Hot Air Balloons!

Last weekend we woke up a little earlier than normal and went out to watch the hot air balloons take off.  It is so incredible to watch in person.  The last time we went, I was pregnant with look at that boy!  So fun!

Love this picture!

Aubrey Rose takes the oldest cousin responsibility very seriously.  
It is so precious.  
The other day I found her reading to her little cousin, Riley.  
Aubrey doesn't know how to read yet, 
so she just sang "Jesus Loves Me," 
as she turned the pages.  
It was the cutest thing.

Our babies

Our babies are growing up fast. 
Pictures help feel almost like a moment frozen in time.

Vroooooooom!!! Vroooooooom!!

The other day, Austin rolled his high chair over to me and asked to get in.
I thought he might be hungry.
Instead after sitting down, he asked for his trucks.
 He just drove...
 and drove...
and drove them all around.

 vroooooooom, vroooooooom!"
 He laughed.
 We both smiled.
 He has a huge passion for anything with wheels.  It often makes me wonder...
 where God will lead him in the future.  I can't wait to find out.

Weekend away

A couple of weekends ago, we got a weekend away in Carmel.  This time we left the kiddos at home.  It was relaxing, refreshing, lots of laughter and fun.   
It was a weekend of watching Blake and his team play tennis,

with friends and family near.
They placed 2nd!  Way to go Copper Swag!
We also got to celebrate my sweet cousin Chelsey's birthday.  Love you Chelsey Marie!!
 When we got home, we celebrated Chelsey's birthday some more with the kiddos!
It was such a great weekend.

Fall Decor

I can not believe we are already in the middle of September.  Even though our weather has not cooled down yet, it was time to decorate for fall.  This year I moved a few things around.

Entertaining to who???

Here are a few of the ways our sweet little boy likes to entertain himself...
I know there will be days when Blake and I will miss the pitter patter of their little feet running all around the house, so even in these kind of moments we try to soak up the memories.  

These kind of moments often like to happen when we are trying to race out the door.  At least we can laugh about it now.  :)
We love you little boy even if you entertain yourself in ways that keep your daddy and I extra busy!!!

Her treasures :)

Aubrey Rose was collecting her "treasures," while we were playing outside.  LOVE this little girl!

Best friends

As these two get older, they play more and more together. 
The other day I over heard them playing "house."  Aubrey told him she "would be the mommy and he would be the daddy." They played for so long.  I love that when that happens. I love watching them become the best of friends.

Enjoying our routine...

We back in full swing over here with school.  
We all love it.  Aubrey Rose absolutely loves school.  
She loves her teacher.  She loves her friends.  
She loves learning.  
She is going to school 3 days a week in the mornings.  
We walk to school each morning.  
Most days Aubrey rides her bike.  
Sometimes she chooses to ride in the stroller next to her brother.
Every day, we stop and check the peaches.  
They are sooooo close to being picked.  
Any day now!
 After we drop Sissy off at preschool, Austin and I continue on for a little longer adventure,
 which usually ends us at the park, which makes this boy a very happy, little guy.
 When Aubrey was little she loved to go up to the highest slide, but when she got to the top, she froze.  I think it was a little LOT higher than she thought.  She quickly changed her mind and would not go down the slide.  This little boy has NO FEAR at all!!  Forget the little slides, he wants the biggest, tallest, longest slides and he goes right down...loving every second of the "weeeeeeeeeeee."  No fear!
I have been loving our extra time together, 
just Austin and Mommy.  
 And just like last year Daddy picks Aubrey up on his golf cart 
and every now and then she gets spoiled with extra friends to pick her up!  
Thanks Big Papa!!!
