Beach Trip!

Hey guys! We took so many pictures at the beach, even though we were only there for 2 full days, both of which included RAIN!!! We had a great time despite the weather and had such a good time catching up with our family. This is actually the hotel where I spent almost all of my summer vacations growing up...I was actually only a month younger than Anna Kate when I came for the first time!

This was Daddy's favorite...the suit that Anna Kate's wearing was actually my first bathing suit!! :)

Dianna & Dustin's Wedding

This past weekend, my cousin Dianna got married, and we were thrilled to be there for it! We had a great time hanging out with family while we helped get everything set up and ready for the big event! The wedding was beautiful and we wish Dianna and Dustin all the happiness in the world as they start their life together!

Lots of time with Family & Friends

We had a really fun week last week complete with a day at the pool, a party (complete with Drew, Anna Kate's main squeeze), and a visit with the Greatgrandparents. Anna Kate also had her first trip to the mall! On Monday, we went over to our friend Sarah's pool which was SO fun...especially since Anna Kate and Drew who were supposed to be napping, basically laid in the floor and talked to each other! We had a party for our friend Michael who is actually starting med school today-Good Luck, Michael!! We got to see Drew for a bit...he was getting ready to go to bed, so we only had time for a quick photo op, then it was time to party! This week, we got to visit with Anna Kate's Greatgrandparents and see Aunt Sarah's video from was great! Anna Kate is rolling from her back to her belly really well, but she can't quite get back on her back yet. She went to sleep the other day on her belly (while I watched, of course) and freaked out when she woke up and couldn't roll over. She's also really starting to grasp and hold on to things really well, and just jabbering up a storm. I can't wait for her to start talking!

Drew and Anna Kate "napping" while the girls enjoyed some time in the sun!

You can barely tell in this picture, but Anna Kate is really starting to grasp for things...she LOVES that pink elephant on her play mat at my parent's house
