Picking Back Up

I hate when I am unable to make time for the blog, because there is so much that passes through my brain each day that I think would make worthy blog topics. But, for lack of creativity at a late hour...we'll do a simple quick re-cap of what's happened in the last couple of weeks.

Just days after our night on the town to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live, we packed up and headed south to Amelia Island. The weather was beautiful, and I'm planning a post dedicated to our trip later this week.

Upon return from our fabulous fall vacation, we jumped head first into the madness that was the week of Judgment House at church. Spending hours each afternoon and evening at the church was rough on the kiddos and mom and dad too! We were thankful for some reinforcements when grandparents arrived Friday to help keep Jack and Sam distracted.

Looks like fun, huh?
In addition, mid-week a little surprise was assembled in the backyard. Despite the hectic schedules and less than ideal weather we managed to arrange a lunchtime reveal last Friday. Jack was uber excited and keep saying, "I like this!" except for when Josh had him climb up to try the monkey bars, "I don't like this yet," he explained as he climbed back down.

We've managed to squeeze in some park time with our friends and celebrated some recent and upcoming birthdays too! A busy couple of weeks, but thankful for the blessings of a bit of fun, relaxation, service, friendship and most of all FALL!

Monkey bars, swings & slides....OH FUN!
I'm in the same bloggin' boat as you. I keep seeing new posts by friends and just haven't had the time to read or comment and play catch up, much less blog about our own life!
