Parades, Fireworks, & Elephants!

Wow this month has been a whirlwind of fun!  We have spent so much time playing and being outside and visiting with friends; it’s just been awesome.  I finally emptied my camera (because it was full of course lol) so I want to share with you just a few things we did this month.
Our first biggie was the 4th of July.  Last year I was a bucket of hormones….and guess what, this year I was again.  haha Poor husband!  Last year we were experiencing the first 4th of July with Dutch, and this year was kind of the same since being a month old last year he didn’t remember a thing.  Watching him watch a parade had this mama bear in tears.  He had so much fun and I couldn’t help but smile as I watched him.  Next year we will get to bring another new baby with us to the celebrations :-)DSC_0119DSC_0126

So peaceful and fun with our Texas family.
Cows, good food, great music, fireworks, & water sprinklers! 
It doesn’t get much better than that!DSC_0207DSC_0200DSC_0211DSC_0214DSC_0215DSC_0223We also had the opportunity to go to the circus this month.  It was phenomenal folks!  I have not been in years…..probably decades if I’m being completely honest.  This was something else that I was just so excited to see Dutch’s reaction to.  We were in a box and let me tell you, that is the *only* way to go to the circus with a 13 month old kiddo.  We had our own food & bathroom (great for the preggos!), special parking, but most importantly, there was space for Dutch to run around.  We are SOOOOO blessed to have been given this opportunity; something we will never forget!  When we were walking in, the Mr. informed me that this was his first time to the circus too.  I’m pretty sure my jaw hit the ground!  It was so fun watching my boys watch the circus for the first time.  Their eyes were as big as the elephants!  Dutch kept calling all of the animals “roo roo” as this is what he calls Rooney.  No baby boy, our dog is no where near good enough to be in the circus ;-)
These are not great picture because they were with my phone, but you get the idea.DSC_027010358183_855865901116704_769185782_n10665606_1001023753241616_1793142296_n11379741_835505703194245_827690251_n11420921_127912467545260_1608341954_nFor days after the circus, it was all we talked about.  Dutch loved playing with all of his treats from the circus, and talking about the “roo roo’s” so of course we incorporated it into art time.  11327100_738070332989213_1462580022_n11363902_780019798780287_154587168_nWhat a great month!
Now, August, you've got a lot to live up to; we're looking forward to what you have in store for us!
