Updates Galore!!!

Well, there is so much to catch up on! Two weeks ago, I took the kids camping at Mammoth Cave by myself. Well we met some of my family down there, but Brett couldn't come. My Aunt and her 3 kids camped next to us. We were tent camping without electricity on what happened to be the hottest week of the year so far. Let's just say it was sweaty. There is a lot to do near Mammoth Cave, and we went to Dinosaur World first. Duncan had a blast!

This is my Aunt Jen holding Audrey. She just loved holding a baby again (her youngest is four).

After I took this picture I realized Duncan is talking to the mammoth. I'm not sure what exactly he was saying, but they were buddies.

Here are all of the kiddos. Duncan had tons of fun playing with his cousins.

We also went caving. One day Duncan and I went on a short self-guided tour. The next day, we went on the two hour historical tour with everyone. Grandma Carol watched Audrey for me while we explored the cave. It was a long walk to the cave entrance, and Duncan decided he needed to take a break.

Once we neared the cave entrance, we could feel the cool air. It was so nice since it was in the mid-90s that day. It was ~54 degrees inside the cave.

Duncan though the cave was pretty cool.

On our way back to the campsite a deer was standing right next to the road. He came right up to the car. I guess people must feed them often.

Today we went to the Kenton County Fair. Duncan had a blast. He rode tons of rides. The Dragon Wagon was his favorite!

Audrey had fun pulling up on the gates and watching. She also liked pulling out handfuls of grass.

The fun slide was Duncan's favorite last year. This year it must have been really waxed because it was fast!!!!

While we were standing in line waiting for Duncan to ride one of the kiddy rides I heard Brett yell "Duncan!" I looked down and Duncan was standing there peeing! I panicked and just tried to stop it. That resulted in a handful of pee on my part. Oy. So I took him to the bathroom real quick and we stayed on the other side of the park for a while because I was so embarrassed. I don't care who you are, that's funny.

Miss Audrey is now 10 months old and is on the move! Here's a little video. Brett's in the background telling his mom about the pee incident at the fair. :P

As for me, I have some wonderful news. I gave my 6-7 week informal notice at work! That's right, August 31st is my last day of work...FOREVER!!! I'm going to be a stay-at-home mom! I am just so excited. I will be helping Brett out with our store a little bit, but not enough to actually say I work. I can't believe I'm actually going to get to do this! Ever since I informed my boss, I've felt like I am floating on a cloud. :)
