Emmy got some more practice walking today! She’s doing pretty well, especially if she gets lots of good feedback. Today she did really well both at the park and when we played charades afterward. Check it out!
One of Emmy’s Uncle Christian’s favorite games is charades. While we were playing tonight, Emmy decided that she wanted to act one out, too. It’s anyone’s guess as to what movie she’s acting out. Here’s the video:
Last week we got back from a visit to Julia’s grandparents in Central Oregon. We had a lot of fun, and it was exciting to see Emmy warm up to her great-grandparents again. We’re visiting my grandparents in August, so we’re excited that Emmy will have met all her living grandparents and great-grandparents!
Enough talk, here are the pictures you’ve been waiting for! For more, click the Photos link above.
At first Emmy was a little scared of her great-grandpa Cecil, but she definitely recognized him by the end of our trip.
Emmy loved to bring books over to her great-grandma so that they could look at pictures together.
One of the highlights of the trip for Julia was going to Ponderosa Pizza, a restaurant she remembers visiting often as a kid. Aside from the (slightly) newer video games, the place hasn’t changed much.
Emmy’s great-grandma found a little scooter for Emmy for just 75 cents. Emmy’s great-grandpa gets around on a scooter, too, so they had lots of races around the kitchen.
Although it was pretty cold (especially considering that it was June), we spent a couple of days driving around to different sites in Central Oregon. This picture was taken at a lake where Bruce used to work when he was a teenager.
Emmy loved playing with Pudge. For the first couple of days she was scared to death of their dog, but we decided to kick a soccer ball around with Pudge and Emmy loved her after that. We wore that poor old dog out three days in a row, after which she would go for a swim in muddy water. Emmy does a pretty good impersonation of Pudge now, sticking out her tongue and panting on request. We’ll have to get more pictures of that for sure!
