Matching Aprons

The girls like to help me cook so Adam surprised us with these matching aprons. My friend, Melody from Simplie Girlie Designs made these and I thought she did such a great job!


Last weekend we went on our first ever family camping trip. We went to a nearby lake, found our spot and pitched the tent. Let me tell you, it was sooo hot! We thought it'd get cooler pretty quick after the sun went down. That was not the case. We were hot, sweaty and it was very hard to go to sleep. I think our next camping trip will be when we have cooler temps. I'm not sure if that will ever happen though. It's been so hot for so long here.

Shelby and Adam put up the tent while....

Bethany napped in the van.

Then she snuck some Cheetos while Daddy was grilling burgers.

TaDa! Tent's done!

There was no campfire so no smores...there was a burn ban in effect. :(

Shelby told us a story about a Cowboy and Cowgirl. That girl has some imagination!
You can tell we were HOT! Look how sweaty she was!

Time to hit the trail!

All in all we had a fun time. Next time I think I'd rather "camp" in a camper though. I just don't think I'm the outdoors-y type. I like a bed, an air conditioner and a SHOWER!!!

First Days of School

Shelby and Bethany are having fun in school this year. Shelby's already been Koality Kid of the week and is making good grades. Bethany is having so much fun with her friends. She learned about colors last week and brought a pink ducky to show and tell on Friday.
