We miss you daddy!

Well we have had a pretty eventful last couple weeks and I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Most of you know that there was a B-52 plane crash abut 2 weeks and they were some men that work closely with Warren.  They were stationed in Guam at Anderson Air Force Base and their plane crashed into the ocean without any survivors.  It was the same plane that Warren flies and he also left for Guam last week, exactly 7 days after the crash.  He will be there for several months and we miss him so much.  I'm adjusting to life as a "single" working mom, which definitely has its high's and low's.  We have some wonderful friends here who have been amazing in helping us out so much and I can't thank everyone enough for their support.  Before Warren left we were taking a whole bunch of pictures and I hope you enjoy them.  We also have had several friends and their families come through Louisiana to visit us and here are some pictures.

We went to the farmers market one weekend and made it a point to find a watermelon bigger then Baxter!!

At church last week Warren dressed himself and Baxter the same.  Aren't they so cute?!

Here's Baxter first try at solid foods!! We think he really liked the rice cereal although he wore more than he ate.  We wanted to feed him from the spoon before Warren left so that he could be there and I think Warren and I enjoyed it more than Baxter!

Our friends the Yengos came to visit last week on their way from Oklahoma to South Carolina.  We're so glad they stopped through (from left to right: Alyssa, Amelia, Baxter, Warren, Caitlyn, Lily, and Chris)

Later on the same day our friends the Stiles stopped through on their way from Texas to Florida.  (from left to right: Warre, Baxter (head only!) Brian, Alli, Sherri, and Lyla)  I had to work this day so unfortunately I didn't get to see everybody but I know Warren and Baxter had a great time.

This is our friend Dale helping Baxter enjoy his johnny jumper.  Dale and his wife Holly have been a huge help in taking care of Baxter whenever I need help and I really appreciate it.

This is Jeff and Warren on Jeff's way from California to Florida.  We have loved getting to see all of our friends this summer as they criss-cross their way across the country and we would love to have anyone else that wants to stop in!!!

Go Daddy!!!

I just had to post this picture that was in our local newspaper's sports section. That's Warren in the blue shorts looking at his watch at the starting line of the Firecracker 5K. I'm not sure about the old guy running next to him-yikes. Warren and I had a great time running on July 4th with the other 4000 participants even if it was super hot! I was so excited that of all the people they took pictures of they put Warren in the paper! We both achieved our goal of running fast enough to win a glass mug (even though my time (Abbey) was not very good). Oh well there's always next year! There were these people tearing up the course with their baby joggers, maybe Baxter can do the race with us next year- he's still a little too young right now. It was a great race and a lot of fun. If I ever take the time to download some pictures off the camera I will post some more from July 4th weekend.
