Lake Normandy

We headed to Lake Normandy with the Sklenkas and it was a BLAST!  
The weather was perfect.  
Not too hot, not cold at all.  The water temp was warm.  It was awesome.

On the way home we had to stop for Sonic Slushes {of course}!
Can't wait to go back again!

Week #29 {2017}

Sunday we had this baby deer in our front yard.  It's so fun seeing these all the time!
Then we took this guy to get his rabies shot. {Bombi, not Rylan. Haha!}
Can I tell you how awesome family car rides with the extra row in the back?  NO ONE IS TOUCHING ANYONE! {And all the mama's said amen!}
Bombi was surprisingly well behaved!
When we got back, we headed out for a family bike ride.
Monday was a pool day.
And we went to the library.  Dylan loves the books, Rylan loves the kid computers.
Where the littles put on a puppet show for me.  The cow and shark were singing Blue by Keith Urban.  It was hilarious!
Tueday we went to Mount Pleasant, TN.
And then had t-ball and softball games.
One of Rylan's coaches brought his collection of baseball cards and let the kids pick a couple to take home. Isn't that just the sweetest?
Wednesday we were back at the pool and I LOVE that all my kids are old enough so I can sit and read a book.
Thursday we went to Above All.
On the way home, Payton {who NEVER sleeps in the car} fell asleep!
Then if we weren't tired enough, we had games again that night!
There was another stunning sunset.
Friday morning, we watched a turkey family eat their way across the yard.
Then we went to the creek.
Bombi loves giving luva-luvas.
Then it was Family movie night!
Saturday was yard work day.  We mowed and edged for 3+ hours {and still aren't done!}.  I picked the first pear from the pear tree.
And after we all got showered and cleaned up, we piled in the car,
and headed to Downtown Franklin,
to eat dinner at the Mellow Mushroom.
It was yummy as usual!
Downtown was also having Bluegrass on the Harpeth Jamboree so we walked around there for a short bit.
I love how sweet Dylan can be with Rylan!
It was a perfect end to a super fun and busy week!

The Creek

As I was looking back at photos of when we went to the creek off of the Duck River at Chickasaw Trace, I realized that summer is almost over and we haven't spent a day there.  I decided rectify that and take the kids down there for a couple of hours.  Since it was at Chickasaw {where there is mountain biking}, Dylan took his bike to get in a ride.
This was his first time riding the trail all by himself!  My baby is growing up!
The creek was beautiful.
Dylan made it back {safely},
and the kids had fun playing in the creek.
Gigi met us down there and hung out for a bit.
Then Dylan wanted to go and ride the trail again!
The creek was awesome, except for the bugs. Yuck.
Dylan shaved 2 minutes off his time from his last ride!
think he is addicted. {Just like his daddy!}
