We were born for this...

August was a busy month around here. We moved into a new home (closer to Gabe's work and with a bit more yard), my little brothers came to spend the end of their summer with us, Gabe went out of town for work, and we took a last minute road trip.

We had so much fun with Benji and John, even though we spent a lot of time just hanging out around the house.




But on the last Friday they were here we surprised them with a trip to Sea World.





It was so hot outside! But with the different inside exhibits and splash zones we were able to keep cool. Roland enjoyed a lot of the day, which surprised us because we thought he wouldn't really care. On the way home we stopped at Red Robin and Cold Stone. By the time we headed home everyone was happy, full, and tired.


Gabe went out of town for a week and his flight happened to pass through Dallas. So I decided to surprise him with a road trip. We had a lot of fun and saw some of our favorite people along the way. Even though it was short and there were a lot of other places we could have gone it was a perfect little get away for Labor Day weekend.

Roland helped me with laundry before the trip...

Oh how I absolutely love this view...

Roland was so worn out after playing in the Kansas wind. He loves being outside, dogs,  and dirt.

 There are some things I am good and at others I really struggle with. Anything that has to do with homemaking (whatever that means) I most likely struggle with. So this rhubarb pie was a victory for me.



Happy September! It is strange how quickly time has gone since Roland arrived.
