Our trip and some updates with lots of pics

I love this boy so much!

Sweet baby boy

Relaxing on the porch before dinner, we had hamburgers on the grill,yummy!

View of their very quiet non busy country road ahhh

Nanner and his buddy

After breakfast one morning pardon me looking a little shall we say just got up and not dressed yet lol

Nanner with his new friends, very hard to get three babies to look at a camera at the same time

Pictures of their cute little town

All of us together, our gracious hosts, they also have two other lovely daughters not seen in this photo 9 yrs and 16 yrs.My older boys were with their dad while we were gone as he was on shut down for work for a bit and wanted to spend time with them while he could.

Yup I am a bad blogger It has been forever since my last post. So I know I have so much to catch up on that I am way overwhelmed.First of all we had a wonderful trip to go meet a friend/fellow blogger in real life.They were so kind and generous and opened their home to us.They have a beautiful home and had a room all set up just for us.We had a really good time relaxing,chatting and spending time with them. We even played a Wii for the very first time in our lives,I know "gasp" hard to believe we are so out of the loop but we are. We went on a couple of walks with our babies (nanner loved playing with his new friends) and they showed us around their town. We didn't have much time to spend as most of our time was spent on the road (only 2 1/2 days)but that's ok as what was really important to me was I finally got a chance to meet my friend and her family in person :-). She has a lovely family and they were all very welcoming to us.I am not choosing to be overly identifying of her and her family as she is a bit more private than I am. So I am going to respect that so I will include a few pics but no names or links.I guess I will try to catch up on as much as possible using bullet form.

-Nanner is now 7 months old holy moly! 17 pounds 4 ounces 26 1/2 inches tall

-He is now crawling like crazy and eating us out of house and home lol we are starting him on a sippy cup, that is going umm so so, he also appears to be teething and seems to be in pain and more fussy from it this week,actually quite a bit more

-I have been mostly using facebook to post pics and updates lately, partially due to ease(you can upload a ton more pics at once so that is where I upload most of mine) so if you wanna friend me on there please just send your facebook name in an email(it's on my blog) and who you are blogwise and I will send you an friend invite

-Only 24 pounds to go until my goal weight and 5 until my prepregnancy weight (I am down more than 2 sizes in clothing)

-Hubby,the boys and I have been walking for at least an hour and half (usually more) about 3-4 times a week

-I haven't been on here much because of all the walking, swimming, yard work and time that we are trying to spend outdoors while the weather is good I promise I will be around more once it's gets colder ( I am in Michigan ya know :-) )

-I have been reading blogs still and trying to comment when time permits, but I am reading still

Well I guess that is about all I have time for right now I sure do miss hearing from you girls. I hope everyone is doing well.((hugs))

Great pics - I also have that same "Surf" shirt from Old Navy.I don't know when you bought yours, but I bought mine last month on the clearance rack for about $3-$4! I love Old Navy! :)

Glad to hear your trip was relaxing and fun! It's so amazing to watch new friendships blossom! Babies and parents! What is your FB link-I'm on FB too!

Your little sweetie is just getting so big it's just simply amazing how quickly they grow and how short their "tiny baby" time is! My boy is going to be two in just over a month-that means 6 months has flown by and our little girl is just over a month ALREADY! holy cow!

Where does the time go! Love your pics and post! Congratulations on the weight loss the remaining will be a breeze!

Good for you on meeting your goal. And Nanner is such an adorable little muffin! He is just growing so fast. I can't believe it.

How fun that you got to meet a bloggy friend. It sounds and looks like you ladies had a great time. :)
