arts festival

this weekend we went to the arts festival at mellon park.  it felt like our first official family outing - i think because we brought the stroller for the first time.  for some reason, that made it official.

there are some seriously talented people out there.  they had everything from jewelry to paintings to woodwork.  it made me wish that i had an ounce of artistry in me.

the cooler temperatures, the sun, the smell of fried food, the entertainer singing james taylor .... it got me really excited for fall.

this picture was taken immediately after tannon glanced around to make sure none of his friends were there to witness him getting his picture taken by his embarrassing wife.

random thoughts

if i don't fold my laundry, right then and there as it comes out of the dryer, it will most likely never get folded.

i've recently become obsessed with the kardashians.  it's amazing that i can find a family that entertaining.

i didn't realize how weird it was that i went for a bike ride when lennon was a week and a half.  apparently that's not normal.

* * * * *

i love having things to look forward to.  next up: all of our siblings on tannon's side come to visit!  it's a bonus that they'll be here during our favorite time of the year.  i hope they're ready for fall festivals, pumpkin cookies, & cooler temperatures.

it's sunday evening and i'm not dreading the week.  staying at home rocks.

climb on

we were actually able to spend a little time outside during the labor day weekend.  we went rock climbing at mcconnell's mill while tannon's parents were in town.  even though the rock was pretty wet - and i didn't make it up very far - we still had a great time romping around in the forest.

he's gonna be famous

i have never seen tannon so excited as when he got picked to be an extra in the upcoming batman film.  the best part?  he even got paid for it.

when you see the movie, look for a guy at a sporting event, buying beer at a concession stand.
we actually don't know if he will even make it into the movie, but here's to hoping!

1 month

this cute little guy is a month old already.  my oh my.  the best part about him turning 1 month is that he's slept anywhere from 5-7 hour stretches the past 4 nights.  that makes a mama happy.
