Summer in Review

Summer was here and gone in the blink of an eye. Of course I had every intention of blogging frequently about all the fun things we were doing, but that didn't happen. So here I sit a week after Labor Day throwing all of our summer updates into 1 posting.

In July we met up at Fair Oaks Farm in northwest Indiana with my BFF, Carrie, and her little boy, Brett (who you've read a lot about on here) and my friend Cathy from college and her 2 little boys, Chris and Sam. It was really a cool place to visit. We saw a baby cow being born, ate delicious grilled cheese, and played with their farm themed toys. Evan's favorite part though was driving miniature tractors. He was not happy when we had to leave the tractors behind to go home!

One morning we went to a place called Pump it Up with my friend, Kim, and her 2 boys, Alex and Benjamin. It's an indoor party place with lots of different inflatables for the kids to play on. I was worried that Evan would be hesitant about going on them, but he loved every moment! (Unfortunately my camera battery was in the red so I only took a few pictures.)

Evan and I took a trip to Indy to hang out with Carrie and Brett (and of course Steve too!). We visited the Indianapolis Zoo, which I have never been too. It was really nice!

"Hey, Evan, just follow me. I'll show you where to go."

"Did you see the animal? It was over THERE!"

Playing Brett's baby-baby grand piano. He asked me to take his picture.

We took Evan to see the Wiggles in concert again. At first he didn't know what to think of everything, but after a little while he was completely engrossed in it. At the end of the show he kept asking to see the Wiggles again!

And finally, here's some random cute pictures that I couldn't leave out:

After church one Sunday Evan insisted on wearing Rick's tie and asked me to take his picture.

Evan is wearing my high heels and again wanted his picture taken...

and with my green purse.

Evan has recently realized it's funny when he shakes his booty. He's all smiles at the beginning of the video then all of a sudden says, "No take picture. No look! No, no look!"

What a ham!!

Looks like you had fun! Evan is getting big. We tried to get Annalise into the Wiggles, but she looked at us like we were nuts.

Ben missing regular blogs from you. Hope you'll get your other site stories back up too!
