July - Part 3

We celebrated Gracie June's birthday with our traditional donuts, she had balloons all in her room, she popped them all to find $4, then we spent the day at the pool. Gracie June also ended up having Grandma and Capri come stay at our house for her birthday!  It was so much fun celebrating my sweet girl's 4th birthday! You can watch the video of our day here

We FINALLY moved into our new house the day after Gracie June's birthday. My mom came down to help us move and she stayed the whole week! We had so much fun having my mom here for so long. She was such a BLESSING to us during the move! That woman has way more energy that my 31 year old self!!! I don't know how she does it!

We celebrated Capri's birthday with donuts for her birthday and then we even made some chocolate chip cookies that night. I was so glad that we got to spend her special day with her!!!

Before Grandma and Capri went home, we took Capri shopping and to get a pedicure. It was some much needed girl time.

We have been fishing in our pond behind the house. I was the first to catch a fish LOL!

We got a welcome basket from our neighborhood social committee. We are absolutely loving it in the neighborhood already!

Summer has come to an end, but we are so excited for what's in store for our little family. Life is so busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way. God has blessed us in so many ways and we are so excited to be able to share our blessings with others! I am so grateful for my wonderful husband, my two precious kids, my family, my friends, and our community.

July- Part 2

We went shopping several different times throughout the month of July to spend our birthday money. It was a lot of fun to let the kids pick out toys that they wanted (mostly from TARGET and one trip to Toys R Us)

We had our annual family vacation at Amelia Island. I absolutely LOVE this time of year because we get to spend time together away from work and the hustle and bustle. We get to just enjoy each other! This year was the best so far! My kiddos didn't have to take naps, so they got to enjoy every minute of playing and fun in the sun. It was a blast!!!

I ran ONE day on the beach and I didn't have my headphones. The view was beautiful but it was SO hard without anything to listen to.

Baby Ray also made our trip so much fun! He is definitely THE MOST CHILL baby ever!!!!

Largest drip castle in the world!!!

Snacks were great!

We played Bean Boozled altogether and it was a blast! You can watch the video here!

Gracie June was a mermaid again this year! haha!

We did the Sour Candy Challenge in our hotel room. Gracie June was hilarious! You can watch our video of it here.

The trip was a blast and we are always sad to leave!

We got a new game called The Wet Head Challenge and it is a lot of fun! I prefer using just water, but Chance and Caycen like to do crazy liquids to mix it up. You can watch us play it here.

Dollar Tree shopping as a reward!

We celebrated Ava's 4th birthday at the Tree House in the mall.

More toys!

Gigantic ice cream cookie sandwiches at the pool

Caycen and Gracie June were getting so excited about the new house!!!

Gracie June went to her first cheerleading camp at Richmond Hill High School. She had a blast!

Day 1 of camp was Neon Day:

Day 2 was Wacky Tacky Day

Day 3 was Disney Day

Day 4 was Pajama Day

Day 5 was their performance day

One of Gracie June's afternoon teachers, Kaylie, is a cheerleader so she had to get a picture with her favorite high school cheerleader!

Gracie June loved cheer camp and I'm sure we will do it again next year! I created a little video for her week of cheer camp here.

We made glow in the dark slime! You can watch our video here.

Chickfila cookies are the best!

We also made EDIBLE slime! You can watch that video here.

I got to have a one-on-one date with my sweet boy while Gracie June did cheerleading one morning. We sat and ate breakfast together and just talked about life. I absolutely LOVE this boy to pieces!!!!

Spending time with my family during the summer is what I love most. We get to have so much quality time together (some days so much that we end up getting on each others' nerves some days haha) and I will cherish these days forever!
