Life Through My Phone

Summer always seems to end up ridiculously busy with not a moment to spare.  We've been really enjoying this summertime and I wanted to share a few snippets of the fun we've been having!

Our backyard is more than just a dirt pit this year, so while it still needs a lot of work, it's making great progress and has been a lot of fun for the kids!  

                                    These two!  I just love the relationship my little Irish twins have!

We've worked hard this summer on the boys staying in their beds and made good progress, but it doesn't keep us from sometimes finding this one in bizarre places.

We started another year of school. Yes, I know that is weird, but for our lifestyle I really think year round school will work better for us with 2 months on and 1 month off.  With expecting a baby here soon, we even pushed the start forward even more so I can have the flexibility of more time off if I need it.

                                                         Sabrina crashed a date night!

                                                       She was pretty excited about that

                                                           We took the kids free bowling!

                                                  It's boring to be patient and wait your turn!

                                                              Someone is very creative.....

                                           Still have a little bit of dirt left in the yard (for now)

We had a skunk in the backyard who was out even during the day.  So we had to hire someone to trap the thing for us.  I felt bad, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

 Malachi passed level 1 swim lessons.  I was so proud of him.  New experiences are very hard for him but he was brave and loved it and is even ready for more!

                   We had a very fun 4th of July weekend and my darlings were as adorable as ever!

It has been 4 years since we enjoyed 4th of July up at Peter's grandparents house.  We've always enjoyed that tradition and it was fun to finally get to share it with our kids.

It has been 6 months since we had been up to Seattle to see Uncle Andy so we figured it was high time to make a trip up there.  It was a very fun and nice weekend spent with family!

Hopefully there will be more blog posts to come here soon!  July is always our funnest and craziest month of the year!
