Summer is winding to a close. . .

This was one HOT summer. Seriously. We had to buy a new air conditioner and while I was not happy to fork over thousands of dollars to Sears, it ended up being totally worth it. The humidity is so bad that when our leather couch is pressed up against the ottoman it actually sweats. Insanity.

We have managed to beat the heat by mostly staying indoors which my kids are not too happy about. We have gone to some really fun places recently though. (The Dinosaur Park in Laguna Hills, Pioneer Park in Tustin, and Scooter's Jungle Bounce House were big hits!)

Archer and Carter are happy, healthy, and active. They love to play together and are actually very sweet to each other. I know the days of screaming fights and wrestling matches are in my future but for now, they are kind and loving. Carter exists on fruit snacks, bacon, milk, and crackers. Honestly that is about all he eats. I absolutely hate it and meal time usually always ends in tears (from both him and me!) Archer eats anything and everything you put in front of him (except applesauce for some reason). Even after he is done eating, he will chase you around the house begging for bites and sips of whatever you happen to have. Dave hates it but I love it because at least one of my kids is well fed!

I am so looking forward to fall. I want to drink hot pumpkin spice lattes, eat lots of pumpkin baked goods, make crockpot stews, wear socks, sweaters, and scarfs, and curl up on the couch with a blanket and my sweet husband.

I am quite happy for summer to end. With that being said, it wasn't all bad... here are some highlights from the past few weeks:

Pioneer Park in Tustin--so fun!

This kid loves to eat... all day.
