Summer Recap - June

I am ready to post in real time, so I won't forget about this little blog space.  So, I am going to bullet point our wonderful summer into a couple of posts and then move on to right now!!
Having all 3 in preschool, "summer" looks different than it will in the future.  We had almost 4 months of fun and family time.  Here are some snapshots of our June:
We spent so many hours at the pool - this particular time we were at
my parents' house

 BFFs Collins and Sims
We had Beach Bash VBS at church
 Kina and her girls stayed with us a couple of nights during Vacation Bible School.  They played with us on the slip n' slide, headed to the Galleria carousel and some shopping with us and even tried Doodle's Italian Ice for the first time!  So fun!
Late night pajama run to Doodle's - Heath thought we were insane
 Sassy Bottom at the Lifetime pool.  Wow, she was a roller coaster this summer.  She became an awesome swimmer, but I never could figure out what would satisfy this opinionated 2 year old at the pool.  One trip she cried 1 hour and 15 minutes because she was too young to do the slide.  Wow.  Just keeping' it real.  Love her and a lot of times she is easy and goes with the flow, but she knows how to do me in!
 We visited friends at Smith Lake

The little 2 tried tubing with Heath and liked it!
Our friends Kendall and Maggie took the boys tubing and even taught them how to jump off the bridge
Then... dinner and s'mores
 Most of us were clothed:)

Uncle Derek got a new convertible and took the cousins for a drive (except for a doubtful Collins)
 Then at the end of June we took our annual mountain trip to Highlands, NC with friends

 I am surprised how much I like hiking!

 No words
We visited an awesome waterfall that we found last year (side note - Collins has a small obsession now with waterfalls - she seeks them out and loves to say the word.  So random)
 Gross - crawfish
 The daddies were adventurous and dove in the FREEZING cold water
 SO COLD...not that I would know:)
 The mountains are always a fabulous time of hiking, running, playing on playgrounds and in waterfalls and just watching the kids be kids!  I am amazed how much fun we have doing the simplest of things with friends in the mountains.  The boys live for it every year and are reminiscing now as they are watching me type this.
 Finally, we spent many nights all summer playing with our wonderful neighbors
 They are gracious to always entertain us and let my children run crazy around their house and yard

Now, on to July...
