Find Good In Every Day

One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

Final Summer Days September 10, 2014

As the summer winded down, we still managed to get our fun in before school started (or really got under way at least!)  We all had a family trip down to the Mid-Atlantic to visit friends, family and attend a wedding.  It was great to take a whole week off and spend quality time together.  Not only did we get to see Nana and Papa for a few days, but we also visited old friends in the Baltimore/DC area.

Always good to see the Hucks. We sure miss living close to them!

And more fun with the Kolegos!

While we love going back to Maryland and Virginia, it’s always hard to figure out who we’re going to try to see.  There is never enough time to see everyone, and there are a few families we wish we could see more.  So for anyone reading this thinking, “Why didn’t they come see us?” I apologize.  Hopefully on the next trip!

After the Maryland leg of the trip, we headed down to Charlottesville to get in some fun Pease time.  Between the pool, hiking, playing with Smudge, and watching American Ninja Warrior, there were plenty of memories made.

Mason and Cooper were showing us how good they would be with a dog.  The debate continues...

Rhys loves playing "dog" just like Smudge!

The end of the week didn’t mean the end of family time, though.  It meant time for McKenzie and Scott’s wedding!  So up to Shepherdstown we went.  It was wonderful to be with our extended family, and we were so excited to welcome McKenzie into the family.

These boys had enough Shirley Temples to last awhile.

Looking good for the ceremony - all smiles!

Such fun to dress up and go out as a family!  And it was a beautiful wedding on a beautiful night!

Some had fun (Mason danced the night away) and some got a bit bored...

Besides the wedding, we celebrated Meema’s birthday, picked yummy peaches and just hung out together.  I was so grateful for the extended time together, no matter how exhausted we were after a week of travel.  Jeremy and I headed home to Rhode Island that Sunday and left the kids there for Camp Meema, which was followed by Camp Pease, which was followed by Camp PapaNana.  They were gone for 2 weeks!  You already saw what Jeremy and I accomplished while they were gone.  We also managed to eat out at a few of our favorite restaurants and try out new ones with other couples.  By the end of the two weeks, though, we were ready to be reunited with Mason and Cooper and to finish up the final days of summer.
