Summer slide show

It's not much, but at least it's the pictures. I didn't put captions because of time but they are almost all self explanatory. Enjoy! I know we had fun while they were being taken!

The last leg of our trip.

Just a quick note here. I left Badger, Iowa this morning with the boys and headed to Warrenville, IL. to see Sam's dad. From here I head to my grandma Hobbs, to my Aunt Loretta and my mom's parents and then to Eldridge to see Sam's mom and family. Whew! It's going to be a lot of travel and upheaval for the boys.

It's been a great trip so far. I have had enough time to hang out with family and friends and not feel like I'm short changing anyone. I even went to my ten year class reunion. It was interesting. I definitely enjoyed catching up with a few people I had lost contact with!

I have a ton of pictures on my camera, but I haven't down loaded them onto my computer yet. Let's just say that I have some cute pictures of Aaron enjoying some great summertime foods. Watermelon and sweet corn. Yum!

The hardest part about this trip has been not getting to talk to Sam on the computer face to face. It was also weird being spouse-less for the reunion. I was talking to a friend about kids and she was talking about how she wanted more but her hubby was done. I said she should have more and he said, "kids are hard work!" I replied, "I know, I'm doing it alone!" I then stopped and said, "Wait--it's because my husband is deployed, not because I'm a tramp!" So, yeah, fun explanations!

I will definitely write a bunch of updates with pictures and fun stories once I get back to California. Well, after I hit Disneyland again and get Nathaniel to preschool. And cubbies...dang, it's going to be busy!!

Kicking it in Iowa.

Just wanted to let people know that we are in Iowa until September. My mom doesn't have good internet and neither does the town so my updates will be few and far between. Hopefully Sam will update this thing with news of himself!

We are having a great time. It's been so nice to catch up with people and also just sit and enjoy the outside. The weather is awesome and my mom has so much space so Nathaniel can just run around and be a kid. He's played hide and seek outside and has caught lightening bugs. It's been great.

Aaron has two teeth and is now scooting across the floor. He is really trying hard to crawl and will have it before he turns 6 months for sure. He has almost mastered getting from the crawl position to the sitting up position too.

That's about it here. Hope people are well!
