We're trucking along in this heat and enjoying fun times with friends and family. A few weeks ago, we visited good friends of ours, Katie and Adam (also Rowen's Godparents) in NC. They are expecting a brand new baby boy in September and I cannot.wait.to.meet.him! We love you, Porter Collins :)
A week later, we headed down to Myrtle Beach for a vacation with my family. My grandparents are truly so gracious. They hosted a family vacation for our extended family and we had a great time! I'd never been to MB and I gotta say it's totally different than the gulf coast. But we had fun :) (Minus the security deposit we lost because of a golf cart infraction...we have had to build a bridge and just get over that one...)
Rob took our cousins and nephew to race go-karts. I think he had the most fun. Could he BE any happier?
This amazing lady treks across the country from Arizona every year to visit her family in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Oklahoma! We loved having her here :)
While Grandma Shirley was visiting, we went to Norfolk's Botanical Garden. We l-0-v-e that place! This summer, builders competed in constructing storybook houses that are the cutest things! Here's Little Red Riding Hood's house.
This past weekend we had our neighbors over for dinner. We are SO LUCKY to have such great neighbors! Thanks Jen, Alex, Aimee and Luke! (We miss you, Jen and Nick--come home!) Aimee and Luke and family are finally back from being away and we're so very happy! Rowen's finally old enough to be fun for Owen to play with! And Rowen is totally smitten with new baby boy Joel!

This week we had an awesome lunch date with Katie, James and June! I couldn't help but take too many pictures of the boys hanging out on the front steps with Lady.
She's the best dog in the whole wide world.
Have a fantastic weekend, everybody :)
