Summer Happenings

Well hello friends! It’s been a while, and I had a few minutes – for the first time in what seems like ages – so I figured I’d give you a quick update on what we’ve been up to this summer!

If my lack of presence on the blog doesn’t give it away, we’ve been rather busy this summer! Here’s a sneak peak at some of the highlights!

At the beginning of June, we took a trip back to Minnesota, and what a wonderful trip it was! In a matter of ten days I got to watch my brother get married… jason_wedding

We hung out with the Sendelbach family at Jellystone…

And I got to stand by one of my college roommates as she married the man of her dreams.

After we got back, we had just a few short weeks to get the house put together enough for visitors. That’s right, Steve’s brothers Ryan and Nathan decided to drive out to visit us and spend fourth of July weekend with us!

And what better way to spend the fourth of July then by watching fireworks at our Nation’s Capitol!

We also took the boys to Steven F. Udvay-Hazy Center, a hangar associated with the Air and Space Museum. The hangar included tons of planes and space items. We got to see an SR-71 Blackbird, the Enola Gay, and an actual space shuttle!

Ryan and Nathan weren’t our only visitors this summer; Steve’s other brother, Phil, and his wife Emily came to visit just a few weeks ago.

And somehow in the midst of all the trips, visitors, and adventures, we managed to get some home improvement projects done! Like our guest bedroom… spare_room

As summer winds down, we’ve been hitting the home renovations hard. We’re currently in the process of finishing our stairs, and we’re hoping to have most of our current projects finished by October. Stay tuned for updates!

Until our next adventure,

Amanda
