Kind of a Catch Up

The summer has been flying by, and I have not been the best at documenting it! We've had a lot of fun, and can't believe it's already the middle of August!

We went to several parades and carnivals and enjoyed every minute of it! I'm teaching the kids to realize the goodness of cotton candy!

We've done a LOT of swimming in the back yard and playing on the slip-n-slide. Seriously, the kids could be outside every day, ALL day, if I let them!

The kids think the slip-n-slide is a glorified drinking fountain!

The kids were introduced to "Monster House", a cute animated movie. Every time Jace watches it he keeps his hands by his eyes so he can close them if it gets too scary! He loves any movie with a monster, dragon, or "mean guy".

Brooklyn's been a cute little mommy to her babies! She sure is sweet and thoughtful of them. Sometimes she asks me to hold them for her, but is very specific about how I need to hold them. She also is a PRO at wrapping them up in a blanket!

Jace has discovered that he, too, can wear a tutu. The kids dress up in them and twirl around the house. It's all good until he wants to go outside in it. That's where I draw the line!!

We recently went up to Canada where Trev was a groomsman at his best friends wedding!! We had a great time up there, and, like always, the time flew by!! Trevor had a busy semester at school, so it was nice to take a break and be able to spend some time together!
More blogging to come soon (I hope!) about our trip to Canada, Jace's 4th birthday, and our Canadian visitors!!
