JoAnn and Tom's Going Away Party and a Visit from Cousin Dave

Happy Tuesday!  This post is a bit of a picture dump.  We have been busy...and it is official...  Bill and I have put up with each other for top whole years!  Today is our anniversary.  And, yes, we have a sitter tonight.  Yeah!

Here are pictures from a big going away party we had for friends and pictures of our house guest at the moment: cousin Dave.  Dave is here because his other siblings are at school and his parents are up here working at the State Fair.  Ruth and Paul had a hotel room last night, so it was a sleep over, and Gus couldn't have been happier.  He LOVES Dave!

Grant and Eli brought a lawn mower to the party--and Gus really loved that!

I'm glad it worked out to take these pictures.  All of our women's group and most of the men's group was at the party.  When we started these groups I believe there was one baby...and now there are 9, with two more joining the fun in November!  Be fruitful and multiply??  We're on it!

As you can see from the pictures, the women are much more comfortable getting close to each other.  The men weren't quite so comfortable.  to anyone that want these pictures, copy and paste away!  I tried to load them here large so the resolution is good for you.

The newest addition--Ben and Lauren's girls Lilli and Luci.

We spent most of Monday morning outside.  

Then David showed up.  Bill got off work early and we headed to the splash park that evening.  It was fun...but the water was ice cold!

And the cutest thing last night.  Gus crawled into bed with cousin Dave.  He was so happy.  Look at his face!

And Billy read them some good-night stories.  Sorry about the focus in this picture.

We love you all!

Our weekend

Well, I hear Gus up there waking up, so this had better be quick!

Here are some shots from our weekend:

Sorry--gotta go!  Hope all is well with you.  All four of us are good here.

The past few days...

I just loaded the pictures from the camera onto the computer and I am going to share the best of what we have taken lately.  We had a wonderful weekend.  On Friday we gave Gus a haircut...and he really looks like a big boy now!  The weather was perfect on Saturday and we spent most of the day outside--between a splash park and our yard.  Sunday was a little cold and rainy, so we had a relaxing day and that evening we went out to celebrate a friend's birthday.  All is well and here are the pictures!~

The next pictures are at the splash park.  The little boy in the hat is his friend Micah.  We had a picnic with their family before and then headed over to the water!

Notice the new haircut...he looks older!

We hope your Monday is going well

A Little Love for the newest Bandzuch

Despite the name of this blog, Gus will soon be sharing the adventures in life with a little sister.  Here is the ultrasound picture (from over a month ago).  We only have the one shot because she is a mover!

And here is the little lady.  All is well with the pregnancy...we are 26 weeks already!

I will be posting pictures of our weekend momentarily!

I took these pictures a few days ago.  Gus has been really getting into feeding himself lately...which is good and bad.  I really should scrub the floors again today!  My mom and I made a batch of applesauce this weekend, and Gus is loving it, so he had a little more practice feeding himself with a spoon and here is how it went.

I think some got from the spoon to his mouth...
Have a great weekend,
Nancy and Gus
