The easiest way to get to my friend Mandie's blog is to go through the link on our blog. Every time I passed by ours I felt a little bit worse about slacking on posts this summer. The guilt of not posting anything since July finally got to me. We really did do stuff the rest of the summer. Lots of stuff. And then it got really, really hot and we holed up in the house most weekends or spent time in the pool. To ease my guilt, you get pictures. Not a lot of explanation, but this is the best I've got right now. Getting ready for Amery's birthday, family visits, and a certain baby girl are taking up a lot of time right now!
