Our final summer fun...

This summer Peighton and I spent several months traveling and visiting family. We drove all the way to South Carolina to visit my parents, my grandma, a few of my cousins, a few great friends, and the BEACH! Here are a few photos....

My parents recently moved back to the beach so we visited several times, but here are a few pics from the last visit. 
 She had a great time playing with her bath toys in the sand :)  
 I managed to get one or two good pictures while we were there. But, she was not a fan of the cold sand in the morning.

 We got to see my Godmother Sue, Erin (my "sister"/bridesmaid), her daughter Ruthie, and my "aunt" Lorraine- it was so nice visiting and catching up with so many people. 

We ended our summer vacation with a trip to Howe's Cavern, NY (before a 3 day road trip, ER trip, sick baby, and lots of issues-that's for a later post) with my favorite Uncle's wedding. It was so much fun and a beautiful mini-vacation before returning to Colorado. Here are those pics.....

My aunt and uncle were married at a beautiful location Howe's Cavern, NY. Everything was gorgeous and specially detailed for their personalities. My uncle is a "ghost hunter" and during the ceremony they lit a candle for several people (including my grandfather) who passed away. While they were doing this the wind blew and the candle would not light...the weather was gorgeous and no wind the rest of the ceremony...hmm

My new Aunt Krissy is a writer. At each table setting was a copy of her newest book and a very detailed program with stories about each wedding party member and stories about the couple. It was very refreshing to read about each person rather than wonder who they are or how they know your family.

The wedding location had so much for guests to do including zip lining, rock climbing, bat cave tours, and a restaurant and delicious fudge shop on location. There was plenty for everyone to do. 

 I got such a kick out of this phone. I did have to try dial tone :(

 Ok if you read my blog enough you know we're HUGE Yankee this one for my hubby. My second cousin Tim has a Yankee 2009 World Series Ring....I got to wear it :) :) 
 This picture was just for hubby. Put it on right near my wedding close as it can get to my heart :) (obviously not as close as hubby and Peighton)

 Peighton was pooped....all these people, all this fresh air she was exhausted. This is my oldest sister and I. It was great to spend time with her and catch up and of course to introduce her to our miracle baby. 

I have tons of more pictures to share from our adventurous summer, but with a party to finish putting together for a certain special one year old I have to stop here for now. I'll share tons more in a few days. 

Goodnight and God bless
