Summertime Fun

I know...I know, I have really been slacking at this blogging business. Maybe I will do better once the baby comes...maybe not.

Here are some pictures from our summer so far. We have had some fun times, including a road trip to Chicago to see Grandma and Grandpa Dallin and their new home there. My brother Michael was able to fly in from New England to spend some time there also. We had a great time!
My parent's new house is in a really cool old town, that we enjoyed walking around. Here is Selina posing with Uncle Michael, Grandpa, and Grandma in front of a fountain in town.

Jeff and Selina

I can't remember now if this is the view from my Dad's new office, or from his downtown apartment. Either way, we were really high up, which made me a little nervous! On the left there is the Sears Tower.

On the way back from Chicago we took a slight detour and spent a few hours in Nauvoo and at Carthage Jail. It was neat to go back there with Jeff and Selina.

The Nauvoo Temple

We spent the 4th of July weekend here in Texas. It has been VERY hot here, but we managed to make it to the beach at the lake by our house and to see the fireworks.

Selina has come a long way from last Summer when we spent some time at York Beach in Maine. She wouldn't touch the sand last year and cried because she was getting dirty, this year she is right there in it digging away.

And last but not least, I have to post a picture of our chickens. In addition to providing us with fertilizer, eggs, and pest control they also provide us with some great entertainment. Chickens are very funny animals, and we often find ourselves watching them out the back window while we eat dinner.

So fun to visit Chicago. I've never been. Looks like we'll have to venture out sometime to hang out with your mom, too. :) I would also LOVE to visit the church history sites.
My favorite picture is Selina smiling on the beach. I want a lake and little beach by my house...
