Hiking (kind of)

We went for a little hike today! The weather is getting gorgeous here. I love this picture of Penny because she looks like she's doing a super hero landing (maybe I've been playing too much Ultimate Alliance. I'm such a loser). Penny is so close to walking but she still has to hold at least one finger...
Dave downloaded Picasa onto our computer and its sweet because it's basically a simpler, dumbed-down photoshop. It has an effect that is supposed to make pics look like film. Did it work (in the pic below)? I can't tell... but I like it.

Also Dave starts his internship on June 7 so we were going to take a little road trip starting on Mon... Where should we go???

"P" Party!

For Penny's first birthday we had a "P" party. It was a picnic in the park with PB&Js, pears, peaches, pineapples, and I made a huge "P" shaped cake. Everyone was supposed to dress up in something that started with P. Penny was a Picnic table. This is the best pic I have of the headband I made for her, bummer that the top of the cupcake and the pie were missing by this point in the day...We played "Pin the crown on the Princess" and "Pin the patch on the pirate"... I made the posters, I think they're pretty good. Penny liked presents. And friends.The "P" Cake was so big it was really hard to get a pic of the whole thing without a wide angle lense. Anyway it was so so fun.

Penny is the best. Happy birthday my sweet baby P.

All Up in My Grill

Whenever I am vacuuming Penny thinks it is 100% necessary to get herself tangled in the cord.
Of course, it's difficult to capture it on camera because whenever I pull the camera out she thinks it is 100% necessary to get her face as close to the lense as possible (that's breakfast on her face by the way). And whenever I am stationary for more than a few moments Penny thinks it is necessary to sit on my feet.
And having Penny all up in my grill is the best thing in the world.

My sweet sweet sister in law gave me her old camera and it is AWESOME! I feel like I'm never really able to capture Penny's cuteness with my point shoot but we had a little fun with Kendra's camera yesterday and it was perfect. Penny is so adorable and now I'll be able to share it with everyone!

A lot of times I think she looks more like Dave than me, but in this pic she looks just like a McArthur!She really wanted to play some b-ball with this guy:SO CUTE!!!

(I love the shoes too Ken).
