Well...Dave left yesterday afternoon for Chile until Aug.8, 2008! It was definitely sad to say goodbye since this is the first missions trip since 1998 that we haven't gone together! I know can you believe that!!? This is going to be an awesome time for him and the team so I'm excited about that. If any one is interested in seeing updates while they are down there here is the link: http://www.highimpactmissions.com/apps/mlink/missions_index.jsp?a=merge&TripID=13
I'm sure I'll have more to blog about soon...keep us in your prayers!

Went to get pedicures with Laura and Jen tonight!! It was delightful...I sure do love to get my toes painted! I hate this picture of me just so everyone knows but it's the only one we got of the 3 of us. I went grocery shopping earlier in the midst of a DOWN POUR! I got home and was SOAKED. Evan wasn't cause he was nice and covered :). My hair literally looked like I just got out of the shower...that could be why my hair looks so bad in this picture. Ha ha. Aren't we always our worst critic!?!? And now the sun is shining and Evan & I might go for a walk in a bit!

Evan had his first experience in my parents pool on Thursday! It was really sunny and super hot but by the time we got him in the sun had gone behind the clouds. Of course it was still hot out! Cute outfit right?! His little shirts says Surfer Dude, ha ha! Dave was just asking me last night when this heat is going to go away here in CT...I had no answer! We are so excited to go to VA Beach in about a month with my family. The water will be nice and warm down there :)! All for now...

This past Saturday, my sister Jen, hosted a "goodbye" party for Dave's sister Laura and her husband Mike. They are leaving one week from tomorrow, same time that Dave leaves, to spend 6 months in Chile working with a local church there. The party had LOTS of kiddos which made it extra fun :)! Dave (and Laura's) mom, Louise, is up visiting from Myrtle Beach so it was great to have her there! We are going to miss Mike & Laura while they are gone but know that this is going to be such a good thing for them!

OK so I promise that not EVERY blog will be about my little boy but I couldn't resist putting this picture up. After a long day of work for Dave yesterday we took our first "Family Nap". I, of course, woke up before these two and HAD to snap a few pictures! So precious! Evan has started to change so much lately. He is 3 months old today!! He smiles a lot and even laughs sometimes. Last night he slept for 8 1/2 hours and I was THRILLED! Monday starts a long week for us with VBS starting. Dave always does a GREAT job but the prep work is always stressful. It is fun too of course :)!

Can I just say that Evan is SUCH a happy baby! Especially in the morning. He will just lay on his changing table, kick his legs, move his arms all around and give his mom and dad big smiles!
Except of course when he is hungry but don't you get cranky when your hungry?! It's hard to believe he is almost 3 months old now! He is getting so big but is still our little peanut. Summers are always busy for Dave & I with church activities etc. Next week VBS (Vacation Bible School) starts and that's always a super busy week for Dave. And then in 3 weeks Dave goes to Chile for 10 days. I am not really sure WHAT to expect during that time.

First Blog yahoo! Life has been so great and different since the birth of our son Evan in April! He is SUCH a joy and we love him so much. These pictures are from his very first 4th of July fireworks! Every year we have a cookout at my parents house and we all walk down to the fireworks in town. Very much a tradition. Doesn't he look so cute with his hat! No, it wasn't that cold out we just didn't want any bugs to get him. He did GREAT, once he fell asleep he did not wake up til we were home.
