Summer has come and gone but we made the most of it! We got the majority of our bucket list crossed off!
My parents decided it was time to downsize and have moved into town. This is a bitter sweet moment for sure. Although this wasn't the house I grew up in, it was my grandparents home and filled with many great memories. Luckily the farm will stay in the family with my cousin and her family taking it over! The kids headed back to help plant the last pumpkin patch. I've said this before but not sure who enjoys the pumpkin patch more, the kids or grandma and grandpa!
We always hit up an Iowa Cubs game and this year we were a lucky family scoring 2 free t-shirts! Carter was picked to answer a trivia question on the big screen and Case caught a t-shirt out of the t-shirt shooter! Although the Cubs lost, it was a perfect night to be at the ball park!
We spent a day and a half at Silver Dollar City. Lots of roller coaster riding, shopping, learning about the olden days!
We experienced the popular Dixie Stampede first hand! Jeremy and I were picked to participate in one of the challenges! Basically we were on a team with other couples and had to transfer buckets of water from person to person. It was really hard to run in the sand and I was laughing so hard I ended up with more water on myself than in the bucket!
We spent a lot of time at the go cart tracks. Who knew my family were fierce competitors on the racetrack? They kept scoping out the fastest cars and making claims on who could beat who!We also went to an incredible production of Moses at the Sights and Sounds Theatre, filled with live animals and amazing graphics!
We hit up many local pools as often as we could! Catchin some rays!
We were able to squeeze a quick camping trip in before heading back to school!
Case found a stick to roast his marshmallows with!
Back to school! Carter 5th, Claire 2nd, Case Pre-K
