Summer Adventures Part 2

After being down in Bayou country we came back to Vegas for a few weeks and then headed up to Utah for Ben's brother Aaron's wedding. We had so much fun seeing everybody especially Lauren, Travis and the boys. It had been way too long since the last time we saw them. Weston was in heaven with his cousins.

After the wedding in Logan I braved it and drove to Reno without Ben. (He flew back to Vegas). I use the term "brave" very loosely. Lauren actually drove the whole way while I entertained the boys, so it was really very easy. If I had to do it by myself, I would be saying something else completely!

I stayed in Reno for a week; Ben flew to Reno for the Wedding reception, and then we drove back to Vegas together. Ben's mom did a beautiful job with the reception. I know she had some stressful times, but it all came together perfectly. We had so much fun with Ben's family!! Thank you for the memories!

We had so much fun this summer with both of our families. We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives.
Summer is over but are our adventures? Not quite! We are still going to Hawaii at the end of the month and Disneyland in October. So excited!

Summer Adventures Part 1

I'm so far behind in blogging!! I'm so impressed with the people that are able to take care of their kids, clean their house, work out, blog, and do everything else that life throws at them. It amazes me because I feel like there are so many of you that are able to do it. I obviously am not able to do it all, but I am trying.
So here is a quick summary of our summer adventures!

In July we went down to my home of Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I was able to spend time with my family and friends. I love Louisiana and look forward to this trip every year. This year I was able to go with my sister and her kids to the Global Wildlife Center, just outside of Hammond. It was so fun and Weston had a blast feeding the animals, especially the giraffes.

We were able to spend some time in Baton Rouge at Grandmommy and Paw Paw's house.

After spending time in Baton Rouge, we headed down to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a week. I love the south!!!
