More catching up…

Well – like the old saying goes - “it’s been a while”…

But things have been more than a little hectic around here (including a loss of internet connectivity – that’ll slow the ol’ blogging down…).  Some of you already know the details – and others will soon read all about it right here!

Before we get into all of that – We need to tell you about Mike’s second big trip.  This one was a trip to Evansville to see more family!  And it was his longest trip so far.  A whopping 300 miles!  And he was a very good boy during the travels…

Not much happened Friday night because we arrived so late.  But Saturday was a fun filled (but relaxing!) day.  The weather was nice and cool.  It was a perfect day to sit out on the patio and bar-b-que.  So that’s just what we did!  Aunt Jennifer, Derrick, cousin Lucas, and cousin Kiersten came over to join us.  We lounged around, threw some baseballs, played with the dogs, and ate some ribs.  A very nice day indeed!  And wouldn’t you know it – Mike got a surprise visit from Aunt Mary, Uncle Jim, and cousin Kim!  Now THAT is a perfect day delivered with whip cream and a cherry on top…

Sunday was another great day.  We woke up and drove to Aunt Tracey’s house to visit with Kylie (oh yeah – we visited with Aunt Tracey and Uncle Chuck too!).  We weren’t there too long before there was a knock on the front door.  The fact that there was a knock on the front door at Aunt Tracey’s house a story all by itself.  Much to Mike’s surprise, Grandpa Lee came to join in the fun!

Of course, there was a purpose to this gathering.  Cousin Ashten was having a birthday party down the street from Aunt Tracey’s house.  So Mike got to meet Aunt Andrea, Uncle Larry, and all the cousins (Kaitlynn, Treylan, Corbin, Xzavien, and Ashten).  Not to mention that it was Mike’s first birthday party!

What a nice weekend indeed.  We can’t wait to see everybody again!!!!!

Wondering what’s coming up next?  We have updates on Mikes 4 month pediatric checkup, Mike’s checkup visit to the orthopedic surgeon, and Mother’s day!  And I’m sure more things will pop up too – so be on the lookout.  I promise not to wait so long before the next post!!!!!
