Summer Catch Up (lots of pictures ahead!)

There have been several fun events this summer that I haven't blogged about. So I thought I'd post some of my favorites and re-cap some of the fun things we've been doing.

When we visited the Science museum with my in-laws, it ended up being a great deal to go ahead and purchase a membership. So one day the boys and I went with our good friends out to the museum. We took about 10 pictures and at least they are all looking at the camera in this one!Here we are on our train ride!Do you see the butterfly on my shoulder? It landed there and stayed for a little while. It was really cool.I thought this sleeping picture of Tyler was so cute. Exhausted. Ken's sister, Kristy, came with her boys and our neice to visit at the begining of July. We had a great time with them, but because I'm really lame I didn't get many pictures. Every day we took a "Picture of the Day" for Alexandra to send home to her parents. This was my favorite. Of course, we had to head back to the Science museum with them. Cousins on the train.Tyler got to ride with Dad instead.

If babies can wear trendy little head bands with huge flowers on them, I thought I might be able to get away with it too!

We loved having our family come to visit. It was a really great time and next time I'm taking more pictures for sure!

One Saturday we decided to take a walk with the boys to a bridge here in Raleigh. You can cross right over the freeway.

For some reason, we thought Abe might like looking at the cars going underneath us. *like* is probably an understatement. Tyler was equally fascinated.

And last, but most definately NOT least .... Abraham is potty trained!! Hooray!!!

It was actually pretty darn painless and took less than a week until he was completely out of diapers, even for naps and night time. I'm so happy to have one less set of diapers to buy and change and we are so proud of our big boy!!

Looks like there has been lots of fun at the Carlile house this summer. Of course the potty training is always awesome, but I have to say that the "Clue" picture is my favorite! Now that is some classic Carlile.
