we were in colorado this past weekend. jacob's first plane trip went fine, except for the 10 minutes of screaming (that seemed like an hour!). he met lots of family and went to yet another wedding. my cousin Andrea married Brady, and this was the first time in over 10 years that all the Vollbracht cousins were together. here are some pictures from the weekend. (jacob and pike's peak, jacob with great-grandma vollbracht, the newlyweds, the vollbracht cousins)

we're in pittsburgh this weekend to attend brianne and kevin's wedding reception luau. friday evening jesse's parents hosted a dessert open house for friends and family to come meet jacob. we got to visit with jesse's family, and cydney was able to see her good friends from high school and their children.
saturday evening was brianne and kevin's wedding reception- a hawaiian luau, complete with roasted pig, lei necklaces, and don ho.
jacob has been a good boy- being passed from on set of arms to another and running on minimal sleep- he impressed us! it was good to see so many friends and family, especially cydney's grandma scruggs and great aunt aj whom we havent seen since our wedding! boy are we exhausted! travelling with a 3 month old isnt that easy- wow- did i just say 3 month old?!?!?!

busy busy busy...

so the busy month of august has begun. we started out the month with weekend visitors... jesse's cousin bo and his wife kassandra. we spent the weekend laughing, talking about our beloved pets, visiting the museum, and of course, loving jacob!

we're getting ready to head to pittsburgh for the weekend for brianne's wedding reception picnic and a visit with jesse's family.

jacob is getting bigger and bigger. he's lifting up his head from the stomach position, and starting to laugh and coo. i think he almost rolled over this morning, so it could be any day now. can't get over how much we love him more and more each day. what a blessing he is!
