It's been a while

Updating the family blog has taken a serious back seat to summer fun. Since summer is winding down for use, with school starting in just 8 days, I thought it was time to pick up with the regular if anyone is still checking, this is for you!

We had a blast traveling to and through 7 states in June and July visiting the grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, first second and third cousin and friends.

Daisy was a great traveler. Abel and Afton were happy as long as treats and movies kept coming!

Here is Daisy wearing our "heirloom" dress that Patrick's aunt made when Afton was a baby. I love this dress and squeeze the girls into it for as long as I can.

Daisy is 5 months now. I know, holy smokes, how did that happen?! She is super vocal, loves to blow bubbles, rolls over both ways and loves to play with anyone.

Afton is so excited to start first grade. She can't wait to wear her new backpack and pick out her outfit! She is the best big sister in the world. Afton is definitely Daisy's favorite person!

Abel is usually in constant motion. He still loves Buzz Lightyear and has different names for all of his Buzzes even though a few of them are identical...he can tell them apart!

Patrick is BUSY! Big news there! He was promoted a few weeks ago to an assistant creative director which means...more work! Luckily, he has hardly had to travel lately. A huge improvement from last summer!

And I promise to be a better blogger again.

Easton just got into the Buzz and we just bought the same costume Abel has. Found it off an ad, for Halloween of course. Love a cool costume cheap and well before it's needed! Big excitement here!
