It was our first soccer day of the season and it went well. A little hot, but the kids did great and had a lot of fun!

Carter's My Little Pony Birthday Party

It seems to be traidtion that it rains on Carter's birthday. Luckily, this year with the new bigger house, I hadn't planned any outside activities since we have room to spread out a bit inside. The girls played, ran away from Sean and another brother, squealed, ate some dinner and cupcakes and had a blast. Carter has some really cute little firends and they all got along so nicely. Almost all of our family was able to come into town (except Poppy Bliss and Uncle Drew and Auntie and Uncle Kevin who were honeymooning) so having the whole family together was a treat in itself. Annie and Elliott (as well as Nama) stayed over and we loved having more time to spend with him. Another great birthday party is in the books. This year I even made a cake from scratch! Don't know what got into me!

Carter's 4th Birthday was the first day of school!

With an early September Birthday from time to time Carter's birthday will fall on the first day of school. This year, she started Pre-K and Sean started 2nd grade. She of course had to open a few presents before school. We went to a nice dinner at her choice of restaurant, Red Robin, and then went home to eat home made cupcakes and open the rest of her presents. Her teachers had a nice crown waiting for her but they didn't realize she was only turning 4. You'll notice it has 5's on it!

Aunti got Married!

What a wonderful weekend we have all had. From the delicious dinner at the rehearsal dinner, a day full of pampering, and a beautiful wedding there are so many wondeful pictures. I had a hard time narrowing down to this many!

Lake House Fun

 At the last minute, Nana and Poppi rented a lake house at Lake Anna. I was able to rearrange my work schedule and that allowed us to visit from Wed-Friday. We really enjoyed our time there. From the playground, the fire pit, boating, fishing, canoeing, it was all wonderful.

Yes, she is playing with the worms. . . .

Look at his concentration

She caught a small "carter" sized fish

She has a frog in her hand! (That she caught)

Sean is an expert at roasting marshmellows
