Vacation in Kearney

July has been filled with visits, vacations, and work trips. I haven't been up on updating the blog, but I will fill you all in with July installments. First with part of our trip to Kearney, NE.

We are back from our vacation in Kearney, NE. The ride back was a bit of a challenging one. Miles is at the point now where he isn't content just sitting in his carseat. He wants to GO!
Packing to go to Kearney, "Don't forget me Mom!"

We got to Kearney on Monday (July 9) because Aaron had some work meetings to attend. We had dinner with our friends and Aaron's work colleague Mary and her husband Keith. Mary and Keith have 2 little girls. Ella is the same age as Miles and we first met her on our trip to Texas a few months ago. And we got to meet Anna who is 3 and a little ball of energy.

She only sat still for a second

Miles and I were on our own for most of the week. But we found some fun stuff to do. We went to the Centennial Park pool. They have a graduated entrance to the water (like a beach) and it was perfect for Miles to crawl around and splash in the shallow water. What was really fun is we ran into Aaron's cousin's wife Keisha and their little girl Londyn at the pool. An unexpected surprise and we were happy to have some friends there to play with.

Splashing in the pool, that's Londyn in the background. She didn't really want her picture taken but I caught her.

Uncle Luke was all to ready to show Miles that he could walk. They practiced going up and down the hallway at Grandpa Sam and Nana Linda's house.

Miles was a contender for the loudest baby at Matt and Sally's wedding ceremony. Miles did teach Cousin Carter a few new vocal techniques, but he was pretty quiet during the ceremony.
Then at the reception Miles got to meet all the Pearse side relatives. And there are lots of them. Aunts, Uncles and lots of cousins to play with.
Kennedy just loved Miles. Look out for that bear hug!

Aunt Rita, a seasoned Grandma kept Miles happy. Kennedy didn't want to let him out of her sight.

Don't dunk me in the punch bowl Daddy!

We visited with Grandma Mary Lou and Grandma Irma, and had an adventure in downtown Kearney. I'll post those pics in the next installment.
