The Other 1/2 of the 4th Vacation

In the spirit of keeping up with our non-stop onslaught of EGB pics and happenings.....we're coming at ya with the rest of the 4th of July Wyoming pics. This edition will highlight the cousins' rendezvous, Grandpa's holding hold, and mountaintop escapades.

"Will fart for graham crackers."
Spinnin in my dress. Twirl a girl!
We're heading to the mountaintop "bar". See that little spot in the middle of the picture? That's the destination bar. It's "the smallest bar with on top of a mountain in the middle of Wyoming with no bar".

Cousin Logan Lane with Grandpa at the bar. Make me an iced formula shake, Grandpa!Does this hat make my cheeks look smaller?
Aunt Allie and cuz Logan all smiles. Smiles make me happy too.
This is our feeble attempt to take a group photo. Yes, the group is there, but Grandpa is yelling at the dogs, Logan is taking off her socks, Mama is looking at the sunset, I'm pooping, and Papa D is looking right at the camera like a good boy.
Grandpa with his holding chokehold on cuz Logan. Logan finds it funny. I don't play like that. If Grandpa tries that on me, I'm gonna pee in his coffee. I'm just sayin'.

Here's my pretty lil cuz in a car seat at least 20 miles away from the nearest car. But if a car were to pull up and she needed to get in right away she'd be ready. She must be a Girl Scout or something....always prepared and pockets full of cookies.
Ok, Logan. I'm gonna hit the buckle and you make a run for it. Don't turn around just run. I'll meet you at the bottom by the milk cooler. We'll hide until we need our diapers changed. Then we'll scream.
Me and Dairy Mama Queen. We're happy because we both have dry diapers.

Hey get your paws off of my Os!
Feel my hair, girl. Oh, it's natural. I just use fruit and berries.
Wait! Don't cry. You can get this beautiful hair for just $19.99. I'll email you the website.
"Um. Toto? I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." says EGB.
"No kiddin' cuz. I think we're in a shower." says Logan.
"I've never taken a shower before. I'm glad to share it with you. Pass the soap." says EGB.
"I think I just ate it." says Logan
"Ok. You'll fart bubbles now." says EGB
"Cool." says Logan

It's An Overdue Post!!!!

This morning I woke up to a shrieking, "Whaaaaaat?"

So I go running to source of the scream at the computer. It's EGB, who had broken out of her cage, logged on the the Internet, and realized that there has only been one blog entry in the month of July. A short one, at that. So I say to her, "Hey, you little 6-toothed (a new development) baboon. What are you doing out of your cage and more importantly, if you know how to use the Internet, why don't you have a job?"

EGB, being smarter than us mortals, said, "First of all, I'm out of my cage because I built a helicopter out of diapers in my sleep. Secondly, I don't have a job, because you haven't updated the blog which ultimately is supposed to be used to attract the attention of agents that can strategically place me with products that will sell millions."

"Oh." I shrugged and left EGB to her surfing the web for cow pictures. Cows are like naked milk pictures. I'm thinking about blocking those sites.

So yes, EGB is correct. There has been some neglect in the blogosphere. Which truly is unfair to those of you who don't get to see the daily delights of EGB. Quite frankly, it's busy around here. Busy doing what, you ask? We're busy living our lives so that we have material for the blog. That's really what we're living for. The blog. If there was no blog, we'd be living in a cavernous basement in utter darkness awaiting EGB's first day of college. But because there is a blog....we have an obligation to leave the house and live. In the words of Hemingway, "Go to Key West. Drink beer. Shoot guns"

Wait...wrong quote. Actually, he said, "In order to write about life, first you must live." True.

We've been busy celebrating EGB's bipedal existence (in the way a drunken sailor is bipedal--it's negotiable). About 3 weeks ago she made the full transition from part-time walker to full-time. Evolution before our very eyes. Still not much hair, but a congregation of curls have gathered on the back of her head. There are some new words, "happy, wizard, shoe, please, thank you." (Hmmm. Happy Wizard Shoe? Could be onto something...)

We're going to try to play catch up and get you the past few months over the next few weeks. We'll start with our trip to Wyoming for the 4th of July.....

The entrance to Shady Lane Ranch.....Look really hard and you'll see EGB in the branches of the 7th tree on the right. See her. No? That's because she's not there.
Gone swimmin. This attire is whack. I've got a Wonder Woman bikini on with a floral safari hat and over sized life jacket? Wonder Woman doesn't need life jackets. I'm like the opposite of Wonder Woman.....introducing the first episode of da, da, daaaaa--Normal Girl!
That's better. Here is Normal Girl doing something very normal for a 13 month old--being assisted by her mother in a swimming pool. Stay tuned for the next episode of Normal Girl as she eats blueberries for a snack.
Hola. I'm headed to Mexico where the milk is warmer.
Papa Dangerous and his artistic photo. He's not really wearing all black and 15 feet tall. That's his shadow which is much stronger than the real Papa.

Since you're not gonna move your head, I guess I'll say thank you Dairy Momma for giving me the back of your sweaty neck to put my sticky cheek on to nap.
Me and the captors. They are embarrassing.
Checking out the grand Wyoming scenery. It's a whole lotta dirt.
Are you going to keep me in this stinking backpack all weekend? What do you think I am? A textbook?
Oh my goodness! We're lost! We're gonna get eaten by monsters.
Go that wayyyyyyy! I smell millllk!
Whew we made it. Back to the land where milk flows like dirty diapers.
