Just because you have a baby....

doesn't mean you have to miss out on summer. We have been able to make it to a few of the "goings on" around town the past few weeks. We may not have stayed as long as we normally would, but it felt great to get out of the house for a bit. We love living in a small town because you can go to an event and not be overwhelmed with people.

When Annie was 5 days old we went on her first outing to the "Nifty Fifties Car Show". Will was in awe with the hot rods (of course). Our favorite was the 68 cherry red Camaro. So sweet... too bad I didn't take a picture of it.


Not the best picture of Annie, but I had to document her first outing!

We also ended up having a very fun Fourth of July, in spite of not having any plans the day before. Nothing spells Happy Fourth like a hot dog for lunch and a hot dog for dinner! Thanks to the Nelson's for letting us invite ourselves over for a BBQ.

Bryn, Will and Luke: Best buddies with the messiest faces ever!!!

And the rest of these are just because I can't get enough! The first two weeks are always tough with a newborn, but they are tough in a I-never-want-to-forget-this-time-when-you-are-so-fresh-into-the-world sort of way. I was watching Father of the Bride yesterday afternoon on T.V. and found myself crying. Annie is the name of the girl that gets married, and it made me think about how quickly this life slips away from us. I'm just trying to soak up every minute right now because I know I don't get them back.

Wow! Your kids are so cute!! It's so nice to have a baby in the summer when you actually can leave the house without worrying about getting sick. I swear I will never have a winter baby again!

What's this? A BBQ and I wasn't invited? And we all know what Annie's married name is in Father of the Bride? Yes, McKenzie. :)

I think that it is wonderful that you are still going out a bit and doing fun things with your family.
Those kinds of things are very important because they create memories for everyone.
AND, your baby is lovely.

I went crazy after a week of staying inside at home so we decided the same thing about summer. I'm just glad we don't have to worry about sickness as much. It's nice to get out and enjoy summer!

I love the picture of Dallas and Annie at the BBQ...so sweet.
