The Best Summer

mmm....watermelon

 Owen 'graduated' from his first class at the Little Gym. He takes a tumbling class there that is absolutely awesome and we look forward to it every week. We've decided to continue taking him to classes there at least through the end of the year... this place rocks! Anyway, Matt was able to attend the graduation class and join in on a little fun.





Here's a video of Owen getting his medal. So stinkin' cute!!

 This boy would live in his sandbox if he could. He absolutely loves it. We have to make sure the back door latches every time we let our dogs out otherwise Owen bolts straight for the sandbox!


He also LOVES playing in water. It doesn't matter where it is or how he gets to it, if there's water Owen will find it and manage to soak himself. ...and loves every single minute of it. 



different day, but oh so funny!

Owen and I took a trip to Pittsburgh to visit Matt's brother and family. This picture cracks me up because it totally sums up what these boys are like together...Owen = crazy, Max = (looking at Owen) who is this wierdo?! :) 


breaking out the wrestling moves already!



Playing in the water again!

 Owen first time on grandma and grandpa Rings' boat! He loved it, for the most part. 


 He was on it for 5 whole minutes before he fell asleep.








This is Owen's 'all done' look. I love it! Also notice his diaper is hanging all the way to his knees...we ran out of swim diapers! haha. :) We had the best time!


 We've also been spending many days at the local Splash Parks. They are AWESOME! 





this photo just makes me laugh... :) that's my boy!


And finally the most recent awesomeness was going to the NKOTBSB concert!!! It was SO MUCH FUN.







Oh and our seats? amazing!!

Say hello to Mr Carter...


and Mr. Littrell :)



Oh yes, I shook their hand!!! ahhh!

Such a FUN concert and I'm so glad I was able to finally see my favorite band from elementary school! how crazy is that that I can even say that!?! just awesome. :)

Pictures galore

Finally got Owen's 1 year pictures back. I've been dying to see them and am so happy we have so many good ones to choose from...at least of Owen! Family shots on the other hand, not so much but what do you expect with a 1 year old? So here are some of my favorites. :)








 This one just makes me laugh!

Firsts

Owen has had many firsts lately... they are too fun not to share! Last month we made a trip to Pittsburgh to visit Matt's brother Ben and his family. So what's more cute than two little cousins taking their first bath together? They were soooo fun. Here's Owen trying to brush Max's teeth while in the tub. It was HILARIOUS!

Here's Owen's first time using chop sticks. :) He was quite good at it actually.

Owen's first encounter with the sprinkler! He loved it!! 



His first trip to an outdoor pool. We went with our friends Shawn and Meredith who have a daughter, Reese. Owen and Reese get along so great. They had a blast together!





And finally Owen's first 'official' haircut. (I trimmed the back of his hair right before his birthday) I took him to a place called Cookie Cutters which specialize in kids haircuts. They have all sorts of fun stuff to keep the kids occupied while getting their hair cut. Owen did great! I absolutely love this picture of him. Who knew we would have a little blondie! :)
