Jeremy has been working long hours the past few weeks. He also had to work all day on Sat... but we made up for missed Daddy time on Sunday:
@ The Coon Rapids Dam
Isabella was thrilled

Walking around with Daddy
After spending a few hours at the Dam, we ran a few errands and spent the rest of the day at home. JT grilled up some awesome chicken kabobs and we ate outside, watching the hornets trying to get into the nest they have IN OUR ROOF! JT discovered it last weekend and tried to close it up but somehow they keep getting in and out. We can hear the 'ping' of them hitting the siding from inside the house.
Backing up to Friday, I met my friend Jessie and her adorable son Ben,
Bella and Ben
at a baby store in Maple Grove to participate in a baby photo shoot contest. They took Isabella's picture for free and will choose a 'winner' from all the 0-3month olds that came in. Isabella is totally going to win (Sorry, Ben!!) - she actually smiled for the camera! This is the best/only glimpse of a smile I'ev been able to catch on camera:
Anyway, they said they'd email us the pictures in a few weeks. Even if Isabella doesn't win (which I'm sure she will and it will skyrocket her career to doing Target ads and Pampers commercials) at least we will hopefully get a few good pictures out of the deal.
This week is my last full week at home w/ Bella. :( I'm going to enjoy every second of it!
