Enchanted Forest...

We took the kids to Enchanted Forest last weekend. The kids had so much fun and it was so nice to stay out of the heat.  Besides visiting our favorite fairy tales, we watched a short play. (Little Red Riding Hood) The kids also enjoyed some rides and then we finished with  a picnic lunch.

Back To School Celebration Dinner...

We are so excited for the new school year to begin. (OK not ALL of us, meaning me) I put together a little celebration for the kids and they LOVED it. The boys were so surprised. It was a great way  to start the year. Enjoy some pictures of our party.

Summer Camping Trip...

We enjoyed our family camping trip to Honeyman State Park. It's something our family does every year. It is something we look forward to every summer. The kids LOVE getting to spend the weekend camping with all their cousins. The weather was perfect and we only had a few ticks to deal with.  

We learned about fire safety

Enjoyed spraying the hose!

Did a lot of digging in the sand

Found a Great Candy Store

Did a little swimming

Ate great food!

These are all of the cousins that made it this year! We are already looking forward to go back next year.
