I'm an Auntie again!

First of all, my first nephew was born today! Today was his due date, which I think is very rare! He's such a punctual boy already. Owen Ryan, 7 lbs, 12 oz. He is VERY cute and has a lot of hair! Both mommy and Owen are doing great. Can't wait to meet him next weekend!

Grandpa G. took Vince and I for our first sailboat ride. Vince was pretending he was a pirate.
I got flowers for my birthday....Jack with his "smiley camera face"
Andy decided to tear down the playhouse in our backyard. He's been working really hard this weekend to get it done. Luckily, some friends came and helped. He took what could be saved up to the hunting land to hopefully use to build something up there. I think I'm going to start a garden next spring where it was...we'll see how it goes!
We also have had someone over replacing some siding (the black is where new siding is going on). It turned out to be a bigger project than expected, but we're really glad we did it. Now we need to have someone come and paint it, and we should be done with outside projects for a while. We're excited to see the end result!

We also have our first cold of the school year right now. Vince is coughing a lot today, and has a rash, which he's never had before. A trip to the doctor might be happening later this week, we'll just have to see how it goes. The only bad thing about Vince being in school is all of the germs that he picks up! It's going great, though. He really loves school.

Back To School!

Vince has finished his first week of school already! His teacher said he's been doing really well. I was looking back at some older pictures and can't believe how much he's changed in a year. He is growing up so fast, and has learned so much (too much, sometimes)! He is such a smart and outgoing boy, and quite the charmer!
Vince on the first day of school last year.
This year....
The boys got Happy Meals for a treat.
Andy ran the Dick Beardsley Half Marathon on Saturday! It was his first, and he did really well. His time was 1:41 (which is very good, I guess). Luckily, their route went down our street, so we got to go out and cheer him on from our front yard. We are very proud of him!
Today we out to the land and did a little exploring. Jack and Vince really loved it....they are definitely outdoor boys!

Goodbye August!

We've had a fun August! Spent as much time outside as we could. School starts in one week....and we are all very excited! It will be nice to get back into a schedule again.
Took the boys puddle jumping! They needed to break in their golashes(sp?) from G. W.!

The whole family went for a walk at the Sucker Creek Preserve.
Riding in the new toy from G. and G. W! In the second picture I asked Jack to smile...and that's what I got!
