False Labor Day

While I was not too pleased to be kicked out of the hospital for not being in active labor
I was glad I did not obey hospital guidelines about no food (-;

And it was a pleasure to have my Andy right there to make me laugh

So after relieving our sweet, sweet neighbor of "boy duty", our little band of 5 decided we needed some fun ... so we hit up the local snack shack.
 Lately, Ash has decided he really wants to try and be a big boy.  Some days are better than others; but I love him so much!
 Aiden is my straight arrow: same personality since he was born.  He's so special to me!
 Andy and Olive Oyle chatting it up about colonial architecture
 And despite the failed attempt to have a baby, it really WAS a beautiful day!
 And the all-American fried food was so good ... and now Mom and I don't ever want some again!
 But dessert was worth waiting for!

County Fair

We've been having a lot of fun this summer with Olive Oyle here - either having lazy days out in the backyard on the swing or busy days at the pool, park, in town or like last weekend, at the fair!

Waiting for the pig races to begin

Pigs racing!

Mom, NOT eating funnel cake!
(And yes, it was amazingly delicious!)

The petting zoo

Ashton is a slushie-lover

And there's nothin' like good, greasy fair food!

My All-American boy observing his favorite fair animals: the sheep!

For Dad

I know it has been so hard for Mom to be so far away from you for so long.  I cannot express how appreciative I am to have her here and how grateful I am to you for sharing her this summer.  She misses you too!
