Summer Catch Up

It seems like all I do is play catch up on blogging, but because I am lazy and don't scrapbook I really need to be better at this so my children have some evidence that we really do fun things sometimes! We have had a really fun and busy summer with lots of visitors and fun trips. I always have mixed emotions when summer comes to an end, sad that we can't take off and do whatever we want but happy for peace and quiet. Some of our very best friends the Dowlings from Indiana came and stayed a week with us. It was so fun to catch up. I am realizing how lame I am in the picture taking department. Jessica was way better at taking her camera.
We love getting pedicures!!! They are so cheap here so my out of town friends love getting them while they are here and I am happy to oblige!!!

We went and saw the Eclipse premiere and this is what all the trash cans looked like at the theater. It was so nasty. Sad that is my only picture of that night:(
Of course we had to hit the beach even if it was freezing!!!!

The day our friends left we headed up to Vegas to meet up with Rob's family!!! The kids had so much fun with all of their cousins. We swam a lot (what else do you do when it is 105 outside), we bowled and just hung out.
"The Girls"
Evelyn and her sister Joanie at the bowling alley. It was a fun surprise for Aunt Joan to join us!!

The boys played lots of pool at the timeshare, they loved it.
We took a walk along the strip and you never now what you will see there. Rob and Bekah were the only ones smart/ dumb? enough to hold this snake!!!

All 12 grandchildren on the Baker side, so fun to see everyone!!!

The Big Day!!!!

I can't believe it!!! I have a middle schooler. Am I really that old? The kids all had a great first day. Tanner started 6th grade and aside from feeling like he was going to throw up all morning from nervousness, he had a great first day. Bekah started 4th grade, and Kyle started 1st. So it is just me and Luke and quietness all day. How sad:)
