So this post is going to be a mash up of all of the things we've been up to for the last couple of months. Back in July Chris and I went to a really big car show in Dublin, OH. We really enjoyed it and afterwards we tried Steak 'n Shake, which we both really liked!
Towards the end of July Chris and I celebrated our 4th anniversary! We went to eat at Outback Steakhouse (I LOVE their pumpernickel bread) and planned to go see HP #7.2. The movie fell through that evening, but we were able to go a few weeks later.
The first week of August I was able to go to Arizona for Natalie's little boy's baby blessing. I had a lot of fun being with my sisters and mom and dad (we missed you Gordon)! I can never seem to get enough family in! And can I just say that Rylie and Jude are the cutest things ever? I love those 2 kids to death and can't wait to see them again! And thank you, David, for putting up with all of us and our endless demands! And Natalie, you are a beautiful mother and person!
While I was in Arizona, Chris whiled away his time by going to an American Leman's race where fancy cars raced (Ferrari's, Porsche's, etc.). Chris was in automobile paradise, need I say more?
For roughly 3 weeks, Chris's sister Jenny and her 3 kids were out in Ohio, along with Maria (back from BYU-Idaho) and DeDee. We had fun seeing them and catching up on all we've missed since we've been here in Ohio. We enjoy the fun times and are able to laugh off the rough times (due to tantrums and lack of naps) when the whole family gets together!
The other day Marysville had its annual hot air ballon festival. They've been holding it since 1976 and each year more and more hot air balloons are shown. We didn't pay to go in, but we could see the ballons flying over us and snapped a few shots. We kept waiting for the legendary Darth Vader hot air balloon, but I guess you have to go inside to see all the really cool ones! Around the time it gets dark they light up the balloons in sync with music and we could see a little of that too. I think next year we'll pay to go inside and give you a real blog post about Marysville's hot air balloon festival!
Lately, Chris has been uber busy with work. He says every day is challenging and he's been working LOTS of overtime to show it! I was recently called to help out in Activity Days and I am so excited to get to know all the girls! As summer begins to wind down, Chris is anxiously awaiting cooler weather and I am sad to see warm weather go. But as always, we'll just keep on keepin' on!
