Weekend Away!

We invited the Sten Family to join us for a weekend at the cabin. While it was a short weekend, we all had a blast! 

The boys did lots of shooting!

 The boys attempted to make their own mini campfires!  

 The weather was warm enough to play on the rocks and wade through the water.

We played on the playground in Waterville and walked the bike trail.

Hoping to plan a longer weekend in the future!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Schoolyear!

The boys started school this week!!!  Eric was completely ready to go back to see his friends.  He is in class with one of his good friends and he has Math class with his best friend, Ryan.  Jacob was a little anxious but he has done great. Two boys from his tee ball team are in his class so he knew a couple of kids. They both seem to really like their teachers.

 It was tough watching Jacob get on the bus Tuesday morning but it helped that his big brother was there to help him.

While the boys were at school, Lucas got to spend a couple of days with his cousin!  We love having Gabriel.  He is such a good baby!

Lucas had his 9 month check up this week.  He weighs in at 15 lbs 15 ozs and is 27 inches long.  He is still such a peanut!!!

Lucas loves anything he can "drive".  He will sit forever and let the boys push him back and forth through the house on his truck.

 We bought him a car that we can push him around outside in too. He loves riding down the street!

 We have a busy fall planned already!  Fall Ball starts for Eric this weekend, then community day and a cabin trip with friends.  Hoping to fit a camping trip in there somewhere before the weather turns too cold.

Where has the summer gone?

I feel like this summer is going so fast.  Only 3 more weeks until school starts again, though some days I feel like it can't get here soon enough!  The boys need a break from each other!  We have had a busy past few weeks.  I have been trying to do something fun every day and get in some family time with Jim on the weekends too.

Watching the tractor pulls at the John Deere Days in Lancaster.

Lucas thinks he's so cool now that he can stand by himself!!!  He pulls himself up and lets go, usually putting hims arms out like this to balance himself!

We went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2.  

Took some trips to local playgrounds.  Lucas loves to swing!

Jim took a Friday off of work and we went for a hike in Valley Forge.

Lucas loves to play with his big brothers' things.  So excited to have the Xbox controller!

We got out the tunnel that Eric and Jacob loved to crawl through when they were little.  Lucas loved it too!

Lucas and Gabe....can't really tell they are 6 months apart!!! Future Best Buddies!

Reading Phillies game with the fire company.  Lucas loved trying all the food from the buffet!

Looking forward to the last 3 weeks of summer....we have a few more fun things planned in the coming weeks!
