So summer has been fun, crazy, busy, calm, and everything in between for us! We have had so much fun with the kids. Enjoying every moment possible as a family. I can't believe school is just around the corner and I feel myself getting panicky all over again!
Here are some of the fun things we have been up to this last week!
Of course more gardening. I can't believe how fast our little garden has grown. Here is a before picture taken a week before the after picture~
Just one week later....
We have already enjoyed tons of spinach, peas, spring mix lettuce, crook neck squash, and lots of zucchini! Yummy! If I could only have my garden look as lush as my sisters Hanna's.(check it out) Seriously her garden was so beautiful last year! I can only hope to aspire to have mine look that good!!
We had a bbq last Sunday night at our friends the Lovell's with the Church's. On our way home we saw "snakes" crossing in the road. Tons of them. So we stopped and discovered they were actually Salamanders crossing. Also there were toads all over too. So we let each of the kids have two toads to take home and put in our garden. I woke up the next morning to Caleb frantically saying he couldn't find them. They must have hopped away and he was devastated!
On Wednesday my good friend Ana and I took the kids up to Yankee Meadow( My favorite place) ! We let the kids play in the lake and have a good time. We packed a picnic lunch and just relaxed. It was well worth it!! The kids had a blast. Savanah keeps asking when we get to go to that "big pool" again! HA!
Here are a few pictures from that fun day:
We also had the Church's, Feltner's, and Lovell's over Thursday night for games. It always is a good time when we are all together. There is never a dull moment. We played Pictionary. This is my favorite picture. (the middle picture) Can you guess what it is? I will put the answer in my comment section! HA!

We had a Yard Sale on Saturday, and afterwards we just hung out with Ana and Jake and their kids, and also Joe and Lea. It was a lot of fun. The guys played Red Rover, Wheel barrow racing, and hand stand contests with the kids! Then we all went across the street for a game of kick ball with the kids! It was so nice to spend the whole day with them. The kids had a lot of fun and so did we!
The girls also had a lot of fun playing dress up and making up dances. It was hilarious! Don't they look absolutely fabulous?
After a long week and tons of LATE nights. The kids, Beau, and I have been exhausted!! But it has all been well worth it! Kennedy has fallen asleep so many times in my arms this week. And the other two kids have been found in weird places sleeping!
We are loving summer so much and can't believe there is only a month left! We hope you all are having a fabulous summer and enjoying your family and friends as much as possible!!
