Here we go again!

I go through phases of blogging and not blogging. So here we go again. Just a heads up, I'm going to to do a little catching up since the last blogs

At the end of April Baby C and I went to California to visit family. I was a little nervous flying by myself and with a layover. Once again little man amazed me. He did great! We'll see if he continues to be a awesome airplane traveler when we fly again in October.

Flying to California
This is my Aunt Sandy. Sandy and her husband, Nan, took us to Newport beach for the weekend.
Baby C got to meet my dad's parents, Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Stout.
He also got to meet my cousin, Kristy, and her fiance', Phillip. (He was about to go to sleep, that's why he's swaddled. I don't usually keep him in a straight jacker.)
We got to see my cousin, Mandi, while we were out in California.
Thanks Sandy and Nan for a great trip to California.
We were both very excited to see Daddy when we got home.
We had kind of a traumatic evening one night in May. Poor baby knocked one of his teeth out in his crib some how. :( His gums are all healed up now, just minus a tooth.

We also got an unexpected visit from my brother, Trevor, and his wife, Wyntre, when they had to cut their backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail short.

At the end of May we headed up to Tennessee for the Georgia Cumberland Conference campmeeting. The highlight of the trip was staying with Matt's sister, Mindy, and her family. 

Fun times with Cousin Brynlie!
First time in the swing
Aunt Mindy is such a good auntie and mommy juggling two babies during storytime. 
We also made it to Zoo Atlanta for the first time. Caffrey didn't really know what was going on, but it was good outing for me to do with another mommy friend.

So I've been trying to fit in my training in the midst of mommyhood. I mentioned in past posts that I wanted to do Ironman Augusta 70.3, but.... It is now filled up, and I can't do it. :( My plan now is to do Rev3 Anderson. It is also a 70.3. It's two weeks later and a smaller race. I'm also excited, because Matt and Caffrey can cross the finish line with me.

My mom, Caffrey, and I just got back from a vacation to Branson, MO. We had a lot of fun. This baby continues to amaze me. He did so well with the 13 hours on the road there and back. He did great, but I am really trying to limit his time in the carseat and enjoy as much time as we can at home for the next few days.

This little boy loves to swim

Overall the last three months have been a lot of fun. We have many more memories to make in the next couple of summer months. I'll try to be better about staying up to date, especially as Rev3 Anderson gets closer.
