On Wednesday we got a call from Benjamin's Daycare that he hurt his leg and was having trouble standing/walking on it. We ended up taking him to urgent care. It is hard seeing your little boy hurt.
Here we are in the room waiting for the Doctor.
The doctor then sent us to imaging to get an x-ray. More waiting.

Daddy giving little man some hugs while we were waiting for the x-ray results.
He does not have any broken bones, thankfully. It is still bothering him to walk, but at least he is walking some these last two days. We know God is our healer and we will continue to see improvements. In the meantime I am taking advantage of my little man enjoying cuddletime. He normally has way too much to explore to stop and cuddle.

Spoonfuls of Fun

Benjamin has been working on using his spoon and fork. He enjoys the challenge and the mess. It is fair to say he is getting lots of extra baths right now.

Welcome Eli

My newest nephew, Eli William, was born July 14th

My sister makes birthing babies look easier than sitting on the couch eating tasty carbs.

I keep trying to come up with reasons why I should go see my sister so I can hold this precious joy.
I love being an aunt(again)!

The Greats

Last month was special for Benjamin and some of his Great-Grandparents that got to meet for the first time over our New York trip. He even got to meet Great-Great family members.
Here are few of the shots from those special moments.
Every family gathering taking place between July and August involves 3-4 dozen ears of sweet corn freshly harvested from the local farms. Benjamin was a pro. He now gets really excited when he sees corn on the cob is for dinner.
Great - Grandma A (my mom's mom) was loving all of the grand and great-grandchildren.
She took us to her usually "Friday Fish Fry."
Great-Grandma A!
Great -Grandma & Grandpa Hall meet Tanner and Benjamin for the first time! Also we are celebrating Grandma is officially in remission. No more cancer!
This another really warm day without air conditioning. So a trip to the store to find a pool to cool us all off was worth every penny. When I say all I mean adults too. We all pulled our chairs up to the pool and dangled our feet in the water as we visited fore several hours that afternoon.
Great-Grandma Hall taught Benjamin how to eat an ice cream cone. It was sweet.
