Good Bye Summer

With Fall here, I wanted to share this one special day. One of my favorite evenings with the kids. We went to a local lavender farm, this kids had such a blast exploring and cutting lavender. They even brought home little lavender satchels to put by their beds when they are sleeping. Payton couldn’t get enough of the smell, Miles couldn’t get enough of the millions of bees that were flying around. So fun to find someplace new to explore. Afterwards we explored a little more and found a local semi-private beach front on the Snoqualmie River. Payton picked a bucket full of blackberries and Miles stripped down and dug in the sand. The almost perfect little evening with these munchkins…the only thing missing was Daddy.DSC01790DSC01802DSC01808DSC01824DSC01828DSC01830DSC01835DSC01839DSC01888DSC01894DSC01898DSC01915DSC01916DSC01925DSC01926DSC01928DSC01931DSC01936DSC01939DSC01954DSC01959DSC01960DSC01963DSC01964DSC01969DSC01970DSC01975DSC01978DSC01981DSC01987DSC01989DSC02020DSC02026DSC02028

Miles 1st day of Pre-K!

And another one is off to school. Last year of preschool for this little dude. Always in disbelief when the kids start another year of school. I am so excited for him though…he is at a great school with amazing teachers! Payton went through the same program…so I know there are great things in store for him this year! Cheers to your last year little dude…I hope you have a blast in Pre-K!!!

First day of 1st Grade!

It’s official…summer is over and school has begun. I’m torn. I’m excited for Payton to get back into the swing of things…she loves school, loves the structure, and loves learning…but I’m not quite ready for them to go back yet. Summer went a little too quick! I absolutely know this year will be great and she will do amazing things! Go rock out 1st grade sweet girl!!!

July Catch Up

I can’t believe July has come and gone. Only a few more weeks until little miss heads into 1st grade. I’m trying to soak in every last second with these crazy exhausting kiddos before they head back to school. I just can’t believe how quick it is all going!

Some of my favorite July moments and pictures:

Fun in Texas

A couple weeks ago we were back in Texas to visit family and to see one of my oldest dearest bestest friends get married!
Being back reminded me that I never want to move back…it’s too dang hot! Like walking on the sun!
But the kids had a blast visiting all the grandparents, kissing on their baby cousin, and swimming for hours every single day. Miles even got over his fear of the water!! Huge step there!
Some pictures of our Texas fun:

last day of kindergarten!

Now this is a hard day.  My little Payton-Pie is not so little anymore. And it is killlling me! And yes I know I will probably be saying this every year, I have so far, lol, but seriously this year is a hard one!! She has grown so much, learned a ton, and lost a lot of teeth…ha! She looks older and more mature…I think that is the part that is getting me the most. But she is still my same little silly giggly caring sweet girl.
I am so proud of you sweet girl, you have worked so hard and learned so much. You have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of Kindergarten and that makes my Mama heart happy. You are going to rock first grade!!
…now off to go cry in a corner…booo hoooo.
