It is Tanner's 9th birthday. We love this kid so much! He just keeps growing and looking more mature all the time.

Stephen's Great-Uncle Dave passed away and we went to the funeral this past weekend. It is good to be with family at these times. The boys also enjoyed some time in the hotel's swimming pool. I will have to get the picture of our family with Stephen's Great Aunt Betty to put on here as well. She is a sweet lady and we pray for peace to be with her as she mourns the lost of her husband. So grateful for the gospel and the knowledge that families can be together forever.

Back to school we go!
Vance is in 5th grade this year. That's right people! Crazy, I know. He is at the same school he's been attending since kindergarten. He knows most of the kids in his class and is excited to be in a portable this year. He was excited to find out that a couple of good friends are in his class this year.
This picture was taken at back to school night.

Well, once again it is time for Summer Vacation to end and school to begin. It is bittersweet. I think for my sanity it is best, but it will be a little sad to have the kids gone all day and be tied down to school and homework once more. Here are just some pictures I took throughout the Summer at various places.

Stephen and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary! I can't believe it has been that long. Sometimes I wish I could go back to that day and soak in the happiness and excitement all over again. I love Stephen very much and am grateful for the children we have and the lives we are trying to live, but sometimes I miss the newness of it all.
To celebrate Stephen went into work late (since he's been on swings temporarily) and we took the boys with us to Thanksgiving Pointe Gardens. They have $2 Tuesdays the month of August and lucky for us our anniversary fell on a Tuesday. We didn't realize that they moved the kid garden area to the Natural Curiosity Museum. That was a bummer, but we still enjoyed the beautiful gardens. I took plenty of pictures so I hope they are enjoyed by all who view them. :)
