My Favorite Pictures of the Summer


Tomorrow is my last day of summer before I report back to school for another year. We have a full summer. I have loved learning how to be a mom of 2 kids. I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures of the summer.

In June we had all the cousins together since we added Peyton and Karis to the mix. I love that Tanner and Peyton have so many cousins to grow up with.

Peyton has grown up from a newborn to a cool little baby. She is so mellow and fun. She loves the swings and going to the park. Just like Tanner she loves to be outside.
We had a great 4th of July at Mark and Kristen's block party. This was the 2nd year we went and I am hooked. Tanner loves this girl so much. I can just picture him being the protector for his cousins and sister.
Kipp got free tickets right behind home plate. Kipp, Tan, Jafta and Mark had a great time at the game. I love the friendship that my brother and my husband share. I am so blessed by my family.
Happy 4th of July babies.
Kipp is such a great dad. He loves his little Princess Pey Pey.
Our best friends Derek and Jackie had their baby Cyrus 2 weeks ago and we love him already.
Carson and Tanner playing in the water. Today we were driving to meet my mom at her pool and Tanner asked if Carson would be there.
Our summer involved staying cool in the water. Jafta and Tanner had fun at the fountains.
We went to Disneyland while Kelle and Aaron were here. This may be my favorite picture of the summer. We were sharing a treat and it was my turn for a bite. What a cutie.

I love these pictures, Howie! I am SO glad that you had such a good summer. I miss you and those two cute kids of yours. We need to get together again soon.
PS- I'm going back part time for sure, but only 2 hours a day. :)
