Peanuts in July

We had dinner with this weekend. We always enjoy our time with the peanuts. Hoot loves the boys. Harry is the COOLEST according to Hoot. Libbie really let down her guard with Kate this visit. Libbie is very cautious with girls her age. She doesn't like to be picked up or bossed around...I think this comes from her time in China. She keeps her distance from most kiddos and it takes her a while for her to warm up. Well... all week she talked about Kate. She couldn't wait to play in Kate's kitchen. Kate is so gentle and sweet and I think she won Libbie over! I've never seen Libbie let down her gaurd and act so silly. They danced and laughed all night. Libbie was asleep in her car seat almost before we got out of the driveway. We all enjoyed the company and the yummy yummy dinner. Dave is quite the man when it comes to smoking brisket. Kim and I took the girls to a park for a little mini session. It was awesome. DSC_3104 DSC_3114 DSC_3116 DSC_3117 DSC_3199 I love this picture. Kate has a spring in her step. Libbie was in awe of her and mimicked everything she did. (look how Libbie is watching her) DSC_3273 so Libbie found a spring her step as well DSC_3245 Can you say silly? Kate put a little flower in Libbie's hair DSC_3211 DSC_3224 HAM DSC_3293 DSC_3326 DSC_3299 Can you feel the love?

  5. Very nice pics. I'm kicking the bronchitis now with antibiotics - so will be in better spirits next time. My ribs are better than my brisket - ribs and I will try to get proper Ohio corn next time if the northern drought and heat haven't killed it off for the year. I understand the Indiana corn fell ill the last couple weeks. To be expected.
    Golfing with Mr L some weekend befor long maybe - I'll dust off the clubs....the swing will be fine, it's only been 4 years since I played:-)
