I know, I know. . .

Okay, so it goes without saying that I have done a TERRIBLE job updating our blog for the past month, but the truth is, we have been having so much fun NOT being in the hospital, that I just haven't had many opportunities to sit down and write!

As always, there is so much to say, but so little time to say it, so I will once again resort to sharing the happenings of the previous month in the form of pictures (I am sure no one will object) and vow to do a better job at updating in the future!

We started the month with two road trips to Great-Grandma's house (known to us as "Big Mom") in Morehead, Kentucky


On the first trip we visited a craft fair and saw neat things like this. . .


The second trip was the annual golf outing to raise money for the American Cancer Society and the Steve Hamilton Foundation (Steve Hamilton was my grandpa)

(Justin, Daddy, Big Dog, Uncle Ben. . .they came in dead last, but they had fun doing it)

The Hamilton/Monnett/Terry/Fightmaster/Turner/Rieben Family

We spent lots of time in the pool. . .


And celebrated the great nation we live in and those who fight for our freedom by attending the Air Force Tattoo and the community 4th of July Parade. . .



Big Dog, Uncle Ben, Nana and Daddy participated in the Vandalia Freedom Tour (Daddy and Uncle Ben did the 100k (63 miles), Nana and Big Dog the 50k (35 miles) all in the pouring rain)!



All-in-all, we have had a wonderful time being together as a family. . .

And when all was said and done. . . .we were so tired, we fell asleep in our food. . .
