The Last Few Moments of Summer

 We have been trying to make the most out of the dog days of summer.  This means that our diet has basically become blackberry smoothies.  No complaints from these two.
Cute and Scary
 Daisy's favorite activity of the day is to watch "Daniel's Tiger Hood"  I have tried to explain that it is really Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood but she thinks that if she sticks with her way it will give her more street cred.
Rocky has been riding her bike.  It turns out of you are patient enough to wait until your kids are big enough to take their own training wheels off that teaching them to ride without them takes about 5 minutes.  That's not to say that she hasn't had her share of falls, but so far nothing that a glitter band-aid can't fix.

You already know what Rosy has been up to.  Basically she divides her time between attacking her dad and avoiding attacks from her sisters.
 Brandon is back at school teaching and working on his paper but we still make time to go to the pool almost every day.  We also have nightly dance parties.  One of my favorite parts about having three young daughters is that I can totally jam out to Party in the U.S.A. without feeling even a little embarrassed.  I just tell myself that I'm doing it to be a super fun mom, not because I'm a dork.

Rocky was in music camp for a week.  I was scared to have her gone from 9 until 3 but it turned out to be good for both of us.  I'm not sure if she actually learned that much about music but she had a blast improvising with her teacher who is an amazing jazz pianist.
 And the highlight of the past couple of weeks was Anhiel Valverde's wedding.  It was the perfect night in Brownsville with an amazing view, great food, and even better company.

 The dessert buffet caught the eye of these two (and their mom.)
 We love Anhiel and Alex and it was great to celebrate with them.
