Playing in the rain!

We had a lot of rain this summer, it was actually very crazy. One day we were all very tired of being in the house so we took a walk in the rain! It was very, very fun - the kiddos had umbrellas and rain boots and they got as wet as they could splashing in all the puddles! We laughed because we went just one street to far and Evs was fussing so out he went and then the rest of the kiddos piled in the stroller :) I think it was not long after that I bought a double!

Happy 4th!

I think our little WG fourth of july festivites could be one of my favorite things about our area. I love walking down the street to the parade, grilling out with neighbors and then walking down the street to the fireworks. This year we even threw in walking to the carnival and pool! We ended up having my family and a few friends over for a little cook out and it was such a fun night!
We had a great time at the parade, I love dressing everyone up in there red, white and blue! My sweet, sweet boys. I love that Connor will sometimes be really excited to pose for pictures with his brother in them :) I remember crying at the pumpkin patch last year (pregnant) because Connor wouldn't have to pose for pictures by himself anymore. Hahahah!!

This one totally makes me smile, not only are they little buddies they love them some Evs :)

 Nonny, G, Caitlin, came to the parade too, it was actually a really nice day. It was warm but not too bad considering last July it was like 350* :) 

Overall it was a wonderful day! We had a great time celebrating and everyone made it to the fireworks and then we were out!

The Lake!

We were so lucky and were able to take three trips to the lake this summer! We always look so forward to it, it is such a nice little getaway. The first time we went with Nana, Grandpa and Nonny! It was a quick weekend but we had a great time.  

Evy wasn't too sure what he thought about the life jacket the first time we put it one, but he was OUT the minute the boat started moving. It was really funny. He slept the whole time we drove and woke up after we parked.

Connor was a swimming fool this summer, he loved it! He liked to stand on the back of the boat and play with the ropes and buoys. It was pretty funny he is a mover that little boy of mine. 
All smiles with Nonny! I felt a little bad for the birdie because it was a little warm at times but he was a trooper! He slept for a little while and hung out while everyone swam :) Next year I am sure he will be jumping off the boat with Connor man!

Off to dinner! The little jon jon that Evan has on is pretty much my favorite thing for him. Aunt Steph got them for him and I think he was seriously in one of them twice a week the whole summer, so cute and easy!

The second trip to the lake was our annual trip with the Burch's! We weren't sure if they were going to be able to make it, but we were so excited to see them! Connor and Elsie had such a fun time playing, we couldn't believe how big she was! It was fun to watch her, she and E are almost exactly a year apart so it was fun to see what he was going to be getting into next year :)

The birdie and I spent a lot of time lounging and snoozing on the boat. I mean, does it get more relaxed than that!?

LOVE it when babies play with there toes! We went over to the "cold pool" after the boat for everyone to swim around. It was still a little too cold for Evs to enjoy!

The last trip of the summer was our annual trip with Nana and Grandpa! Nana and I went down a few days early and had a great time with the kiddos. It is so fun to just relax and do whatever Connor wants to do for a few days without any of the distractions of home.

We went to Miner Mikes and I think Connor, Nana and I went on the roller coaster about 12 times. It was really, really fun. It gets me so excited thinking about taking a trip to Disneyworld one of these days!

We wore Evs out and he was falling asleep in Nana's arms while Connor and I were swimming, it was really really cute :)

Once the boys came down we had to split up as our little room wasn't quite big enough for the four of us. Connor and Daddy slept up in the loft while the birdie and I slept in our room. A few mornings he woke up early to eat and then fell back asleep with me. I mean, I sent Bj this picture one morning and said I couldn't get out of bed because this sweet boy was so sweetly snuggled with me :)

The best part of the trip was BIG SURF!! We always have fun, but this year it was SO fun. Connor was big enough to do a couple of the water slides and it was way too fun. We were like a revolving door we went up and down no less than 30 times.

The boys taking a break in the lazy river! We also enjoyed the wave pool and baby area.

It was such a fun year, it was so fun having Evan with us this year to enjoy all of the activities. It will be so fun next year when he is running all over the place with Connor too :)

More Summer!

You may notice I love to take pictures of sleeping babies, I can't help it. I really don't know if there is much sweeter than a sleeping baby. Just sprawled out without a care in the world. I love it!  
We took G to Grants Farm with us this summer and had a great time! Connor loves to feed the goats. It was crazy though for the first time EVER they weren't that hungry! We seriously had to throw some bottles back with milk left in them, we couldn't get a goat to drink.

Brotherly love while G and I enjoyed our free beer sample :)

The boys and I hung out at home while Daddy went to Indy this year. I wasn't sure how it was going to work with a brand new nursing baby so we decided to stay home - and we had a great little weekend! Connor was testing out his headphones. I can't believe it won't be long before Connor is joining us at the race!

Momma and her boys, these two make my heart so incredibly happy.

Future Indy car driver?! :)

More Grants Farm!

Love that happy smile and those big old blue eyes.

We didn't get to the pool as much as we usually do, we went a few times and it was almost too chilly! I laughed and said I should have taken advantage this year while Evy was too small to go anywhere :)

These two pictures crack me up, Evy isn't a really fussy baby but he is when he gets tired. Uncle Davey took these and I think that boy was upset because he wanted his momma :)

The Magic House! I want one of these rooms in our house - it was all tire rubber, Connor would have played in there for hours if I let it.

Shopping with Nonny, I adore this picture :)

Future Bluegrass Musician? He calls this his "cintar"

We did swim lessons this summer and they were a HIT! So much so I am hoping to find some indoor ones this winter.

Playing trucks together - I can't wait for more of this in our future :)
