The main reason for going to Chicago was to see a Cubs game - it was great!
In June Auntie Sherry came out to visit! We took a very fun trip to Nashville for a night and stayed in the Opryland Hotel.
In June we also went to Northern California to see Mark's family. Here is Hope with some 1st and 2nd cousins and her Great Grandma Franklin.
At the end of July Mark got to go see our new nephew Andrew, and our "old" nephew Luke. Not to mention Phil and Jill and a whole lot of other people too.
Hope turned one on August 3rd. We already put up pictures of that so I thought I'd share this one - she's so sweet!
In the beginning of September we took a trip to Orange Beach, Alabama. It was so fun to take a trip just the 3 of us. The beach there is perfect. We did a lot of relaxing. Hope did not like the sand or water so we didn't have to chase her around too much :)
We love it when she makes this face!
My favorite picture from the beach :)
And finally, Hope's first little pig tail. Thanks for looking at our pictures and to all of you who helped to make this a great summer!
