Wheeler Farm

I was reading Millie some animal books the other day and she was acting a little more interested, so I decided that we need to head off to see some of these animals that we have heard so much about.

It's weird to me that she will not really ever be on a farm because I grew up playing on both of my grandparents farms and loved it. I went to the hospital at least 12 times because of those awesome experiences. It's things like driving trackers when your 8, or driving trucks with your cousins pushing the clutch while you drive the steering wheel and shift because you can't reach the pedals, and jumping four-wheelers that mold kids.

On the other hand, I haven't seen too many kids around that have lost limbs due to farming accidents like I use to when I was a kid.

Liberty Park

It has been a great summer filled with many Liberty Park trips. We love it, it's super close, its huge, full of water features, swings and birds (Tracy Aviary).

Here are a few pics from a few weeks ago.

Millie loves this little room at Tracy Aviary full of birds. Especially this little guy to the right. He did nibble her finger shortly after this photo, but I think she forgives him.

She also like to drink the gross water that comes out of these fountains.

This is her bear crawl that she has been doing for the past few weeks. She has walked a little bit, but really sees no point in it. We try to get her to do it, but she just sits down as soon as she realizes what we're up to.

Millie time-lapse video

This kind of sums up what happens at breakfast. Playing while eating, fighting the food, fighting with all her might as she gets her face wiped off, take a minute to forget why she was fighting, find something else to play with in the room. Then its all smiles until the next round.


Here are a few of Millie's cousins. All of them are about a month apart. Pretty cute crew!

Millie's words at 13 months

These are most of the words that she really knows. She also knows duck (duck duck) but I forgot about that one.

Back from Dana Point

We just got back from seeing some of Alisa's extended family in Dana Point, California. It was good to see them since we don't get to see them very often. It was also really great to spend time with Alisa.

We also surfed, got burned, and went to the Getty in LA. Great trip guys!
