I Have to Brag

I'm going to take this opportunity to brag about my husband regarding his previous/only post. Not only did he pass his board exam, he passed in the 98th percentile!!!! Not too shabby huh? We're all soooo proud of him and all of his hard work. Congratulations babe!


Saturday Tayeson turned 5!! It has gone entirely too fast. I'm sure you're wondering what could elicit this kind of reaction.
A shiny new green bike of course!!!

Can you tell he was a little excited? He spent the morning riding circles through the living room, kitchen, and dining room.
I love how excited he gets when it's time to open presents.
Hmmmm, I wonder what could be in this one.
Grandma C got him all of the bike necessities including a totally obnoxious horn!!! Can you tell he absolutely loved driving us crazy with it?
Modeling our new helmet. Thanks Grandma.
For whatever reason he felt it necessary to try and keep the balloon down while he was opening his presents. It was quite entertaining.
After lunch we were off the the "gray truck museum" (any car dealership with a gray truck). He became very cultured while living in Philly since we frequently attended many of the museums there and in Manhattan. He seems slightly disturbed that there are not many here so he has come up with some of his own.
Though all he ever talked about was the gray truck, he only wanted to look at the black one. He was soooo excited to finally go to the museum.
We decided to go with a Mickey Mouse cake this year. It didn't turn out too bad either.
We had some of his friends over for a barbecue and cake. They gave him an awesome new red truck that he was absolutely thrilled to death about. Happy Birthday Tayeson!!! We love you soooo much.
I also have to say Happy Birthday to Sarah (our birthmom)!!! She turned 21 today.

Sunset Boat Ride

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to spend some time with Bill, the realtor who sold us our house, and his wife. We took their boat out on Lake Champlain and headed to dinner on one of the islands. It was fabulous and we really had a great time, not to mention how beautiful it was.
Here we are with Bill.

Sooooo beautiful. We love it here!!!
Sunset was so gorgeous on the ride back. We're so lucky to live here and get to look at this every day.

Our Marathon Weekend

Okay, some quick catch up. Near the end of June we had the opportunity to spend 32 out of 72 hours either in an airport or on a plane!!! I know y'all are seriously jealous. Eric took Friday off and we headed out to Idaho to see his brother get married. Here is the happy couple. Congratulations Travis and Courtney!!!
Aren't they so cute?

T was the obnoxiously tired ring bearer. Here he is enjoying a stolen cupcake.
We're so glad that we were able to make it, but the most exciting part of our weekend was not the wedding nor the airports (shocking, I know). The real highlight was getting the chance to finally meet our birthmom!!! We had a great time getting to know Sarah and her family a little better. We were sorry that our time ended up being so short (we had a lovely 5 HOUR delay in Chicago!!!!) but we loved every minute we got to spend with her. She is truly an amazing person and we can't wait to see her again shortly!!! :)

One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

We learned the hard way why Mom and Dad said that the hammer is not a toy. His fingernail has since fallen off and is in the process of making it's comeback.
