Our "Backyard"!!

Alexa has taken to calling the balcony off our dining room, her "backyard". She seems to be content with it most of the time...which is great as we don't have a real backyard to call our own at this time in our lives! She loves to play out there, as you can see from these pictures, and she's not afraid to get dirty...but that's what laundry detergent is for, right??!! Why stop the fun just because of a little dirt?!!

Strawberry Festival

This morning, we ventured to the Strawberry Festival in Starlight, Indiana. We've been wanting to go for a couple years now as it's right by Huber Farms where we go pumpkin picking every year, but just haven't made it...until now. Thankfully, my friend Amanda reminded me about it, otherwise we would have missed out yet again this year! Anyways, it was fun to get outside on a beautiful day and enjoy a nice, BIG portion of strawberry shortcake. I unfortunately did not take a picture of said huge portion...but for $3.50, you could build your own strawberry shortcake and pile on as many strawberries as you wanted, topped by as much whipped cream as your little heart desired. It was oh so delicious!!

It has begun....

...aaaahhhh, the lazy days of summer! Oh how we have missed thee!! This was the first swimsuit day of the summer for us and we hope there will be MANY more to come! Alexa had a blast playing with her best buddy "Nay-Nay" in his "kitty pool". (I think Alexa thought the little pool was actually supposed to be for the kitties, not herself & Nathan, the KIDDIES!)

Thank you!!

Since having Payton, our family has been extremely blessed by the willingness of others to share their time, talents and FOOD with us!! :-) We want all our friends who brought us meals, visited us in the hospital and have helped out since having the baby was born to know how much we love and appreciate each of you!

Back to Life...Back to Reality!!

My mom left to return to Canada this morning. It's back to reality now. It's been soooo nice having her here to help out and to spoil us all rotten. I'm not sure how I'm going to get two kids out of the house without an extra set of hands...but I'm sure I'll figure it out. Thanks mom for everything you did...we couldn't have done it without you and are so grateful for you taking the time from your already busy life to help us out. We love and miss you too much!! :-)
