Pudge and Biggie have gone missing from the blogosphere and the void is painful. However, after consulting with Ms. Courtney Heigele herself (the mastermind behind the best blog on the Internet), I am pleased to announce that this sabbatical is only temporary. After she resolves a few copyright infringement issues, Pudge and Biggs (and that adorable little Effie) will be back in full effect! So all of you protesters can unchain yourselves from our front porch and take your picket signs and head back home to cope with your Squib withdrawal as best you can knowing that it won't last long (Pudge recommends you eat two handfuls of Cheetos and a monster cookie to help get you through). In the meantime we have been instructed to "carry the torch," as if that's possible...
Remember when I only had one baby and her name was Josie and I took pictures of her and posted them to the blog almost every day?
That was pretty easy to do back when baby #1 sat on her behind and danced and admired her reflection in the mirror all day. And then in the funny way that this universe works, baby #2 came along and baby #1 was miraculously mobile and suddenly, it wasn't as easy to find the time to take photos and write blog posts.
Well, I still take photos every day. It's kind of a hobby. Some might consider it an addiction.
Perhaps my obsession with photography is because it will make sure and preserve these moments despite my well-documented memory failure.
It's all fun and games until someone starts eating crayons...
Daily photography is important to me because it's the compilation of little moments woven together that form the fabric of our lives (now I sound like a Cotton commercial).

And also because my kids are so darn cute!
We broke out the baby pool and celebrated the beautiful summer weather
Point being that this is kind of a sorry excuse for a blog post because there is no story, no witty captions, no controversial issues addressed...
Josie celebrated her newest skill: blowing bubbles
...but there are photos!
