What we're up to...

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end! We are enjoying the rainy weather, cooler temperatures, and the idea of school starting in a couple of weeks. Here are just a few of the things that I'm doing lately. A list of August faves if you will...



I'm probably WAY late on this one, but I found this website the other day and really love it! It's a great way to organize your family calendar, lists, photos, etc. I think it's great for my little family, but would be even better for those of you with older kids with more activities. I'm buying stock...check it out.



These pedipeds are the only shoes that fit SK's little feet. Diva. Seriously, they are so cute and look super comfortable! Since she hasn't really worn shoes at all yet, I was shocked to find out that her feet are really short, but fat on the top, and that they are super hard to fit into shoes. Ergo, the pedipeds. More of an investment than I wanted to make, but cute nonetheless.



Sarah Kate is obsessed with books, and this one is her favorite. She loves to sit and look through books and talk like she's reading. She even wants to go to bed with one. If she this particular book, she starts saying, "boo...boo!" wanting us to read it. She automatically begins laughing when you turn to the last page, which is one of my very favorite things she is doing right now.


Collin and I LOVE watching this movie. We only watch it in about 20 minute increments, but it's still great.



Facebook...what? I don't really get it, but I'm trying.

And for the grand finale...our summer vacation! We had a blast in the Ozarks and would highly recommend the Lodge at Mount Magazine to anyone who's looking for a close-to-home mountain vacation. We stayed in a three bedroom cabin with Angie and Jason and my parents. It was beautiful! Brand new, the only thing on the mountain, smack dab in the middle of the woods, hot tub, big porch- and relatively inexpensive. We loved it. Even though it rained the first two days we were there, we were able to get the boys out quite a bit! Check out the pictures.

Laura,
I love pedipeds! Emily's foot is fatter than Lila's was so she hasn't gotten to share all her big sister's shoe collection... I was a bit obsessed with shoes with Lila. I have also found stride rite to be a great fit for the high maintence foot diva...and they are having a good sale right now! : )

I'm feeling your pain on the Pedipeds! Luke has short, fat feet too so I guess he will only have one pair of shoes. :-)

Clare used to have the same problem with shoes. Her feet looked like little loaves of bread...rising out of her shoes.

Very cute pics! My kids loved that belly button book, too.

We love the Belly Button book as well as Charlotte's Web. I also can't wait to figure out a time to get to Arkansas with Clint and the girls! It looks amazing!
