My Little Cub Scout

I can't believe my little buddy is a cub scout. One of his first activities was a Boat Regatta Gala. It was the day I got home from Ohio so thankfully he and Tyler worked on it while I was gone.

Since he is now a scout we got to participate in Scout Night at the baseball field. So I brought Ryan and Taylor along for the ride.

Taylor chased down this foul ball near the end of the game and then we all went out on the field. The boys ran around playing with the frisbees and balls they won during the game while the adults set up the camping gear. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the whole outfield covered in tents. It was pretty sweet!

Now we are getting ready for bed on this last day of summer vacation. I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of 3rd grade. Tonight Amanda asked me if I was going to cry and all I could say is, "I always do."

The Buckeye State (After searching the web I now know what that means)

Look who I got to spend a whole week with.
Elise did a much better job than I could at summarizing my favorite parts.

Mostly the amazing company!

I had a great time. And, I realized, yet again, that anywhere is better if you're with people you love. I mean no offense to the state of Ohio when I say this. It was so green and beautiful, and I really didn't love coming back to the super dry heat.

Leaving Ohio was bitter-sweet, but only because these two didn't come with me. I was so excited to see their faces and hear their voices again. Next time they are coming with me. (This pic is on Father's Day. Tyler modeling the bow tie Damon made out of M&M's.)

Thank you Elise, Brady, Mylee, and Mercer for having me. It was the best.

Fishy, fishy!

Something we have been doing quite a bit lately.

I did my best to catch this fish without actually touching it. I thought I should for the picture.

This would be even sweeter if Damon was reeling in a great big fish. Maybe I'll photoshop one on there. Ellie is so helpful.
