He's Walking!!

When Brett and I got home from our cruise, we were surprised to find Brooks walking!! He's definitely my latest walker finally starting at 16 months, but it's been nice having him not walk. I felt like he was still my baby. I guess my baby's growing up! I love this boy!!!!

Labor Day

On Labor Day, we came out to the sand dunes for a little while and played around a bit. The kids loved it and we all enjoyed getting a little sunshine and fresh air...

There was a great hill with a steep edge that was just perfect for jumping off of. So we all took turns doing it. It was so fun!!!

Me and my monkey children enjoying some time at the dunes.

Our Summer Plans

Just before school got out for the summer, the kids and I made a list of something fun to do every day of summer vacation. It was so nice to be able to tell the kids to go look at the list and pick out what they wanted to do for the day. I'm proud to say that we did most of the activities on the list! I'd like to do it again next summer, so I'm putting the list on here so I know I won't lose it and it won't get ruined.
