lately

Well, hello September.

So far this has been the year of the never ending summer. Which, admittedly, I should not be upset about. Washington is so full of dreary and rainy days that we complain pretty consistently about no sun. With the constant, and almost unbearable, hot weather we have kept pretty busy! Hence why this blog has been so neglected.

While August was full of fun, it also had it’s downs.

We had family photos taken of our entire “little” blended family.

We went on a road trip with friends to Cape Disappointment and Pirate’s Cove and were not disappointed.

At the same time, all of us were able to check out an old abandoned military bunker which was a little spooky.

Ironically, John and I both had horribly disgusting coffees from the most adorable coffee shop.

I purchased my first ever Sand Cloud towel and fell in love. #SaveTheFishies

Together with the same friends we visited at least five different playgrounds for the kids to play at.

John’s mom asked me to be her maid of honor in her wedding.

Correspondingly, we celebrated John’s mom’s wedding and took more family photos.

Surprisingly, we finally managed to explore both the upper and lower ape caves with all three kids.

I went to my first big crystal and rock sale and fell in love with tons of stones.

Sadly, after a horrific accident, we had to rush out to the barn to put my mother’s baby horse down.

Then somehow we wound up fostering two one day old baby goats for over a week.

John and I removed our carpet and put down laminate flooring in our living room, hallway, and master bedroom.

Not to mention, painted our walls and trim.

how was your august?
