what we’ve been doing this summer

We have had such an awesome summer mostly because Tyler has been able to spend so much time with us.  He is working, but still has so much free time.  Jacoby loves having him home to wrestle and play sports with.  I know he will have a hard time when Tyler goes back in a month.  I’m glad we have had so much fun!

For the Fourth of July we were really missing home.  It was unbearably hot here but we still tried to make the most of one of my favorite holidays.The day went like this: breakfast with some of our good friends, going to Cars 2, going to dinner, playing games, and watching the fireworks.  We had fun together, but nothing can top what we’re used to.  We really missed our families!016013


Olivia was able to come stay a week with us.  We loved having her here.  I felt bad that the weather was so hot and miserable, but she seemed to not mind, except for the day I was dumb and decided we should go to the zoo. Smile We did a lot of shopping and she found some cute school clothes.  We also ate some good food: In-N-Out, Slurpees, Krispy Kreme Donuts, Dippin' Dots, and homemade Snickers.  We went to the waterpark that is nearby two different days and spent some time at our pool.  I’m so glad she was able to come and hope she will come again soon.  It was fun to spend some one-on-one time with her.  She was always so nice to help with Jacoby and read or play with him.  Thanks for coming, Livi!  We go home pretty soon and can’t wait to see our families!  We miss you.

I LOVE this! I knew you'd be blogging soon so I've been waiting ever since Liv left. All the pictures are sooo cute! Unfortunately I think Coby got his smiling skills from Tyler. Good thing he's so dang cute! Only a little over a week left till we get to see you guys. Soooo excited! Austin even quit his job so Tyler wouldn't be lonely when he went golfing.
