anxiously awaiting my parents return home.

the summer is zooming by us.

i am excited for fall and all that it brings.

i am craving routine and i know with the start of sophia's pre-school and hopefully dance school we will soon have one. what a funny thing to crave right? we are so lucky to do what we want when we want.

i have started to walk/jog every morning and my energy is starting to return. i was feeling pretty zapped on energy. to keep up with sophia i need my energy. it is so easy for me to get into bad habits which cause low energy. now that i am older and my priorities are different all i care about is being healthy for sophia. i don't worry about how i look it is all about how i feel. i have given up my beloved diet pepsi. sara did you just fall on the floor? i feel so much better just doing that. water with lemon is my new best friend. i love it.

we have friends from calgary coming for a visit this weekend. i am so excited to see them!

we also will be heading to kimberley at the end of the month. his lola (that is grandma in tagalog) is visiting from the philipines. sophia is very excited to meet her great grandma. this will probably be the only time she gets to meet her. sandy and aaron and baby jada will be there too along with chris' uncles from california. it is going to be a great and special time!

also if you have a sec check out our crab pot party on my sisters blog it was such a fun night and mmm mmm goood!!

Pretty twin girls you are! So cute Laura!!! I wonder where Sophia picked up "momma"? That's what Megan calls me too. I love it. You're closer but still so far away! Love you. Aunt Sandy
