We're Still Adventuring!

Hi everyone!  Thanks for your patience during my break from the bloggy world.  You probably know that I've been really busy.  There was shower planning, shower executing, a fabulous bachelorette party in NYC for my sister, a wonderful wedding for my brother and sister-in-law, and all of the busy fun that just generally goes along with any of those activities.  We still have a couple of weeks until my sister's wedding up in Rochester.  So until then, you can find us enjoying all that summer has to offer.  Another list: we've been swimming, playing in the sprinkler and water table and the fountain, smelling flowers, going to the playground.  Those are my excuses for my absence.  Pretty good ones if you ask me!

I'm going to try to keep up with maybe one or two posts a week this summer.  We still do have a lot going on, and besides the outside events, we are really just going to be doing the general afformentioned...just enjoying the outside while we can.  Happy Summer!
