Wrapping Up August

1 Sep

We were very busy trying to fit in as many activities and play dates as we could before school started.  So instead of doing lots of posts I decided to just wrap August up all in one.  Yes my posting often days are slowing down.  I plan to continue to always post photos but not necessarily write about everything.

So here goes August…..


Sydney was in a soccer class through the city. She was so darn cute and enjoyed playing.


Colin started tennis lessons and his first lesson was a private lesson. We have since had a join another class because no one else signed up for that day and time. He has always loved playing tennis in the driveway and cul de sac and so it has been nice to show him that you do need to hit it over a net.


My parents came out to help me while Brandon went to a wedding in Iowa. It was great to have them here!


We went to our favorite parade in downtown….. the pooch parade.


We also went to the aquarium in Monterey.


We have made it to music in the park almost every Friday night this month.


I put my parents to work. ;) My mom was just going to cut out the dead pieces and before we knew it we were taking off everything. It makes our view even better!


I found this battery powered jeep online for free and it needed a little TLC and so my dad and I painted it and it looks good as new. The kids are having a blast with it!


Then Grammy and Grandpa came out to watch the kids while Brandon and I went to Tahoe with his work.


They went to the lake by our house.


Went to an aquarium on the Pier.


They made donuts with Grammy.


Played at the park.


Colin got in a round of bowling which was on his list of things to do before school started.


We got in some Bocce Ball and dinner.


Then the ladies grew hair on their chests after downing a round of this.


This was the small crew that went rafting on the trip in South Lake Tahoe. We also played a round of golf, went to the movies, had some amazing dinners, relaxed by the pool, and ended with a massage. Some business trip, huh?!


When we hear the coast has great weather we pack up and head out. We went to Half Moon Bay and enjoyed exploring by the water.


Hermit crabs and snails were the big hit. I was glad to be in charge of the camera at this point. ;)


Oops! Someone got caught off guard.


We also stopped at Lemos Farm and did a pony, hay, and train ride.

A fun August it was!!!!
