Labor Day – Just a little late

Due to my unexpected departure on Tuesday evening, I was unable to post about Labor Day weekend with the parents.  So better late than never, here are some pictures.

First of all we cannot keep the baby bear on his back to sleep anymore and we find him in a variety of hillarious positions when we go to wake him up in the morning.  I think it’s time to remove the blanket until he is a bit older.

Back, not at all where we left him with feeties hanging out of the crib.PA300410

We are also very close to being a household with a crawler.  Oh Indie so desperately wants to be going places.  Today he pushed himself up onto all fours and rocked.  PA300415

While mom was here we made some refridgerator pickles.  OMG they are soooo delicious!  Eric’s pickles  are not as spicey as I had hoped so I’ll have to keep working on that recipe.  Will post my recipes later this week as I also plan to make some pickled banana peppers and will post at the same time.PA260405

Indie was able to spend some quality time with his Nana and Pops over the weekend.  They all had a great time together.PA260400

Then we headed to Milwaukee for a Hoyt history tour.  The Hoyt family spend some time in the Milwaukee area and we visited some of the hot spots such as St. Jame’s Episcopal Church, Third Street, and the Wawatosa (sp?) graveyard.

Mom and Dad by the Lake.  Don’t they look so natural here?  I think it’s a sign they should move up to the great state of Wisconsin.PA230396

We had some other great times over the weekend.  We went to a cookout at a friends house and had a great time.  We checked out the farmer’s market and Trader Joe’s (probably the best grocery store ever, even Eric likes it). And we spent many evenings drinking a little too much wine.  We can’t wait to see mom again in October and then to spend Thanksgiving together in November.
