|Gavin and Ashlynne on their first day of 2nd & 5th grade|
August 20, 2013
The first week of July we shipped the older 2 off to spend a week in Lincoln, NE with my great aunt. They always love the time they get to spend with Aunt Lois and always come back incredibly spoiled. They got to go to movies, shopping, Chuck E. Cheese, and the Children's Museum (twice).

The end of July/ beginning of August brought fair week to Abilene, which is always a fun time for the kids. The week starts off with the parade, and the carnival lasts all week. We went and watched cousins show their goats and sheep, and went to the Demo Derby. Breckyn got to ride her first carnival ride, and Ashlynne walked away from the games with a HUGE stuffed dog. But the icing on the cake that week was that Lex was in town. Ashlynne and her have a special bond, so she was very excited to see her. Breckyn hasn't seen her since she was a baby, but we talk about her so much, that Breckyn went right to her and didn't skip a beat... Not that Breckyn is shy with ANYONE!

When we retuned home, it was time to take Logan back to his mother, and back to reality for the rest of us...ie, school shopping! While most of you reading this know how much I love shopping, I do NOT love it with a 2 year old... Ashlynne called that shopping trip the worst one EVER!, was even in tears at one point, and instructed me to take Breckyn to the sitter next time so we can shop in peace! I think I will take her advice on that one!!! All in all, we had a great summer, full of memories that I hope my children will cherish as much as I do.
