It’s life lately around here! And life has been BUSY! Busy in that fun, summer way we love so much.
So, this will always be remembered as the summer of “the cannon ball contest” in my heart. Every day at the pool, the lifeguards blow their whistle around 12:30 and thus, the cannon ball contest begins. This is a HUGE deal to my kiddos. We talk about it every day…who will win the cannon ball contest? I LOVE this age!
We were playing golf the other night after dinner and found a turtle on one fairway. Turtle spotting has become another Shull family hobby.
After golf, a we played in the sprinklers. By the time we were done, all five of us were in the pool with our clothes on…one thing leads to another and before you know it, you’ve jumped in wearing your shorts and such.
The big kids wrapped up basketball camp last week, so on their last morning, Ashby and I decided to have a little diner breakfast together while we waited for them to be finished. Love spending time with this sweet girl!
A large portion of our weekend was spent waiting on baby Samuel to arrive. Here we are taking selfies in the middle of the night. My kiddos are such troopers!
When you decide that the waiting room is just too darn bright and cold, so your family all gets in their cars and naps for a few hours. At this moment, you have to laugh at how silly life can be sometimes.
2:31 AM and you’re all sleeping in the car…
At one point during the night, I found myself walking through the parking garage with my grandmother and mom discussing how good a McDonald’s breakfast sandwich sounded. #randomness
4:00 AM has nothing on this girl!
We LOVE Monica!
I have no idea what time it is here…but this picture makes me laugh!
After a long night, we came home and slept a few hours and then…the big kids upgraded their bikes! My kiddos are bike riding fools and their smaller bikes were just too small…so, we headed to the bike shop and upgraded. I love how much they love to ride bikes!
When you’re just so tired.
Lovie had her annual July 4th party on the 3rd! We did lots of swimming!
On Monday morning, we headed down to our town square for the annual July 4th parade! This year, it rained all morning long, so the weather was cool when we got there (72 instead of our usual 96 or so!).
I love this picture. My friend Brooke took it of me and two of my favorite people, Manda and Andrea.
Brooke took these next few picture too. I just love my sweet Kensington!
The parade is such a framily affair!
So many sweet kiddos!
When you have a four year old sister.
Ashby really gets into her parades!
I’m so blessed the Lord called us to plant our roots in McKinney, TX.
She was playing My Little Ponies while I cooked dinner…such a sweet girl!
And this picture cracks me up! A very large turtle decided to lay eggs in our backyard…and as you can see, my big kids found it quite frightening. #holdme
That’s life lately! See you tomorrow for my Friday Favorites!
