The Trick

Gwen started rolling over today. She did it a lot. Mostly it was back to tummy, but a few of her tricks were front to back. Here is a sequence of photos documenting Gwen rolling precariously on the couch. (Don't worry my foot was totally ready to catch her if she started slipping off the edge...)

I should note that she is wearing her Easter dress from the Dollar Store. It shrank a little in the wash, so it is a summer shirt now. I kinda forgot to blog about Easter. Maybe I'll do that soon. I need to clean my house first.

Jam Session

I'll tell you two of the best things about living close to my sisters-in-law: they are motivated and they are inclusive. When they are doing something awesome like having lunch or making strawberry jam I am invited. It is the best, because I would probably never do these things on my own.

Today we made strawberry freezer jam at Sara's house. I kind of wish I took pictures of all of us in Sara's cute aprons, but I only got a shot of the massive amounts of jam we made. I personally walked away with 24 jars. Yes, I have tasted it. Yes, it is delicious.

Afterward we had a joint birthday lunch for Amy and Rachel at an amazing restaurant called Joe's Farm Grill. (This is one of the first eateries Dan and I experienced in AZ. I should probably do an extra blog entry about how awesome it is.) Truth be told it was Amy's 5th birthday lunch or something, but nobody is complaining. We love to get together. And Rachel needed one anyway.

I missed my zumba class at the gym, but I suppose that is alright every once in a while.

April 1st

Today is April Fools day. This is my least favorite "holiday." I celebrated by asking Gwen if she had been eating rainclouds. I know that has nothing to do with anything, but that is the closest I got to a joke.
