Back to School
Oh Yes, all good things do come to an end. School started back up for the Boys and it was about time, as Cayden had one of his self proclaimed "most boring days ever" last week~ give me a break! =) These kids have had nothing but straight entertainment all summer long and a couple of down hours equate to the "most boring day ever"! Now that School is back in~ we hope Cayden will be more fully entertained. He is excited and eager to go back, but Brenner on the other hand would take the rest of his life off if it were an option as he is truly a summer lover!
Off to class boys~ The Bell has rung!

~The Final Week of Freedom~
We tried to fill the last week with great stuff and had lots of fun at Stone Mountain, Zoo Atlanta and of course the kids favorite summer spot~ the Pool.

On top of "The Rock".
(Notice Atlanta in the background)Wild Animals at the Zoo
Every thing is "Pink" with Mia lately, and she was crazy over the Pink Flamingos.
Zoo Atlanta is one of the few in the U.S. to have Giant Panda Bears, and even more unique with a new panda baby born this year. Pandas are very cool up close, and are such beautiful animals! I think we have all officially changed our favorite Bear from Polar to Panda, except Mia, she will stick with the Pooh Bear.
Rock Climbing
Whatever Brenner is doing?!?
And one last Jump in the Pool brings with it the end of a great Summer!

Once upon a time...
Three little girls happened upon some Dress-Up Clothes, and just look what happened!

Other than Halloween, this is Mia's first real encounter with "Dress-Up". I guess with two older brothers, she just has not been exposed to such activities. Notice her eniexpierience with her gown over her purple shirt =), but she did get the pink BLING on her finger to make herself runway ready! Well needless to say, she loves Dress-Up and danced the rest of the night as whoever she thought she was. I guess we need to start collecting some Dress-up items, Yikes!!! Boys are so much easier! I do have to admit that it was very cute to see her dancing with such excitment.

The following picture is included because she is so darn cute but also to make Aunt Tara so very jelous of Mia's footware. Although you can barely see them, YOU know what they are... Bring back any memories? Well, We all know that you still have some just like them in your closet and it is ok if you feel the need to go put them on! =)

Proud to live in the U.S.A!

~ Happy 4th of July ~

BBQ, Homemade Ice Cream, Fire Works, and Red, White and Blue... Sounds like Independence to me!

Mia and some Black Olives- this trick never seems to get old! =)

We also spent some time this weekend doing something with our bathroom on the main floor as it has needed some help for over two years now. We never did like that it was a full bath with the tub that has never been used, so we finally covered it up and now it seems more like the 1/2 bath that we would have rather had all along~ good-bye awkward tub!
