On Shay’s blogging calendar “blog recap of JW Marriott with the Slaughters“.
On Shay’s phone…three pictures from the four nights they were there.
Now, on Shay’s actual blog…three pics and no good excuse for a lame post other than she was having too much fun to stop and get her phone out.
Friends, it’s the first week of school! We don’t actually start this year until Thursday. It’s a weird end-of-the-week start date, but I’m kind of diggin’ it. We’ll get two full days in and then have the weekend to recover from it all. All of our “fall” things start today though! Our new sports schedules, our new speech schedule, and so on begins NOW, so even though we’re technically still in summer, we’re already back in fall mode.
This last week, we drove down to San Antonio for our annual stay at the JW Marriott with the Slaughters on Tuesday afternoon (we arrived around 6:30 that night) and stayed until Saturday morning (we drove back suuuuuper early to be home in time for Kensington’s volleyball tournament and Narci’s 40th birthday party!). It was three full days of playing with the kiddos, sleeping in a little bit and eating some really yummy food. We look forward to this trip every year! This year though, I failed in the picture department. I didn’t even get a single pic of any Slaughter! #sigh Here are the three pics I have…
After a fun day by the pool (from like 10 to 6), we ate dinner and then let the kids run around outside with the other families and eat s’mores by the campfire. I looooooooove these summer days with my family!!
Did someone say s’mores?! Madeley was all about roasting her own marshmallows!
And a random selfie to finish us off 🙂 . I’ve had the best summer with my family! Even though I love fall so much, I always miss this togetherness we get over the summer.
Alrighty roo! I’m off for today!! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow. One quick thing before I go though…
…I have my Meal Planning Monday Back to School Week edition up today!
