Our Arkansas Adventure

We had a great, but short, visit to Arkansas last weekend for Miss Maggie's First Communion. Although it rained during our drive to and from Karl and Loretta's house, the weather on Saturday was very nice. Here are some pictures...



The Sommerhauser family all together.



The Sommerhauser girls sitting as still as we will probably ever see for the next 5 years.







A good picture of Maggie and her daddy.





Another good picture of Amelia, Loretta, Karl, and Maggie.






A fuzzy picture of the girls' impromptu slumber party.






Everybody loves story time...and Maggie is a very good reader.














Sarah had lots of fun playing with (and in) Maggie's new storage box...but don't even think about buying Sarah a bunch of Hannah Montana stuff. Of course Amelia had to cram herself inside of the box when Sarah was done playing with it (sorry no pictures of that).

Our Colorado Adventure

We had a great time in Denver several weeks ago. Joella enjoyed the robot competition and we had a great visit with all of her cousins. The drive back across Kansas was very windy and Sarah got pretty grumpy for the last few hours. Here are some pictures...

Taking a nap in the Baby Bjorn during the competition.



Sarah caught trying to escape the hotel room.

Sarah all bundled up for a trip out in the snow.





I think that Jacob has a new baby sitting job.






Sarah had lots of fun with cousins Katherine, Arica, Pamela, and Bo.





Sarah posing with Arica.





Sarah wasn't too worried that she couldn't find her spoon...as long as she had her washcloth.



Stay tuned because tomorrow we will talk about the great Arkansas adventure that we had last weekend.

Almost Mobile!

Sarah is so close to crawling. She has been making forward progress this week and will probably be crawling all over the house and chasing the dogs by this weekend.

Happy Easter!


Sarah wants to wish everyone a very Happy Easter! Sarah was quite a character today at church...smiling and flirting with all of the men around us. Of course her favorite pasttime at church is trying to grab and chew on the hymnal.
