Week in Review

We had a great week this week.  Trigg hit the 9 month mark and is becoming a man on the move.  We did our first shoulder ride and we both thought it was so fun!
 It was hot all week, temps in the 90's to 100's we headed to the pool to cool off.  Grandma Doreen got Trigg these sweet swim undie's that go under his swim he doesn't have to wear a swim diaper.  They work great...and work pretty good as a hat too!
 Trigg also loves helping fold his laundry...
 ...catch that side...
 ...and fold!
 The Olympics are right around the corner and we are all excited to watch...Trigg, inspired by the gymnasts, has been working on his infant splits!
 ...and I was afraid that this day would come, confusion between Trigg's toys and Riley's Trigg was rolling around the basement he came across Riley's dog first it was just a close inspection...
 ...but then he wanted to try chewing on it like Riley!  The bone was quickly removed...
 ...and replaced with a car.  That sheepish grin!
 My car!
 The backyard project has doesn't look like much now, but that is a fairly steep hill (used for sleding in the winter), well the plan is to dig out the hill and put in retaining walls with a lower patio and fire pit.
The first wall is taking shape!
Our grass may be dead but our hydrangea's are blooming!
We planted these Lime Light hydrangea's last year and I just love them!
Oh yeah...these two have been chasing each other around the house all week too!  They usually keep it to a dull roar with an occasional bark!  Riley always loves having friends over!
Well that pretty much wraps up our week.  Hope your week was good too! 
A new ending to the week in review: question of the week.  This week's question: What book (or books) are you reading this summer?

I returned from the library today with Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids. I'm looking forward to it!

I just started reading The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy. It's about life during WWII on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel.
