My 1 Month Post

Looks as thought today makes it a full month since my last post- I actually think I like the idea of just posting once a month for now, although they will probably be pretty long if I want to mention every detail of our month! Eh, that's alright.

This past month has been loaded with summer fun! It seems like it all picked up right after July 4th....

Lots of Disneyland!

And Jack finally got picked for the Jedi Training Show! He was so excited, but a little afraid too- I love this nervous face of his :)

Swimming in Our Red-Neck Pool :)

A Trip to our Favorite Local Zoo with Great New Friends!

One on One Dates With Daddy!

Averie Got Breakfast (and had to wear a dress)

Jack had a Lunch Date & BB Gun Time

Aislinn Insisted on a Dinner Date (like Mommy gets- she even did nail polish for him & dressed up in her Sunday School Finest- she kills me!)

Late Night VBS (we did a total of THREE this year- jeesh!) And yes, it was the awesome sort of VBS staff that hyped our kids all up on sugar before they went home! So fun!

That's only about HALF of our Summer adventures over the past month- I'll post more on the next post :) like ONE week countdown until Back to School! Crazy!

"You're a Grand 'Ol Flag..."

Is what I enjoy singing loudly to embarass the hubbs every 4th of July at the local community parade! hehe I just love being annoying sometimes....

We had a "grand 'ol" time on the 4th of July! Ya know, it really is one of my most favoritest holidays. I think mainly for my obsession with Navy, Red, & White ;)
We always head down to our little town parade and watch the local cheerleaders, pageant girlies, horses, fire trucks, etc. march down through Old Town. It is normally very hot and steamy but this year was FABULOUS weather! We had a nice little breeze and sunshine!

Then we headed over to a friends camping site near town for a BBQ and some sprinkler fun. Such a good time. I never realized how much I appreciate good, real friendships until just recently. It is such a blessing to be around like-minded people who love Jesus & each other. So thankful.

After that we took the late night plunge to go see fireworks- they didn't start until 9pm and the sprinklers came on in the middle of the show so we watched the finale from the car!

All in all, it was another wonderful Independence Day! So thankful for this country!
Hope you all had a great one too!

Love, Me

Psss...Don't Look At the Date!

Alright, it's almost July. Who knew?! Time flies with summer break I tell ya! We have been having OOOdles of fun and it wouldn't be honest for me not to mention- I'M TIRED. Thanks to goodness for swimming pools, my new found love {crochet}, and VBS or I would be pulling my hair out with trying to keep my 3 crazies entertained all day! Hope to be checking in again soon {as if anyone really cares but me! haha!} Love, ME (Colleen)
