Our Hiatus

Like I have said previously, we have been so busy and I have been trying to spends time with Aaron and the kiddos as much as possible since completing school. I thought it would be best to do one post on what we have been up to this summer just to catch-up.

So I will start in June (yes it has been that long). On June 4th, Aaron and I celebrated our 7th anniversary. We had a nice weekend away and went to Belterra Casino and Resort. We love going there because it's not too far away and we love the casino and they have a Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse which we love.
On September 9th, my mom, sister and aunt donated breast tissue to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Tissue Bank at IU Simon Cancer Center. My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer so it meant a lot to all of us to do this. It was for such a great cause and if it was going to help research breast cancer, I was all for it.
One that same day, we had our Annual Alumni Dinner and Dance for my high school. Many people my age don't go but my whole family goes and we all have a great time. My high school alumni association is the largest and oldest alumni in Indiana since 1886 which is pretty amazing!
On June 10th, one of my best friends had a beautiful baby girl!! Amelia Jane White was 8lbs, 15ozs and 20 inches long. I got to go down and visit her a couple weeks after she was born and I loved that I got to hold her! I am having Amelia withdrawals so I need to make another trip down to Nashville to hold her again!

We celebrated Father's day on June 17th. I will be blogging later about all of the amazing men in my life. However here is a peek at the father's day gift I made my dad and father-in-law. I think they turned out pretty darn cute.
In July the kids made a trip to the dentist. They weren't that bad, but they weren't on their best behavior. No cavities so hopefully next time Aaron can come with me so it will be easier.
Also in July, Blake's daycare class took a trip to the Louisville Science Center. Being a chaperon, I was in charge of Blake and my niece Katie. It was a great trip and I think we all had a great time! We will be making a trip back very soon.
We also signed Kylie up for a dance/music class. She liked it but it was kind of slow for her. She still got to act like a ballerina. She is not one bit shy but she always acts shy in classes like this for the first 10 minutes or so. She was much more outgoing towards the end of the class.
My beautiful cousin got married in July also. She was such a gorgeous bride and her wedding was so pretty. It was also a pretty fun wedding with a lot of dancing going on. I am so happy for her and her new hubby, Chad.

At the end of July, my sister and one of our best friends took a road trip to St. Louis to see our favorite bands play - Train. It was amazing! It felt like we were 16 again. Not only did we have front row seats, we got to go on stage and sing with the lead singer for one of their songs!! They asked folks coming to the concert to submit videos singing this one particular song. So we did, jokingly, and we got picked! It was so much fun and it will always be something that all three of us will remember forever.
August started of great with our amazing cruise. I did find one more picture which is the picture they take when you are first getting on the ship. It is not the best of my dad, but good of everyone else.
On the 18th, my family had our first annual Corn Hole Tournament to benefit Alzheimer's. We started it in memory of my Grandma and it was such a success. So many local businesses donated and we made almost $3,000 that day! This Saturday is the walk and we will be donating $4,500 to the Louisville Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. I think this is so amazing and I know my Grandma would be so proud.  

To finish off this very long post, this weekend is a huge weekend for us. Kylie turns 3!! We have her party, the Alzheimer's walk, and Blake's first soccer game....all on Saturday!
Until next time....
