Late night pillow jumping

Maren decided that jumping off the carseat onto pillows was fun! Listen to her talk. Just too cute!

Maija's new hair

We got Maija's hair cut. I swear I will never take her to a hair cutter again. NO ONE can cut it right. I should just pay myself since I have to recut it anyways. And yes, I do straighten her hair. I think its darling.

4th of July, a little late

We had a busy day. We went swimming at the Seward public pool, which totally rocks. Then we had a barbeque at Sarah and Kevin's house. Next was the parade! After that we all trekked over to MomMom's house to do fireworks. The weather was so nice this year. Mid 80's and a nice breeze.

Preston's teeth

Sorry for the delay! Preston got his braces off July 3rd. He's been doing his Phase One orthodontic treatment since April 2007. They started out with the upper jaw expansion and then braces on the front four teeth to close the gaps. He will wear a retainer until he gets the rest of his adult teeth in and then get full braces on top and bottom. OY!

A fun new (old) toy!

Maren got a new (old) toy yesterday. Its a little swingset, slide, climber combo thingy that Preston actually received for his first birthday. We had it for a few years, gave it away and somehow its made its way back to us. Maren is quite happy with it and slides down it all day and night. Even the baby dolls get to go down the slide.

And about Preston's braces. He was supposed to get them off yesterday but one of his teeth shifted and that meant the retainer would not fit, so a new power chain was put on and we'll go back on Thursday to get his braces off. Poor kid was so excited to get them off.
