Em and Drew Hanging Out

:O We get to see Uncle Drew tomorrow! Funny pictures but I'm distracted by the ivy. These were taken in May... crazy growth this year!

Close Up

Lips. Cheeks. Curls. Baby blues. She makes me happy when skies are sunny. (yes, I'm the opposite of most people... sunny days = awful). 

She's still a little stinker.

Brittany Upgraded: Emma Edition

I have been slowly working through Brittany Upgraded again. I dance. I yoga. I move more. But this was the best thing ever... this makes a really long, super sweaty workout even better. Love this girl. 

Emma stretched with me. 

Okay, now you're just showing off.

Whoa.. reaching for both feet.

Farmer's Picnic

Back in June, we attended the Farmer's Picnic at Steckle Homestead. Unfortunately, it was raining but they have a big barn to hold events. There was a nice sausage dinner and frozen yogurt. But Emma's highlight had to have been singing and dancing with Erick Traplin. :) Check out the video... especially the last clip... Ian got called up! 

Checking out the giant cow...

She looked so little among the other kids...

Mommy and Em.

Daddy and Em.

Emma volunteered and Ian got volun-told. :P

Meeting piggies!

That face!


Soaking wet fam...

Emma's Favorite Visitor

Uncle Drew is finishing up school and hasn't been available for board game weekends. This was taken back in April (holy crap the changes in Emma!). She still talks often about her favorite weekend visitor. :)

Tot & Now Sometimes Me

Emma is now in the Tot & Sometimes Me swim classes. Last weekend, we had our first class where I exited the pool. The instructor let us know that it was time. I was slightly confused.. unsure how Emma would react. I headed to the locker room but was hesitant to have her out of my sight. As I was changing, I heard a kid screaming their head off. It sounded exactly like Emma. I changed (feeling guilty) and headed to the gallery to watch with Ian and G-Ma. Turns out, Emma was totally cool. No crying. No screaming. Let the instructor hold her and float a bit. 

Below is an extremely blurry picture but it's all the evidence I have of her fantastic day. So relieved!

Emma's 3rd Haircut

That's right. I took pictures of Emma's 3rd haircut appointment... mainly because it distracted her or got her to bend her head down. We didn't change her hairstyle, just continued to trim up the back to remove the bad layering. Both of these pictures accurately show her general confusion. Curls for days! :)

Bye For Now G-Ma!

G-Ma heading back to Virginia today but we will see her again in 3 weeks! Yaaay! 

Photographic evidence that my mom had the vacuum out with 15 minutes of arriving - no joke. 

Emma decided that she would start LOVING strawberries while my mom was here. 

We visited Anna Mae's in Millbank... it was totally shocking and disorienting. They have been through a major renovation that has just opened. It is gorgeous! 

Afterwards, we headed to Herrle's for fresh corn. G-Ma got Emma to be a sheep. :) 

See you soon G-Ma! --> Check out the countdown...
