Labor Day Weekend 2015

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Abby turned 2-6! some point I'm sure I'll stop counting, but 26 isn't bad so that's how old I am.  Broghan likes to call me old though but only because I'm 11 months older than him.  This years birthday was awesome! Technically we celebrated Keller's birthday on my birthday (see last post) so my little family (Broghan, me & Keller) celebrated my birthday a day early on Saturday the 28th.  I couldn't have planned it better! The weather was awesome and so we got up and headed down (on foot) to the local farmer's market.  It's about a mile and half walk down so with a dog and stroller it took a little while but we weren't in a hurry.  We strolled through the market, picked up a few items, and went down by the river to let Marvin swim.  

Headed back felt like a forever trip, mostly because we had to hike back up the hill to our neighborhood.  

But we made it and took a much need break.  Well, Keller & I did, Broghan went to work fixing a fan in our kitchen that up until now had not worked.  Once fixed and rested, we headed out to the local wineries for some wine sampling (and subsequently purchasing 4 bottles of wine).  Along the way, I was given something beautiful and that sparkles, DIAMOND EARRINGS! yea! Thanks hubby! 

To end an amazing day, Keller went to sleep like a little champ and Broghan & I got to enjoy dinner outside by the bonfire while drinking a bottle of wine...ahh so nice.  It's always interesting to ponder what next year's birthday will bring ;)

Keller's turned O-N-E!

We survived the year! Wahoo! Strange to think where we were just a year ago.

SO in celebration, we invited the grandparents and some local friends out to a park near our house to have a lunch and of course, shower Keller with gifts.  I don't have a ton of pictures of the event but I have some.  We also by-passed the traditional cake but don't worry, Keller got messy in some other deliciousness...(Janet-if you read this, I am missing pictures of you with Keller-man so if you have any, send 'em over and I'll add them!)

A whole month!

So it's been a month, and I can't really count how many blog posts I've started and just deleted or started and never finished.  I think when you get this far behind on the 'updating' it just seems daunting and like a task I don't really want to undertake. it goes, its been raining ALL day, I've decided NOT to cook/bake anything since we're going out of town tomorrow afternoon and there are enough left overs to feed us or at least get us through to tomorrow.  Keller is being his self-entertaining self and I'm quite frankly, bored out of my mind.  So here it goes.  Time to update.  I'll do my best to be detailed but I have a feeling these will be short snippets of what we've been up to.  I'll do my best to keep them in order!
