Back to school dinner

This year we made a special back to school dinner for these sweet boys. Steak is their favorite, so that's what Daddy grilled up. We got to talk about the upcoming school year and talked about what they are excited about and also nervous about. We said a special prayer that they would be protected and learn lots and make good choices. Love this new tradition ❤️ so proud of these boys 

Stay cation

One of our good friends found out we wanted to do a stay cation with the kids and gifted us 2 nights on the strip in a suite. We were shocked and so grateful and SO EXCITED!! We took the kids and stayed 2 nights at the Paris. We had a great time besides them seeing naughty things on the strip! And also besides me almost getting in a fist fight with a drunk girl who rammed into Quinn and hit him in the head. We'll save that story for another day... Haha. Thank you sweet friend (you know who you are) for blessing us with the best 2 days ever! Totally made our summer.

Summer part 2

We held on to every single last bit of summer that we could. We spent a lot of time at home since Brooks was just a new baby, but looking back we also had a ton of fun and made the most of it! We managed to stay healthy all summer long which was a HUGE win!! So long summer... We can't wait to see you next year!
