Last week my family and I piled up in the truck and went for a ride in the country. It's one of my favorite things to do.
It was a perfect day. Sunny + mid 70's. Ahhhh.... We put the windows down and just had a good time together.
Anyway, I put together a little video so you could take a ride with us! Enjoy :)

Ok so September went by so fast. I feel like we just started it. But we're heading into October!! YAY!! Fall weather is coming. The past few days have been hot and humid. Hopefully the days begin to get cooler. I can't wait to start wearing my boots + plaids + hoodies!

Anyway, lets get on with the post!


- a friend took us out to Chinese for lunch on a Sunday. It was SO GOOD!

- school started back up. And for the first time not for me!!

- six year old girl at church who doesn't have her two front teeth: *in sad voice* "I wish I had more teeth."

- my sister + her family came for a visit!!

- christopher (the boy i take care of): "The only Spanish word I know is salsa."

- niece: "You're Maddy pickle."
me: "Ok??"
a couple hours later
"Hello Potato."

- my nieces: "Lets get in your car and go to New Mexico in Arizoma."
And yes, they did pronounce it Arizoma! :D


- drove a lot. In the dark. In the pouring rain. In the sunshine. In the storms. You name it. I drove in it.

- celebrated Mama's birthday with cheesecake from the cheesecake factory!

- changed out my closet from spring/summer clothes to fall/winter!

- Kris and I had the house to ourselves for a couple days

Last week my sister (Katy) and her husband (Jason) and their kids (Chloe, Bella, Emma, + Levi) and Jason's brother (Elijah) came for a visit. 
They got in on Saturday afternoon and they left the next Saturday morning. It was such a good visit!! We made so many memories together and I'm just sad that it's over. It went by so fast.

But like I said, it was a great visit!! And I got TONS of pictures. Enjoy :)
