Summer Things

We’ve been soaking up summer around here, trying to squeeze every minute of fun out of it that we can. Here are some of the random things we’ve been up to.


We have had SO many pop up storms this summer! More than normal, it seems.



Shirley got to come to dinner one night. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was such ย beautiful night to sit on the porch after dinner, and we all love our Shirley!!


Jake and I had an adventure in Nashville one night. As part of his Father’s Day gift, I got him tickets to one of the Nashville Soccer Club games. So the kids stayed with Grammy and Pappy, and we went to the game. When we got there, the game got put on a lightning delay. But, they were play the Vandy baseball final game on the big screen, so we made the best of it! Finally, after and hour and half of lightning delays, we decided to go get dinner somewhere and come back, because every time we saw lightning, we knew there would be at least a 45 minute delay. So we got crepes, and then found a yummy no bake cookie dough place for dessert…where they were also playing the Vandy game-and we got to see the end when Vandy won it all!!! Woohoo!! Then we went back to the stadium. We got to see the first half of the soccer game…..and then the bottom dropped out, it started to rain, and the game got put BACK on a lightning delay. We just hung out under the cover and talked to some of Jake’s soccer kids who were also at the game. Finally, at 11:30, they called it. Even if we didn’t get to see the whole game, it was a fun night, and an adventure we’ll remember for a long time. ๐Ÿ™‚


One Saturday Lindsey and I had a very impromptu girl’s day, and Josh, Jake and the kiddos hung out at the farm and went down to the swimming hole. Then Lindsey and I met them over there with dinner food and we all grilled out and hung out around the fire. It was a great night. Sometimes impromptu hang out days are the best!


Last week I took the kiddos to the skate park. Jack has been dying to go back, and they get a free session for good report cards! So we took advantage. ๐Ÿ™‚ They had fun, as always, and Jack started learning how to do the half pipe on a skate board!


There have been lots of movie nights. Jake and the kids’ goal is to watch all the Marvel movies this summer. ๐Ÿ™‚



I got to meet my friend Robin for brunch yesterday because she was in town. We don’t get to see each other often, but we always are able to pick right back off where we left off. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you!



This girl leaves for church camp tomorrow, and we are all going to miss her!



There have been lots of summer chores….Jake and I have been working on trails at the farm for my cross country meet; LOTS ย of gardening; Jake cleaned off the roof; lots of mowing; I’ve been doing some cleaning that only gets done in the summer…just the normal. ๐Ÿ™‚


Now on to more summering….. :).
