I haven't had a chance to blog in a couple of days. We've been up late and going, going, going. I'm leaving tomorrow to fly to Atlanta to visit my best friend. We talk 2-3 times a day but haven't seen each other in 2 years! It's crazy! I'm just glad that I get to see her finally. I hate leaving Lance and the kids, but I'm looking forward to giving her a hug in person!
We've had a good week this week. Tuesday, we went down to Lance's parents house to have swim and do fireworks with the family. The kids had so much fun and I'm so glad we went. Lance had to unload some cinder blocks off a trailer down in the field, so Hope and I went to help. She was so adorable. I let her sit in my lap and "drive" the Tahoe. She was in hog heaven! She says the funniest things. The other day, Luke said something about cracking his "nuts" and I know what you're thinking, but he meant knuckles! I laughed so hard. But it has stuck and while we were driving, Hope grabbed my hand and pulled my fingers. Then she laughed and said, "I crack your nuts, Momma!" She loved "helping" Lance and I and kept saying, "I a big helper."
Yesterday, I broke out the waterslide for the first time. We haven't had time to get it out yet this summer because of how busy we've been with swimming lessons, VBS, and the family reunion. So it came out yesterday and the kids have been on it constantly! This is our 3rd summer to have it and the kids LOVE it. Here are some pics of the fun!
