Is it October already?

Let me start by saying, WOW how the time has flown by. We have been so incredibly busy lately.


In June we went to Spain for 10 days without the children and it was such a great time! In July we celebrated Sloan turning FIVE and finished up her second year of swim team! She did amazing and swam an entire lap in around 47 seconds, and was even able to swim an entire lap of backstroke without quitting or turning over! Our girl is doing amazing! Now we have moved from swimming to gymnastics and the kids are really enjoying it. Did I mention Sloan started KINDERGARTEN in SEPTEMBER? Where did the time go?

But back to our story... In August we drove to Columbus Ohio where Rick was working a gig for seven weeks, and up to Cleveland  to see my college roommate and best friend. We also visited the Columbus Zoo where we rode a CAMEL! 

At the end of August we went to Myrtle Beach for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday and had such an amazing time at the Kingston Plantation Resort. They have a little splash pad/ water park perfect for kids Sloan and Piper's ages. 

At the end of September, we flew to Cabo San Lucas Mexico for a short week, spent with Rick's parents. It was a wonderful week and a perfect end to summer, even though it was technically the first week of Fall. The kids spent most of their time swimming in the pools, and it was a great refreshing week!

The second weekend of October, we flew to Chicago for a wedding. The kids had a fabulous time and so did the grown ups! we LOVED visiting Chicago and hope to go back for a visit another day. Congrats to Adam and Rachel Snow!

Now we are back to the daily grind and we welcome it. Things have been so crazy busy, especially those 7 weeks Rick was away (we did see each other 5 out of 7 weekends so it wasn't horrible, but doing the day to day on my own wasn't a walk in the park either, especially with our new schedule!)

Next post will recap Sloan's birthday and then I will have to pick up where i can!
