What a fun theme. I have tons of pictures of playing in the backyard. It's one of our favorite evening hangouts! Some are old...I decided to go way back and get some of my favorites. Some are recent that I couldn't resist. Enjoy and have a super week!

My husband and I had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding, just the two of us. It was a beautiful wedding and I enjoyed seeing all of our friends. It was so nice to have a weekend with my hubby, and close friends and I am so blessed to have great parents to babysit.
We finally broke down and had a family portrait sessions. The pictures turned out so good, it made we wonder why I kept putting it off! I am fairly good about getting the boys portraits done, but we never had a formal family session. I'll post those pics soon. I am so thrilled with how cute they turned out!
My hubby had the opportunity to have a "guys" weekend last weekend. They camped, fished, shot targets, and did many other 'manly' things I'm sure I don't need to know about. This gave me an opportunity to have a "Mommy & Boys" weekend at home. As they get older this is much easier and we always have a super time. I try to incorporate special activites to make our weekend memorable. We went to Toys R Us, visited friends, stayed up "late" (9:30 is late for them) and had a movie night * Monsters Inc. was so cute, and ate out a lot!
My parents are moving this week and we helped them this past weekend packing. This is a sensitive subject for me. I'm happy for them. It's a bigger, new house and I know they will love it. They had a small older, but updated home. I am happy for them because they are so excited & it's really nice, but I must say, seeing my childhood home become empty and knowing I can't go back is a little (a lot), bitter sweet. This may be a blog post in itself later.
Last night was "Meet the Teacher Night" for Nick. How is he in first grade already?!?!?!? I just can't believe it! He has grown up right before my eyes. I am enjoying every minute of it, but as I see him out grow "fads" he once enjoyed, I wonder where the years have gone. I really like his new teacher. She is very kind, dynamic, and the ideas/ goals for the upcoming school year are fantastic. I think first grade will be a great experience for Nick and us!
Well, that's a lot! See we've been busy and the months not over. Next Monday is the first day of school, next week I leave on a girls only vacation, and I can't wait to be a better blogger and share all of the fun!
I've had a very, very busy month but I'm trying to get back on track with blogging. Here's a quick start. The boys and I were sitting ont he deck enjoying a warm evening and playing with the camera!

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in while, I've been super busy! I work as an administrator for a school district and this is a SUPER DUPER busy time for me as we prepare to begin a new school year. In addition, I am getting my own son Nick ready for 1 st grade (gasp, tears, disbelief!) and getting the kids and myself on a new schedule since our summer routine has come to an end. I am still reading everyone's blog, though I don't always have a chance to comment, I'm enjoying what I see. I will probably be extending my blogging break through this week yet. Please stay tuned. I have made some wonderful blog friends and my followers are great so don't stop reading and visiting!
Life With the Boys will be back in full swing real soon!
