Beautiful PA

Matt's second week as a resident was one of the craziest weeks we've had yet. He left at 4:30 a.m. and didn't get home until 10:30 p.m. if he came home at all (two of the nights he was on call). Carter didn't get to see his daddy at all that week. When Saturday rolled around we were sure Matt would be too exhausted to do anything with us. But he was a real trooper and was anxious to spend time with his family so we went hiking about an hour north of Pittsburgh in the gorgeous PA countryside.

As a baby shower gift my parents give each of the kids a baby hiking backpack and Carter loved his. He loves the outdoors and we're hoping for a die hard camper and hiker and if he has any Herzog in him in the inside (because he doesn't have a lot of it showing on the outside) then he for sure will be an outdoorsman.

I love seeing Carter and Matt hanging out together. It is cool to see their bond developing so strong so soon.

Good looking family!!! In Iowa our basement flooded each year at least once. We didn't have carpet and it wasn't finished but it was still a pain in the bum!!! You are a trooper!!

Matt looks beat. In that pic of him and Carter it looks like he is ready to slump down for a nap.

Give us a call sometime. Did you cancel the Iowa number?

How fun!! Looks like a beautiful area. Not seeing much of that in my neck of the woods... :) I love the pictures though. They are gorgeous! and you are just the cutest family. By the way, did you cut your hair? It looks way cute in that picture? Miss you!

Darn about that basement! When I was growing up our basement flooded a couple of times and I remember my parents set up huge Industrial size fans and kept them running for like 2 weeks in order to completely dry everything. It worked though, and they never had any mold problems. Good Luck!

Okay you are going to totally laugh! Candace just called me and I said, I'm emotional. She's all, Why? I said, because I finished the third book and I'm depressed because I NEED MORE EDWARD, BELLA AND JACOB! I am totally obssessed and I feel like they are a part of me! haha I honestly wanted to create a chat about the book with everybody because I am so obssessed. I am so sad I have to wait a year before the next one comes out and I am sad because I FEEL like there is no happy ending that I WANT for the book. Okay, I'm going to stop now, I can go on and on! I was such a bad mom too, I read the first two books in less than 24 hours! Is that bad or what? I read the third one yesterday! DANG IT! I am depressed...hahahah! Gotta love it! What was your favorite part? BTW...I am in love with Edward and Jacob. The first and third book were my favorite! Okay, I'll seriously stop now!
