Back to the first weekend in August...

My best friend and old college roommate, Maggie, and her little girl, Kylie, came to visit.  It was so good to catch up and watch Hampton and Kylie "play."  And besides just the treat of seeing them, Maggie bought a whole pink wardrobe for baby girl Hardin :-)  

We also got to test out the double BOB...Maggie says it needs a horn!

What sound does a/an?

After 16 long months...Hampton has finally made an animal sound when asked :-)

My friend's kids have been doing animal sounds since they were like 9 months, haha!

And, what do you think Hampton's first animal sound is.....

Dog, no.   Cat, no.  Sheep, no.

He doesn't woof, meow, or baaaa.

An Elephant of all things....trunk action and all.  Love this kid!!

Blowing Rock (with kids)

The weekend after my mom and brother came to town we took a trip back to Blowing Rock, NC, with the Blackwells and Arnings.  Remember the last time we went....sans kids and negative 2 degrees?  Well, this trip was a lot different!!  3 babies and more like 90+ degrees...  To me, the best part of weekend trips is that when bedtime comes we don't all have to rush home to put the kids to sleep at 9pm (only to be left staring at our spouses)......we can put them to bed and then hang out and have uninterrupted conversations late into the night (or at least midnight)!

A little cabin time...

And our big excursion to Grandfather Mountain...

Of note:  Hampton had not been in the Baby Bjorn since he was about 6 months :-)  And yes, even my t-shirts don't fit anymore and I vow not to wear this Cheers t-shirt again the rest of my pregnancy :-)
