Grandma & Grandpas

One of the fun things we did this summer was visiting Grandma & Grandpa Arnold. Most of Matt's family lives in the same town as his parents so we were able to get a lot of visiting in while we were there. His youngest sister was blessing their little boy that weekend so we were able to be there for that. Matt's twin brother lives next door to some people that own chickens, goats, and pigs. They were kind enough to let our kids burn some energy by chasing their chickens. I actually thought they were going to be scared of them but not so much........

They Jumped Right In :)

After chasing the chickens Lexie ended up with grass and rocks in her shoe. I just love this picture of her!

Brooklynn wanted her dad and uncle to push her really high on the swing. She's a brave girl asking those two to push her!!!!!

Uncle Cody was super nice and got the horse out so the girls could ride. He had been working all day and I am sure he was exhausted. Thanks Cody the girls and little kids had a blast.

Matt's mom has a beautiful yard. She loves to garden and has beautiful flowers every where. In the summer I love taking pictures of the kiddos there. These pictures were after church and the kids were so cute.

We had a lot of fun at grandma's.

There are so many other posts coming up about our last year. Stay tuned for posts about our trip to California, camping and the water park, the Denver Zoo (with some fun new friends), and our big move. We have been greatful for all of our opportunities this year. The Lord has truly blessed our family!

Back to School & Back to Blogging

Hi Everyone :) I decided that a 1st day of school post would be appropriate for our return into the blogging world. I have obviously not done a good job with my blog in the last year (in fact I think my last post was almost 1 year ago :( So here we go again.
School has come again (too fast I might add) and the girls were more excited to wear their new clothes than to actually go to school I think. Brooklynn is now in 4th grade and Alyssa is a 2nd grader. I can't believe how big they are getting.

We have definitely had a great summer together, I will miss my big helpers. But, the show must go on and there are many things to do and accomplish. It is nice to get back into a good schedule and routine. I am planning on catching everyone up on our summer adventures and hopefully there will be many more posts in my future :)
