Summer Trip in July and the month of August of 2016
On our way to Virginia
Teenagers... they really slept most of the ride to VA. When they were younger they'd watch a bunch of movies and play highway games like finding letters, words etc... we heard more snoring this trip!
July 20th, 2016
Isaac was interested in seeing Duke and we set up a tour while on our way up North. Isaac's always loved watching lacrosse and basketball for Duke and roots them on. Although he thought the campus was awesome and it all looked great it wasn't for him in the future.
Embarrassing the kids... taking pictures inside the room where it's super quiet waiting on the 45 minute talk about the college...ha ha ha
Time for the walking part of the Tour...
Yes, the dogs were with us!
It was a first for our tour guide to have dogs on his tour
It was quite HOT
Weird People trying to lure us into their Van...
Cathedral was Breathtaking!
Onto the vacation...
We stopped in Fairfax Station at Grandma's for the night...enjoyed a grilled dinner, wine and playing some ping pong.
Maryland here we come...
July 22nd-July 26thThe next morning we were off to Maryland to stay with Granny and Grampy for a few days!
Growing like Weeds!
One of our favorite places to take a walk when we visit them. Grampy had to work, but we had some fun anyway. The smell was not fun. The heat was a bit much for us to stay too long. Isaac was playing "Pokemon Go" so he was thrilled!
They are growing up too fast!
Sliding and Goofy Time...Grampy should be here for this business!
Kids were about to race down the slide...
Isaac burned his butt
Not the most comfortable 'slide'

As for the rest of the month of August it went by in a flash. School begins and things just start back into routine which we love. Girls lax started up and that means Coach Scott and Chloe are very busy. Boys lax starts up in September and we'll be on the sidelines soon enough rooting on the kids. Then it'll be back to a bunch of lax pictures! ha ha ha
