Steak Pie

Our new Friday night routine is that I (Alex) make dinner, and then we watch a movie while eating it!

Tonight's recipe: Rick Stein's Steak, Ale and Oyster Pie (but without the Oysters, because it is Summer), and Julie and Julia. Both pretty good.


Time to Catch up.

I've just spent the morning bringing the blog up to date. I put the posts in chronological order so you'll need to go all the way back to the beginning of May to see the new posts. I'm going to try and do better with posting more regularly......

In the mean time here are some pictures of Ada from this morning.


I'm gonna bite my pillow.

We have noticed in the last few days that Ada has been enjoying biting things. Sometimes she does it when she is happy, sometimes when she is frustrated, and sometimes, we think, just because she can. We're watching here closely, though, because we don't want her to start biting people. This morning she got frustrated that I wouldn't let her type on the computer so she bit the couch pillow!


Studying for Ordination.

One afternoon I went to get Ada up from her nap and found that she had pulled down one of Alex's notebooks into the bed with her. Upon closer inspection I discovered that it was one of his study guides for his ordination exams. I guess Ada wanted to beef up on her Church History!

Swim Lessons.

Ada and I have been going to the local community pool every morning for swim lessons. She loves the water and is a definitely the champion swimmer in her class!

Pictures and a promise.

Is anyone out there? Have we lost all of our followers? We sure hope not! We promise we will be back soon with lots of updates. In the mean time check out the pictures our friends Nate and Laura took a few weeks ago.

Saying goodbye to 105 Jones.

May has been a busy and exciting month. We celebrated Ada's first birthday, traveled to St. Louis, celebrated Sara's 30th birthday, and packed up our apartment and moved to Saint Simons. It was hard to say goodbye to our friends in Savannah and to leave our wonderful little apartment. We will miss 105 Jones so much. Before we left for the last time we snapped some pictures of Ada in and outside her first home.

Birthday trip to Saint Louis.

We traveled to Saint Louis to celebrate Ada's birthday with family and to have a little vacation before we moved. On Ada's actual birthday we went to the zoo to see the lions, tigers, bears and of course the penguins! After the zoo we had lunch at the Boathouse.

The day after Ada's birthday we had a ladybug party at Dude and Dolly's house. We grilled sausages on the bbq, played in the backyard, made homemade Italian sodas, ate strawberry cupcakes, opened presents, and had a good time!

We made a photo time-line/birthday banner with one picture for each month of Ada's life.

After all the partying and celebrating Ada was exhausted and
slept a lot of the drive back to Savannah.

Ada's Savannah Party

We had a Mexican Fiesta themed party for Ada's first birthday. We ate nachos, played with bubbles, burst open a pinata, ate cupcakes, opened presents, and had a really good time with really good friends. It was a great first birthday!
