Lola and Samantha build the tallest tower ever! This is also the face Lola gives when she hears, "Smile, Lola!"
The little munchkin in her pigtails
Family reading time. All the Whompton girls are members of the St. Louis County Library summer reading challenge, so we're reading books (and Raina is marking them on the reading logs) all the time.
For some reason, Raina really has started to shy away from the camera. We have to catch her by surprise!
This red-tailed hawk and its mate built a massive nest in our neighbor's tree. (Here it's resting on our house.) We hear their screeching cries daily and Samantha has been lucky enough to see them hunt as a pair. So cool! Needless to say, the bunny population of our yard has dropped to zero.
Mommy and Lola
Daddy, Lola, and her favorite lovey, Kitty.
Trying for a cute picture of the girls ... and we get a cute picture of the girls, just not the one we intended!
