Watermelon and water

Here are a few cute pictures of two of my favorite people enjoying a little snack. Hannah loves food that tastes good and is easy for her to feed herself. Don't mind the half eaten piece of watermelon sitting in the bowl...I'm sure she's planning on getting back to that one later.They are always watching...I don't know where she learns to eat her food so quickly!?Good food always seems to be the messiest. It must make it taste better!Also wanted to let everybody know that we are doing fine even though about the entire state of Iowa is dealing with flooding. It is no wonder...usually in June we get about an inch and a half of rain total...as of a few days ago we have had over 8 inches of rain in June alone. And it is raining again today and predicted for tomorrow as well. It has been a crazy spring...lots of tornado warnnings/huge thunderstorms, etc. Luckily we have made it through it all with no water leaking into our basement (a common problem around here) and no flooding right in Carroll. This is mostly because there is no river that goes through town like many other places. This whole rain thing is new to me (growing up in AZ and CO) but extremes of any type of weather create problems. I'm just grateful that we are all safe and sound and I hope that this rain will slow down soon! It has kept the weather cooler, which has been nice while I'm pregnant, but little Hannah wants to play outside, too!

These pictures are great! Way cute! And I am glad you updated us with how you are doing in Carroll. We have been wondering about you! Hope the weather warms up for you soon so Hannah can go out and play! We miss you guys...

glad you are all ok.
we have been enjoying watermelon too, so yummy and so messy!
we have had a smooth transition with Shelby, and the new baby. We have tried extra hard to make sure she has some individual attention from each of us. And Sterling gave her a father's blessing the night before we went in to be induced. I think those are the biggest helpers. Good luck!

thanks for the update, and glad that Shelby is such a great big sister. I love the idea of a father's blessing, why didn't I think of that sooner!?
