we spent the weekend up in syracuse with nick's family.
his cousin, mckelle's baby shower was on saturday and his sister, kirstine's sweet little baby camryn was blessed on sunday. needless to say there was a whole lot of cute baby cuddling going on. and a whole lot of delicious food eating, movie watching, birthday shopping, real talking and laughing going on.

a new skate park just opened and the boys couldn't be happier.
i'm even a little excited about there being a park so close to home. every now and then i like to tag along because it's the perfect excuse to lay out in the sunshine with a book and/or camera. plus there are few things that i like to watch as much as skateboarding.

nicolaus and i had such a good time fishing up the canyon last weekend that we decided to do it again this weekend. so yesterday morning we started out the day with fresh donuts from a local bakery and headed up the canyon with abigayle, kerry & austin.
the spot seemed even more blissful and serene than before. the flowers were blooming, the sun was shining & the fish were biting. at least one particular rainbow trout was! i caught my very first fish via fly fishing! i even held it. it was kinda gross and i felt pretty bad for the fish...but i do have to admit it was really exciting and pretty magical to release it back into the river. nick just might be able to actually convert me to fly fishing...

this afternoon was one of my favorite babe's 1st birthday party. johnny is our good friends jake and ashley's baby. but he's hardly a baby anymore! he's got teeth and is walking around like nobody's business. it seems like he was just born yesterday. it's crazy.
but just sitting around, kickin' it & eating cake (i don't think anybody enjoyed their cake as much as the birthday boy) with friends on a warm afternoon was wonderful. summer is the best. friends are the best. and so are birthdays. have an amazing weekend! :)
