Summer Catch-up

Hey, look who blogged! That is how it feels these days. When I find myself telling people I have two boys- ages 1 and 2, they sort of give me a half puzzled half empathetic look and usually say something like "Oh, well you must have your hands full!" While, my hands are certainly full (literally most days) so is my heart. These sweet boys love their mommy and I'm a pretty big fan of theirs too. But in all honesty, having a one a two year old is just as busy as it sounds. Hence the intermittent blog hiatus. Nonetheless, I have been able to snap a few pics here and there over the past few months, so here is a look at what we've been up to lately. Also there's a good chance, some of these pics could be repeat from previous posts, but I don't have time to go back and check. Chances are- if I don't remember, you won't either :)

We've spent some time at the pool.

Early in the summer, we went strawberry picking and Ryder really only cared for the animals.

Finn's been busy on these summer nights doing yard work. Also known as this kid's dreamworld.

Sweet boy has had some asthma flare ups with colds, but it doesn't slow him down.

And Ryder is getting "so big"

Mom came to town to help with the boys while Dustin was in Haiti for a week.

And these boys couldn't get enough of their daddy when he got home. I love how proud Finn looks in this picture.

We try to eat outdoor as much as possible, because it makes for less food to clean off of our floors and walls. Finn's a huge fan. Ryder's undecided.

Ryder got tubes in his ears and while he did not like it at all- we're hoping it'll make him a much happier camper to not get a double ear infection every time he gets a cold. 

We go to Food Truck Tuesdays at a park near our house. Also known as more eating outdoors.

The boys and I go to storytime once a week, because it's air conditioned. 

And we've had some playdates with our friends. 

This baby boy got his first haircut.

And this one got his 1,000th it seems.

And he aged about 9 months in a matter of minutes.

And this one aged about 13 years.

Ryder now loves to be outside just as much as his brother.

We headed up to the pool for the 4th of July.

We've gone on a couple two on one doughnut dates. Also known as eating anywhere but home.

And park picnics. More eating outside of home.

Dustin and I were able to escape for a date night!

We participated in cow appreciation day at CFA. We'll do anything for free food. 

And more eating outside of the house.

Finn found Dustin's dad's old guitar and this has now become a nightly routine. His biological side of the family is incredibly talented when it comes to music (us not so much) and so far he's taken a huge interest in it. He names instruments when he hears them in songs and wants to play them all. 

This big boy turned 16 months old.

Zoo trips are always better with friends.

And Ryder still wakes up by about 5:30 everyday.

So that about sums up everything we've been up to for the past couple months. We also too a family beach trip with Dustin's side of the family down to Seagrove Beach back in June, but there is an entirely separate post for that. As much as I love the beach, pool and popsicles outside, I'm ready for summer to move along. Give me all the pumpkins, leaves, scarves and cool temps. We may have another 3 months until we see those in Georgia, but pumpkins usually make their appearance in our house around Labor Day.
