Father's Day Weekend

To reward Alex for being such a wonderful father, we loaded up his bike with a hundred pounds of camping gear and made him tote it 26 miles across western Michigan to a secluded campsite. He loved it.
We were accompanied by Abby's second mommy and daddy...

...And her brother-in-practice.

The kids got to watch a family fishing off the dock. They were in awe.

Abby enjoyed having a view from the potty.
Plus they got to look for snails, spiders, and fish.
We had fun.

I can't wait to celebrate next Father's Day.

The Most Fun Ever

Grandma and Grandpa Mettler. Seriously.


Infatuated With Benji

The pictures speak for themselves.

ACK! Falling behind!!

Man, I've got pictures coming out my ears and I haven't had a chance to post anything!

Let's start with Potty Training. We decided that Abby was ready to ditch her diapers and she has been potty training for about a month now. She's doing really well! We went with the "Naked and $75" method. The idea is that you let your kid run around naked and then after they're trained you pay $75 to have your carpet cleaned. It sounded perfect for us since A) she runs around naked anyway, and B) we have very little carpeting. Man she's growing up fast.

I know its sort of distasteful to post pictures of someone on the pot, but come on, this is adorable!

Just Cute


I take a lot of photos of Abby. And I can never pick which ones are best--they're all cute because she's cute! Usually I narrow it down to three. And then post all three. So here are a few "threes."
