Full days!

Can you believe how fast the summer is flying? The past month has been busy with friends and celebrations in between the responsibilities of daily life. A few highlights:














^^spending a weekend with Grandpa and Grandma









^^ Katy flew in to visit for several! After only keeping in touch via- skype and texting for 12 months, it was such a delight to catch up with her. And Arianna promptly adopted her as another aunt. {smile}


^^off to a bridal/bachelorette party!

















^^Dan ran in world's longest relay. 339 miles across Iowa. 47 hours, 4 minutes. {Can I say IMPRESSIVE?}




^^ reading love letters and celebrating FOUR years of wearing this gorgeous ring. A little heaven on earth!


^^melt-in-your-mouth molasses cookies for the birthday boy at my house















^^ Saturday morning smiles.
{We like weekends!}















^^ Celebrating summer by riding the ferris wheel at the Navy Pier!



^^getting to be such a big girl and becoming quite the little helper! {She was so disappointed we couldn't bring the cart home!}



And now I'm off to pack and prepare for a road trip to Nebraska to celebrate the 4th of July with family and friends! What are you plans for the weekend?

Thanks for the update, Bethany!
Wow, you've been married 4 years? Where has time gone? Congratulations!
For Independence Day we're having a family reunion! FUN, FUN!
339 mile RELAY? That's so cool! It must be really hard....
