Daniel attended his first baseball game. (Jill and I were there, too. It was Jill's third baseball game.) It was a Florence Freedom game instead of a Reds game, so we got to sit really close to the field! (This picture displays well the dark blue ring in Daniel's eyes. Isn't that cool? I know all eyes are darker on the outside, but I think his ring is really prominent.)
Jill has enjoyed a lot of play dates with a lot of her friends this month. Here are a few tastes.
Okay, Daniel got to have some play dates, too. A lot of Jill's friends have little siblings now. :)
We spent a lot of time with the family that Jill wishes she were born into. (Kidding.) (Maybe . . . ?)
We drove up to Michigan, and I got to be there with my brother to celebrate his 30th birthday! Happy birthday, Danny!
My nieces Emily and Tabitha
Jill, sporting Bunny's ravishing pink straw hat.
We met my dad at his office one day and then ate lunch at a really beautiful park.
Daniel had chicken pox all over. He still does. He hasn't been contagious for about two weeks now though. Apparently it just takes a really long time for all the pox (poxes?) to fade. Jill got a very, very mild case. We're assuming the vaccine she had around 12 months is what helped hers be so mild. Daniel bore the chicken pox very well. As far as I know, he didn't share it with anyone other than his sister. We have no idea where he picked it up.
Jill had a week with both of her grandmas around, and one of the activities was King's Island. Jill tells me very often now that she needs to go back again.
To top off the month, my grandmother was able to come for a visit as well. She lives in Texas, so we don't get to see her too often!
And to make things really exciting (because that's how we like it!) Jeffrey was hit by a driver who fled the scene and both of our cats got lost outside this month. We managed to find both of them, Chloe was huddled under a tarp and Cosmo was inside of a storm drain. Sigh. They were both pretty terrified. Scaredy cats! (Cosmo was missing for over a day and a half. I was getting really worried about him.)
(Jeffrey was not injured. The car was though. $3,200 worth of injuries. Yay for insurance!)
