Pool days

We have been going to our friends country club pool quite a bit. It's the coolest place! They have the neatest water park for the kids. It's been fun having things to look forward to every week, and especially things that can get out these kids' energy!! One one of the days we were forced to drop off the kids and have a day date... (Much needed and SO nice!) so we took the baby and went to breakfast, and then later on Kelly sent these sweet photos to me. So thankful for friends who love on my kids. 

4th 2016

We spent the 4th with our BFF's this year. Swimming, BBQ'n and missing Daddy who was working. I survived the night with 4 kids by myself ... A liiiitle hectic, and I lot of fun. The boys (especially Luke) are completely obsessed with fire works right now, so they were in heaven! I LOVE this holiday so much. Another great 4th in the books!

It's been hotter than heck, but summer has already been pretty dang good. We have laid low A LOT since Brooks was born, but we can't sit still too long or we start to get antsy. This is what our summer has looked like so far...

Adult Disney trip

Say what?! You heard me right. We went an on adult only Disneyland trip and lets just say this.... Every Disney loving parent needs to do this at least once in their life. We had SO MUCH FUN! Of course there were moments when we wished our kids were there, but man... If I could do this once a year I SO WOULD. Cant believe this fun trip was almost a year ago. Time flies! Time to plan the next one... 

(This also happened to be during the 3 week period that I had the worst hair of my life) 

Cocktail at Disneyland?! Ok! 

1st time eating at Carthay Circle. So yummy!

Day 2!

Group selfie 

Such a great time with this crew! So many laughs and memories 

Mikes face... Best picture of the entire trip. This grown man was terrified of akat every single ride! We are still teasing him about it. 

This girl painted this amazing Mickey portrait in 30 seconds with water! Where does Disneyland find these talented people?!
