Those innocent vegetables never stood a chance. The birds had no place to hide. And those flowers... well let's not go there.
Well if you didn't guess already, it was indeed a hail storm that blew through the neighborhood. I'd say it was about 1/2" on average. Doesn't sound big, but when it comes down like someone winning the jackpot at a pachinko parlor, for 5 minutes straight, it does some damage.
It's interesting seeing the flood that starts to come down the street during a hail storm. It's intense! Looks like foam, but it's not... all hail and some melted water. It was 85 degrees that day after all.
All that remains of some of the veggies are 1" sticks coming out of the ground. Tops of trees look like winter. At least it grows back and the hail wasn't large enough to damage the roof, siding, or deck... They do have baseball size hail out on the plains you know.

Here she is with a full senbei. Doesn't it look huge?
Ok, now just a half.
Now, 2 quarters.
She eventually finished the enitre half. We're so proud of her. I think we'll be bringing these senbeis with us so she can snack whereever we are.

We started Saya on some finger foods not too long ago. The tofu didn't work out so we tried a new organic cereal snack I picked up at the store the other day. She can't quite get them in her mouth yet but it's fun to watch her try. The cereal sticks to her hands as she tries to pick them up and she throws them on the floor. The dogs love the extra treats:)

I thought we could avoid it but sure enough it's here. I seem to have it pretty bad and poor Saya has diarrhea. I feel so bad for her but she is still smiling which is a good sign. We're hoping it will pass soon. Daddy is taking good care of both of us.

Saya just started to crawl tonight. She used to just scoot backwards but is now progressing forward. It's exciting to see her move around but also quite scary to think that she won't be in one place anymore. Baby gates are now a must!
I let her play with her plate this morning and she loved it. I washed it thoroughly beforehand so that we don't have food flying everywhere. Here she is holding her plate and pounding the table with it.
Had to taste it first.
Where'd the plate go? Oh yeah, I flung it on the floor.
Let me take a look at the plate again before I start pounding it on the table.

We went to Q's Restaurant at the Boulderado Hotel for a nice breakfast. Saya was well behaved and loved to look around. She was happy looking at the family next to us and also playing with the table cloth. We also had a chance to use our Clean Diner that we got for her a while back. She looks so cute in it.
Yummy doggie toy ears.
Why are you taking so many pictures of me mom?
Daddy wanted me to play with Sophie the giraffe.
Baby pic again. Doesn't she look adorable in her Clean Diner. She wasn't able to touch any part of the dirty high chair so mommy was very happy (mommy is a germ freak).
Baby and daddy (always have to take a daddy pic wherever we go).
Tired of toys and wanted to stick her hand in her mouth.
Mommy and Saya.
Mommy and Saya at the Pearl Street Mall.
Mommy asking balloon man to make a little something for Saya.
Balloon man asked if he should make something adorable or durable. After seeing Saya's 2 teeth, he said we should go with durable.
A durable chili pepper that is:)
