There was a little shopping area in Sedona with tons of statues and fountains. Maggie learned how to throw a coin into a fountain and made a wish--then proceeded to do just that about 50 times! Her first handful of wishes: Apple, Tree, Person, Mirror. She might need a little lesson on proper wishing.
The kids with red rock:
Our condo complex had a game room:
We celebrated Grandma's birthday:
Maggie spent 2.2 seconds in the pool the whole week. She mostly wanted to run around the perimeter and scream at her dad: Daddy! What is this? Daddy! Can you help me? Daddy! Is this sharp? Daddy.....!

Sorry about my voice in this one. I was talking on the phone while trying to catch how cute Caroline was being at the same time.

M-A-O-U. That spells marvelous (pronounced marbelous). Maggie is way into spelling things and knowing "what does that spell?". When you read her a story she follows along the sentences with her finger (never coordinating the word with what I'm saying at the time).
As Patrick is packing for our trip to AZ he yells to me, "honey, are you going to bring that breast feeding tarp with us? It would be good for the plane". Tarp??? Um, do you mean a breast feeding cover?
Mommy, you are being rude and foolish.
Caroline loves her bath. She's most smiley at this time. She doesn't like putting her pj's on after the bath and goes from being such a happy baby to screaming her head off.
Maggie: Mommy, I want to show you a puppet show.
Mommy: ok....Well, that's not a puppet show sweetie. That's just you throwing Dora at me.
Ciara, Maggie's cousin, is crying at a restaurant due to some dispute with her parents. Maggie is carefully watching: Daddy, is Ciara traumatized?
Daddy? Can we get in a rocket ship and go into outer space and see the moon?
Caroline's 2 month well baby check up: July9th. Height 22 1/4" 40%, Weight 10lbs 7oz 40%. I'm actually surprised she's that small. She seems like such a monster compared to Maggie at that age.
Daddy, you are my boyfriend.
Caroline is very demanding. Every time I set her down she immediately starts to cry. She wants to be held all the time! Maggie was just content to sit where ever you set her for long periods of time. I simply can't complain about anything this baby does though--she sleeps like a champ and that is THE most important thing.

Chatting on the phone:
Patrick likes to prop Caroline up on the couch--and she actually likes it. Maggie then proceeds to attack (erh, um, love her).

Caroline watched the preparations from her cozy vibrating chair on the kitchen table.
Later that afternoon we played around a bit. We could not get a good picture of both kids together--one or both of them were always looking silly:
Then Maggie snagged Caroline's baby legs and put them on to play:
