August~Special Guests

The month of August started with a special two week visit from Nana. Nana was kind enough to stayed with our Andi, while Ed and I took Eddie to IdleWild for two days.  After our return from Idlewild, Nana and I spent some time with the kids. We went to the ice cream shop, took in Lake Farm Park, got our pictures done at JCPenny's (photos to come) and had some fun in the pool. Nana also helped me reorganize the toy room and all of Eddie drawers in his room, not to mention the endless amounts of laundry she did for me! 
While Nana was in town, we had another special guest stop by, Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob only stopped by for a very short time on his way home from a sale but he manage to squeeze in a picture with our little man. We enjoyed having Nana here with us and we were happy to see Uncle Bob! We love our special guests.

Here are a few pictures of Nana and Eddie:

 And to finish off the month we got to be special guests at Peepaw's high school football team's game at the Brown's Stadium. Eddie and Ed were given a field pass to hang out with Peepaw and watch the game up close. Watching a game on the big field was a neat experience for all of us!
 Andi even found a great seat in the shade around the 50 yard line! And she was treated like a very special guest by all who were seated around us!

July~In Review

What happened to July? Really? What the heck happened to July? I can't believe we are already two weeks into August and that I go back to work in just one short week. July felt like the fast and the furious around here as did my maternity leave. And although our time off together is coming to an end I am looking forward to fall, football Sundays, cooking meals for the week ahead, the routine of the work week, and the weekends with my family after a long week at work. I am not, however, looking forward to taking both of my children back to daycare :( 
During the month of July we were able to finish up our t-ball season, take a trip to the beach, make the haul up to my husband's family's cabin in PA, and finish off the month with a trip to IdleWild Amusement Park. Our sweet little Andi did not make the trip to the beach or to IdleWild (thank you Nana for coming to stay with Andi), but she did make her first trip to the cabin with us and was an angel pretty much the whole time. Here are some pictures of our summer:
