How is JULY already over?!?!?!? Where did it go? I promise it was just July 4th and now it is over. Time is just flying by at record speed. Here is some of what kept us super busy and loving summer fun in July!
Happy Birthday Kevin!!!!
My uncle, Kevin, who is my mom's youngest brother celebrated his birthday July 2nd at Joe's Crab Shack! This time last year he was in UAB hospital fighting for his life. He had a massive heart attack and was in the hospital most of the summer. He now has a "machine heart" that he wears that acts as his heart. He is also on the heart transplant list. So needless to say birthdays are a big celebration for him!
FUN at the ZOO with Friends!!!!
Brylee and I enjoyed a fun day at the zoo with two of my friends and their children. Katy (Maggie and Burkleigh) and Sherry (John Tanner and Walker). Here we are all ready to ride the choo choo train!!!
THE BIG KABOOM!!!!
Wednesday, July 3rd Chelsea had a fireworks show... The Big Kaboom!!! The weather had predicted rain and it had rained off and on all day but thankfully when it came time for the show there was no rain in sight! We enjoyed meeting all our baseball buddies and friends at the fireworks show. The kids all ran around and played before the show and had a great time!
Reid and Jackson eating popcorn and watching the fireworks!
Sparkler Fun for the main show!
A new doughnut shop opened up in our town. So of course, we had to check it out on opening day. The kids and I went to get donuts. They were good, but by the time we woke up and we went the selection was slim. They sold out of donuts by 11am and I think we were there around 10:30. So we will have to go visit try some of their favorites!
We have enjoyed the pool this summer.
July has been the month of rain so
we have not been able to go and enjoy it as much but we went some.
Drive In Movie... Monsters University
We went to the drive in movie to see Monsters University for a birthday party! I had never been before so we were excited about going. It was a fun night with all our friends but I am not sure the kids watched much of the movie and I know I did not. I talked to my friends all night long. And the BUGS... OMG!!!!! I got ate up by bugs so bad and I even had on bug spray. The next few days I thought I was going to claw my legs off they itched so bad. I even woke up in the middle of the night scratching them so bad! It was awful! I ended up at my pharmacy friend begging for some medicine to get some relief. So needless to say the drive in was not all I had hoped it would be. I think we will stick to watching movies at the theater from now on!
We love us some snow snack on these warm summer days!!!!
Summer Celebrations: It was my month to host bunco and these three people helped me out so much to get everything ready for my fun night! Then they were off to celebrate Richard'great aunts 80th birthday at Lloyd's. JP also went home with Granny and Pap Pap for his "Jackson Weekend Alone". They always try and get each grandchild for a few days alone each summer!

Six Flags Fun:
Some people from our Sunday School Class went to Six Flags one Saturday! Brylee had the coupon she got at school for reading 6hr and she was eager to use it.
