We're Still Here

I'd like to use the excuse that we've had a REALLY busy summer as to why I haven't blogged in forever, but that's not really the case. I thoroughly enjoy reading other peoples blogs, but I am terrible at updating my own.

Vinnie and I did take a vacation to Jamaica in July, but other than that we've just been hanging around having fun at home. Connor is growing up way to fast. He gets smarter, funnier, and sassier every day. He had a blast with Mimi and Papa and Grandma Cathy while we were in Jamaica. He was very well behaved and everyone enjoyed their time with him and and he loved spending time with his grandparents.

Vinnie got a new job! The job he had before required him to work lots of hours and left very little time for us to spend together as a family. He started his new job August 1st and we are still pinching ourselves from having him home on the weekends and in the evenings. It's been great!

I am looking forward to Fall. It is my favorite season. This summer has been way too hot. Countless days of triple degree temperatures! I can't wait to take Connor to the apple orchard again and the pumpkin patch, and maybe a trip to the zoo. Maybe I can talk Vinnie into another mini vacation for the fam. Last September, we took a weekend trip to Omaha, and went to the zoo. That was a lot of fun!

Since I didn't update a whole lot, or at all really throughout the summer, I will leave you with a few pictures.

I've got more to share, but pictures are not uploading right now unless I do one at a time, which takes forever. So I will come back later and try to upload more.
