Cousins....my kids best friends! They adore their cousins SO much! So, I hosted "cousin camp" at my house! I made matching shirts. We played flag football, ate smores, wrapped houses, made a huge pallet, and snowcones for breakfast! It was so memorable and a highlight for our summer!

We jumped on a plane and headed to the Virgin Islands! Scott's sister, Macy lives in St. Thomas. So, we went to visit Macy, Drew and cousin Kinsley! It was the trip of a lifetime. We didn't bring any technology on the plane, not necessarily intentional, we just didn't think about it since the kids rarely play on technology. Well, it was a straight flight and they did lots of seat switching and playing I-spy! Haha! Maybe they are learning a lesson of boredom and self entertainment rather than gluing their face to a screen? Maybe?? Even though that is not a planned out parenting technique of ours, it seems to be a reoccurring lesson that they are learning, which I am okay with! Regardless, we landed and all eager to start our vacation! We went straight to the beach! Swam, ran, rock climbed and had dinner on the beach! Amazing start to the week!

July 16th is the day that I celebrate the two most gentle hearted boys in my world! Happy 12 year anniversary to Scott, and Happy 5th Birthday to Trent. There is no other way I would want to spend my anniversary than to celebrate our sweet Trent. God made him extra special. He is so tender, thoughtful, giving, funny, athletic, FUN and so much more!
Trent wanted a "silly string, water, monster truck party!" SO, I got 75 cans of silly string, 600 water balloons, water slide, sprinklers, pool and Monster Jam decorations! Instead of cupcakes, Trent wanted candles in a snocone. So, I ordered snocones from his favorite "Bahama Bucks." Cousin Ally scooped up all the snocones and we sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
