This machine is awesome. It is so easy to use. We simply love it. Now I literally have no excuse to not to make snow cones all the time.
I can't believe I am so behind on posting this one. But that's life, right?
When my cousin Alex and his fiancé were in town, my mom hosted another Sunday Puppy Pool Playdate. It seems like we are always splashing around with the crazy pups.
So, in honor of school starting this week, I give you our last HOORAY in photo form:
Fun Fact: Abby HATES the pool. Poor girl. She does not appreciate the personal floatie we give her and the special attention. We even let her in the pool before opening the gate for Z.
Because the 4th was on a Tuesday this year, the holiday weekend felt like it lasted FOREVER.
Don't get me wrong. We had a really awesome weekend. It was busy. There was a lot of adulting happening. There was a fair amount a whining. There was a LOT of eating.
Our 4th of July on the 1st of July
Sounds confusing. But our town celebrated the 4th on the 1st this year. The town square (yes, we have one of those, and it is an actual square) party began in the afternoon. But we waited until after dinner to head down.
What a spectacular week!
We joined my husband's parents and his brother's family in the southwest for a 7-day Caravan tour of the Grand Canyon and other amazing spots.
Thank you (again) to all of the men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedoms. We know freedom is not free. It comes at a steep cost. We do not take it for granted.
We packed SO much fun and crazy into one weekend. It was a bit insane. Anyway, let's jump right in and recap these crazy four days.
Reagan was going through withdrawal. She really needed her besties.
I can relate... I miss mine. But that's a whole other thing.
So we invited her BFFs over for a sleepover. We took the girls to our (new) favorite pizza joint - Aunt Mary's.
We literally live in the pool during the summer. Actually, since we installed a heater last year, we have spent countless weekends in it as well.
This is my new favorite picture:
How cool is that? The view from our new waterslide*.
Stu played around with the GoPro in the pool. He got some awesome video shots of the Beast and her beloved frisbees.
*How long will I refer to the slide as being new? In case you were wondering, we picked this thing up from Sams Club... And the super awesome floaties are from Sams as well.
Family & Life
Nothing super fancy here. Probably not life changing either. But you might enjoy a peek into our world.
