So much to say...

Every year I feel July is the month where I get backed up with adventures and pictures to share.  I guess it makes since with birthdays and anniversaries and vacations.  I sat here wondering how to share all that has happened and just decided to do a quick run down with pictures and short explanations....not really how I like to do things (short) but it is better than getting further behind!  So here it goes.

11 years and counting!  Joel's Aunt and Uncle took the kids for a night and we got to have a wonderful time out.  We went to a local winery for a tour, dinner, and tasting.  We loved the place!   For anyone in the area, Paradise Springs Winery is a must!

 We also got another round of visitors...Uncle Caleb and Auntie Amanda from Australia.  After looking through our pictures it doesn't seem we were very good at capturing them in many pictures.  However, we did plenty of sight seeing which I have lots of photos of!  This is a picnic at "Gravely Park" where we got to watch planes take off right over us - it was awesome.  The plane looks way too far away in this picture.  Trust me, it was great!

 We were very thankful for these sprinklers after a hot day of sight seeing in DC!

I love hippos :).  We are at the Museum of Natural History.
 We realized that the Red Skins training camp is in the same town we live in.  Once that was discovered, Joel, Uncle Caleb, and the kids were out the door in record time.  Jesse used his sweet smile and puppy dog eyes to score some autographs.

One of my favorite days was our chill day at the pool.  Despite our lack of pictures with Caleb and Amanda, our kids adore them and Josie was all over Uncle Caleb's beard.  The day they left the kids kept saying how much they missed them.  Amanda is a wonderful and talented photographer and we are overjoyed at some shots she took for us.  We can't wait to share the final products, including some with the girls in my wedding dress!

  1. Love the pics and seeing what you guys have been up to. And I LOVE that you took pictures of the girls in your wedding dress. I saw that idea on Pinterest and am holding onto for another year or so. Can't wait to see yours!!!
