Weekends of Fun (Part 2)

Happy Birthday, Sam!!!

And yet another really fun weekend! We feel so spoiled this summer!
Beth Ellen, Keith & our fun & cool nephew, Sam came to spend the weekend with us. We had a packed and fun filled time. We celebrated his birthday (really to come in August) at Aunt Rae & Uncle Bob's with dinner, cake & swimming. He is turning two in August and we just can not believe it!! Just check out how cute he is!

Are those two Holimon kids or what?

We met friends Meg, Brian & lil' Frankie at the Naples Zoo for the grand opening of the leopard exhibit. It was REALLY hot... this summer heat is tooooooo much!

Check out that awesome lion cake that Be made for Samuelito!
We let Zane have at a whole peach and he was in HEAVEN!

Then, we got to visit and have some lunch with Annie & Allan!

Then that was it for the Zane-Man. He was so worn out! He had to cuddle up with his favorite blanket (recognize that one, Nana?) and zonk out!
Well, we are off for 10 days of fun and visiting with family in North Carolina. We will be spending half the time with my brother, Ben, and his girlfriend, Rachael in Boone. Then we are going to Sapphire and hanging out with Zane's Gramps & Grandma and before returning to FL we will stop by and spend a night with our good friends Brian & Aya in Charlotte! We get to see how fun it will be traveling and hauling a 9 month old and all his goods! Good luck to us!
We will check back in on our return or.... maybe I can figure out how to do this when we are traveling!
And for those of you who are not completely bored yet...
Here is just a simple video of our mobile kiddo. He is crawling very fast and pulling himself up on EVERYTHING!! You will see in the video two new cool wood toys (the play cube and the push cart) that I (and with the awesome help of Beth Ellen - thanks Be!) got off of craigslist for $20 each! For those of you out there who know these two toys you will know what a great steal that is! He loves them and just yesterday Paul watched him actually CLIMB to the top of the wooden push cart!! You will notice in the video the wonderful calm play music that Paul provides for Zane. He is such a lucky kid!!


  1. That child will be walking in minutes I tell you ....minutes!!
    Great score on the toys...and man aren't you glad you got the double bike trailer...so cute those two little cousins.

  2. the only thing not holimon in that picture of those two is sam's tanness.
    have a wonderful vacation! (and you're always welcome to stop in lakeland if you need to.. if i'm here that is)
