Once we returned from the beach, we quickly realized we had less than a month to enjoy summer fully (now that swim team was over) before school starts! Summers are SHORT around here! :)
Sweet Mae was saved during Revival so we watched her get baptized
We've had a great garden experience this year! We planted cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans (first time), corn (first time), and green peppers (first time.... and I'm STILL waiting for them!). Brenda canned 7 quarts and we've enjoyed a gracious plenty of green beans (and I have frozen some). I have also frozen roasted tomato soup and roasted spaghetti sauce. I can't wait to enjoy our garden more this winter!
We were pretty pumped about the corn!
Adelyn's friend Ava spent the night and they made cake pops!
Fun with friends in the driveway!
Pool time with friends
We went to Get Air and had a blast!
Adelyn completed and documented 10 hours of exercise for PE last year and got a free pass to Get Air. This girl was able to get to the top of the wall. My kids love to watch American Ninja Warrior!
A little friendly jousting
Water gun fight!
We went to Lanier Islands Waterpark with the Duffs. It's about a 45 minute drive, but we went via boat and it was only 20 minutes
They do a foam party - bubbles and a blower and it was super fun!
James wouldn't do this slide, but Adelyn did both sides (the right side is really steep!)
The kids called this the "superman" slide because you went down on a mat on your tummy
James and Donovan
There was a big water playground behind us. David, Karen, and I enjoyed some adult time while the kids were occupied. The lunch here was great!
The Abernathy kids came over for a sleepover and we made slime
So fun and easy!
Tatem's face is hilarious!
Elijah and James playing pirates
Cousin pool time. Notice Bella, the dog, on the raft!
The kids also went my parents' house in SC for 3 nights and had a blast playing putt putt, going to the movies, and getting in some quality grandparent time without us. Seth and I had 3 date nights (Avalon, Ponce City Market, and seeing The Big Sick) and I did a major closet clean-out. Good stuff!
We had some lazy days and some crazy days! It was a terrific summer!
