Samuel’s birthday party

Samuel celebrated his 4th birthday at the High Point Gymnastics Academy. It was a fun-filled party. The highlight for Aidan and Samantha was the giant swing 🙂

Happy birthday George!


It is hard to believe that our George is 10 yrs old today! He had a special dinner tonight and is lounging in his favorite place as I write this post. I looked back at some of his puppy pictures this afternoon and found this precious one. My how time flies! We love you Georgie Porgie 🙂

first week away with grandparents


Aidan and Samantha left yesterday for their first week away with MeMa and PPops. Samantha had been a little worried earlier in the week, but by the time the actual day arrived she was packing quickly along with her brother. I double-checked that both had their good listening ears on, hugged them tightly, and off they went (smiling the whole way).

another summer playdate

Today Carl and his brother Rus came over for a playdate. Aidan was super excited to show Carl all of his trains after our playdate at his house. We did swim for a little bit, but the boys were really more interested in playing trains in the playroom. Samantha had fun playing with Rus (making him her prince for the afternoon), which he tolerated very well 🙂

When it was time to go, Aidan said “Carl, I need to give you a big hug goodbye because you are my best friend.” Samantha and Rus joined in to make it a nice group hug.

our first morning glory



Aidan’s morning glory plant has been growing, growing, and growing vines all summer long. Today we woke up to our first bloom. It was beautiful….and here it is!

another summer playdate



Yesterday Samantha’s friend Zoe came over for a playdate. They have been planning this playdate for quite a while now…with all the essential things needed for fun – a tea party, lots of dress up clothes, stuffed animals, etc. Zoe brought along her brother Jack for Aidan to play with, so fun was had by all 🙂
