Wow, seriously, we did it go? I had such wonderful plans to blog all summer updating you on our pregnancy, trips and home improvement projects, but that just didn't happen. I think this was the fastest summer ever, seriously....12 total weeks, 6 of those were summer school, 3 others were 1 week trips and the other 3 were just busy, with 2 being the final weeks of summer which are typically filled with school events and preparation.
Here are some pictures of the rest of the summer.
First Ride on the boat!
Fourth of July for Fireworks on the boat. Starting to see a baby bump.
Best Buds on the Fourth.
Thanks Patti for watching the kids so Bryan and Janice could join us.
While Dad and Kelly were in France we offered to watch Fiona. While she is a fabulous, very well trained dog, we realized that we are not quite ready to be dog owners.
She loved our backyard (Dad doesn't have one, just a balcony), but by the end of the week she was filthy. So, we gave her a bath. Even in the bath, she was so well behaved.
This is where Fiona liked to sleep at night. I didn't mind, she is such snuggle bug.
Happy 4th Anniversary to us!
Andrew surprised me with a spa day and night at the Grand Geneva. It was fabulous!
10 year Stevenson Band Reunion. So good to see everyone and catch up.
Me and Maynard at a Mallards game for Jeanette's birthday.
Happy Birthday J!
We were in the Duck Blind for the first time. I could not partake in the all you could drink, but let me tell you, it was worth it for the all you can eat!
Andrew's Aunt, Uncle and Cousin visit from Seattle! This was near Maddy's sorority house on the UW campus.
We had to take them to the Terrace for some ice cream!
More boat rides. While this summer was too hot to enjoy the boat as much as we would have liked, we did get to take some with friends and family.
Janice and Jake enjoying the ride.
Hayden loves to take the wheel.

At the end of the summer, we took a road trip to Destin, FL with my mom, step-dad Mike and his kids. We had a house and spent a lot of time on the beach. It was a great way to end the summer.
Andrew and I where we sat for pretty much the entire week. Enjoying the waves, but staying out of the sun.
An Irish Pub in Destin. When you go you have to staple a dollar to the ceiling or walls. They have over a million dollars stapled up in that place. It was pretty cool.
We had to participate!
Our buck stapled to the ceiling. In case you can't read it, it says Andrew, Paige & Baby Porky. August 2012.
Ange, Mom and I took a ride on 30A, a scenic road on the Gulf. We stopped and enjoyed lunch and many shops. This was one of the stops.
We took a night to enjoy a dinner just ourselves. The restaurant was right on the pier.
Even though the summer was fast, it was great as always. It's so nice to be able to spend some quality time with our family and friends. It's especially nice to be able to spend some time just the two of us together. We can't wait until next summer when we have off and will have a little nugget to spend out time with.
