The Ends of Summer

25 August 2011

So we've had a happy and busy few weeks. We had a lovely shower thrown by these lovely ladies:

All of whom are expecting new little ones of their own. :D :D :D There you go. Big grins for each of you. :D :D :D and big grins for your babies.

We had a wonderful visit from my college buddies who made MAJOR hikes to come see the little Rhodes. Somehow I didn't end up with photos of any of the cool things we did. But I did end up with these:

Lauren so sweet and Alexis so mischievous.
Glencora and Jake still in their pjs.
Tara very at home in the Brentwood coffee shop with her hip haircut...
We got to see Zia Vale all the way from Roma. Ci manchi, Vale!

Other than that: drool. Yes, mostly just drool. We may be behind on certain milestones...but we're not behind on our drooling.

We've also been enjoying the air up there.

Oh, and Jake laughed today. For the first time. His first real laugh. 
What did he find so funny? 
His face. 

Work starts on Tuesday. It's been a lovely summer. Monumental. And it's over.

Maybe in honor of football season I'll join Hulu+ and start watching the final season of Friday Night Lights. Those of you who don't understand how truly exciting that is...well you need to spend some time with Coach Eric Taylor and the Panthers.

Until next time. Still the young, happy couple and our doll.


  1. loving your hair! new bangs?

    Thanks for the comment love on the giveaway!!!

    Jake is TOOOO cute.

  2. Thanks, Grace. Yes...The pendulum has swung me back to my other of two haircuts. (I didn't realize I was this boring, but when I got back from getting my hair cut my little sister didn't hesitate to inform me.)
