Asparagus Festival and 3 Month Photos

Its official, this was my last week off before I start back to work -from home - part time Wednesday. Not exactly looking forward to it, but we figured we'd give it a try.

Friday we had a delicious lunch at Waterloo with the Bush's. It was a great visit with them and chance to meet Nico. He is darling and growing so quickly.

Well this year the Asparagus Festival was not quite the same as years past. We went on Friday with the Kernals. It was SO windy but we were able to poke around at the booths, have a couple beers, and of course have some deep fried asparagus we wait all year for. While we were at the festival Nicole wanted to buy Garden gadgets. (I'm not sure what the heck to call them) I have always seen people at the festival walking around with these and thought who the hell would buy these. we know. Nicole Kerns :) But I have to admit once she had them in the backyard they looked much better than I thought. The flamingo doesn't exactly blend in, but the other more "real" looking birds and bugs do blend in a bit, and certainly sway in that Delta breeze!!

Sunday we did the annual Great Spear-It Run 5K- we only had to stop once to feed the crying baby. Darn kid disrupting our exercise :)

This weekend Mike and I were able to get some projects done around the house. Giada was very content outside in her bouncer hanging out with Sydney.

While at the Kernals this weekend I also did some "market research." Time for Giada to have an exersaucer, and jumper, with so many reviews online its hard to choose, so we tested out all Dylans toys. They were a hit, cant wait for ours to arrive, she seemed to love playing in them now that she has figured out her hands and feet can do much more now. She is making lots of noises and laughing and smiling a lot, which is so much fun.

Hard to believe but she is 3 months old. So, this week I went to Sears and took some photos. I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't turn out too corny. I really love some of the naked ones but didn't want to post them online. She wouldn't cooperate for all the poses the photographer wanted - they kept saying she was so "squirmy" and then Giada proceeded to pee all over the black drape they were using as well...oops, guess they are used to dealing with babies though and didn't seem to mind.
