Blogging hiatus OVER!!

Is anybody still here?? I started this post a month ago with the intention of catching up on everything we did over the summer, but after several weeks of trying to upload pictures and my computer overheating every time I uploaded more than a couple of pictures, I'm going to leave it at this. A semi-update of some of the thing we did a million months ago. So exciting, I know! I will get back into the routine of posting regularly and start back with Menu Monday--especially since I've made some delicious meals lately and know you all have been sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for me to start posting recipes again!

Let's rewind all the way back to July, shall we? I drove the kiddos to Indiana the beginning of July and we spent two weeks visiting friends---such a good time! Ben flew up there a few days before we came back home so he helped drive (okay, he did all of the driving since I did it on the way there by myself) back home. The kiddos were rock stars in the car and had a blast with all of their friends.

Grayson and his bff, Henry...

All six kiddos: EC, Ruby, Grayson, Henry, Ellis, and Whitt

Sweet Ellis

And I had a bunch more from that trip but they somehow disappeared and I'm not going to try to figure out how to stick them back in the middle of a post. Boo.

We came back home and went to a parade with a big group of our friends...

I could eat this boy UP!!!!

Emma Claire and Ford being cute

Grayson was in a MOOD! I'm rarely successful at capturing a decent picture of all three kiddos, but at least it's a good representation of our life. :)

I can't even begin to count the number of pictures we have of him making this face

Watching the air show

Grayson perfected his diving skills this summer...

First day of school---Kindergarten for Grayson!

First day of dance for Emmers

Grayson turned SIX! Not sure how that happened since he was just born last week!!

We had a fun little camping birthday party for him that ended up being mostly inside due to a lovely hurricane that had just made its way up the coast.

First day of soccer practice

I mean, really, how I don't bite those little cheeks off, I don't know....

Grayson's new favorite toy--Beyblades!

Whitt started Mom's Morning Out at our church one morning a week. He adores it. I don't adore being away from him but it's good for him...

We spent a fun weekend at the beach with our friends---Grayson, Gibson, Sanders, EC, and Tyler

And this is where the pictures stopped loading and I'm not going to fight with the computer anymore to try to finish. Probably the most random post ever but at least I've joined the blogging world again! :) Hope everybody had a great summer (and fall!!)!
