the rehearsal

My brother got married July 12th (wedding post to follow) and we celebrated a rehearsal and dinner on Thursday July 10th.

Sugie girl wore a pretty pink dress and practiced walking down the aisle with her daddy.

She loves her uncle Brandon.

She also loves her daddy...

Here's the happy couple

And my happy parents....

4th of July

But's already the end of July and you are just now writing about the 4th?  Yes, yes I am. 

We took Claire for a walk on the 3rd up to a nearby church to watch local fireworks.  It was super close and a great location for future reference.  We weren't able to see all of the lower fireworks but we were far enough away that it wasn't too loud for Claire.

Patrick made the smart decision to pick us up some frozen custard on his way home so we enjoyed some Fritz's concretes.

She enjoyed the show, but she also enjoyed watching the traffic and the 3 little boys snuggled up on a blanket next to us.

Did I mention it was unusally chilly for July??  We had to take blankets to watch fireworks because I didn't want her to be too cold in her PJs.  I think our first year of fireworks was a success.  You can bet we'll be trying this again next year.

the park

A couple weeks ago, Patrick convinced me to take an evening walk to a "nearby" park to let Claire swing.  30 minutes later....we were there!  It was a hike!

She did the baby swing and sat on Mommy's lap to swing.

It was really fun but I think next time we will drive.  The walk back home was a killer!  This preggo lady can only do so much walking and I definitely got my exercise in for the day week.

25 weeks

Quick belly bump update:


New baby on the left, Claire bear on the right.

Leaving my hair down makes my face look slightly thinner.  Noted.  Too bad I am usually too busy lazy to fix my hair.  

Everything is going great - doc says I am measuring right on time.  Heartburn has started to show it's ugly head.  Ugh.  I'm not quite ready to give up buffalo chicken anything.  Guess I can't complain if that's all I really have to complain about.  We've got a healthy little one growing big (see photo above).  Can't wait to see our new addition in October!

wedding season

The last weekend in June was my cousin Scott's wedding.

Claire was pretty in hot pink:

The couple was happy during their vows:

And daddy was happy holding the bear:

It was a beautiful day and a fun filled reception.  Plus the food was excellent - they had these grilled veggies that made this preggo's day.  Yum!

congrats Scott & Mallory!!

I am incredibly behind on posts - it has been a crazy busy month.

I am going to try to quickly catch up.

Exactly one month ago today my BFF Keshia was in town and we had a high school girl get together at my friend Racheal's house.

It was so nice to have girl time and talk about life, love and parenting.

Here are all the little ones:

I am so blessed to have these great girls in my life.  Maybe baby #2 will be a boy because poor Simon is extremely outnumbered right now.  :)
