Since our last trip, I have been wanting to post about our summer. As you can probably guess, I have been spending my free time doing chores or sleeping. This baby is honestly taking every ounce of energy I have left for the day and causing me to be extremely fatigued.
So, last week, I started uploading pictures and I was able to finish loading the rest today to give you a glimpse of our summer.
We had a wonderful summer break. If you didn't see or hear from us, it was because we were pretty much gone from July 4- August 8.We took a trip to Colorado, which pictures from that trip can be seen here, went to a family reunion in West Texas, had a college friends reunion weekend in College Station and we ended our summer with a trip to Dallas to see Mimi and Papaw! It was such a wonderful summer!!!
This summer, I learned that my boys eat their watermelons very differently: Nathan, just dives in, Joseph, is very serious and concerned with each bite, and Christian, looks to see where his next bite is going to be.
This summer, I learned that my boys have some mad ninja trampoline skills and that Christian and Joseph may have a future in modeling.
This summer, I learned that Nathan looks super cute in this shirt and that my boys LOVE watching the Olympics (swimming and track were their favs)
This summer, I learned that Christian either falls ill, sleepy or becomes injured when asked to pick up his toys.
This summer, Nathan learned how to raid the pantry and I finally figured out why all our snacks were going so quickly.
This was nothing new, but my boys love to play with and in the water!
Joseph and one of his buds at VBS.
This summer, I also learned that Nathan would much rather eat off of the floor rather than eat his snacks from the bowl that I put them in.
This summer, Nathan became a student of Joseph's Frogology 101 and learned how to catch and handle frogs.
Hunting for frogs.
This summer it happened, Nathan became a MAJOR Daddy's boy!
Check out these cuties!!

One of my highlights from this summer, was meeting with our college friends in College Station for one Saturday. This group is absolutely amazing! Even though we have had these mini reunions a few times since we have graduated, I am still amazed at how we can get together after not having seen each other in months and laugh and practically pick up right where we left off. Love it!
Here, we are staging what it used to look like several nights a week at dinner (minus the kiddos!). Just the five of us laughing so hard that our sides would ache and talking about dreams and hopes for the future.
Obviously not the best picture, but me and my college roommate and best friend Kimmi outside our dorm hall! So many memories!
I am pretty sure some DIE HARD Ags would poop a communion cracker if they saw our son climbing the Century Tree. Oh well, boys gotta be boys.
We took our boys to Daddy Bush's library and Museum. I was very impressed at how well the did.
To end our summer, we took a trip to Dallas to see Mimi, Papaw, Aunt Stacey, Uncle Josh, cousin Cooper and my Grandmother. This was such a fun fun fun trip! My dad went out and bought all of Joseph's school supplies and clothes. My Grandma bought him his backpack and lunch box. Mimi took us to this awesome water park, we swam tons, watched the Olympics and ate lot of popcorn. It's our boys home away from home!
Oh, the older two got new running shoes, so as soon as we got home, they wanted to go to the track and try them out. Nathan didn't get new kicks, he just does everything his brothers do,
