Today Beth, Briar and I went into downtown York to scope out some locations for future shoots. We also stopped at our favorite place to eat in the market, JR’s! Beth is now into week 37 and Hollis’s entry into this world is almost at hand. We are getting so excited and a little nervous for Briar. We just hope the transition from only child to big brother goes as smoothly as possible.
I have been extremely busy lately and haven’t been keeping my blog up-to-date. Christmas has come and gone and Briar has been growing by leaps and bounds!
Fast forward to March; when Briar turned 2! The morning of his party, like every Saturday morning, we watched Dinosaur Train – Briar’s favorite! By lunchtime family and friends had gathered for Briar’s Dinosaur Train themed party. Presents were opened, but the last surprise was on our guests, we announced Beth is pregnant with child #2. Cheer and tears followed. I would like to thank our friends John and Danielle Finley for taking photos of Briar’s birthday so we could enjoy the day. The next day, his actual birthday, was all ours – just Briar, Beth and I. We spent the day playing with new toys and reading new books. One never gets tired of hearing a child’s laugh!
Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day! York was having their annual parade and we stopped in at JR’s for lunch. It was a beautiful day to be outside and hear the sweet sound of bagpipes playing; I just couldn’t get enough! After the parade we went home to lay Briar down for a nap. After dinner we went to the park to take our annual St. Patrick’s Day family photo. Briar was only 7 days old when we took our first family photo 3 years ago.
Beth’s baby bump – 15 weeks
Back in June I posted about my brother Tim and sister-in-law Jess finding out they were having a girl. Well the time has come to introduce the newest member of the Dunbar clan, Hope Lynelle Dunbar. Hope she was born at 5:32pm on November 23rd and was 11lbs 8oz. Congrats again to the Dunbar Family!
Saturday, October 8th, Brown’s Orchard in Emigsville had Fall Fest. It was a day full of fun. There were games, mazes, fire trucks and oh yeah, pumpkins! It was a beautiful day to spend with our friends, The Hogentoglers. Afterwards we went to John Rudy Park to let the kids play. And they loved it. It is always great to see Briar and Kara together and it is great to spend time with friends.
