Parking Lot Party!

On Tuesday nights this summer, we have been going to a local neighborhood and doing a backyard bible club. We have gone to this neighborhood for three years now, so it is super cool to continue these relationships.

Aunt Lisa's 4th of July Celebration

Last weekend we headed up to Louisville to celebrate the 4th with Mr.Pate's side of the family. This is a yearly tradition and I love that. I usually take more pictures, but this is all I got!

Delaney did a great job holding Grady.

Griffin LOVED the trampoline this time.

So glad we got some Uncle Shelly time.

Griffin had a blast playing with the kids this time. He is finally old enough to keep up.

Grady did awesome during the fireworks! I held his ears, which he wasn't a fan of. But as soon as the firework went off he was in awe of it and didn't care anymore.

After the fireworks, we dropped the boys off at Grandmas and then drove back home. It was a super late night (we got back around midnight our time), and getting up for work the next day was not fun at all, but we had a blast!

Week in Review {6/22-7/3}

So maybe it's more like two weeks in review?! Ha!

So here is what we have been up to:

Parking Lot Party (I will do a whole post on this one, but this is where we have been spending our Tuesday's)

This one is enjoying (I promise he was smiling before I took this!) buggy rides at school like a big boy!

We partnered with Jackson Grove Baptist and did VBS (whole post coming).

We had some downtime to play at home!

I went to hang out with these beautiful ladies.

We went to Easton's bday party (see previous post).

We had church. And our Redeemer Kids are the cutest there are ;-)

We went to Louisville to celebrate the 4th at Aunt Lisa's (post coming).

My boys stayed at Grandma's for two nights and got some good quality time with her and Papaw.

This one got in a swing for the first time.

Went to parking lot party again.

Transitioned out of the swaddle into a zippadee doo.

We went to the theater to see Inside Out! (Big treat bc we never go to the theater) so cute!

Played around the house ;-)

Went to Beech Bend!

Pretty full two weeks! Whew!

Beech Bend Fun!

We have Season Passes to Beech Bend once again (yay Christmas presents! Thanks Mom & Dad!), and we are finally starting to use them. We had a busy start to summer with church softball, Parking Lot party, Bible Study, and some holidays thrown in there etc. But we are determined to get there much more regularly the rest of the summer.

A few weeks ago, we randomly ended up with a free Thursday night. So, we decided to head over to Beech Bend and at least ride a few rides before they closed. I should be honest, I had seen their Facebook post that Dippin Dots were free on Thursdays in June and was determined to go! Ha! It was a perfect time to go because there was hardly anyone left there. Griffin got to ride all the kid rides with no waits. Yay!

We went to the "petting farm", which I think we should rename the "pet a billion cute goats farm". Ha.

Little man had a blast watching brother ride rides. He is a people watcher :-) #hegetsithonest

They got a new kids ride this summer- Monster Trucks! Pretty cool.

Inside the Spinning Dragons...

He was proud that he has his very own pass this year!

We decided to go back today, and Uncle D finally has his cast off and got to join us! It rained on and off all day, so we only went for a few hours after nap time. We did the amusement part today and hope to do the water stuff tomorrow.

He rode with his arms up and "relaxing" the whole time. Ha!

This ride is called Whip, and it whips you around on the two ends of the ride. After it would sling Griffin he would wipe his forehead as if to say "whew". Haha! What a ham.

Yep. My 3 year old rode the swings today. The normal adult ones. And he LOVED them and was begging to go over and over.

We had a great time! A storm rolled in and we were getting in the car literally just as buckets of water started coming down. Good timing. Hopefully we can go tomorrow for the "lazy Susan" (Griffin gets the lazy river and the lazy Susan at home mixed up, haha!).

Yay for 3 day weekends!!
