It's Apple Pickin' Time

Last weekend we took a ride up to Schramm Farms & Orchards to purchase a few apples, lots of veggies and a few goodies.  The weather was divine, the sky so blue, the sun warm.  Here are a few photos from our lovely afternoon.

He's up to something!

Oops! Someone's in trouble.

I love the joy on Amelia's little face.

Elliot loves his sprinkles!

Beautiful blue!

How fast they grow!

Seriously!  Our little Emmie Kate is a little over 1 month ALREADY!
She likes to be held ALL OF THE TIME.
Love you little Em!

I have been rather remiss in my blogging duties (not that it's a duty, I heart my blog).  So, here is a little update of all the grand happenings in our little world. 

In June, Elliot went to Zoo Camp, and then Museum Camp.
Jacob played ball this year.  Elliot did, too.
We spent an evening at Kennywood.
It rained here in Pittsburgh . . . ALOT, but the kiddies got in some swim time.
We've gone to the Drive-In.
Emmie Kate joined our fold on July 6, 2019.
We had a horrible storm and our basement flooded . . . AGAIN.  The hot water tank was saved.  We will need to replace the dryer.  Not yet sure about the washer nor the furnace.
Due to the storms, we stayed at the Embassy Hotel a few times.  I'd choose room service any day!
We played at Chuck E Cheese.
While we have had much rain this season, we have also had really hot days, too.  We have kept the kiddies busy.  We have enjoyed our front porch and our back yard.  We have played lots of cards, Clue and Yahtzee.  Elliot can now play UNO.  Amelia is getting taller, but still not tall enough to go on most of the rides at Kiddieland.  

Well, that's my update.  How is your summer moving along??

Welcome Emmie Kate Bailey!

Welcome to the newest addition to our ever growing family. 

Arriving this morning, weighing 5 lbs, 4 oz. and 18.5 inches in length, with a lovely head of hair.  So precious.

CONGRATS to Kayla and Carl.  She is beautiful!
