Summer Update

Even though we don't have school age kids, somehow I still get swept up in the busyness of summer that seems to overtake everyone this time of year.  And apparently, since I haven't blogged in over a month, that affects my time to write here!

We just got back from visiting my parents in Kentucky for two whole weeks.  I won't tell you how difficult it is to solo parent in someone else's home for that long - and sleep with Mr. Wiggles (aka Corbin) for 14 days.  But, it's worth it for the boys to get to spend time with their grandparents, so I just deal with it.  I only had one grandparent growing up, whom I didn't get to see as often as I would have liked, so it's important to me that the boys have lots of memories with Grandma and Papa.  Needless to say, I'm glad to be home.


My parents raise cattle on their farm (in Ky they call everything a farm, not a ranch, etc), so Hayden had a great time going out with Papa every morning and feeding the cows.  He came home with a new hat and pair of boots he wore while out on the farm everyday.

One of the best parts was definitely how green everything was - so beautiful compared to our current landscape with the drought this year.

Now we're just trying to settle back into everyday life.  I felt like there were a thousand things waiting for me when I returned.  I'm still catching up on everything and our suitcases are still not unpacked, HA!
