WOW, life in the last 2 months

It is hard to believe i have not blogged for almost 2 months! Life has just gotten busy with things and i always plan on blogging but end up having something else to get to! Sorry for that, i have been keeping up with everyone's blogs and reading about all your fun summer time activities!

So what has been going on in the world of Life with the Adams..

1. It has been so hot in Iowa this summer we have been trying to do anything to stay cool, so we decided to buy a little pool, so we can relax in the backyard after work or on the weekends! It has been nice to have, i have been enjoying it after work and on the weekends that i am home, we bought a life jacket for Macy and a raft, but to say she doesn't like the pool is an under statement! She will let you hold her in the water and she loves, it but the second you put her in the water to "swim" she hates.. poor Macy!

Joe and my dad enjoying the pool.

On June 15th, Joe recieved a call that is grandfather who was 89 years old and lived in New Holland pennsylvania had passed away, Joe and his dad drove the 16 hour trip out that Saturday, my mother in law, sister in law and myself flew out on Tuesday, it was nice to see some of Joe's family that live on the East Coast that i have not met, in the almost 10 years we have been together. We went to Pennsylvania 2 summers ago to visit Charles, Joe was very happy we were able to do that, we had been talking about going again late this summer to visit and to also do some sight seeing on our drive out. It is sad to lose someone no matter how young or old they are. This was Joe's only living grandparent.

Joe, Charles and I in 2010.

On July 1st, my brother had called and said my sister in law was having some contractions and thinking the baby may be here sooner than later, they were planning to be induced on the 7th if she was not here by then, so my new niece arrived at 5:37 a.m. on July 2nd, she weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 18.5 inches long and she is just a doll! Her name is Emma Paige and Lily just loves her! It is so sweet! SO be prepared for below, picture overload of my 2 sweet nieces!

This past weekend, my sister, Joe and I were able to head over to see the 4 of them and meet Emma, i have to tell you she is the cutest little thing! Emma sneezed a couple times and Lily says "bless you baby Emma" how cute is that!!

It was also so sweet how Joe was with Lily, he really does love that sweet little girl! It just melts my heart to know how good he is with little ones!

While we were visiting we went to downtown Naperville, to the shops, we had to hit up the Cookie Dough Creations, let me tell you the oppurtunity to get some cookie dough was great! (it didn't have any eggs in it) i got the Chocolate Chip Cookie dough and it was yummy! Joe decided to get the ice cream along with a scoop of cookie dough on top! He got peanut butter cookie dough, here is a picture of him enjoying his treat! :)

We also hit up Sugar Monkey Cupcakes they have the best flavors of cupcakes, who doesn't love a Cotton Candy cupcake! WOW, to say i had a small taste and my blood sugars were not happy with me is an understatement! Lily got the cutest little cupcake ring haha! She loved it! We got Cotton Candy, Lemon Raspberry with Cream Cheese frosting, Chocolate Chip, Smores, Lemon Raspberry and Cookies and Cream. I ate the Cotton Candy one and it was amazing!
Hopefully Lily is still enjoying her "cakes" ring!
I just love being an aunt! It so much fun to see these sweet girls! Macy also had her first "long" road trip! She did a good job, thankful for my sister sitting in the back seat with her! She is getting ready for the road trip! How cute is she! She also had fun playing with Lily and Petey while in Chicago! Lily just loves Macy, she kept saying where is Mace? Oh she is so cute! haha! What 2 year olds say!

Well i have lots more to write and share, but i think i have done too much already! Hopefully you stayed with me! I am off to see Blake Shelton tonight in concert! So stay tuned for updates on that!
Have a great weekend! Happy Friday!

Until next time,

You have been busy! We have considered getting a pool like yours because it's so hot in IN too, do you like it? Do you just jump the side to get in? Right now we have a little inflatable one and Louie loved it, he will float for hours! :) Oh and those cupcakes look DELICIOUS! (might need an extra blous for that!)
