Well, ever since Cara's birthday party, we can't find the cord that hooks our computer to our digital camera. It's driving me crazy, because I usually download the pictures a few times a week, and now my card is getting full. That's why there are no new ones on flickr. In other news, we had a great trip to Dallas June 24-27th. We got to see a lot of Baylor friends. We stayed with Justin and Ashley Wood, and visited with Nathan and Shannon Wood (& Garrett) a lot. We also went to McKinney to visit with the Dutys (on their trip home from Michigan) and Dazeys.

We had a great 4th of July visiting with Eric's best friend Ronnie, and his wife and Amanda and their family. They were in town from Denver, and we had a great time. I forgot to bring Cara's sleepy blanket, so she didn't go down so easy that evening there in the pack n play, and woke up before we went to go do fireworks. So we took her with us and she just sat in awe. She wasn't scared, just watched them. However, when we were done our car wouldn't start because we ate away at the battery. Ronnie's mom had AAA tow our car to our house and a friend gave us a ride home. The next morning we got a new battery and all is well. However, it was awesome because of being up late, Cara slept till almost 9. And every morning since (except when we woke her up early for church on Sunday) she has slept until at least 8:30. It's been awesome!!

In other news, since we are in need of a 2nd used car by the time Eric goes back to summer band August 8th, we are both working side jobs this month. I am working 6 am - noon Tuesday/Thursday at the old CPA office I worked for a few months last fall. It's nice because I miss Houston traffic, and I'm home around lunch time. Eric is playing with the town and country theater the last 3 weekends in July. Last night was their first rehearsal. I didn't get to talk to him because they rehearsed till 11, and I was asleep when he got home due to having to get up and get to work this early.

My sister, Bailey, and I have been taking course 1 of a cake decorating class at Michael's. It's been fun doing it together, mostly because we have to teach ourselves because our teacher is not really doing much. We have also certainly enjoyed the fruits of our labors! We've been scrapbooking a lot together, and I have gotten a lot done!!!! It's been great. It's been amazing having Eric home all summer. We traveled a lot in June, and now we are getting to enjoy our family time and get stuff done around the house. We cleaned out the entire garage yesterday. Not only organized and got stuff ready for goodwill, but CLEANED it! Cara got to play in her little baby pool, she loves that thing! We had date night Sunday night at the Alamo Draft House theather in Katy. It is the best place to go see a movie, we've been going to it for years (the one at west oaks before this one opened). It's relaxed and you can eat and drink. We had just had dinner, but we got to have a coke and water, and maybe a little strawberry daiquari. We saw Evan Almighty, which was very cute. After the movie, we went to Cold Stone Creamery (because I had a buy 1 get 1 free coupon), and it was good as well. Although to B1G1Free, you have to get like a medium size, and it was HUGE!

Cara is walking like a pro now. She is such a happy baby. Eric and I were just talking about how fun she is and how much we can't even imagine our lives without her. We truly are enjoying being parents.

Our 6 year anniversary is coming up July 21st. We are waiting until Monday the 23rd to celebrate (it's cheaper). We are going down to Galveston to stay at the Tremont House. We're going to shop on the strand, have lunch at my friend Trayce's Mosquito Cafe and overall enjoy each other's company. My mom will watch Cara for her first night away from us. Wish us luck!
