as promised...

here is a pic of joey at his game last week...two guys on him AND he got past them.  he so so loves football and he can't WAIT for his first game!
we had a GREAT weekend, just awesome.  our day at waldameer was fab, we had such fun.  we can't wait to go back and would love to be able to spend more time there.  when we left the park we went to lake erie and OH.MY.GOSH. is it beautiful!  i could have deffo spent more time there!  there is a possibility that might be our next vaca spot next summer.

sunday after church we headed to curwensville dam for the day...they had "bikes at the lake" and fireworks that evening.  we got to see a ton of people we haven't seen for years there.  we had a great time...were joined by some friends...had a little cookout and just hung out.  good times!

yesterday we totally just hung out at home and did a bunch of nothing.  it was such a rainy, dreary day...i did make stuffed peppers (my FAV) and we watched some movies (mama mia, a haunting on sorority row)...we also went on a hike last evening down at lumber city...walked down to the old bridge.
