Week 1 in Photos- July 27- August 2, 2014

I have decided I really need to be better about documenting our lives. I am so good at taking tons of photos on my iPhone but then never doing anything with them. Or I over-share them on Facebook which is annoying. I know a bunch of people are into Instagram- and while I use it sometimes- I really need to just have a place I can document lots of photos each week.

So my new goal is to do weekly photos on here of our lives. We will see how long this lasts- but I would love to do it all year. I have friends who do "Project Life" and while I would LOVE to be able to do the same, realistically I know I just wont follow through like I hopefully will on here!

This was actually from the week prior. Grey and I flew from Wyoming to Philadelphia. I was supposed to be on the same flight as my in-laws who had been visiting us in Wyoming for a week- but there was a bit of a mix up so I flew solo with the boys. They did SOOOOO GOOD!!!!

Greyson fell asleep on the 2nd plane of the day 

The boys on the 1st of 2 airplanes. They really did so great! 
Aunt Jean was nice enough to pick us up and take us to her house. Owen immediately started playing with his cousins and doctor dress up happened pretty fast! 

Sunday July 27 
Love this little one! 
Grey immediately took to sleeping in bed with his girl cousin's babies. I caught him like this when waking him up from nap this Sunday. He also makes me tuck "baby" in before we leave the room. I guess we are going to have to buy him a baby for Wyoming! It is adorable how paternal he is with the babies. 
Kisses from Victor- Uncle Steve's doggie! 

Monday July 28 
A day before my actual birthday (because the day of was getting a little busy), Owen took my out to the Movie Tavern here in town to see the new Planes Fire and Rescue movie. This place is great because you get to order food to eat while you watch the movie. I had a great birthday date with my oldest! 
Owen's yummy pizza at the movie
Tuesday July 29
Beautiful daisies and mini roses from my husband. He is away for a couple of months so it was extra special to get these from him for my birthday. I keep moving them from the dining room to my room depending where I am because they are so pretty- I want them around me all the time!
My sister sent me a sweet package and one of the contents was a birthday banner. I hung it up in the room I am staying for a little extra cheer! 

My best friend Erin took me out to the Cheesecake Factory- my absolute favorite place EVER to celebrate my Birthday. 

So I am now officially 33 years old. This was a particularly difficult birthday for me because (once again) my husband and I are apart for it  (darn military - said with a smile), and I just really wanted him around. I am here visiting with friends and family who did a great job of making me feel special- I just really missed my husband. We will also not be together for our 8th anniversary of marriage and HIS birthday. Not my favorite time for him to not be near us. Not that there IS ever a good time.... This just seems to happen more years than not. Ok, pitty party over!  :) 

Wednesday July 30
Grey loves to play dress up and can be found most days with a random hat or pair of shoes!

On Thursday we spent the day at Erin's in-laws amazing new pool.

Underwater shot of Owen, Papa and Evan 
Owen was so great in the water. I was so impressed! 

Greyson was a little less sure about the water- but by the end of the day he was letting me take him to the deep end to pretend to be a shark chasing Owen. Most of his time though was spent in the shallow shelf area checking it out himself. He LOVED the pool! 

Owen about to go down the great water slide! He love this thing and did not even mind going under water like he normally would have. The trip to the pool was definitely great for his confidence. We plan on going back next week! 
After they were tired of swimming all of the boys enjoyed some swinging time 
Grey riding his first big boy swing (without the sides of a baby swing! He loved it! 

Friday August 1, 2014 

Friday was finally a low key day. I feel like we had been go go go for a while so it was nice to not have any plans and to just hang around the house. We were all exhausted still from swimming! 
Grammy (Amy's step mother) sent a package with tons of stickers and activity books for all of the cousins. 

Showing off his new big boy backpack that we just ordered and had monogram ed from LL Bean. We also got the matching lunch box. Owen loved them both and felt like a pretty big deal! 

Cousin love early this morning!!!

It is so hard getting all 6 cousins looking in the same direction, smiling. But we sure tried! 

It is even harder when we put them all up on the play gym. Poor Mila was just not a happy camper! 

Grey really is enjoying swinging on the "big boy swing" 

The girls. My nieces and me!

The kids and I have had a really nice week traveling from Wyoming to PA. Our time here in PA has been really great so far. I am looking forward to a couple more weeks of fun!!!
