Back to Ohio

This week we headed back to Ohio for a crazy whirlwind of a trip! Knowing that this will be our last trip back before the baby - most likely until the holidays - we had a lot to pack in during our week stay. One super fun bit of news was that our new nephew/cousin Joshua David has entered the world! We are so excited to have a new family member and he is super beautiful! We spent the week visiting grandparents, friends and playing with cousin Cam to keep him busy while Aunt Jami tried to catch up on some sleep. It was a great time, but very busy. We feel very fortunate that we were able to catch up with our old playgroup, our friends Paige and Maggie and their new sister, Lily, spend an awesome day with Grandma Jan at the pool, swim at Papou's pool, take Cam out to his pool, and celebrate Father's Day and four birthdays! Thank you to everyone for understanding how crazy it is fitting everyone in! We loved every minute that we were able to spend with everyone!

Summer Nights

We have been having so much fun enjoying this wonderful summer weather! We spend our days outside in the yard or over friends' houses enjoying picnics, swingsets, and pools. We have discovered some new favorites here in Michigan to add to our list of regulars, among these a new new fountain park near our house. Matt's schedule hasn't really been much of an issue since there is so much to do to occupy our time. Here are some pictures of the fun we've been finding:
