Summer fun!

It is hard to believe that summer is over! Brandon's first day of school was today so its onto to another year and back to the routine! Our summer was not full of the trips and visits we had planned but it was blessed all the same. In June, Brandon's dad came to live with us after a bout of illness. Although stressful at times, we have hopefully made memories that will last a lifetime. We spent most of the summer completing home projects and swimming in the neighborhood pool. This weather has been tough to tolerate pregnant and I have had to take it easy more than I would prefer. Another shock to starting the school year is that we are 10 weeks away from the arrival of our newest addition! I will try to catch you up on some of Garrett's summer excitement in the next few blogs...sorry about the hiatus!

First up is our trip to Kentucky for "Day out with Thomas". In June we drove to the Kentucky Railway Museum for this event. We were joined by aunt Keri, Landon, Meme and our good friends, the Allens and their Nana! It was a VERY HOT day but the boys had a great time!

Garrett was so excited during the train ride! The windows were so steamed up from the heat and humidity.

Here's Thomas!

Cant have a Thomas event without a tent full off train tables!
