The Peterson Stewart vacation started on Friday Aug 26th as we packed up the truck and the mini van and headed down to Rockport maine for the weekend.  What an awesome time we had down there.  We arrived just in time to grab a light lunch of fish and chips of course and then head over to a mini golf place.  It was the funnest mini golf course we have been to.  I am sure with all the video footage Micah took there will be a video to come.  

After our 18 holes we headed back to our motel where we were staying to go for a dip in the pool before mama BBQ'd some red franks for supper

The next day we packed up the family for a fun morning adventure; since the wedding wasn't until later that afternoon.  We took the kids down and walked the break water. 

The guys decided that they would take care of lunch for us so this is what we ended up with.  Eben usually doesn't eat anything not even chicken nuggets (which for a Dietitian isn't a bad thing) but him and Jaelyn sure LOVED popcorn chicken.  I think it was because he loves dips and Micah happened to get 5 different ones. 

Oh and did I mention the wedding was on our anniversary.  We were celebrating 6 years.  So here we are with our wedding picture.

The wedding was in a beautiful outdoor ampitherater and the weather was just prefect for the event.  Here we are in front of the stairs that the bride made her way down.

And here is the little family

OH and this is where the planking started.  We saw some people doing it down by the harbor after the wedding so Micah decided he would start his own planking career.

Bye Bye Byng Crt

This summer has been our busiest summer so far.  It seems like we have been non stop for the past 3 months.  So when August rolled around we were looking forward to weddings and family time.  Little did we know that those times of "family time" would be spend packing, moving, fixing up our first home and moving to a new city. 

The middle of the month brought new change for us as Micah excepted a new job in Saint John with a new company.  With only 3 weeks to get our things in order we packed up and moved to Saint John. We were so blessed to be moving when all our family was home visiting and that they were willing to come and help us fix the place up to be ready for the market. 

Here is Shiloh who was on detail duty!  She did such a wonderful job making sure all floors and windows were cleaned. 

The rest of the gang gave the living room and the kitchen a fresh coat of paint.

The girls staying up really late finishing up the kitchen

So after all the hard work here is Micah and I (in our awesome matching work shirts) with the for sale sign.

And welcome to the new living room (even the fire place got a face lift; thanks to Elisabeth)

 And the white kitchen!

Its only been on the market 1 week so we are still praying that a family comes and LOVES it so much that they make us an offer so we can begin to look for a new place here in Saint John.

So here are so up dates on one of the garden beds. Its where the tomatoes and peppers are growing. We have one tomato plant that is turning red. The tomatoes are very tasty!!

The other plants are growing lots of tomatoes but they haven't turned red yet. We are having a very wet summer so hopefully when the sun comes out they will turn color for us.

The peppers are growing good. I can't wait to eat them.

Summer time fun

Summer has been filled with so much fun. I don't know if you readers saw this Summer time fun list that we made but I am so glad that we did. It has been a lot of fun crossing off the different things we have been doing all summer long.

Here are just a few things we have done.

A family trip to the zoo

This was Jaelyn's first trip to the zoo. This huge moose sits beside the doors as you are leaving. Its always filled with people taking pictures on the way out so this is sort of Jaelyn's first "moose" picture. Daddy had to sit in front of her cause she is just too crazy to stay on there herself.
July 18th in this house is International M&M's on toast day. Its an exciting morning around here. We all got up and were at the table for 7 am. What a great way to start the day; white bread, chocolate, topped with more chocolate!!!

We have two teenagers staying with us. It has been so much fun having them around the house. On Saturday we all went to work replacing the old fence with a new one we made!!! I am so happy with it. After a hot morning of working we were off to Centennial beach for the afternoon.

And to top the day off we headed out for ice cream that night. These two decided to get a floater which is a slushie with soft serve ice cream in it.

Jaelyn LOVES ice cream!!!

I am also hoping to start a new nutritious fashion...what do you think :)
