8th Week of summer

This week we were busy and on the go all week.  It was a great week. 

We started this week of vacation by celebrating our 10th Anniversary.  It is so hard to believe that it has been 10 years yet it seems like we have always been toghether.  it has been an amazing 10 year.
We are so blessed.

On the night of our actual anniversay we just stayed home and played with the boys and had dinner on the deck.  The hubs built a fire and the boys enertained us.  It was an awesome evening.   Then the next evening we went out to celebrate at the Grove Park Inn for dinner.  Then we rode up on the parkway and back to the place where we became engaged.  It was such a nice evening.

Anniversary enertainment by the boys.

Views from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
We have not done our official back to school shopping but we did take advantage of the Toys R Us buy a back pack get a free lunch box sale.  Each boy picked out their own pack and lunch box and of cours our Cars man went with the Cars 2 theme for both items.  Brayden tood the Madagascar route for the pack but came back to cars for the lunch box.

We got to have ice cream with cousins.  Always a treat being with the cousins.

We played a lot of games of Cars Monopoly.
Built lots of Lego Cars and made up our own spy gear with the Legos.
We spent one day at a local Hands On museum.  The boys had a blast.  They got to build and race Lego cars.  They got to build with wooden blocks, play with big bubbles, write and draw on a huge chalk board, put on a puppet show and a stage show and LOTs of other things.
This was our first time visiting this museum but we will definately be back, 

We spent another day at Dollywood.  It was a HOT day.
The boys discovered the Rampage ride and loved it.  It is a fun water ride that cooled us off and left us soaked.  They also enjoyed some showes like Gadzillion bubbles and shows by the Penguin Players. 

We had a great week.  This summer has been so laid back and relaxed.  I am so thankful for every day and every minute that I have with these boys.  We are totally trying to forget that school begins in 20 days.
