Flying Gwen

There's nothing like daddy throwing me up in the air.

What is summer without a little hose play?

We frequently eat dinner out on our front porch to escape the heat in our house, you know, trying to save money not turning on the AC. We usually put Gwen in her exersaucer while we eat but this night she was particularly fussy. Dad always has a unique way of calming her down or keeping her entertained. He is always trying new things. This time I came out with my dinner to find my little Gwenie getting soaked in her clothes on the ground with the hose. At first, I was griping about her on the dirty ground, then about her being in her clothes, but after I saw how much fun she was having, I couldn't gripe anymore. This kid is fearless. She had a blast. It kept her busy with fun the whole dinner and then some.

The Great Park

The Great Park Balloon. We went up in this hot air balloon as a family. Yes, even Gwen! About 300ft in the air tethered to a cable. It normally goes just above 400ft but we had to stay lower because of the winds, fine by me. The best part about the whole thing was that it was FREE!

Swing Time!!!

Gwen is 7 1/2 months old now. She loves being outside. We go for walks almost everyday. One day we stopped by the park and put her in the baby swing and she loved it. I just can't get enough of that smile!
