There is nothing better than a day on the lake!

Which is blobbier? Don't worry, I got passed by a baby turtle on my ride.

The Fisherman and the Lounger.

Found this cutie in the grill.  I love her, but she is probably dead now. (Not due to cooking)  Julianna?!?

Baby BFFs

I love that tons of my friends have/are having children!  Silas will have playmates galore, regardless if they are all over the country.  More vacations!  Here are some of his future BFFs.  (Assuming he will not be a huge brat that no one will want to play with.)    Appearing in order of age...

Superman and Bear

Liam and Emma Grace (not yet pictured)

Tucker Scott

Jack Carter

Lucy Pearl

Baby Oliver

Why are all of these ultrasounds so much better than the photos I received of a white blob labeled right arm?

There are tons more prego people and new moms that I love and that have wonderfully beautiful children that I would jump at the opportunity to have play dates with, but the chances of that happening (due to distance or me just being terrible at at staying in touch) are so slim, I will stick to the shoe-ins.  

And now cousins...the ones that if he has no other friends will have to claim him anyways.

Yay, kids! (Clearly it is summer...I don't throw that around too much in the heat of the school year.)

There has been a lot to celebrate around here lately.  

  • Daron got a promotion at work!  
  • School is out!  
  • Our anniversary is this week!  
  • Father's Day is approaching!  
  • Silas is on his way!  (Roughly speaking) 
The new office!

We decided to take a day trip to Charlotte for some shopping and dining.  We went to IKEA and some other shops nearby.  We also went to my favorite restaurant, Nakatos.  There are only three locations, one back home in Springfield and both of the others in Charlotte.  It is nice to have my favorite food without the long trip.  Now, how to make these a celebration for Daron too?...
