Hello July!

Wow, it's hard to believe that the month of June is over. Is it just me or is time just flying by these days? Well, we welcome July and all if has to offer with wide open arms ~ all the cookouts, sprinkler fun, swimming in the backyard, 4th of July celebration, and most importantly,... Isabella's third birthday.

We closed June out with quite the celebration. Our baby boy got baptized last Saturday night. Although his baptismal outfit was sent to him by his Tata before he was even born, luckily it fit (barely) and he looked quite handsome. Pastor Eli did the honors, which was great since I absolutely love him and he was also the one who baptized Isabella a couple of years ago.
Sam did great during the ceremony. We are so proud of our sweet angel, what an unbelievable blessing he is. Afterwards we hosted dinner at our house and had an awesome time with our friends and family.

On Sunday we headed to downtown for a Redbirds game with Scott's sister and her family. It was a very hot, sunny day and unfortunately our seats were not under any shade. At one point Scott asked Isabella if she was having fun to which she replied: "NO". Then he asked her if she liked baseball, which was met with another unenthusiastic: "NO". It was a scorcher and I decided it was probably time to take the kids out of the sun. Fortunately the game wasn't sold out so we were all able to relocate to other seats under the shade. This made for a more enjoyable, or less miserable, experience, depends on who you ask.

The highlight of the day for Isabella was definitely watching the ducks swimming inside the Peabody Hotel. She couldn't get enough of it and we certainly weren't complaining while we cooled off in the beautiful air-conditioned hotel.
