Wow - where did the time go? It seems like summer just started and now here we are, back from vacations, back to school and getting ready for fall. It went by way too fast but it was great while it lasted.
Mimi & Dude came to visit us for a week. While they were here we went to the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in Cheyenne, Wyoming - we also spent a few days in Cody, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. We had a great time...we had wonderful weather and saw lots of animals in the part. Deer, elk, brown and black bears along with some cubs, antelope, chipmunks and lots of bison are just some of the sights that we saw. Of course, there was no better way to end the trip than the adventure across the Beartooth Pass (entertaining, to say the least!). After their week in the Northwest was up, Mimi & Dude were brave and took both of the kids back to Florida with them to spend a few weeks catching up with the rest of the family. Aside from missing Mama & Daddy, they had a blast and definitely packed some fun into three weeks. They did everything from a day at Wild Waters, a day of fishing and scalloping in the Gulf, a few days spent at the river with Aunt Lacy's family and Grandma Susie, a few days of fun and spoiling at Aunt Lucy's, a day at the beach and several trips to the movies. They can't wait to go back and see everbody again!
So, now that vacation is over it's time to get back to reality. Jake started back to school this week. We officially have a 2nd grader...oh my, that's hard to believe! He has a new teacher, Ms. Stephenson, and so far, so good.
Well that's about all for now. Until next time - we send love to our friends and family across the miles...We miss you all and can't wait until we can see you all again.
