So we walked an hour in, and came upon a natural spring. It was kinda neat - there was a well built around it, and you could see bubbles coming up from the sand. All around was beautiful bright green bamboo!
As we were headed back, Haley Grace and I were in the front - Jeff says "hey look!" - we turn back, and there right beside the little path was a snake! It was big, but didn't look harmful. Why didn't we see it? From one of our last little adventures, I learned to watch my foot path, as I stepped on a big bad snake with out noticing. So now I watch my feet, but this was just out of my sight path. Haley wanted to mess with it to watch it move, oh the little lessons.

Below: Extends with 2 leafs, to fit up to 12 people!!!
So for years I have dreamed about what our life would be like when our kids were older. Friday night pizza night is one of those dreams, but to go with that, I dream of having lots of kids fill my house at any given time, and hope that our children feel comfortable to welcome their friends over for dinner whenever. Well, if we have 3 or 4 kids, and they each had a friend or two, and Jeff and I - that would be a LOT of people eating dinner at once. ... This week, my love made a dream come true for me! We bought a table for our dining room - it seats TWELVE people!!! YAY for Pottery Barn Outlet sales!!!! We got the deal of deals - I'd been eyeing a table that I loved, but being as it was $1700 just for the table I quickly forgot about it. But then it showed up at the outlet for $850!! Cha-Ching! oh but wait - I had a gift card for $100! Oh and ... it was on sale for another 25% off!!!! WOO HOO!!! We only paid $596 for a $1700 table!! Now, tell me that is not an amazing deal!? :) But now, we need chairs - so those will wait til I can find them for a good deal too!! Dinner anyone?

Well, Caitlin is now 8 weeks old!!! WOW! I can't believe it's been 8 weeks already! She is growing so much - she's 11 lbs now! (as you can tell her little cheeks and chin are quite chubby!) She' just started smiling at us - I actually heard her laugh the other day. :) She has become quite the amazing sleeper! She's been sleeping for 10/11 hours at night - eating at 10, and going right back to sleep - sleeping til 8/9 in the morning. I still keep thinking I should wake her up cause newborns shouldn't sleep that much, right? She continues to be fairly happy most of the time, only when she needs to poop does she get fussy. So we go to the potty and she poops, the day gets much better.
On another note - Haley Grace should be starting homeschooling Sept 1. She's really going to K! I can't believe she's ready for K already!?!? She turns 5 in just 2 weeks! Oh she's growing up fast!
We finally got to go swimming this summer with some friends! I didn't realize that having a newborn meant you couldn't really go swimming. Caitlin can't be outside in the heat for too long, and she can't really sit out by the pool that easily while we play. But, our friend's parents have a pool, so it made having a baby there much easier, and it was shady.
