Holiday Weekend

Wade and I both have a list of projects we’d like to accomplish this weekend, but we also wanted to do a few fun things with the boys. I spent the morning cleaning windows and then we headed down to see the Harley parade. (Our city has been invaded with motorcycles to celebrate the big…

Today is the last “regular” summer day before school starts on Tuesday. We celebrated by getting all the boys together and letting them make pizzas.

Happy Surprise To Me

When Wade gave the AC man our deposit they talked dates. We knew the man had a schedule a few weeks out and we were hoping they would be able to come the week I was at the beach with the boys. The man couldn’t promise that and gave us a firm date of the…

E-I-E-I-O

Amber and I planned one last trip to the farm (Green Meadows Farm) before school starts next week. Amber has a new car and could even fit all of us! What I love about this place is there is always something new (granted we only come twice a year). Today there was a new “train”…

Last Day
