getting caught up

 

 

There’s been a multitude of events going on around here lately, and I hope to get caught up on things soon. Mostly, we’ve been tackling a lot of these…

 

let’s just say this already sleep-deprived mama of 2 has had her hands full this past month moving, unpacking, organizing, hosting out of town guests, and road tripping to the san juan’s to be a bridesmaid in one of my best friend’s wedding…. all while doing my best to spend time with my hh (handsome hubby) and keep a toddler and newborn alive and well… whew.  I need a nap.  no seriously, I do.

 

So anyway, in our *leisure time* we’ve been exploring our new little town and is it fabulous.  Did I mention we are 10 minutes away from the sound?

Yikes, that boy needs a haircut!

We got together with some close friends the other night… One of noah’s co-workers and his family.  They are such dear friends to our family.  Their little girl is ethan’s age and watching the two of them grow up together is so sweet.  Pictures like this make me realize how blessed we are.

a family fourth

Just a few belated pictures from our Fourth of July weekend spent with family. The weather was fabulous, and Ethan enjoyed the unending love and attention from his mimi and poppa, and Aunt Sme (“smee”…Noah’s longstanding nickname for his fantastic sister)

Ethan spent most of the weekend being a complete ham.

A lot of time is spent out on the patio during the summer sunbathing, barbecuing, and partying…

Delicious food

Ethan could not be bothered to look at the camera.  Max wins every time.

Then there were other family members and friends stopping by.  Add to that: two lovable dogs, some farm animals, swimming, and a garden to dig in, and it was a weekend that will not be soon forgotten.
