Ty and E

In mid-September, my good friend Kimmy and her daughter Eleanor came in town from Cali to visit family and friends. I was lucky enough to see them twice during their trip. Ty and Eleanor are best buds. It was incredibly rewarding to watch them interact and play. They are only 13 days apart and do see each other probably only about 3 or 4 times a year, given the distance. They just fall right back into being the best playmates. I have about a million pictures of them playing. Here are a few of my favs! How cute are they?!...seriously!

Labor Day Weekend

I know, I know...I'm ridiculously behind...again! But I swear I have a good excuse and they are cheerleading and Homecoming! More about that later. But, back in September, we headed up to Michigan yet again to spend a long weekend in Sister Lakes with my family. We were also celebrating my brother's birthday while we were there. Ty is getting more and able to participate in the adventures at the lake, which has been fun. The big milestones this trip were jumping off the dock and swimming freely in the lake and riding on the jet ski with Mike and me. We had a great time, as always!

We were also able to stop by Indy to see my good friends Kelly and Randy, who just had a son (Ethan Christopher) in August.
Seeing what it would be like to be a family of four...yikes. And as you can see...Ty was zonked out the entire time we visited.
