Vacation: Lilli

After much (ok, not really that much) internal debate about how I planned to post my vacation pictures, I decided to do them by subject instead of in order. Since Lilli had her preschool open house tonight and I'm feeling all gushy again about her growing up, she gets to go first.

Here's the big girl happy to be at Nana and Papa's house:

We clearly need to visit them more often because the last time we were there, Lilli looked like this:

Now she's all mature and stuff:

Not too grown up though, at the beach she preferred to spend her time in the tidal pools instead of the waves:

She loved every second she got to spend in the pool though:

"Arrrrrrrr", says the winky pirate girl:

"GRRRRRRR" says the feisty girl in the tunnel:

She loved just hanging out in this chair at Nana's taking in her share of the cable. :

Not sure why she looks kind of bummed here, she was showing me the picture she drew of herself and Elizabeth and their cousin Kai:

There was actually so much fun on vacation that she genuinely wore herself out:
Those cheeks are just begging for smoochies.

I can't believe the summer is almost over and that I will have two kiddos in school. I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it, but WHERE DOES THE TIME GO???


Speaking of not knowing where the time goes, can you believe that on the 25th of this month David and I will have been married for 10 years? It has gone fast. I realize that that the last 6 years have gone extra fast because of the girls, but the first four passed by in a blink too. I feel like this month we'll celebrate 10, and next month we'll be celebrating 20. Or 25. Sheesh.

Anyway, I thought for this month I might every now and then tell you some random David stories. Like tonight I thought I'd tell you the first place I met him. It was spring of 1998, I was a freshman in college, and I went with my boyfriend at the time, we'll call him B, to go to the Taylor Tower (a dorm on the OSU campus) "Coffee House", which was sort of a cross between a concert and a talent show. He and the band he was in, "Permanent Daylight" (primarily a Radiohead cover band, but with other good stuff mixed in) were performing, and the first thing I thought when I saw him play was OH MY GOOD GRAVY, WHO IS THE HOT DRUMMER????? He was introduced to me as "Guido" (long story), I couldn't stop staring at his arms (drumming does nice things to arms), and....

...and that was it.

WHAT? I was dating another guy after all!

13 years later he still has nice arms.

(He he, Guido.)
Lilli looks so grown up already! Sprite is excited as well about VPK. She keeps reminding me she needs her sleep since next week she'll be in VPK, yet blows her bedtime anyway. Sigh.
