Photos from July

Okay, so this whole post is going to be a little backwards in the timeline, but oh well. I have finally downloaded the pictures from the past month or so, so here are the highlights:
This is a picture of Josh's new sleeping accomidations. I actually just meant to take a picture of the bed, but Josh came running in and plopped himself down for the photo shoot. He is such a ham. But yeah, he no longer sleeps in his crib, he sleeps in his boat bed. True it takes him several hours to fall asleep rather than a few minutes now, but hopefully he will get used to it soon.
Josh's friend, Tommy, is in a lot of these pictures because whenever he comes over, that is when Josh is his funniest. And so for some reason, I always find reasons to pull the camera out when they are together. In these next two, I was trying to get them to smile, but both of them were completely serious, it was so funny. They wanted to put their faces right up in the camera and just stare. Crazy kids.

Josh actually took this picture, his Aunt Cassie taught him how to push the button and he has come to love it.

In the middle of July, my little (okay not so little anymore) brothers came to visit. We went to the drive-in (Chanson brought his friend), and it was a lot of fun. I miss them already.

We went on a little hike with them too, and this is the only picture I took from the whole thing. :)

Josh loves to be outside, especially when it is raining. We were out on our porch, and the railings get his little hands all black. So that mixed with the rain and he kept trying to get the water off his face, it turned his whole face a gray color. I was laughing so hard, but he wasn't very happy with me delaying getting him dry once we got inside. :)

Some more of Josh and Tommy in Josh's new tent. They loved this thing!

More photos of the brothers. They are so handsome and old! Both of them are taller than me now (although, that isn't really hard to do).

We call Josh "Puggles" sometimes and Chanson says we stole his nickname since that is what we called him when he was a kid. So, this is a picture of the two puggles. And yes, Josh is in a box.

Our friend, Dr. Mosser always goes all out for Tyson and my birthday. She is so cute. This year she got us the best cake I have ever eaten in my whole life. It was part white and part chocolate with rasperry filling and fudge frosting. Talk about amazing!

I love July because the first week is a sweet party for our family. Not only do Tyson and I both have our birthdays, but it is also our anniversary. This year we really splurged and stayed overnight at a hotel. I brought sparkling grape juice, we went and saw a Shakespeare play, and we ate the yummiest food. Not to mention it was the first and only night I have spent away from Josh. It was kind of hard for me, but at the same time, sooo nice. Thanks Bunk and Chris!

I love my Hunny Bunches!

This is Josh's cute outfit from Tyson's Aunt Judy. He loves it because it has dogs on it.

This is what happens when you give a kid a donut to eat all by themselves. Tyson and I are serious suckers for the clearance pastries at Walmart. And our poor child is going to have all of our bad, but very yummy, habits.

We like to take Josh to Boxerwood, and there is tons of fun stuff there. These are pictures from when Logan and Tommy met us there. Josh kept trying to put his fingers in the pond and the fish were trying to eat them, so Logan kept saving Josh for us.

Josh and Tommy, having way too much fun together. Tommy taught Josh the value of sticks and how much fun they are. This is them, chilling in the hammock together.
