Playing Golf with Sammie

Our friend Tara dropped off these golf clubs a couple of weeks ago and Samantha LOVES them. Rick is of course super excited that he might have a future golf buddy on his hands. For just having them a little while she is getting good at whacking the ball!

Dinner Date

This past Saturday we went to have dinner with our friends Jim & Stephanie and their two boys...Jay (5) and Ty (16 mos). With schedule differences and living in different parts of town we don't see each other as much as we should so this was a super nice time. Samantha had a great time with those boys! She has never been so dirty - it was great to see her keeping up with the boys. There was sidewalk chalkand pool time and then playing in the dirt and the sand box and the basketball hoop and the slide and and and. She also sat at a picnic table all by herself. I was very impressed that she stayed there and she scarfed down that food! Great night with great friends. Hope we do it again soon.

Oooh, that looks like fun

14 Months

see her first year in photos...and see month 13

We had a great July! Samantha has been learning all kinds of things like mastering walking. We even got out the baby stroller that my family gave me before Samantha was born. She loves pushing around my Cabbage Patch doll, Diana, that I (with a lot of help from the parents!) have saved for about 25 years and moved to how many states (probably 4?). There are more saved for that I know that she likes them maybe I will have to get them out!

pushing around Diana

I had to put a sack of potatoes in the base of the stroller to help weigh it down at first

Relaxed with Murphy...

Still loving on Bob the giraffe lovie a lot...

notice how she has "organized" her books behind her

Reading with Murph XL a lot...

she will get a book and sit on this stuffed doggie all the time

I went to the mountains (Saluda, NC) with some girlfriends for a weekend and had a great time. We just relaxed and shopped and went tubing! It was a great getaway...

Bubba Donna bought Samantha this super cool riding toy. At first she couldn't figure out how to ride on it and would sit side saddle. She is now becoming quite the pro

This girl is super fun. A great personality and so fun to watch her discover the world!
