July fun!

We are loving summer and I can't believe it is mid-July already!  Our days are filled with fun with friends and evenings at soccer practice.  Mesh and I just celebrated our 13 year wedding anniversary but we forgot to get a picture...we had no clue when we were a couple of 25 year-olds just how different life would be at 38! We are thankful for all of our blessings.

 We had Nate's soccer team over for a party but I wasn't able to round up the 10 and 11 year-old boys for a group picture...so this is what I have.

Big Soccer Weekend!

The kids had an amazing time at their soccer club's home tournament this weekend.  All three teams played great and Riley's and Ben's teams came home with the first place medals!  Ben's final game ended in a tie that came down to penalty kicks-so exciting!

Friday night we had a pasta party for Riley's team.

 As if the weekend wasn't exciting enough, Riley and I went to the Charlie Puth/Shawn Mendez concert that night with Court and Olivia. What a weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

We had a great 4th of July with friends we have known since Nate was 4 months old.  We watched the Issaquah parade and then had fun on the lake! Happy birthday America!

Noni left just before Independence day so Ben set up a party on her last day. Just like his parties at school, it included different stations to rotate through.  Noni dominated tug-of-war and the dance station. Bruno and I spent a lot of time in the relaxation station. :)

June Memories

June was pretty busy with many moments covered in the earlier blog posts this month...here are some of the other memories we wanted to share!

Benny finished up his baseball season - what a fun bunch of boys!

Riley starred as Cha Cha in her school's production of Grease.
Nate's first soccer tournament of the season!
