A little bit of everything- from sprinklers to airplanes!

Evan checking out his banana peppers with Papa in their garden.. he carried that silly pepper (or pepperoni as he calls it) around the house with him for several days and even asked to sleep with it.. silly boy!
He's come a long way... From not liking water in his face and being scared to get close to the sprinkler to LOVING it... he's been a treat this summer :)
Down the slide right into the sprinkler :)
Big man!
We had a playdate with one of my best friends from high school. She has 3 kids- and she has her hands full! Little baby Eva is only 2 months old and Evan was FASCINATED by her. He wanted to watch her and hold her the entire time they were here. He still can't stop talking about her... It was too precious :)

More of Evan and Evie... I love how his little hand is just wrapped around her shoulder. He was so gentle with her and started singing to her when he was holding her. Melted my heart..
Our airport was having a special day last weekend and we went out to watch the festivities. Evan wasn't too sure about the loud noises at first but he warmed up quickly.

Daddy and E by one of the planes...

Evan is attending a couple weeks of summer camp at Oak Farm Montessori School. This was his first day of camp (school). He was so excited and he's done wonderful. I'm so proud of him.. and sad that he's growing up so quick!
Celebrating Grandpa's birthday... Evan LOVES to sing happy birthday so Charna got out some leftover goodies for us to use as birthday cake :)

Evan on his first pontoon ride at Aunt Laura and Uncle John's. He wasn't too sure at first (as he is with most things), but he LOVED it by the end and did not want to leave... the first of many pontoon rides I'm sure!
Sitting on the ladder with Aunt Laura watching as the older boys swim...
Getting brave with Aunt Laura and Daddy...

This was Laura after Drew tipped her raft over (Evan was already off the raft)... Oh brotherly love :)

A visit from the Hitchcocks.... Evan and Elias being goofy :) We had so much fun- just wish they could have stayed longer... We'll have to make more of an effort to get together with them now since they're moving even farther away :( But we're so excited for them and the opportunities they will have with Todd's new job...
These guys were wild! But they had so much fun and played so well together :)
Trisha and Adeline... LOVE this picture :) What a cutie!
We had a picnic and played at the park before they left. Great day- just wish it could have lasted longer!

So this is what we've been up to these last couple of weeks.....

Well... the professional pictures from John and Laura's wedding are FINALLY here! There were about 600 of them and they turned out great... Here are just some of my favorites (in reverse order because I didn't want to spend tons of time switching them around):

Dancing, dancing and more dancing :)

Pennsylvania/Ohio Vacation!

We had a blast on our family vacation... On the way to Pennsylvania, we met up with the Fishers for a picnic lunch in the park and let the boys play for awhile- until a big storm came in and sent us on our way.
This was the boys right before we left- they were both very tired and completely intent on watching a tractor.... We tried for awhile to get their attention and finally gave up! They had so much fun playing together!
Riding the train at Tuscora Park. Evan loved it!!
When we arrived in Gettysburg, we stayed with college friends and their family. While we were there, we visited a local petting zoo and the boys had a great time... This was Evan saying hello to a llama... He loved it! I think he was just so fascinated to see one in person- one of his favorite books is Llama Llama, Red Pajama...
Evan's not to sure about feeding the ponies!
But he LOVED riding the tractors :)
Evan and the 2 Drews feeding the donkey.. We weren't sure what that contraption was over his eyes!?!
More tractors!
Our next stop was the Please Touch Museum in Philly... Great children's museum.. We all had a blast!
Building with blocks :)
Exercising on the bike...
and the treadmill...

Sitting in the boat with Daddy...

Driving a "struction" truck....
Playing in the huge water table- a big hit!
More water table...

Smith Park- another stop in Philly.. It was an AWESOME park... and even better- FREE!
Swinging with Daddy! I love this one :)
Sliding down the big indoor wood slide... To our surprise, he wasn't scared even a little bit. He went down it over and over and over and over!
More sliding!

Next stop- Sesame Place... It was soo much fun!
Meeting Zoe- he was in complete awe... We lucked out- this was the one character he was most excited to see and we ran into her!
Water slides with Mommy. He absolutely shocked us. We never thought he would love the water slides so much. We just kept doing them over and over...
Saying hello to Elmo in the parade...
Posing with Bert and Ernie...

Another picture of Zoe and Evan :)
Elmo in the parade...

We had so much fun on the water slides at Sesame Place that we made a last minute decision to stop at Kalahari (a HUGE indoor water park in Ohio) on our way home and stay another night.
Going down one of the big boy slides all by himself!
Splashes in the face :)
One tired boy!!
Walking through the water park with Daddy...
Splashes, splashes and more splashes :)

We had a blast and although we were sad that it came to an end, we were happy to be home... Can't wait to do more of these family trips!!!
