i always love seeing this plant bloom outside our kitchen window each august. i also love how it turns from cream to pink as the fall goes on each year. i couldn't resist snapping a photo when the weather was nice the other day.
on saturday we welcomed "always abba" back to the theatre for their abba tribute concert. this band performed at the theatre last year and it was actually the first show that noah was at outside my belly!
it was great to have them back and the audience loved them!
you can see more photos from the concert here.
it has been a long time since we've seen ryan's brother jeremy and his family. earlier this month, they drove from north carolina to pennsylvania to meet noah for the first time. we really enjoyed seeing them and noah loved meeting his cousins, aunt, and uncle!
it was nice to have everyone together for the first time in a very long time!
the temperature took a turn over the weekend. it was downright chilly on sunday morning. i was going outside to mow the grass before the rain started and had to bundle up the supervisor so that he wouldn't get too cold. he thought it was funny to wear a hat and a sweater over his pajamas.
how is this guy 13 months old today?!
yesterday i shared the photos from noah's 1 year old photo shoot. here are some behind the scenes photos that travis snapped and shared with us. it took some wrangling to get noah looking so cute on that blanket. he wanted to run and run all over the park and he was very excited about picking up the grass and leaves!
noah was in the costume shop with me this week working on costumes for the upcoming fall production of "a midsummer night's dream" when he spotted the broom. he quickly sprung into action and helped sweep up the shop floor which was really dirty and in need of some sweeping!
on saturday we had a heart tribute band at the theatre and to be honest i didn't think i knew too many heart songs before the show except for "barracuda." turns out i recognized a few and the audience loved the show.
here are a few more photos from the show.
i've had the privilege of being on wbre-tv's "pa live" segment several times over the years. last week i went out to the studio on thursday to film a segment about the theatre and it aired that afternoon. i just found out that they are going to re-air it again this afternoon as an encore! that's exciting.
tune in this afternoon at 3pm to watch the whole show, or you can view the segment online from last week here.
(last time i was there noah was in my belly!)
i've mentioned numerous times that my favorite end-of-summer tradition is visiting our local italian festival over labor day weekend. it's especially important to us since it's where we went on our very first date back in 2004.
last year noah was just a teeny-tiny little munchkin at the italian festival. this year he was really into it and loved tasting everything! we made multiple trips to make the most of our favorite festival!
