June is almost half over and I have not posted here since Mother’s Day. Yikes!
In the meantime, we made a trip to MN for our annual Henning Family Reunion. We had a lot of fun. The kids look forward to this so much. It’s so funny to me because they only see my cousin’s children once a year, but they love spending time with them and pick up like no time has passed.
This time we chose to bring Max along on our trip. It made our drive a little more tricky, but worked out alright. For the two nights we were at the reunion location, he stayed in a kennel. The rest of the time, he was at Dad & Joyce’s with us. I even bought a belly band for dogs to keep him from being able to mark anything in their house. It worked really well.
I turned 40! I have mixed feelings on it. Isn’t 40 sort of old? We spent the day of my birthday at Valley Fair. It wasn’t intentionally planned as a way to mark my birthday. It just ended up being the best weather day of the week to go. We had so much fun. No crazy rides. The wildest ride I did was the old 40-year-old roller coaster with my dad 🙂
Last Monday night, I celebrated my birthday with a group of my friends. I felt so loved. My friend, Miranda, decided she wanted to do a party for me and took care of all the details. It was perfect.
Nathan worked a ton of hours last week. Even though he took a half day of vacation last Monday, he ended up working 56 hours (give or take) last week. The project they have been working on is mostly done.
Yesterday, after church, Audrey and I spent the afternoon together. We get a pedicure! Audrey chose pink and I chose blue.
We’ve been spending time at the local pool 🙂
And just for fun, here is last year’s first day at the pool picture:
And the previous year:
Look at that baby face on Isaac. Crazy how fast they grow!
