We're leaving Friday to go on vacation! We are flying (yahoo) BUT we're flying on two separate airlines...Brian is flying on AirTran and Garrett and I are on Continental. Did ya notice that Garrett & I are together...I get to fly alone with a two year old who likes to do things all by himself including sit by himself and... He is so excited to be going on an airplane that he hasn't stopped talking about it. It's too cute. So wish me luck getting to the airport on time and making it through security and not getting stripped searched! haha

isn't that family sticker the cutest thing!

My friend Stephanie and I just signed up for the Creative Photography Retreat!! in Stamford Connecticut! I can't tell you how excited I am. This retreat is a two and a half day retreat that jam packs all kinds of classes on photography techniques and know-hows that my head will be spinning when I get home! Oh my Gosh! The people who are going to be there teaching these classes are a-m-a-z-i-n-g ~ If you scrapbook, you probably know the names like Lisa Bearson creator of Creating Keepsakes *way huge scrapbook magazine*, Candice Stringham *whoa I can't believe I am going to take a class with her*, Ali Edwards *like who wouldn't be in awe of this lady* and others like Jessica Sprague and Renee Pearson. HOLY MOLY!!!!
This is going to be AWESOME! oh my gosh Cheryl Muhr and Nicole Hill and Skye Hardwick and oh my gosh I am soooooooo excited! :)

Happy 4th of July

We had a last minute visitor for the 4th, Brian's Dad Jim. He decided he was going to head out to visit family in Indiana and stopped over for a couple of nights. We were all happy to see him and had a nice time visiting. Garrett was very happy Grandpa was here. He showed him all his latest feats...riding his bike, meeting his friend Mateo, and talking and talking and talking Grandpa's ear off. We're so glad you stopped and spent the fourth with us, Jim! :) We also had some fun going out to Cedar Point on Sunday afternoon. My cousin David and his family are out there camping (sort of~they have a sweet RV they travel in) so we went out and had a cookout and swam in the pool all while the crazy roller coasters were roaring in the background. Garrett and Brian went in the water park and had a ball. I forgot to bring a bathingsuit so I took photos :) If you haven't been to Cedar Point, you have really got to put it on your list of must-do's! It is awesome!

It was a beautiful weekend for the weather and a great weekend spending time with family (it's so nice that we had family in town!) and friends. We had our friends Fabio and Jennifer and their son, Mateo, who is Garrett's little friend, over for dinner on Saturday too. Jennifer is/was just about ready to pop with her second baby. She is/was due any day so we had them over so she wouldn't have to worry about food. Her mother is in town awaiting the new baby so she came along too. It was a nice dinner and exciting talking about the new baby coming. :)

I got a call early this morning that Jen went into labor at 3:30am...waited at home until 5:30am...got to the hospital around 6ish and delivered at 6:45am! A baby boy! 7lbs 2oz named Gabriel. Everyone is healthy and doing great. Way to go Jen! We're so excited for all of you!

Hoping everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!
