My mom sewed matching tee-shirt dresses for all the girl grandkids. They were very excited (regardless of expressions) to wear their new dresses to the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede tonight. Love creating these memories with my family!
It was a very hot day at Silver Dollar City with the Barz family that ended early due to lightning and rain but the kids got to ride the puppies several time. It was their favorite ride, they said.
Third cousins - Jeremiah and Lily. When Joel and I were babies, we were in St. Louis together while our parents were at Seminary and have a similar couch picture like this one. Who could have imagined these second cousins would be getting together every summer and that our kids would truly know their third cousins? God is good.
There's nothing quite like watching your husband and his best friend from college (who also happens to be your second cousin) read to their kids at night. Heart warming.
Yesterday was our 9th anniversary, and we spent it traveling with our 3 kids. I am so thankful for the miles we travel and the memories we make together, every day of our lives.
Family blueberry picking this morning! It was hot but the kids enjoyed eating as we picked along.
Emma's napping in her bed, Nathan's doing quiet time in his room, and Lily will be sleeping on me shortly which means it is time for me to get busy baking! How did moms get anything done before baby wraps???
Ready for 4th of July fireworks in our usual spot in front of St. Paul's!
Making the most of this hot and humid summer day with our new pool. The kids love it, as Lily and I sweat it out in the shade. Bonus points to Andy for blowing up the pool and not passing out when he couldn't find a pump! 😂
