Random Summer Fun

Here are some details on the other random things we've been up to since I literally had only posted one time in 2015 (back in January!).

We colored Easter eggs. This was especially awesome since LO didn't get to color eggs with us last year.

LO went on her first overnight trip WITHOUT MOMMY OR DADDY. It was a Mission Trip with the Children's Ministry at our church. It was literally ONE NIGHT but it may as well have been a week! I hated not going with her, but she was in good hands and had a great time sharing her love of the Lord with others. I'm so proud of her! ((Sorry I don't have any pics to share.))

We went blueberry picking last week and the kids had a great time, although none of them seem to be fans of blueberries (yet... I'm still working on them!).

This boy!

Love his face in this pic!

This kid. He has my heart!

Oh how I love him so!

This crazy, 8-year-old, faux tattooed girl is all mine! Love her bunches!!

Oh. Right. We went on a family trip to Great Wolf Lodge a few months ago. It was a lot of fun! The kids especially enjoyed this MagicQuest game thing they were able to play throughout the hotel. Oh, and the waterpark was cool, too!

Just my kids being, well, you know, my kids! Goofballs.

Speaking of goofball... here's my handsome hero chilling on the new hammock (LOVE).

The bike that Chase refuses to give up is now the perfect size for his LITTLE brother. I'm hopeful he'll let us get him a new bike for his birthday in a few months...

We went to a cool Make-A-Wish event at a minor league baseball game, which included face painting! I think this is the first time Chase had his face painted! He of course chose Mario! He and LO also were able to run out on the field during the lineup with the center fielder, which was super cool!

Can you believe it? LO chose Rainbow Dash. ;)

Our local museum had a cool exhibit for Magic Tree House books series... and here is LO and Chase dressed like Jack and Annie from the books.

Pretty close, right? Hahaha!

We took this little DUDE rollerskating for his very first time! He did great and really loved it!

This guy clung to the wall almost the entire time. He's not so comfortable with wheels under his feet. We gotta work on that!

I guess that's a pretty good summary on some of the things we've been up to over the past few months. I'm hoping to get back to regular posting on the blog mostly because it's a great reference for me to remember some of the fun we've had as well as to see how the kids are growing up so quickly!

Stay tuned for homeschool updates and maybe even some pics from an upcoming (early) anniversary trip -- just the hubs and I!!! ((insert gasping shock n' awe here))
