The third week of summer we were kind of laid back.  After our awesome week at the beach we were all tired so we just took it easy.
The first couple of days we just stayed home and played and tried to catch up on laundry.

 The boys spent a lot of time playing Cars and planes.  They have a major obsession with Disney Cars and Cars 2.

 The night we went to the movie we had a great family night.  We ate dinner at Neo Burrito and then we saw Madagascar 3.

 After the movie we had frozen yogurt at Ya-Ya's.  OH!! So good!

 One day the boys made brownies.  They love to cook.  Brayden helps me in the kitchen all the time.

 We had a family Friday Fun night at Grandma and Papaw's pool.  So fun spending time with family.

 Pool party complete with noodle fights!!
 The air conditioning was broke all week and the temperatures soared so we spent a lot of time out side in our small pool.

 Hanging out with Papaw and Grandma-- because it is too hot to cook at home.

Beating the heat.

We are having so much fun this summer!!  We have just loved every minute of it so far!!!

Second week of summer vacation

Our second week of summer vacation was AWESOME!!!!  We packed up and headed to Panama City Beach.  It was soooo worth the 9+ hours drive.  We stayed in two great resorts and had the time of our lives.  The beach was so beautiful and the water so much fun.  The boys played, played and played.  They loved the sand and the water and the pools.  They even caught a couple of fish with their net and a hermit crab.  So we threw in a couple of science lessons into our vacation.  

We just had a wonderful week and we made many memories that will last a life time.
I am so thankful and blessed that we got to take this trip and spend quality family time together.

First Week of Summer Vacation!!!

YAY!! School is finally out!!!! Charlie had an extra Awesome kindergarten year!!! So awesome that we all really hate to see it end. But... a little rest and relaxing with a lot of fun mixed in is sure going to be nice. If I could make one wish it would be to have summer break and then have Charlie go back to school with Mrs. McBrayer and Mrs. Reed. I know, I know he has to grow up and move on to first grade. I can't thank his teacher's enough for the WONDERFUL year he had and for making his move into "Big School" so easy and fun.

Our first week was fun and laid back all in one.
A little I-pad and computer fun and shh don't tell the boys---LEARNING too.
We played our last baseball game of the season and then took pictures of "Papaw's Park".
The boys also had tons of fun playing with some neat blocks that Mrs. Reed gave them.
Lots of outside fun with the pool, picnics, bike riding, sidewalk chalk and paint and the most favorite thing of all---- jumping in puddles.
Loving the water squirters!!  They especially love squirting mom and dad!
Charlie spent a long time mixing magic potions.  Who knew you could have so much fun with water, a plastic bottle, bubbles, and soap suds.   What an imagination that boy has--- He amazes me with all the fun things he comes up with.

Well our first week was a success!!!  The boys had a great time and they even learned some things in the process.  I can say for sure that--
WE Love Summer!!!

The boys are playing baseball this year at East Asheville or as Brayden calls it "Papaw's field."  My dad ran the youth league for over 50 years and they named the ballfield after him several years ago.  Papaw has been to every practice and game this year.  He just loves to watch the boys play.  You would never know that he is 81 years old.  He definately has ball in his blood.
