Dude really honed in his "cheeeeeese!" skills
Daddad was with us for the parade!
We took some strolls (I think Michael was running with Brooks for this one??)
We had fun playdates with Gracie and Addie
We snuggled and giggled
We played with lots (and LOTS) of roly polies
Wore appropriate eyewear
Learned what happens when fruit snacks sit in a hot car
Had a (super unsuccessful) garage sale
Snuggled and cheesed some more
Went swimming at Jake's grandparents'
Played tourist at the zoo
Hung with the cousins
Hit the zoo with Grace
And got tuckered out
Noelle spent the night at Grandma and Papa's with Hannah
And hit Lamb's Farm
We scored big at a couple garage sales
And posed at Cantigny
Enjoyed yet another parade
Hung with our new buddies, the Orrs
Hit the zoo again with the VanBockel girls!
Brooks and I got caught in the rain (twice!)
And snuggled a little more
Aunt Kelsey and Uncle B came (and they'll be here for good, soon!!)
And, of course, we had a blast at Super Tots camp
Nana sent us some amazing dresses that she made
Brooks engaged in some crib shenanigans
We sported awesome goggles for swimming
Had yet another awesome Investortools picnic (no tornado weather this time--woohoo!)
Noelle had her preschool physical!
More playdates with the Kaufmans
Noelle's physical led to an EKG (all's normal!!!)
We found a new awesome picture spot
And even got to see Uncle Steve!
We clowned around
And I got a new sewing room!!!
We posed with more of Nana's wares
And generally loved life.
Whew. Not a bad summer at all (and it's not over yet!!!).
