For the second week in a row, Peeper and I have found ourselves in A & M's backyard until all hours, enjoying a campfire and s'mores with them, T's family and a couple of other folks that we don't really know. (Different ones each week.)
If we're going to make a habit of this, we're going to have to find a way to tuck these little girls in and let them snooze while we visit.

I took Peeper to the doctor this morning, and got some antibiotics for her ear infection. Yippee.
I've got an appointment bright and too-damn-early tomorrow with my doctor, to try to score some for myself.

Behind the blogging scenes here, we've been dealing with some second-hand sadness and tragedy lately.
You know our MOMS Club friend A, mom to H and brand-new-baby-N. Three days after N was born, A's 18 year old sister M was in a car accident with five other teens, and despite the valiant efforts of many doctors, including a couple of surgeries, a few days later she lost her fight.
On Saturday, her twin brother graduated from high school, accepting her diploma on behalf of the family, and today they laid her to rest.
I attended the funeral, along with T and her husband (who's been good friends with A's husband for years), and it was as heartbreaking as you might imagine.
If it's your thing, please send your prayers of comfort, positive energy, healing light, and peaceful mojo to M's family and friends as they move through this most difficult of times.

We made a Target run today, and since little girls' shoes were on sale, we picked up a pair of white sandals and a pair of Crocs for Peeper.
We also had to take these and another pair out of the cart and put them back on the shelf. She would have been happy to have tried on every pair in the store.
Peeper and I picked strawberries with MOMS Club this morning. Due to some last-minute cancellations, it ended up just being us and one other mom with her two girls, but we enjoyed it, and got about 4.5 pounds of berries!

Peeper had her semi-annual dental check up today, and she did great! She was very cooperative, and Dr. C. says we're doing a great job brushing!
Also, double-congratulations to Dr. C. whose twin girls were born in February!
And, because last time we were there, we ended up killing some time at the kid gym down the road, guess what? Evidently, that's going to be part of our dentist visit routine from now on.
