Summer Activites

We have been staying busy this summer. Trying to enjoy these last few weeks before school starts, one week from today to be exact. (but that's another post) ha!

The circus was in town and we headed to see the fun with our dear friends Dana and Jackson. Jacob, Luke and Jackson heading in.

Jacob and Luke enjoying the pre-show, up close and personal.

Time for a snack, they all chose sno cones.

Well, except Sarah who enjoyed Daddy's popcorn. She was going at it with both hands...must have Daddy's salt tooth!

With a tummy full of popcorn, Miss Sarah fell fast asleep in Daddy's arms.

My very own clowns...they would fit quite nicely in the circus if you ask me! :)

On another note, I've been trying to do some workbook pages with the boys. They were enthusiastic about it at first but that quickly diminished as the summer went on.

We recently had our friends, the Wards over for dinner. There were eight adults and nine kids. Whew!

Miss Sarah thought it would be fun to crawl her way into the box of snacks in the pantry. She sat in there for a good 10 minutes and played.

A week doesn't go by that we don't visit one of the local malls. The boys took their saved quarters and used them for the rides at Willowbend. This was Sarah's first mall ride and she actually sat still and enjoyed it.

I think sometimes she forgets she's only one. She wanted out of the stroller so she could walk through the mall. The walk from the play area to the restroom was about three times as long with her walking all over the place. Oh boy, our outings are quickly changing. I don't know how I'm ever going to get any errands run with little miss and her busy self! (but that too is another post!!)

Luke decided the laundry basket was the perfect spot to look at one of his library books.

We also have been to the movies several times to see Cars 2, The Smurfs and Cars 2 again. We recently went to an indoor water park outside of Tyler that was a fun time. The kids went strong all day and didn't sit down except to eat lunch. Sadly, I don't have any pictures from these outings. We have had a fun summer and are going to enjoy our last week together.


  1. Sounds like y'all are packing in all the fun you can! I especially love the photo of the three of them walking away in the mall!! You DO have your hands full! Of precious cargo, but still FULL! You are doing a great job, Katherine. blessings ~ tanna

  2. I can totally relate to your outings, from one Mama of a busy little miss to another. We are on vacation this week and Kaitlynn is into EVERYTHING. I've never seen anything like it. There is no surface left untouched.

    I can also relate to your crazy busy summer and packing in all the activities while you can! This new school schedule is really going to cramp our style, ha!

    So glad you've enjoyed so many fun things. The circus looks like a blast. Can't wait to hear how the upcoming week goes. I'll be right there with ya!

  3. Love the picture of the kids walking in the mall. Very sweet! You guys have had a Fun filled summer. I know Jacob made some great memories. I hope you enjoy your last week before Jacob is off to school. Can't wait to see y'all on Wednesday.

  4. Lots of fun things to do since you can't do anything outside! Great pictures! My grand littles are busy but they bring so much joy to us all! Miss you all so much! see you in a few weeks! Give them all a kiss from grandma!

  5. Oodles and oodles of fun! I love your sweet circus clowns and your little miss. I'm glad you've found some things to do to keep cool in these hot summer days. Hugs and love.
