Catching up...

I have really been a slacker lately! I hope you all will forgive me... please?! We've just been hanging out & enjoying the summer. Nothing much really going on around here. Thankfully every one's been fairly healthy. Although Daddy had a nasty ear infection that landed him in the ER a couple of weeks ago, & now I'm brewing one (they're so NOT fun) & I had a lovely gallbladder attack the other night. Oh well, at least the kids are healthy! Only typical bumps & bruises that accompany summer!

Here's a few photos to catch up on the past few days. Last weekend I traded off days of helping my Mom & aunt's out with decorating. I went & helped set up on Friday for a reception while my cousin Erica came up & stayed with the girls. She has a little boy & girl, so the kids had a great time playing with their older cousins (Leslie & Jake). Then on Saturday it was a repeat of Friday, except that I stayed with the kids while Erica went to help decorate. They all had a really great time playing together. It was quite "busy" in our house those two days (ie: noisy, cluttered!)!

Oh, while all the little one's were here, we found out that our kids are miraculous! They were walking on water!!! Let me clarify...




They were having a blast running "on" the water ;0) We recently got a big fish tank (more on that to come in a future post!) & Jon filled it up to make sure it didn't leak before we put it in the house. So they were running through the drain off water from the tank.

Here's a couple more shots from the weekend...

Gabby couldn't wait to feed Emma!

Little miss skinny legs showing her stuff!

Sharing a root beer float with Daddy!

Happy Father's day, Daddy!
We were supposed to have the photo shoot with the Littlest Heroes Project this weekend, but with the weather supposed to be HOT we decided to reschedule, considering its an outside shoot & Vaeh (& the rest of us) don't handle the heat too well. I'm waiting to hear back about that.
On Sunday, however, we're going to celebrate my Grandpa's 80th birthday!! We're having a picnic type get together with our family to celebrate! I can't wait! I promise I'll put up pictures from this weekend, & when we get our fish tank up & running I'll put pics up of that, too!
Hope everyone else is doing well. Our little friend Elijah is home & recovering quite quickly from spine surgery! Also, our friend Krista is scheduled to have her little man July 1st! How exciting! Also, please continue to keep a beautiful little guy that Amber & her family have taken in. He remains in the NICU.
