Our Summer...

Hope everyone is having a good summer! We are having fun...mostly just staying home and playing in the backyard. It's not so easy to get out with a 3 month old!! Nathan just had a birthday and Hannah LOVED helping make cupcakes for his birthday. (actually I think she liked eating the batter more!) I took Nathan to a braves game for his birthday(without kids)... We had a great time except for the fact that we lost to the Red Sox :( July 4th was fun too except of course I forgot to take pictures of them in their cute red, white and blue outfits! Hopefully next summer we will get to spend more time at some pools!

I am not actually sure if Faith was having as much fun as Hannah!!!

Wedding Weekend

I had the privilege of being in one of my best friend's weddings this weekend. My friend Amy Parker, who I met when my mom and I moved to Hungary, was married this past weekend. We had a great time getting to see several old friends from Hungary and I got to introduce several people to Nathan who were great friends of mine.   

We traveled to Alabama with both kids and they did surprisingly well for the 2 1/2 hr car ride. We only had one minor peeing in the car seat accident when there was NO gas station anywhere in the middle of Alabama and poor Hannah had to go potty!! I should add here that we were not alone. My mom and Jeff (anya and papa) came along to go to the wedding and also to be the babysitters for the whole weekend. I have to say that if I hadn't had them there the weekend would NOT have gone so well. They were a HUGE help. I enjoyed a bridal luncheon and a pedicure and Nathan and I were able to enjoy the rehearsal dinner without children. They were wonderful during the wedding and didn't even make a sound...

What a beautiful reminder it was to see a Christian wedding and to be reminded of how marriage is to give us a visible representation of Christ and the church and not just for temporal pleasure while here on earth. I was reminded of how we are to strive to make sure our marriage is a beautiful representation of this truth and not to misrepresent Christ in our marriage. Ephesians 5: 22-33 was used in their ceremony and I think sums it up well....

"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband."

May 6th was my 24th birthday... Birthdays just aren't as fun anymore as you get older I am figuring out. I had a great day. Nathan and Hannah woke me up with breakfast in bed and then Nathan also took care of doing dinner that evening. What a sweet husband I have! Since we couldn't go out without the kids on my birthday, we went out a couple nights later (just the 2 of us) and he took me to a wonderful dinner at Aspens steakhouse and for a stroll around the Avenue at West Cobb. We had a great time on our first date alone without the 2 kids. Well, Rylee is now 5 weeks old and growing SO fast. His big sister takes care of him constantly. Hannah is potty training right now and doing SO good. I wasn't even planning on potty training her and she just wanted to go a couple of times in her potty and then I was like "oh great" I need to keep letting her go if she wants to... so it happened.  I had to keep being consistent. Of course I am sure the M & M's as a prize have helped her to be consistent too :) 
Here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks...
