There has been alot going on this summer with our family I just thought I would make one big post of lots of pictures and let you all know whats going on. Even though everyone knows I suck at updating this I will still apologize. I need someone to remind me!! Anyway, here goes. (BTW this blog was put together by both Richard and Kerra. I'm sure you can all figure out which ones I wrote and which ones Richard put in)
In the summer time when the weather is high you can stretch right up and touch the sky, when the weather's right you got swimmin you got swimmin on your mind. Have a drink have a drive go out and see what you can find...
When I was probably around 8 years old or so my second dad Dale built this go cart for us it was lots of fun, until a year later he crashed it for us. Don't worry though Jon has fixed it and has now got it doing faster than ever at 45mph in the neighborhood.
Richard has been having some fun learning how to drive this motorcycle around the neighborhood. This isn't his, but he would love to buy one! Too bad his wife isn't to thrilled about the idea.
Motorcycles are too much fun... Too much because they make me want to go into debt to get one...
Dale with Phoenix.
One night a little over a month ago we bundled up little Phoenix and Richard and I went outside and watched Just like Heaven on the trampoline!! I remember the days that we used to sleep outside on the tramp during the summer. For some reason though I don't think if I did it again it would be as fun as it used to be. Either way, it was fun to just get a ton of blankets and watch a movie under the stars.
During the second week in June we took a trip to Florida and Georgia. It was quite the adventure. Since I work for Jetblue and fly for free we like to go to the airports that Jetblue flies to. So, in order to get to Destin, FL we had to fly into New Orleans (via New York and Las Vegas) and drive 5 hours to Destin. We stayed there from Thursday till Sunday and had lots of fun going to the beach and the pool. Then on Sunday we headed out to Georgia. Which was supposed to be 3 hours away but took 7. Who knows why?!?! We spent from Sunday until Friday there visited friends and showed Richard where i grew up. I'm pretty sure we all probably gained 10 pounds from all of the greasy southern food we ate! It was really fun and I'm glad Richard was able to see everything that I always talk to him about. I think we will make it a yearly trip to go down there. Waffle House
While we were there we took some cute family pictures (which I haven't gotten back yet), we went to this huge Water park called White Water that we used to get Season passes to when I was little. Richard's brother has recently moved to Atlanta and he took us out late one night (ok it was only ten but thats late to me now) downtown to eat and see the city. All in all it was really fun. Then when we headed home we had to drive 3 1/2 hours to Charlotte to catch a Jetblue flight to JFK. When the flight was pretty close to sold out from JFK to Salt Lake we ended up going from New York to San Diego and then home. Needless to say it was a LOOOOONG day! But, Phoenix was such a good little baby. I can't believe how well behaved he was on all those plane and car rides.
So thats pretty much our summer so far. Before its over we plan on moving, have another family reunion and going on another vacation to see Chelsie and Jared one weekend in Miami.
As for Phoenix, he is getting so big. I'm sure you can see from the pictures. Its amazing how you can love someone so much thats so little and our love for him seems to grow more and more everyday. We are so blessed to have such a good baby that is in my opinion one of the cutest babies I have ever seen, but I know I am biased.
I think this picture speaks for itself. Phoenix is already in size 2 diapers and has been 3-6 month clothes for a few weeks.
