crazy, busy summer (june)

It seems like from the very day I got out of school in the end of June, Aaron and I have been running. Every weekend in July and August spoken for, vacations, grad classes, weddings, and church softball. We've had a very full summer, but have had plenty of fun too.

The last week in June we went on vacation with my beloved college roommate Natalie and her husband Josh. We went to the jersey shore and had more than our share of fun! They are such awesome friends- funny and laid back and it made vacation perfect! Nat and I did all the things together that the guys weren't interested in like biking on the boardwalk and getting up to see the sun rise. We gorged ourselves on all you can eat crabs, 28 inch pizzas, and of course (per Nat's request) ice cream every night :) It was precious time with friends that we don't get to spend nearly enough time with!

love her!

way too much to eat...


being studious...

can you tell it's 5 am?

biking... we got too close to hitting a large number of people on the boardwalk and decided that we should probably just take the streets back instead ;)

crazy, busy summer (july)

We attended 3 (yes, 3!) weddings in the month of July. The fourth of July was spent celebrating Lauren and Nathan Eakin's wedding, the following weekend we roadtripped it out to Indiana University to celebrate with Nate and Amber Todd, and made our way to Scranton, PA the end of July for my great friend and fellow teacher Sara Lucarella's wedding. We are so excited for all of them and love them to death :)

July was also spent traveling all over the eastern United States. Aaron went to his college roommate Tommy's bachelor party in West Virginia, I traveled to Pittsburgh to celebrate my great friend Amy's bachelorette party, and I also went to Deep Creek, Maryland to reunite with my fellow Geneva Women's Soccer alumni.

July also brought my nephews and sister to the eastern part of the state to hang out. We went swimming, watched "untle awin's" softball games, and went to the please touch museum in Philly. We had a fun week and miss the boys like always!

crazy, busy summer (august)

August was full of vacations... we went to Canada with Aaron's family. We had some great weather and enjoyed our time up there as usual. It was really nice seeing our Kewley cousins since they live in Virginia and Oklahoma! The dogs loved being in Canada because they were allowed off leash and were able to roam where they wanted. It was awesome just seeing them be dogs and made us feel bad when we had to leash them after we left! We left Canada a few days early and headed to my parent's cottage in Tionesta, PA. We were there during the Indian Festival and got to go to the parade and of course golfing. We feel so blessed to have such incredible families and cherish our time spent with them!

The end of August has brought soccer season and the start of rugby for Aaron. Soccer has been fun and exhausting. I am enjoying the opportunity to coach- it reminds me how much I miss soccer and playing! We also purchased an SUV!!! We bought a Honda Pilot and are loving all of the room, as opposed to our 2 little sedans. I know, I know, it's not very earth friendly, but I figure having a hybrid balances it out ;)

our new car!

After such a crazy, busy summer I feel more tired than refreshed, but it's okay because we had so much fun in all of it! I keep thinking that maybe, just maybe, life will slow down sometime soon :)
