A few friends and their kids.

Trene (on the far left) is always so good about getting us all together.  Elaine in the front is moving about 2 hours away, so we were celebrating a little bit.

The kids out back just playing away.

Scarlett especially liked their play room.  Thanks Trene for the wonderful day!

A day in Columbus

Of course, we had to visit Columbus while we were in Ohio.  Especially because Uncle Alex goes to school there and it was his 21st birthday!

We found good ol' brutus in the student union.  Which by the way, check out this Glee Clip!  We walked the halls and this clip will show you how big it is!!

Scarlett was singing Brutus the fight song!!

Uncle Alex and Scarlett just loving the camera!!

A day in the life

Nana and Scarlett spelling out O-H-I-O

If you look closely, you can see the stadium in the background of Scarlett's window.  She was enjoying the view from the top floor of the library.

Uncle Alex was trying to explain to Scarlett that if you are right handed you can move the tray and if you are left handed you can move it to the other side.... this might have been one of the highlights of her day....who knew, a chair could be so entertain-able. 

I was so bummed as we didn't take any pictures when we went to eat at the Cheesecake Factory at Easton.

Early morning stop

While we were in Ohio, our early morning stops usually consist of visiting Grandma Mensching daily.

I love her buildings and cars and the rustic look of things.  It was so nice to catch up with her and learn so much more about her.  I am so excited to share those things with my girls someday!!

Scarlett loved her playhouse!  She played and played!!

We even sang Happy Birthday to Grandma Mensching and attempted to give her a ho-ho, but Scarlett ate them!

On our way to Ohio

Ashley, Me and my mother in law, Vicki went out with a few girlfriends for sushi before we left for Ohio. 

and yes, Ashley put the sushi in her mouth but spit it back out. 

In the airport, our one way flight turned into about a 7 hour delay....ahhhh

we were desperate for entertainment...

Beautiful Sandestin... taking a picture of part of the resort as we were leaving.  Click on the name as you can see a little bit more of the place where we stayed.

We had so much fun!  Grandma I-I and Aunt Ashley came to watch the girls as Ryan and I got away for a little trip for our 30th.  (not our 30th anniversary, our 30th birthdays!!)

We had dinner's each night as we were sorta there for Smuckers, but this girl took full advantage of the resort, pool and beach.

Comedian night was so much fun!  But well, lets just say none of you will ever know what exactly went on that night but lets just say that Jill Butler was a little speechless, and that doesn't happen often.  I was not mentally prepared to go on stage with this comedian. Which might I add, I told Ryan later that he must have been a christian comedian because everything was soooo funny and soooo clean.  It was really enjoyable!

Just the middle of July

July was a fun, hot and busy month!!

Rachael and I chilling out at the Conch house.  It's a new little place that the Butler's have just visited and it is on a Marina.  We had so much fun!!

Out for ice cream at the beach and tried to get a picture of all of us in it... um, didn't really work!

So, Willow never really held her own bottle.  Yep, kind of a pain.  I think it was from breastfeeding and just not giving her a bottle.  Or it could be that she is spoiled.  I kinda vote for the second one.  What do you think?  I know you are thinking, this is One Hot Mess.

Daddy, Scarlett and Tents....that's all I am sayin.

Nails continued through the night. 

Even baby Kora got in on some Nail fun.

I just love this picture of all the girls (and a few boys) in on the picture!!

Reese was cooking away in our kitchen.  We are so glad our family came into town.  We had so much fun!!

Part of the Ingold family just relaxing.

Let's Play

Willow Bean at Let's Play, getting spoiled!!

During the summer, our church hosted a bible study at "let's play."  It's an indoor play land and it worked out great.  The kids can play while we get a quick hour or so of Beth Moore in.

We did the Inherience study and I have to say, it was one of my favorites!!

Later that day, we went to the Hammock, where everyone was staying and swam.  Although I think we have cousin lovin goin on!!
