Mum and Dad decided that it was time for a mini-van. The twins are arriving in October and Grandma and Aunt Than are coming to visit in September so we need more seating than the Honda Accord was allowing us.

We started looking a few weeks ago and started pricing up the available models with the features we wanted and ended up at David McDavid in Frisco. After some hard bargaining, we struck a deal and drove out in a new Honda Odyssey.

Sasha brought his family over on Sunday and the toddlers took us all on a road trip. They enjoyed a nap and we enjoyed the smooth ride and amenities of the van.

Sasha's mum took some nice pictures and sent them to us:

New Lens

I bought a new lens for the Rebel XTi with a fixed focal length and it takes great pictures but I need to get used to it.

Meghan likes it when we cook and enjoys being part of the mess.

We have had some landscaping done by Garrison Gardens after getting some trees from Treeland and the yard is looking nice. Next week, we will get the patio covered by Precision Pavers and then we will be done with the upgrades.

Mini-Gardener and Mini-Cook

Meghan has been helping in the yard and we have been taking pictures. We planted new trees in the back and new flowers in the front and they all need extra water and care and a little gardener.

I was making a cake and Meghan wanted to help:

Happy with Dad's wallet

I planted new flowers (with some help from Mum and Dad)

I decided the front yard was looking plain so I picked out some new flowers and, with some help from Mum and Dad, planted them and watered them.

Sasha came to visit (and brought his parents)

My friend Sasha came to visit today and we had fun with food, drink and outdoor water things.
Sasha is a nice boy and sometimes I like sharing my toys with him and sometimes I don't. Today we played with new water table. He brought his parents Uncle Philippe and Aunt Asel and they played with mum and dad. I asked Dad to put some pictures after this note.

We took Meghan to the community pool this evening and put on the arm-rings that grandma brought and walked her along the step .. and then into the pool. I was just supporting her tummy and she started kicking! Little swimmer! Later she launched off the step into my arms. I think this swimming thing is going to be good.
