Surviving Summer

We have survived:
VBS: We set sail and went on a "Vast Voyage". Ali loved VBS again this year, and Josiah spent the week perfecting his dance moves and loving on (and napping on) Ida.

Buying a minivan. Yes, we are the proud owners of a minivan. We knew we needed one soon (three car seats just don't fit into a car), and we finally bit the bullet, said goodbye to Jed's car, and are falling in love with our van.

The great birthday/anniversary week: Jed and I both successfully survived another year and have now continued to enjoy each others company for six years! We went out to dinner and a 3D showing of Toy Story 3 to celebrate. And we ate cake...lots of cake.

Ali survived (and after her initial shyness really liked) her first dance class. We signed her up for a six week preschool "pre dance" dance class. They meet for 30 min on Saturday mornings and learn the basics of rhythm and stretching, as well as a few simple dance steps.

We are looking forward to our trip to Mt. Cross, where Jed is going to be the camp pastor for the week, and our trip to Wisconsin and Minnesota in August.

A few pictures to tide everyone over:

Jed eating cake on his birthday. Truth be told, this is still my cake. We decided to finish one cake before we made a second. We ate Jed's cake the next week.
My cake. Ali applied the frosting, which was about as thick as the cake itself. It was yummy!
Josiah wanted this ball so much he crawled under one of the cars....
his back looked like this when he was done. I was going to try to save the clothes, but I gave up.
Ali and Josiah both love to play games on the ipod touch. One day Ali crawled into Josiah's crib and we found them playing together. I love how Ali is cheering Josiah on.

Sorry, no good pictures of my belly yet. I think about, but it never gets done. Maybe in the next post. Have no fear, Abi and I are both doing well.
