Whirlwind Time

Have I moaned about my summer on here yet? 'Cuz if not I've been slacking!

I've been moaning to everyone I know about how busy my summer schedule is.

Brian's last day of school was last Wednesday (the 18th) and from there we have begun our low flying pattern.

Friday noon-ish we left for Oregon, stopping to visit great-grandparents in The Dalles and then staying the night with our friends in Portland and getting to meet their baby girl for the first time!

Saturday morning we headed down to Newberg for the family gathering. Brian's grandparents are celebrating 60 years this summer and we almost managed to have every family member in attendance! (One missing was on a plane headed to work on a cruise ship for the summer)

Uncle Butch, I really need a copy of your pics from this!

After a very long day there for Cory we continued our trip to Corvallis to stay with Brian's parents. Cousin Vicki came with us as she and I spent most of Sunday and Monday doing a photo shoot! There are some awesome places to take pictures around the OSU campus and I think we had some fun while we were at it!

Tuesday we headed back to Newberg to visit some more friends home just for the summer from Kenya. We haven't seen them in over 2 years so it was really a treat.

Oh, and Cory said his first real word that we recognized! Josh brought out a ball for the boys to play with and without any prompting or anyone labeling it, Cory said "ball"!!!

The rest of the day was spent with the grandparents again so they could have some one-on-one time with Cory without all the craziness of 20+ extended family members there!

Wednesday was for relaxing, mostly, and then going to dinner at some friends house who have a couple of little ones and just talking.

Thursday, Andrea took Cory and I to breakfast at a French pastry cafe. So fun! I had to get an extra pastry because Cory ate most of mine. And at one point I went to get something and then turned around to see Cory and his grandma looking at each other across the table just like it was only him and her at breakfast. So cute!

Grandma's teaching Cory all kinds of new things!

Friday we headed home, stopping for a few hours in The Dalles again. Grandpa whupped both of us at cribbage.

By the time we got home Cory was sooooo tired of being in the car! Doing it all in one day is 7+ hours of driving. Not so fun. He did pretty well considering though!

Saturday morning I got up and took Cory to Walk for Life. It was pushing 100 degrees here so we were hot and sticky by the time we got done. But I think Cory decided it was okay since we got to come home with 4 balloons! I guess sometimes it pays to be the last ones done. :)

Now as you read this, we are probably in Spokane attending the wedding of a college friend. Brian gets to be an usher and I hope to have fun playing with my camera.

This is pretty much what our summer looks like from here on out... someone save me please!

Oh, and one more thing. Cory LOVED Grandma and Grandpa's pool. But since this is quite long enough already I think that will be a post for another day...
