Ten on Wednesday because I was too tired on Tuesday

1. After asking Mike for months (fine, nagging), he built this for Brady and Lucy. You can see here in this picture that it was getting a lot of love and attention by Brady and his friends. I even saw some of those Dada's playing on it.

2. My Mom was here for several days late last week into the weekend, we had a wonderful time with her, Brady and Lucy loved all the extra attention of course and I am grateful for all the help with them, the cleaning and other chores.

3. Lucy has, in the past week, become very mobile. Rolling all over the place. I tried to "illustrate" in this picture her movement in a matter of seconds. She was in the far right corner of that yellow blanket on the floor and I turned my back and then she was under the swing. Do you see her? Time to think about (re)baby proofing.

4. While my Mom was here we went to Lebanon, OH, about 30 mins. from her to visit with my Godmother, Marian who lives in Chicago. She was in Cincinnati for the long weekend. Below are some pictures with her. My Mom and Marian went to college together and have been dear friends ever since.

5. My new favorite picture of Brady.
6. One of our playgroup friends, EJ, is moving away. We are so very sad. But at the same time, so happy for the Sanchez family, they are moving home to Springfield, IL and will be surrounded my their families. What a blessing. We wish them the best life has to offer.

7. A few weeks ago (I've been so behind on the blogging thing), we had the great pleasure of meeting Sarah, her brother, Ephraim and their Mama, Erin. I've been reading Erin's blog for a few months now, they were in Dayton for 2 weeks and they came to Possum Creek Farm with us one beautiful morning. What a wonderful family, all full of big personality and kind hearts. Thanks for meeting up with us, Erin!!
Brady, Katie, Sarah and Hannah
This picture makes me laugh because this is what Ephraim did the entire time we were with them! Running and running and running! Just what 18 month olds do best!

8. My sister signed up to run her second marathon and it just so happens that it's the Air Force Marathon here in Dayton, Ohio!!! I'm so excited that we will get to watch this one live and in person!

9. The last weekend in July, my best friends from high school are getting together to celebrate being 30 years young. It's going to be a fantastic weekend!! One of those friends, Brenna, is celebrating 30 today! Happy Birthday BK. I met Brenna when we were in the 3rd grade. And Kelly turns 3o on May 31st, I also met Kelly in the 3rd grade. Dana has a few more weeks of being in her 20's, July 17th is her big day! Dana and I met in the 5th grade! And then later down the road Dana met Kelly and Brenna and the rest is history! Brenna lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, Kelly lives in Portland, OR and Dana lives right up the road from me in Columbus.

10. Oh and lastly, if you haven't heard, Mike's deployment was pushed back 'til late August give or take a few days. We are so happy to have him home for the summer but so very sad that he will miss Halloween, Thanksgiving, Lucy's 1st Birthday, Christmas, our anniversary and his 30th birthday. The military has sent us on a run around the past two months, goodness!!

Love all the new pics and latest news...Brady's so handsome with his new haircut! But seriously, let's get to the important stuff here, where did you get that adorably awesome dress you're wearing in the picture with your godmother?!

Lori said...

Sarah ... laughing ... since I'm responsible for the dress ... it's from Forever 21 and not expensive at all! Jenny does look adorably awesome in it too!

Sarah and Mrs. McCarthy- I finally getting on the blog and was screaming AHHHHHHHHh that DRESS!!! SOOOOO cute!

And Jenny- you always have the best clothes! and you are sooo darn skinny! ;-) you didn't have Lucy just 5 months ago! It's a lie!!!
