I apologize in advance for the sheer volume of photos in this post . . . but here is a brief overview of our vacation this July. Marlee had so much fun "meeting" her extended family again, for the first time. We can't wait to see you all again!

The New Bed

Monday, September 06, 2010 by RDT

As I type, Stephen is sleeping - no, snoring on the couch after a long day. If we had a family competition for the hardest worker, Stephen would win it today, hands down.

Today, on Labor Day, we built Marlee her very first big girl bed. We used these plans (thank you, Ana) and Stephen did almost all the construction himself. Marlee was also a trooper today, as we kept her inside almost the whole day. Poor little girl. With an awesome new bed.
