On July 12th, Kaitlin and Bonnie hosted a sweet shower for our little baby Rachel! It was the perfect afternoon surrounded by women I love. The decorations were simple and summery, food was delicious and the gifts were cute and practical, just what I like! We are so grateful that little Rachel is already so loved and prayed for by those around us.

Mom was able to spend the night on Saturday whereas normally she and dad have to hit the road after a day-trip to get back and care for their dog. Jackson thought this was the most incredible thing to happen to him in a long time. She brought some vanilla wafers and whipped cream (which taste even yummier while wearing sunglasses from BB), we went on a long walk to tour the fire station and read lots of books.

To cap off a fun-filled weekend, we got free tickets to the Tides games and went with the Fines and the Whites. We love hanging out with our VA Beach friends (esp when they come to Norfolk!). We chose an empty section of the stand where the kids could run and swing on the railings. JB and Mike caught two balls for the kiddos (YIPPEE!) and we all binged on hotdogs, nachos and soft-serve ice cream in little plastic hats.
