Happy New Year!

Wow, another year has passed.  I can honestly say that 2011 seemed to be one of the fastest years ever,  I have no idea where the days went.  That said it was a pretty nice year for us.   We are thankful for all that we have and pray that 2012 will be just as good or better for us and all of our friends and family!

Five Years

Five years, yes that's how long it's been since my little man was born.  I can not believe that he is 5 today.  Everyone says that kids grow up to quick and I can say that is the 100% total truth. I have no idea where the last five year went. Brady is so full of life, he is super smart and loves to talk!   He likes to keep busy, but at the same time enjoys those days that we dress in our comfy clothes and lounge around the house.  He enjoys story time at the library, swim lessons, lunch at great-grandmas and anything else that we may get into during the week.  Happy Birthday Brady!!!

Catching Up

Okay, I'm really not good at this blogging stuff.  I think I might try to find some type of blog challenge to help me get motivated.  If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.  Life is good, busy and seems to be going by really fast.  I don't really have one specific event to talk about so I'm just going to post a couple of pics that pretty much shows what we have been up to.

Vacation

It's amazing how fast some weeks seem to go by. We spent most of this week at lake Erie, a trip that we take once a year. Brady seems to have a real love for the beach, I guess he takes after his mommy. I have always felt an unexplainable peace when I'm sitting on the warm sand, listening to the waves as they gently hit the shore.  We took a few morning trips but I think our favorite trip was to Vermilion.  In May the city of Vermilion built a small train depot that sits about 30 feet away from the train tracks.  This spot was perfect for viewing trains and while we were there we managed to see 4 trains.  The smile on Brady's face was absolutely priceless, I have to admit that I even thought it was pretty neat.  I honestly think he would have sat there all day long waiting for trains to come by.  For lunch we ate at a Quaker Steak and Lube that sat right on the water. It was really nice to sit and eat lunch and watch the boats come back and forth.  Brady even asked to go back the next day!

So bad...

I'm so bad at keeping this blog it's pathetic.  I've never been one to write so I'm not sure what made me think I would keep up with a blog. I honestly don't even remember keeping a diary as a little girl.

Well 6 months has past since my last post. YIKES!  We have been keeping busy and enjoying the summer.  I have a hard time coping with the fact that it is mid-July already.  Brady and I visited Jo-Ann Fabrics today and were greeted as we walked through the door to aisles of dorm room decor and are you ready for this?....  Harvest decor as well.  This however made Brady very happy.  For some reason he has always had a thing for scarecrows.  I'm not sure where this obsession came from, as I would think most kids might be a little uneasy of a face on a stick.   We escaped the store with just a some crochet hooks and a pack of sweet-tarts   I have a feeling though that one really cute scarecrow will make it home with us in the next month or two though.
