Non-Preggos: What's your favorite snack? frozen grapes!

Nope.
Ready for fall? I'm VERY ready for cooler temperatures. Being outside in the heat gives me headaches, so we've been hermits. I can't wait for fall's cool temps of 80º. Then I might be willing to go outside with Aiden. lol.
If you are reading a book - which one? I am currently reading "Positive Discipline"
When was the last time dh cooked dinner? He grilled out hamburgers last night.
Looking forward to anything in particular? Just counting down till Sept 16th. That's when we'll find out DH's career plane and the location of his first operational squadron.
What is/are your child/ren doing new? Aiden spends his days clapping for himself, trying to stand up, zooming around in his walker chasing the cat, eating the cat's food, dumping over the garbage can, picking his nose, and eating as much solids as he can (I swear the kid has a hallow leg!).

I'm waiting for him to get food stuck up there. :rolleyes:

Preggos: Any current cravings?
Non-Preggos: What's your favorite snack? I'm all about salt right now (must be from running in the heat) I've been snacking on Lemons with salt sprinkled on them (weird, I know) and pistachios- but not together.
Any fun plans this month? Not really. We have a few birthday parties this moth and school starts- which excites me to no end because we will get out playgrounds, neighborhood and library back! Smile
Ready for fall? heck, yes!! I LOVE the Fall.
If you are reading a book - which one? I just finished Water for Elephants. I was sad when it ended. I read the authors other 2 books too. They were about horses so I thought I would like them. But I didn't. The main character was a selfish brat.
When was the last time dh cooked dinner? Um......
Looking forward to anything in particular? I'm planning Ava's halloween themed birthday party and I'm really excited about it.
What is/are your child/ren doing new? I'm not doing anything new. I'm boring. The kids do new things everyday! Ava is going to start gymnastics classes and Andew, I might to Sign language classes with. He know quite a bit, so I'm hoping the classes teach more than just the basics.
Care to share a picture? From one of our many milk runs.

Care to share a picture? Do you mind if I share two?

So 2 wks ago was the Calgary Stampede, and we dressed her up as a cowgirl. She was 2 years 5 mths old:

This past long weekend, we took Evie to the Bar U Ranch, SW of Calgary. Again we dressed her up as a cowgirl since we were taking her to a ranch. She got to ride her first horse, a Percheron! Percheron were originally bred as war horses but they were so reliable and could work long hours that they were often used by fire depts and cities back in the day to draw couches and "fire engines". So here she is on "Smudge":

What is/are your child/ren doing new? Jake is acting so grown up. The other day he counted to 30! I was impressed Smile Trevor is growing too fast. He can walk halfway across a room before falling down. His new favorite thing is climbing. He will climb up the back of our Little Tikes slide by himself, he will climb on the swing and STAND up by himself and he has learned to push his toy next to the couch so that he can climb up on it so he can climb on the couch...
