Winding Down Summer

School started on August 18th.
So before we dove back into alarm clocks and schedules, we:
Played claw machines, and won!
Levi too!
(don't look at his hair!)

Had dinner with Luke!

Rode bikes around the neighborhood, a lot.

Evening spur-of-the-moment park date.

Went to the library (or li-berry as Levi calls it), however, you wouldn't know it based upon this picture alone.  

Helping me in the kitchen.

Sneaked in brother's bed.

Had shakes at Sonic.
Top pic is last year, bottom is this year and I think it looks nothing like Jacob - must be the shaggy hair.

Went bowling.

Fresh haircuts and hot-towel treatment for all the boys.

Ice cream on the town square

Love our little town.

Enjoyed more ice cream by chasing down the ice cream truck!

Enjoying dinner (and dessert!) with cousins.
Do Luke & Kate look alike or what?!?!

Then fishing with the Grands.

 Watching American Inja Warriors ;)
Joining the Myobrace club.

Went to open house at Levi's new Pre-K, he was a tad excited!

Meet the teacher night at Jacob's school, big 3rd grader!
Now we're ready to get back into the swing of things.

4wheeler fun!

The boys enjoyed one last 4wheeler ride at my parents house before they moved.

My dad was using the trailer to load things out of his shed and the boys thought they'd ride along parade style :)

This one is a nut!  He keeps us laughing!

Church Love

With my parents moving, their church was kind enough to recognize them at their last Sunday service.

Before everyone headed back to the fellowship hall for cake and ice cream, they had my parents come to the front and several people came up to "roast" them.
You know it was funny if my dad was slapping-his-knee laughing :)
It was bittersweet.  I am happy to have them here, but I know their church misses them.
Thank you Restoration Church for all the love!

Community Center

Our town recently built a new community center with an indoor water park.
 We met Beth, Kate and Luke there one day.
It was a lot of fun!

Levi went down this slide a hundred times!

The silly monkeys
Levi lovin' the slide!
 Jacob's first time on a diving board - he loved it! 
I was so proud of him!
We will definitely be back!

Movin' on Up!

My parents sold their house in my hometown and are moving to our town! 
I'm happy they'll now be here, but you know what, I'm actually sad, too!
Even though I left (20yrs ago), I still had ties to my hometown and always had a reason to go back.
I had a great childhood and so many memories came flooding back each time I drove through that small town. 
I don't know how to explain it, it's just an odd/weird feeling. 
I still have family there, so it doesn't make it that sad I guess.  :)
We drove down to help pack, move boxes, clean, purge, etc...
Now my mom is not a hoarder, but she held onto a few things :)
So many things worth noting in this pic:  obviously my dad's hair!  mom's shirt, dad's shirt!
And little Beth.
Back of the picture said County Fair 1976 :)
(guess they left me with the babysitter, ha!)

Soooooo many newspaper clippings, but this one had to be my favorite!
She literally was "mother of the year!"  LOL!!
And the title still stands to this day! :)

 Now that's a good interest rate!

Beth made this crown.  It's a good 30yrs old.

Seriously, we look nothing alike.

This little gem made me laugh out loud!
On the front said Happy Father's Day.
Here's the inside:
Dear Dad, you might be old but I think you have a long way to go.
Dad you have been mean through days but I love you.
By: Beth and Kim
What a heart-felt Father's Day card!
You can't buy that in the store!  HA! :)

These glasses have been around forever and always gives us a good laugh! 

I loved games as a kid!  Still do!
Mom still had a few of ours.
Remember Stuff Yer Face?
The boys loved it.  Gosh that thing's old!
I was sad to leave, but I think I'll go down one more time before the big move.  :)
