Summer Lovin’ ….us too!

…and what a crazy summer its been!? Its been a while since I’ve had a minute to LOOK at photos I’ve taken this summer, much less BLOG about them! We are getting settled here in Eugene…and thought I’d make one BIG blog about our summer adventures. It’s hard to believe all of this happened in a few short months! I loved the craziness of our summer…but it is nice to slow down and get back into a routine.

Dre seems to have inherited my love for the beach and the pool–and so any moment that we weren’t busy packing…Dre and I were at the beach!

I asked 2 of my beautiful sisters to come out for a farewell New York tour and side road trip to Ohio for a wedding. We had an amazing time with LOTS of laughs! Here are a few of our ‘Farewell NY’ photos…

We cruised all over the city-including the High Line, Washington Square and the ever entertaining and unique Coney Island!

After 4 years of attempting to get tickets…I finally got tickets to a taping of The View! What a coincidence that my sisters happened to be here at the same time..AND within weeks of us leaving! I’m a huge fan of Barbara Walters and was once again completely charmed by her effortless grace. Whoopi on the other hand…maybe not so graceful but totally HAlarious!

We also jacked tickets to Jimmy Fallon–always high energy and super fun! We got to see the uber cute Elijah Wood, the beautiful Freida Pinto and of course…The Roots!

Here are 2 screen shots from the show…as always…the Jimmy Fallon show is full of shenanigans!

One of the most important parts of our summer was Wayne defending his thesis…and passing! I couldn’t be more proud of this super smart, super handsome man!

In my eyes there is nothing more stunning that a beautiful Marchesa gown…but the Niagara Falls may just give Marchesa run for their money! We had to make a quick trip to Canada to exchange our visa’s…and it was a fantastic little getaway. I’ve seen a zillion photos of the falls…and yet when you see them yourself…you are at a loss for words. Beautiful. Simply Beautiful.

Staring at the clouds

Ahhh. Summer is here and we are enjoying every minute of it! Dre and I spend our days with all kinds of lazy activities–laying on our backs staring at the leaves (he finds it totally fascinating), he loves going for long walks around campus (hoping to run into people who will gush over him and pay him loads of attention), annnnd he loves going for rides in the car, in hopes of finding water fountains (he loooves the sound of water fountains)!

Dre is still the best baby in the world;) He is 3 months now and is cooing and has started giggling…which is the CUTEST thing in the world!…ugh yes, I’m such a ‘new parent’! He is a great little sleeper and we are in the process of getting him to fall asleep on his own…but lets not get started on that! He still loves being held…and will sit content all afternoon if he can sit on someones lap and be part of the adult conversation.

The phrase,  “New York, the concrete jungle” must have been made by someone navigating around with a stroller. Lets just say the city isn’t the most stroller friendly…therefore we have been fairly content to spend the summer rippin around (in our TOMS) in the ‘burbs.

My dear sister convinced me…and I love my TOMS!

LOVE baby smiles!
