A Day in the Life of Ruthie

We woke up early and were running an errand when we heard on the radio that 150 cowboys were doing there annual ride through downtown Colorado Springs.  So Ruthie (in her pj's) and I hurried to see all the cowboys in there hats and boots on there horses.  Ruth loved it!!!!
  I forgot my camera so no pic.  We then went home and played in the backyard.  I turned my back for 1 minute and turned around to see black all over Ruthie's face.  I first thought it was black paint since our house is being painted.  As I investigated further I realized it was soot from the grate over the firepit.  HILLARIOUS!!!

We went inside to change....Ruthie then got into my purse and found a lollipop I had for the airplane incase of an emergency.  She had unwrapped it and had drool all down her shirt by the time I got to her.  By that time I couldn't take it away so she had her first lollipop at 9:00 am.

After her am nap we went to a park with a huge moving fountain.  There was a wade pool at the bottom that was negitive 2 degrees.  By the end of it Ruthie's whole body was purple.
At snack time Ruthie used her spoon all by herself.  She did a great job!!!
That was our day!!!

More Beach Pics

This is what happens when you put sunscreen on Ruthie's head.

We dug a little pool everyday for everyone to play in.

Cuddled up to Grandma Guthrie
Ruthie loves her cousins.

Griggs loved to help dig the pool.

Praise the Lord for the beach!!!

Wrightsville Beach

Ruthie loved the jillions of fiddler crabs

Sorry for the lack of blogging....we have been at wrightsville beach with friends and kim's family for the past week. We've played a bunch of board games, built sand castles, surfed, fished and everything else. Ruthie got her foot caught in a beach toy, but grandma glo put Crisco oil on her foot and it finally came out. Our friend Pete and Kathy have put some pics of us up on their blogs. and

Well, we are headed to Wilmiwood to see friends and family.  We are so excited to go back and see everyone and take a break from work and house projects.  

Here are a few random Ruthie pics....

I love this face!

Ruthie napped for 2 hours and 20 min. last Sunday.  I finally had to go wake her to go to church.  I tickled her, took pictures, shut doors, and did just about everything to try to wake her up.  After 15 or 20 min.  I finally just picked her up.  Needless to say, we were late for church.

Ruthie knows how to open the kitchen cabinet and smart mommy put the Cheerios on the bottom shelf.  This is what I found one day when I came in the kitchen.

Lovin' the water!

This is Ruthie's friend Eleanor.  Ruth was so excited to have a friend over, but after Eleanor started playing with Ruthie's "Baby" it wasn't so fun. ("Baby" is the one face down in this pic.)

This is Ava and Ruthie looking at books.  We met Ava and her mom in the park by our house.  They are only 3 days apart in age.
