A while back this cat wandered into our yard while we were outside one evening. It was the friendliest cat I've ever seen! It just came right up and let us pet it and it purred and was sweet as can be. It even let Ellie come near and pet it and chase it around the yard. She had a blast and it didn't seem to mind the attention, either.
It's been a couple weeks now since the kitty first showed up and he's still around. He's finished off almost a bag of cat food (left over from last year's transient kitties) and he shows up most evenings to say hi. Yesterday I had Ellie in the stroller in the garage before we went on a walk and she started saying "meow, meow". Sure enough, the cat was in the garage. I guess he thinks he's ours now... at least until we run out of cat food.

This is a photo of my daughter on the 4th of July. She is just shy of 1 year (born the 19th) and she LOVED waving her little flag around! We took her to see the fireworks in the mountains and she loved them. We were afraid she would be scared by the noise, but she wasn't! In fact, when it was all over (almost 3 hours after her bedtime) she looked at me and clapped. My husband got some great pictures of the fireworks and I posted them on our family blog here.
Sorry so late, but I guess better late than never! The babies loved their 4th of July flags! Of course they had no idea what it meant, but they loved the fact that Mommy gave them something cool to play with! Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!
