Summer is Fun

Having had babies and toddlers, I've never really felt as though summer was that different than any other time of year.  But now that Graham has his first year of "real school" under his belt and my boys are all getting older and we're not really on a nap schedule anymore, we are all able to do so much more and have some serious fun!!  I think I'm getting a glimpse of why everyone loves summer so much ... and we've only been at it for 20 days since we spent our first 2 weeks of summer at the beach.  We've packed a lot in during the past few weeks and have tons more to go.  Here are pics of only some of the fun things we've been doing ... I didn't take pics of Vandy baseball, Summer JAM, Family night at Cheekwood, slip-n-slide, and countless days at the pool.  Looking forward to almost 2 more months of fun and definitely not missing the morning rush of getting everyone off to school.

 Movie in the Park

 Children's Picnic at Warner Nature Center

 My new found fave - Cumberland Park

 Dog sitting Tom's dog, Dixie - a HUGE break through in overcoming L&C's fear of dogs

 Out for ice cream on my birthday

 Playing in the creek at Parmer Park

 Cheering on Kevin during Muddy Buddy

 Graham got to do the mini Muddy Buddy with his pal, Jackson 

And this is what our bath tub looks like most nights :)

Weekend Getaway X 2

I took Luke and Carter down to Birmingham last weekend to visit my college roommate, Robin, and Kevin took Graham to Atlanta to visit his high school friend, Joey, and go to a Braves game.  We both had very fun and successful trips!!  It is finally getting a little easier to travel with our little munchkins ... but maybe that's just because we split them up :) 

 On the train ride at the Birmingham zoo ... Elizabeth wishes she were in the seat in front of us with all the big kids :)

Luke, Anna, and Carter

These 3 could definitely pass as triplets

 We had a lot of girlie toys to choose from :)

 Graham, Kevin, Joey, and Simeon


They hit up the Varsity ... obviously

Sea Island

We've returned from yet another great Moore family vacation in Sea Island!!  I know I've said this so many times before, but I can't get over how much I love the pace of life there ... it's just so dreamy!! Here are a bunch of pics from the trip:
