Summer Hodge-Podge

We have been super busy this summer! I don't have a lot of time to tell you what we've been up to, but I was able to upload some pictures for you (plus, I know that's really all you want to see!) We are headed to the beach again today and next weekend, so I'm sure I will have lots more pictures to share after Labor Day.
Playtime with Silas!
Arden has been able to pull up in her bed for a couple of months now. This is how I usually find her in the mornings or after a nap. She normally has a big smile on her face and is ready to go :)
We had the joy of keeping T and TT(from Lincoln Village) on Thursday nights and during the day on Fridays for 5 weeks before school started. We really loved having them in our home--they played so well together and with Arden and were also big helpers around the house! We really miss them and hope they can come back soon. (They took these pictures of themselves--didn't they do a great job?!)

At the end of July, we took Arden to her first Huntsville Stars baseball game. Even though it was extremely HOT, she had a great time--especially when she made friends with the 3yr. old boy behind us :)

Uncle Brad (Geoff's brother) came for a visit at the end of July. Arden enjoyed spending time with him--she hopes he can visit again really soon!
We spent 10 days at the beach at the beginning of this month. It's definitely a different experience now that we have 2 babies with us, but we had lots of fun. We can't wait to spend the next two weekends there too!

Arden's first experience with corn on the cob. She LOVED it--this kept her quiet and busy during dinner :) I think we will have to try this more often!

On a dolphin-watching cruise

Sorry, no pictures of dolphins (even though we did see lots!), but here's two exhausted babies!
Arden must be REALLY tired to fall asleep like this!

Eating at Lulu's before heading home. I couldn't get them to look at the camera at the same time because they were too interested in eating crackers!
"Hmmm, how can I get to that cracker piece before Silas gets it?"
"Since I can't reach it, I guess I will just eat the table!"
