Wow! It's been a terribly long time, hasn't it?
It seems as though we caught the summer fun bug and danced our way through the sunshine filled days, without a care or pang of responsibility all season long. While I wish that were completely accurate, we have had a decent amount of enjoyment these days as well as a healthy dose of calendar overload, which is why we've been so distant.
Didn't meant to forget about our little cozy nook over here but I guess we just got caught up. My apologies.
We have had quite a lot happening over here to say the least. Plenty of fun filled days spent at the beach and with friends but also just growing and learning everyday. LM is walking, ahem, running around like a lunatic which is why perhaps I barely have time to eat a bowl of cereal in the morning before it turns soggy- let alone post a new entry as I'm always dashing to save him from some unfavorable fall or worse fate.
We have also celebrated a HUGE milestone, his 1st Birthday! And what a day it was! After sweating it out for weeks of threatening weather, the (outdoor) party went off without a hitch. We held his soiree at a sweet little park by our house, which we love. They have an old fashioned carousel, a train that rides around the park and a zoo, complete with exotic animals. All of the kids seemed to have a great time, including the b-day boy, which is what it's all about.
Here are a few shots from his big day:
It seems like yesterday that he was just born, now he has friends, words, steps, teeth, laughs, smiles, hugs and kisses to share with us. He is pure joy and I thank my lucky stars for him everyday.
It has been a fabulous summer and we are glad to be back.
