My Kids' Busy Summer

It's hard to believe they only have a few more weeks until school starts kids have had a very fun & full summer and it isn't even over yet !! It seems that almost daily and definitely every weekend there is something going on - every weekend of August is booked already, including one full week away!

I've gone through my phone and thought I'd share some more pictures of what's been going on other than the few posts for the summer I've done! If you follow me on IG you may have seen some already!
Visited the Blue Bell Creamery... I had my favorite - mint chocolate chip... Went to see the Astros play... Been doing a lot of swimming... Bible School with friends (you can tell I got to play chauffeur)... Visits to the firestation... Met some of the Texans cheerleaders... and sadly just missed seeing JJ Watt, too - that'll teach us to leave early! 
Saw a few movies... Oh - and be prepared...I've upgraded my camera (now the proud owner of…

It really is The Greatest Show on Earth

I love the circus - I've always loved the circus!! We try to go every year and this year was no exception! My favorite part I think is the before show - where you get to get a close look at all the animals, interact with the performers, and even get into the show...oh and the elephants...and the high flyers...oh and the motorcycle daredevils...and the ringmaster - umm yeah, I just love it all!!! I don't think Aaron remembers going last year, but I think he will remember this year hopefully! My parents joined us and two other families - we had 6 little ones all together and 1 teenagers (who we also will also consider as one of our little ones! LOL) - so we had quite the crew with us! Here are a few pics of what we saw... And of course had some delicious circus munchies...Emma actually doesn't like cotton candy, but Aaron didn't mind eating her share! Our little clowns all had a blast!! Already looking forward to next year!  And we did our own bit of clowning around on…

4th of July with Yogi & Friends

4th of July was such a blast this year - we hit the road for a short road trip to a super fun place - JellyStone Park - to hang with Yogi & friends & family!! We all had so much fun!! The kids are still asking daily if we're going back. We will...soon I'm sure.
These kids all had a blast together! Here is the whole crew including the two smallest members of the bunch!
We enjoyed some super yummy food, too courtesy of our gourmet grillin' husbands...
Which, of course, was followed by some yummy s'mores - dude you can't camp w/out making s'mores!
And then worked it all off with a few games of basketball!
And ended our nights out under the stars watching movies...
This place is such a fun place to visit - fishing, putt putt, swimming, water slides, outdoor movies, arts & crafts (the kids chose to make the shirts you saw them wearing this visit), entertainment...we can't wait till our next visit!!
