Our Little Lizard-Tongue Baby

Here we are hiking again at Dishman Hills. Just stopping to appreciate the local flora.
Poor Pele. She gets so hot. Good thing we didn't match somewhere in Arizona!

So Katie Bug always has her tongue out now. But it seems to go to the right all the time. We call her our little lizard-tongued baby. She just likes to add a little style to her smile, I think.
This is Kate begging to help with dishes. OK, so she's actually licking the dishwasher while Jeremy and I were eating dinner. I swear we weren't starving her, she actually ate first, but I guess she wanted to try out the flavor of whirlpool.
However, due to the fact that our house is far from child proof as we are packing and she is now so mobile, the Bug gets put in what we lovingly call her "kennel" when we have to do something without her help. Don't worry, we're in the same room and she has plenty of toys in her little cage here, I just love the way she peeks over the edge.
However, despite all of the toys, she still gets bored inside and is much happier on the grass outside. Like mother, like daughter. Don't you love how well I match her clothes?
Ah, our precious little lizard again. This is her crawling on top of me in the grass.
One of our neighbors saw us laying on the grass and decided Kate needed to be introduced to bubbles. She never figured out why the disappeared as soon as she got them.
Other than that, not much has happened in the last two weeks other than Jeremy and I organizing and calling kingdom come to figure out our move. One exciting event that I did forget to mention from the trip to Salt Lake.....
So I said I'd stopped in at the Burn Unit. Well, I talked to the manager over Burn Camp (a summer camp for youth who've been patients on the Burn Unit), and they still had a slot open for a female counselor for the river trip. Jeremy and I talked it out and it worked out for us so I'm going down the river in June! Crazy, because it's smack in the middle of us moving, but it still worked out well and I'm thrilled! I've been practicing different songs on the guitar that I can sing to the kids. I don't know how well they know John Denver, but I'm bringing some other things as well. The last time I went was 2 weeks before Jeremy and I got married. Burn Camp is a magical place and it's a very happy feeling for me to be able to go. Jeremy will have Kate and be hanging out with his family while I'm away, then we'll start our journey out East as soon as I get back. It'll be crazy, but what isn't in this life?

I'm so glad I found your blog. Yipee for me. Now I can see pictures of your super cute Kate all of the time (or when you get around to posting them).

So you are moved by now I assume. We have too. Rob got a job in the Tri-Cities area. We have been here for about a month.
