Summer Begins!

My it's been a while since my last post...Let's see if I can get all caught up......Summer is finally upon us, after almost a straight month of rain here in NJ! The weather the last 2 weeks here in our neck of the woods has been well GLORIOUS! Low 80's down to the 60's at night it's been wonderful and I think we've save some money this year on the central air as well!! It's been just great to have the window's open!

Last Saturday on the 4th of July we not only celebrated our nation but we celebrated my little man Bryson's 2nd Birthday! I can't believe he is 2 already and we spent the weekend up at my parents! We had a great BBQ at my Aunt Sandi and Uncle David's house with all my aunts and uncles and cousins! WE also had cake and celebrated Bryce as well! I made a cup cake cake of a Turtle for him with my mom's help but as you can figure I forgot to take Pictures of it! But I am hoping next week sometime we can have a little get together for Bryce with Jayson's family down here and I'm planning on doing the cup-cake cake again so Hopefully then I can get some pictures of it!! The kids and I stayed up a couple of days longer (Jayce had to be home for work), but we were able to get to the beach with my mom and it was just awesome!! Can you believe my little man is 2 and this is the 1st time on the beach! I know it's a shame! We only like about 1/2 hour from the beach and I grew up in a tiny town called Ocean Grove it's 1 square mile and the furthers part is 1/2 mile to the beach, I spent every day of my summers on the beach as a kid and teenager you would think My kids would've too but opps!! Its just so hard sometimes! But you wouldn't guess it was his first time! He did wonderful and was a complete beach bum!

This past Saturday we went to visit my in laws camping and it was so fun! The kids played and played and we enjoyed a beautiful day outside spending time with the family and Jayson's sisters and their family! It was so nice/but yet sooo tiring! Madyson stayed overnight with Nanie and Popie and enjoyed some time with them and we went home afterdinner! Before we left, we got Bryce's jammies on and then headed home, only a 15 minute drive but bless his little heart he fell right asleep on the way home!! He was soo sleepy!! Poor little man but he had so much fun!

On a sad note, my Pop Pop (my dad's dad) went to meet Jesus on friday...He was 83 years old lived a good full life, but was stuck by cancer a number of years ago and then around April he took a turn for the worse and in May he was sent home on Hospice..Not that you are ever prepared for death but it was a little bit of a shocker because he was up and down the whole time on Hospice! The only good thing about all of this is it will be nice to see extended family that you only see once a few years or so....So please pray for all of us this week it's going to be a hard long week!

Next week we have a ton of doctors appointments, Between Ear Nose and Thoart doctors for little man a dentist appointment for Mady and my OB appointment its going to be busy but nice to get all these things done! I better go and get my day started I have lots to get down today!
