The last bit of summer fun...

I finally downloaded the last few weeks of summer pictures.

Taegan got a new swimming pool for her birthday that we finally blew up for her. I think she got to play in it once before all of the rain came. I know we really needed the rain, but it sure is good to see the sunshine again!

We also went to the water park in Canton for the first time. Taegan's favorite part was the lazy river where there wasn't much splashing going on. She also like the outer edges of the kiddy'll never guess why....well, maybe you splashing there either! We went with some friends from church and had a great time!

Our summer has been filled with lots of fun and memories!

Fun at the Beach

My parents rent a beach in Galveston for a week every summer for the family. We went last week and had a GREAT time! THANKS Mom and Dad!! We look forward to the beach house every summer. It is fun to be with everyone and watch the kids play together.

Fun at Mom and Pops

We had a great visit with my mom and dad. We swam, shopped and did lots of playing! They have a lot of caterpillars in their backyard that feed on their plants and later turn into butterflies. Taegan enjoyed checking on the caterpillars everyday! If you look very closely she is pointing at one of the many caterpillars.

Taegan also has a very special friend she likes to visit with when we go to visit. She LOVES my niece's boyfriend Jacob! She talks about him often at home and always wants to see him when we visit.

Home Sweet Home

Taegan and I have had a wonderful 2 1/2 weeks of vacation while Chad worked. We spent 1 1/2 weeks at Mom and Pop's house (my parents) and then spent a week at the beach with my parents, sisters and nieces and nephews. We had a GREAT time! It is always hard to head back home and get back to normal life, but we had a couple of things to look forward to when we got home. The first was Chad/Daddy I don't think we have ever been apart for that long (since we've been married)...I know Taegan hasn't. She kept him in very close range when we got home. The second was a new bathroom! We have needed to remodel our bathroom since we moved in 6 years ago and now it is finally done. The best part was that we were gone during the whole remodel. It looks GREAT! Sometimes I just go stand and look at it. From what I hear the house got pretty dirty during the remodel process, but my wonderful husband had it cleaned for me before I got home! Here are pictures of our new bathroom. I will post vacation pictures in a separate post.
