Safe at Home - Or Max's First Baseball Game


So early this spring, Grandpa Joe decided that it would be his job to take Max to his first Yankees game. With the Yankees coming to town to play the Royals on August 15, we had the perfect opportunity.

Grandpa got Max a whole Yankees outfit, complete with ball cap.



Max did an amazing job, lasting all 9 innings and even running the bases afterward.









Home Run!

After running the bases, we determined that Max was Safe at Home (inside joke with Joe)!

Wisconsin - Year Two

At the end of July, we made our annual trek up to Northern Wisconsin for a couple weeks of time by the lake. Last year, Max did a lot of laying around, napping, and rolling. This time was VERY different. This toddler is on the move - around the cottage, toward the lake, driving the boats. I don't believe that vacation is the word when one has a toddler. Ha. But we did have fun and lots of extra hands with Grandma and Grandpa B and with Phil and Kelly.

Campfire with s'mores time: Mommy's favorite!


Animal Time: A Visit to Peck's Wildlife




Soccer Time: Inspired by the World Cup, Max brought his ball and net for some practice. Watch carefully for Max's idea of a goal: putting the net over the ball. Genius!

Boat Time: This kid always wants to drive!

Gator Time:
Max could've spent the entire time just sitting in the gator. That's how much the kid loves it.

Water Time: Note the full body suit courtesy of Grandma. The lake had some duck itch going around, so we tried to protect Max as much as possible. We all walked away with only a few spots.

All in all, it was a great time. Max kept us on our toes but watching him have such fun was worth it!
