Summer Recap

This summer has been super busy…hence the lack of posts. To fill you all in on our summer activities, without you having to read a novel, I thought I would do a post with mostly pictures.  And really, why else do you come to the blog, but to see pictures of Carter?!

Carter and I started Father’s Day off by making breakfast in bed for Cory and later celebrated with the Burnside clan:

Papaw Bart came out for the 4th of July and we took Carter to the Dallas Zoo for the first time and then followed that up with fireworks at Kaboom Town.  Carter was a trooper, as ALL of that was in one day.  Poor baby finally fell asleep during the fireworks and missed the grand finale!

Carter has had friends over to swim, gone on dates with Sara, and  learned to play the piano.

Carter also learned to express his own opinions and started to eat table food.

Carter’s little cousin Emma finally made her debut on August 12, which also happens to be Mimi’s birthday.

Oh, and most importantly, he’s learned to walk independently with his lion:

All in all, a wonderful summer full of adventures!
