Bid Day, Soccer, and the last day of Summer!

Cali went Kappa and we couldn't wait to go to Bid Day and congratulate her! 

We took a tour of Maple and made a stop at the Tri Delt house to congratulate Lauren's cousin Suzanna! Ava was in heaven! 

Our last stop was at the Chi O house!!!  
Ava and one of our favorites, Day! 

I can't believe A could be on this lawn in 15 years!!! 

She made herself right at home in the tv room! 

The 2014 Blue Dolphins!  Do they look like winners or what?!

Ava is finally, officially on the team!  She even gets her own uniform! 

I could kiss his little cheeks off!

She needed a little water break! 

My babies took one for the team and did the cold water challenge for their mommy after the game!!  We've done a lot of cold water challenges lately!  

We spent one of our last days of summer at the splash pad with Kiki!  We are so glad she is back in town! 

We had so much fun! 

How silly is this boy?!

Welcome back Kiki!

Bob and Jenny babysat one night and let the kids make their own pizzas for dinner!

They did a little craft project too.  

My little artist! 

While the kids were crafting B and I were celebrating Tressa and Ben's engagement!  It was such a fun party! 

Love these sweeties holding each others hand while they sleep! Being three is hard work! 

I got to spend lots of quality time with this guy this summer while the other two were at speech!  We had lots of coffee dates at the "Coffee store!"  I could just eat him up! 

I love this little guy! 

Summer fun at Chuck E Cheese!  Bob stopped by to play some games too!  I think Ava might have won this game! 

Riding on a roller coaster (Kind of) in the middle of Chuck E Cheese! 

This boy was in heaven! Riding in a big truck with one of his favorite girls! 

Anna has a fun mommy!  She got on the hamster wheel with Brooksie and Anna! 

Sweet friends!

I think they rode this horse five times in a row! We will miss Anna so much next year at school!

Summer Fun!

Back to School haircut day!!! These kids love to get their hair cut! 

Any time I touch Brooks' hair he says, "Don't touch my hair!  I'll tell Christina you messed it up!" ha 

Ta-da! We are ready for school!

After haircuts we had a neighborhood lemonade stand with our friends! How cute are these girlies!

The boys are pretty cute too!

Our first customer was our mailman!  So nice of him to stop! 

Just flagging down some customers!

Bob and Jenny stopped by for lemonade too! 

Anna came to see us too!  We love our friends! 

Little cuties! 
We aren't quite ready for summer to be over!

Happy half birthday baby Everly!  We were so excited to celebrate Everlys half birthday with her!  She looked so cute! 

Jennifer made Everly's outfit and it was precious! She made the cake too and it was super cute! 

Cake Time! 

The kids were in heaven!  They got to go for rides on the lawnmower and see a tractor too! They even got to ride in Chris's old bronco that he got running! 

A wanted to help Jennifer drive! 

Picking flowers for her mommy!

The kids were obsessed with the bird bath!  I don't think they had ever seen one in real life!  They couldn't wait for a bird to come take a bath! 

We had a rainy day so we pulled out some old stocking stuffers that we haven't played with yet!  They loved the tattoos!  Brooks said he wanted them to cover his arm!  He wanted a glitter tattoo sleeve!  That makes me a little nervous! ha 

And we built a castle with play do... This is our castle!

We had a boys night one night and went to dinner in Rogers.  Knox slept on the booth at PF Changs the entire time we were there! 

He woke up when we got to Fast Lanes and it was time to play!  

The boys had so much fun!  The big boy included! 

We ended our night playing laser tag!  White shirts aren't the best thing to wear for laser tag!  I will have to remember that next time!  I do love this picture of these sweet boys though!
