4th of July!

2009-2013 4th of July Family Pics
4th of July was a low-key holiday for us this year. We started our day with the beach and Tanner's friend Kaylee came along. We had a great time and then Noah had to head to work and we headed to the Michaels' house for a pool party and cookout. The kids were fast asleep long before any of the fireworks started, but we had a great time instead. We managed to grab a family pic before the beach so we can continue our comparison! Izabel managed to wear a new dress two years in a row even though she can still wear last year's dress, however Tanner actually wore the exact same outfit :) We had a great day and finished out the holiday week with Despicable Me 2 at the movie theater today. The kids head to Massanutten for vacation with my parents tomorrow while I complete my second residency at ODU. Hope everyone enjoyed their Independence Day!!

Summer Fun!

This summer is super busy with school and my internship, but we have been trying to include some fun into our summer as well. The kids and I have been hitting the gym 3-4 times a week, which they love because they get to play. We've met up with Jackie and Jackson a few times and they love the play place at the Great Bridge YMCA. We've also been using the pool there. 

Last week we met up with Tanner's best (girl)friend from school for play time at "jumpy jump" and lunch. It was so cute watching them play together. Kaylee literally squealed when she saw Tanner and he was the kindest sweetest boy I've ever seen while he was playing with her. We was just on cloud nine the whole time....I think we're in trouble! We're planning another play date this week. The kids get along great and I have a good time with Kaylee's mom. Hopefully we can keep this up since they will be going to different schools next year (more on that later)!
