Recently Liam has been working on his dance moves. It is hard to catch it on camera, because once he sees the camera he stops what he is doing and gives a big cheesy smile. This video I was able to get some dancing and some cheesiness. It is so nice because Liam really seems to understand what we are saying now and follows some instructions. I feel like he just soaks everything around him. He is becoming such a big boy now. Well enough writing. Enjoy the video.

Roland and I have been watching the show Pushing Daises, and have been craving pie. So I made quiche the other day and had some extra pie crust so we decided to make an apple pie. It turned out so well. I haven't made a pie in a long time and it was fun to make something other than cookies for dessert. So here is my pretty apple pie.

Because Dallas is so hot we have been looking for various ways to keep cool. We have gone to various lakes, the pool, and a spray park not far from our house. The weather is pretty hot, but it is nice to know we have places to go to cool down a bit. Liam loves the water and so he enjoys all the trips to the pool and lakes.

Over the past few months I have felt the desire to try new foods. Some of the reasons are:
- I feel like I make the same meals over and over again
- The need to incorporate more vegetables and fruit into my diet
- Just for a fun thing to do
I talked this over with Roland and we decided on our weekly grocery shopping trip we
would pick one vegetable or fruit that we had not tried or had not had in a while. Depending on the food chosen we will either plan a meal that includes it or just try the new food. I also decided it would be fun to blog about it. So each week I will feature one item and how we chose to eat it.
Also when after I have made a dish our whole family will rate it out of 5.
Week 1: Cauliflower!
Cauliflower is a food that I have definitely tried before and used to eat a lot when I was younger, but have not included in my diet for a long time. Although it is a lot like broccoli it is really fun to have every now and again. So I decided to look up a recipe that featured the wonderful cauliflower. Here it is:

So we are back! Liam and I finally have joined Roland again in Dallas. We had a wonderful trip to New Hampshire where we were able to do a lot of fun things and see a lot of cool people. The pictures are kind of out of order, but I will try to make sense of them. July 2nd. Fireworks in Hancock. We had quite the crew. Liam was not a big fan of the loud noise.
Were the fireworks were held. Isn't New Hampshire beautiful?
Swimming with Grandpa. Liam loved swimming in Center Pond and Granite Lake, as I thought he would.
Liam in his super cool floatie!
I love this picture because Liam and Geoffrey are almost making the same face.

Beautiful view from my friend Molly's wedding reception.
My best friend Molly got married and I got to be there. I was a great ceremony and I had a wonderful time. I am so happy for her and her new husband Pedro.
The happy couple. Most of my pictures were kind of blurry.
Liam "feeding" himself.
I got it all under control Mom
Liam with his great-great grandma. She turned 99 when we were there. Amazing woman. Liam was not very happy in this picture.
Lets go down the slide!
