Thank you for the very subtle reminder, Emma Lee. You always did have a great memory.


Our summer was lovely (all two weeks of it). Unfortunately, we are idiots and therefore did not take too many pictures. We spent time at both Matt's and my parents houses, lots of time with cousins, and even had a bit of time to ourselves. Ava got to sleep on a trampoline for the first time with her daddy and she got to camp in the backyard in a tent with her Grandpa and cousins. We did a lot of swimming. Matt and I went to Raging Waters without children. We had BBQs and parties and get-togethers and ate all the food we miss when we are in Nebraska. I got a pedicure with my sister and Matt finally got a haircut. Moses drove a tractor and seemed to forget all about the fact that he was 14 months old. Ava got waffles or pancakes most everyday for breakfast--a tradition that will not continue back in the real world. Moses experienced his first ice cream cone. All in all I wouldn't have changed a thing.




I didn't get any good picutres of Ava during the trip so I'll share this little gem with you.

Glad you had a good time, now just hunker down for the next few weeks and hopefuly the humidity will let up a bit soon huh?!

Did he sit on it to drive this time? Last time I saw that kid (earlier this summer) he would hang on to the side and stand on the gas pedal and ride like a little crazy man.

You know who Ava reminds me of?

Hey this is Brad. Sorry we missed you while you were in town. Things have been really crazy for us lately. We have been working on the basement and just trying to stay up with the day to day, and sometimes time just gets away from you. We also recently found out that Mel is pregnant and she has been pretty sick! So that has made things a little more difficult as well. I'm sure Lisa remembers how wonderful it is to be pregnant and sick. Matt probably does too! Anyway let us know the next time you come into town so we can make sure that we hang out. We miss you guys!! Good luck with dental school Matt, and remember when you finish you still have to fix my tooth you messed up playing snow football free of charge.
