Memorial Day 2006

A little girl needs Daddy
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!

Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart.

Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
She'll always find him there.

Papa, Nonno, Dad,
We miss you everyday and we hope you are happy and at peace.

Random Pictures

I know I have been so bad about posting pictures. I have had some teeth issues and have to have my wisdom teeth taken out next Wednesday, but I finally got some meds for the pain, thank goodness. Anyway here are some pics from this week. The dogs have been very good lately and Isabella is able to interact with them more without us worrying that Pongo is going to snap at her. He even takes treats from her very carefully. I hope it continues. :) Anyway we will be in Pueblo and La Junta Friday and Sat so I will try to post pics Sunday. Have a great Memorial Weekend!

BBQ at Hillary and Matt's

We went to a BBQ at Hillary and Matt's house last night and we had a great time. Isabella loved playing with Puck and Carmen. Puck loved licking Jake's legs and arms. It was really nice to spend time with Hillary again and we really love Matt and we hope to start spending more time with them soon.

Too Hot Outside!

Isabella really wanted to play outside today but it was 91 outside, too hot for us and way too hot for Giuliana. We decided to play on the slide and floor inside the hallway instead! :) We need to set up the pool very soon!! :)

First Smiles

This has to be one of my favorite times in infancy, Giuliana is smiling on purpose! We all try to get her to smile but she loves smiling at Isabella the best. I was lucky to catch a few smiles with the camera! She is growing so fast, in 11 days she will be 2 months old. Where does the time go?

Mother's Day 2006...Best so Far!

I had the best Mother's Day, we went to the zoo, then went and got breakfast, went to our favorite Chinese place in Golden, napped at home, went to Jake's Dad's house, and then to dinner with his Mom. Finally back home with 2 worn out girls. It was the perfect day. Thanks Guys!

At the Zoo with Katy

Beth and I took Isabella, Katy, Alex and Giuliana to the zoo today. We only stayed a little while because it began to rain but everyone had a really nice time. Both Katy and Isabella wanted to be free from the strollers so we let them walk as long as they held hands. They were so funny!

First Visit From the Ice Cream Truck!

The neighborhood ice cream truck made its first appearance this evening. Isabella wasn't as excited as we were but once she figured out it was ice cream she was really happy. We had a nice evening on the porch, it was so nice outside today.

Busy Saturday Morning!

Well ok, Giuliana in the bath was last night, but it was almost today! :) We had a busy morning, Isabella is learning to ride her trike, we pulled weeds and still had time to play on the slide. That was all before 11am! Now everyone is asleep. :)
