Good-bye, summer!

I was getting ready to do a blog post on the first day of school and realized that I never posted several pictures from our summer break.  Oops! We had a great summer!!

MK and Daddy

Molly Kate and her Daddy.  I thought this was a great picture of both of them!

MK- big girlSeriously, this girl is growing up so fast.  She demands a real cup most of the time and doesn’t even want to sit in her booster seat at the table anymore.  She thinks she is so old!

Twister!In July, we took our annual trip to Holiday World.  My college roommates and I always take our kids up for a day at the park. It is always a big highlight of the summer. The kids enjoy the sleepover as much as the park!  Here are three sweet boys playing twister while waiting for the park to open.

All lined up and ready to goWe took 11 kids with us this year.  We are CRAZY!!!

Kids and mamasI love these girls and their kids!

Turkey rideThe only picture I took in the park.  I was too busy counting kids the entire time. 🙂

cousins!Soon after Holiday World, my aunt, uncle, cousin’s wife, Danielle, and her kids came down for the day.  Katie brought her kids up and Mom and Dad were here as well.  It was a FULL house!  The kids had a lot of fun together and it was great to catch up.

Sweet EthanWhile this sweet 4 year old can drive me crazy some days, he is such a sweet boy.  I found him rocking this baby to sleep one day.  He loves playing babies with his sister.

Braves gameAt the end of July, we took the boys on a road trip to Atlanta (Molly Kate spent a weekend with her Nana and Papa).  We drove down on a Saturday morning, ate lunch at the Varsity, and headed to Turner Field. This was the boys’ first major league baseball game and they were super excited.  Zach got us great tickets and we were very close to the action.  The Braves handed out free hats as we arrived and Carter and Seth were thrilled to wear a Braves hat (Ethan wouldn’t give up his Cardinals hat).

SleepoverAnd one of their favorite parts of the weekend…sleeping in a hotel!  They loved the pull-out sofa.

AquariumOn our way home on Sunday, we stopped at the Chattanooga Aquarium.  The boys LOVE this place!
