Summer is Flying By

Our summer has been pretty fast paced so far!  Gideon and I were sick the entire month of June then we were on 6 planes in 2 weeks traveling all over in July.  It's been fun to adventure with friends and family around Colorado soaking up the warm weather, outdoor activities, and community.

And now here we are in August with a lot of 1 year old birthday events happening!

It's been a good summer so far.  Tiring in a lot of ways and so fun in others as we get to do everything with Gid and see this bright season through his perspective.  

Here are a few pics of our August life...

Gideon and the doodles.  He squeals whenever they walk into a room no matter how long it's been since he's seen them.  He and Poppy are still BFF's and Grumps just oversees their playtimes

Always reading at our house! Gid is a pro at turning pages and all our hard work to not rip the pages is paying off!

Have you ever seen such a sweet face?  This is how he wakes up every nap and it's the greatest gift

Earlier in the week we spent some time at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.  They have a really well designed kid's center full of exciting exhibits-water, bubbles, blocks, and tons of other random designs

He was obsessed with the tropical fish tank

The boys crawled everywhere and I just had to not think about how dirty the floor was haha

A storm was moving in over Denver which made for a beautiful view from the Museum entrance

Auntie Linny and cousin JJ came over for dinner this week so we played outside.  JJ ate his body weight in fresh green grass

I don't have the exact pic on my phone but Linny made us all a DELICIOUS Brazilian feast to celebrate the Olympics.  We watched a few different events and devoured the pork/bean stew, homemade salsa, and these little crack cheese muffins.  No real crack, but definitely addictive!

No one in our house is going back to school but I have a strong urge this time of year to walk around the back-to-school supply sections of the store and buy a fresh, new backpack.  That means fall is around the corner and I could not be more thrilled about pumpkin season, crock pot recipes, fall hikes, and cool weather!  Enjoy the last bit of summer--we will do the same :)

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1
