July 27th Last Football game/Shopping with Kids/Kara's Surprise Baby Shower

I couldn't be more pleased with the our first experience with football, not only did we have a great group of talented boys that went undefeated but we had a great group of patient coaches that taught our boys a lot.

Shopping with Kids...Why?
I've drug my kids along with me on my shopping excursions since they were babies and every time I do I always ask myself why, lol! I can laugh afterwards but my parenting skills definitely get tested during.
 
I always have high hopes that Charley will stay in her stroller and that we could just run into a couple of stores and be done but this girl loves to escape from her stroller, run around, hide in clothes, pester her brother, and of course try on shoes.
 
Despite the crazy of two kids it was a successful shopping day, found exactly what I needed and more, now just have to get a successful family picture in the Bahamas in our outfits.
 
 Baby she threw done on the ground when she found the shoes (on the left) stroller she escaped from in the back.
 
 
Kara's Surprise Baby Shower
One of my BFF's Kara is having a baby a little boy in Oct. Her sweet sister Dani somehow put together a great surprise party that was a huge success! She was surrounded by people she loves and food she loves.
She was definitely surprised
 Checking all the food out, Dani had all the food she's been craving
 Kara and her sister Dani
 Kara and Tim haven't decided on a name, so getting something embroidered was not possible, so I thought it would be funny to improve...Fun Design and No Name
 Thought this paci was super cute

Julay 26th Wiped Out

A long day of swim lessons,  playing with cousins and friends, these two were worn out!
There are so many times in the car these days that are not peaceful, between fighting over toys or pestering each other its nice to see them peaceful! Love them with all my heart!

July 26th Swim Show Off

 
 I am absolutely in love with this swimming program S&A Swimming http://www.saswimming.com/, this will be Brady's 4th year to swim with them and Charley's 3rd. I am amazed every year at what they learn, including Brady being able to disrobe this year, super impressive! After two weeks of lessons parents and family are able to come and watch at the last practice. My kiddos are definitely turning into little fish!  
 
 All of Charley's X's, she even got all but 3 X's for the next level
