Fair Time

Right before school began we made it to the CC fair...which we missed last year!

Hello....funnel cakes.
Addie actually gave me a hard time because I was picking the snack they would get.
until she tried it.

Nana to the rescue with crowd control.  It was so crowded the day we went.

Living the dream...

Well just like that I sent my little baby boy to kindergarten.
(how can this be?!?)

This was at orientation the week before...

The big morning!

OMG...good thing I wasn't there!

Belt Test!

So apparently in martial arts to earn your next belt you take a "belt test."  Sam had his first one yesterday.  It was fairly intense and included several different rounds of  testing.  But the best part came at the end!h
If you have time, watch them in order...if you're strapped for time...just watch the second one!

Addie--Second grade!

Not so sure I'm ready for Addie to surpass me in grades...but alas...second grade began today!
And, to quote Addie, the day was AWESOME!

When the other kids busted out during the photo shoot...

Jillian Lindsey

Michelle and Steve had their baby!
And it was a girl!
My mom predicted (yet again) the gender and date of the baby's arrival!
Talk about a mother's intuition...
You can find all the details over on her blog in a few days, or weeks!
In the meantime, suffice it to say...
that I've been waiting about 7 years for yesterday to arrive and it was everything I hoped for!
xox Jillian & my favorite new Mommy and Daddy

Meet Jillian!

These are my just my phone pics... More to be added later

That time of year....

Well...since no one is having babies today...sigh...
I'll show you what the floor of my den has been looking like...
too my defense...half of that is Addie's supplies...

And that's my to-do list for "before school" can see I've conveniently highlighted the things I've completed in yellow....

 We've squeezed in a few trips to the zoo this summer too!
And fed a giraffe (one of our newest zoo features we love!)

And checked out the new carousel.  Also so amazing!  

Special thanks to our zoo chaperone Nana!  We couldn't go without you!

Splashpark with Megs...

loveyou and yourgood friend Megan braved the splashpark with us recently.  It was actually nice...not too hot..

There's her son Eli...
Here's the best group shot I could muster
