It's Been a Long Time

So I know it has been a long time and I realize that it is 6:30 in the morning. But for some reason I cannot sleep:)

We have had an eventful past couple of weeks. John Hunter and I flew to Maryland with Carson and Jen to visit Beth and Lucy (Stein too) for Lucy's first birthday! We had an early flight last Friday and drove to Louisville in the floods. The boys did great and slept till we got to the airport. However that was the last time they slept until the went to be that night.

We got to visit with my Aunt Pat and Uncle Alan and have brunch because we were starving:) Then we just played and hung out with the kiddos. Lucy got her first haircut and looks so cute and the kids played so well together.
It was fun all being together. Carson is such a joy and his little face always makes me smile. Lucy is the funniest child and she knows it. She loves to laugh and she loves to make you laugh. John Hunter got 3 teeth while we were there and was a little clinging. But he loves the kids and all the different toys:) And what kid doesn't love a birthday party. Thanks Beth, Stein, and Lucy for having us!

When we got home we needed some daddy time. Although John Hunter was obsessed with "Momee" (he sounds like a little French kid when he says it) he wanted his dad. So what do dads and boys do. They mow the lawn. I can see in the near future this is what our summer days will look like. I am thinking we need to put a call into Uncle John to see when we can get on the lawn crew:)
We also had some great visitors this week. The grand Auntie B and Uncle Richard came for a visit and who doesn't love that! The spoiled John Hunter with all the attention and he loved every moment of it. They also took some amazing shots of him on the swing. I will put those on here later:)

We don't have much on the docket for this weekend. Thunderstorms and cold weather but hopefully we will get into something fun. Hope all is well!
