The Army Crawl

We tried a clean plate, but they wouldn't reach for it. I guess, they thought something was on they could eat. They grab at EVERYTHING we are eating!

Movin' and Groovin'

We are enjoying the warm weather in Arizona. Paul gets every other Friday off so we fill that weekend with grocery shopping and explorations of Tucson. This past weekend we took a drive up Mt. Lemmon. We didn't end up going to the top, but we stopped at a lookout and took some pictures. It was a little chilly and windy, but the view was beautiful. We're looking forward to the next off-Friday so we can go on a hike!

Aislee and Paul. There's a guy climbing the side of the mountain. We weren't going to get that close to the edge!

Olivia and Molly. It was getting pretty chilly. It was a lot warmer in the valley!

The girls are pretty mobile now. They're figuring out the whole crawling thing. They like to roll and reach for things, but they haven't quite gotten the "moving forward" part of crawling. The girls get pretty frustrated when they reach for things in front of them, but end up moving backwards.

We were waiting until we got swimsuits for the girls to do a bath time video. We got these from Old Navy. The first few minutes were pretty quiet. I think they were getting used to feel of the swim suits. They were a little unsure for a while. They weren't "free" the way they normally are in the tub.

Here are few videos and pictures of their latest endeavors.

All the new things we do...

Since we've been in Arizona, we've been trying some new things. Paul and I play tennis when he gets home from work at a local park and then take the girls for a walk or run on the path around soccer fields, softball fields, and a dog park. All the ladies we pass can't help but tell us what pretty babies we have. It's their little dimples in their chins (from their daddy!) that the ladies love so much. The girls are enjoying new sippy cups, rice cereal with apple sauce, and mashed potatoes. I've been trying some new dinner ideas. We still have chicken enchiladas, Swiss steak, salmon, and herb chicken. But, we've tried Ranch turkey burgers, meat(ground turkey) and potato pie, Ritz chicken casserole, and Parmesan crusted Tilapia. We also got new couches and finally got the crib for the girls. I still need to get bedding for the crib. Here are a few pictures of our happenings.

The new couches. They're "espresso".
