Snap shot of a summer.

We've had a LOT of crazy things happen this summer...starting with these 11 babies born to the "sister" hamsters we got from the neighbors. They were really cute, but no.

We were so lucky to get a visit from some of our State College friends before they move to Malawi, Africa. Here they are at the zoo.

This is the day of Kylie's baptism. I can't tell you what an amazing experience that was for our family. We were so happy to have both sets of grandparents with us for that special day.

Kylie wanted a low-key party-love that girl. So she had a Nancy Drew party. Here are some of the detectives.

I'm only showing the gifts because she got so many books. It warms the heart. It really does.

One of the things we did while the grandparents were visiting was take them to Newport on the Cliffwalk where the Vanderbilts, Astors, etc. built their summer homes.

We also visited the Museum of Natural History when we took Seth's parents to New York City.

Nate has moved from a toddler bed to a twin bed and therefore got his room painted. He decided on 100 acre sky and...(drum roll) Cars bedding again. He loves that car with all of his little man heart.

What have you been doing this summer?


  1. I love the pictures! 11 babies?! Wow. Don't tell my daughter, she'll want me to get one!

    We've been doing a ton of camping this year. I am ready to be done. =)

  2. Wow, sounds like a blast! Who is moving to Africa?

  3. Did you know John & Megan Collins, Jocelyn? They're moving in the next few months.

  4. I love Nate's new bed, and that he still loves Cars, since Lucy will probably forever associate Cars with Nate. I'm glad that Kylie's baptism was such a special experience, I still can't believe our girls are getting that old. I have less than a year now, I just can't believe it! It seems like you had a great time with family, too. We wish we could come back, we had so much fun!
