Apples and pumpkins!!! Love this time of year when all of the apple orchards and pumpkin patches open up! This year, I wanted to bring the kids to Omaha to go to Vala’s Pumpkin Patch because we’ve never been to it yet. Plus, I haven’t ever brought them to the Omaha Zoo either, so I decided to load them up (John was out of town, EEEK!!) and make a weekend out of it!
Happy 4th of July!!! Happy Birthday America! We celebrated at Lake Madison and had a fun celebration staying up late watching fireworks, eating 28 bomb pops (red white and blue, duh!), and swimming in the lake! Such a fun holiday! The kids loved saying “Happy Birthday America!!!” every time they saw a flag :)
Here’s our 4th of July in photos!
Bomb pops = favorite popsicle
A couple weeks ago, we took a vacation to New York City and the Hamptons! This was a dream vacation with the combination of city life and beach life! I had always wanted to see the Hamptons so this was very exciting for me!
Happy FIRST birthday my wittle babay Faye. Sweet little angel child! We love her so much and she has completed our family with her sweet smily consta-grin. And now she’s ONE! What a year as a family of five and seeing all of our kids grow up – Faye definitely grew up the fastest! June 13th at 4:40am, 10 lbs 3 oz seems like just yesterday!! Goodness! Forget how big she was! WHEW! See her birth story here
I am on a whole nother stratosphere of crazy with this trip! But, I managed Vegas and airports and flying with 3 kids! And they had a TON OF FUN. The pools were incredible, the sun was shining, and the naps weren’t happening! :) It was an experience for sure!
My sister had a conference in Vegas, so my other sister and her two kids and our Mom all decided to join her last minute and booked a trip to Vegas! My sister’s husband and my husband were both on the same bachelor party trips, so we were solo anyways! What fun to meet up in Vegas – book the tickets and worry about everything later, right?! Basically!! EEEK!
