Dairy Queen

We ended this early Fall hot spell with a trip to Dairy Queen. Thankfully now the weather is behaving itself and acting more like Fall. Fall is my favorite in Western PA and I am ready for hoodies and bonfires!!!

Little Blondie's First Haircut

She's still sun-kissed from summer and I didn't clip off more then two of the littlest snips, but it made a HUGE difference in her appearance!

Look who can hold the baby again!

Isaac got the okay to hold Evelyn again! She was so excited to be held by her "Eye-ya" after a full month of being denied every time she wanted to be held by him. He isn't able to pick her up yet, but can hold her if she is handed to him or in her high chair (or on top of the table where she can sometimes be found).




He also got the okay to ease back into the trombone and gave it a go as soon as we got home from the appointment. He got a little winded and dizzy, so we cut the fun short for tonight. In two weeks he can ease back into tennis and Frisbee. As long as he doesn't develop any new symptoms, he doesn't have to go back for two months!!!

College Classes

I am still having a hard time with the fact that this kid is taking college classes. This seems too grown up for where I think we are right now. 

This is more what I think of when I think of James- not grown-up sized teenage version. What happened?!?! I blinked and he grew up!

Pittsburgh Irish Festival

We had a fun night at the Pittsburgh Irish Festival

There were many booths to explore, and the favorite for my crew was the instrument booth. The kids visited this booth several times during the evening. 






Several bands performed.






Just being silly
