Farwell Summer Vacation

Today marks the last official day of the summer vacation!  Tomorrow, mom returns to work and Ashton begins his time at Ms. Helen's.  This summer was full of lots of activities!  We were on the go-go-go constantly.  I think everyone is ready for a bit a routine!

Am I cute or what?

First we spent a lot of time at the beach.  First, we went to the beach with Kodi and Aly, then, went to the beach with our friends from church, including his best buddy Micheal, and lastly we went to the beach with Abuelita.  I think at the end, the kids were beached out!  Originally Ashton said he wasn't going to go in the water, but after the 2nd or 3rd day at the beach, he changed his tune.

Can't believe Ms. Patsy got you to take a baby snooze on the beach!

Our friend Yolanda came to visit!  Ashton really took to her, very unusual for him to attach to a grown up so quickly.  Yolanda has a very special way about her!  We took her and the kids to Great Falls in Virginia.  Both Ashton and Lily loved hiking on the rocky trails!

Great falls with Abuelita and Yolanda
Loving the trail!
We have been pseudo potty's hard to do when you are always on the go....but I think it's coming.  He still is having lots of accidents, but sometimes now he will tell us when he has to pee.  This morning upon waking up was so cute...daddy told him to go and pee, so he did.  After he peed for a long time he said, "coffee pee".  This was so funny because every morning watches daddy go potty after he has had a few cups of  coffee, of course we always remark how stinky it is...daddy proudly says, "coffee pee".

In addition to all this we have gone to carnivals with good friends, Greenbrier State Park, had sleepovers with our best buddy Michael, went to Idlewild Amusement's been a really great summer!
