We closed out the month of July with a BANG!! The Goode family came to stay with us for 4 days and we loved every minute of it! They came in Saturday after Brooks' party and we ordered pizza and played outside until dark. Sunday, the 10 of us spent the entire day at the Aquatic Center. According to Olivia Kate, Jack Henry, and Sam Wyatt it was a HIT! We picked up burgers from Five Guys afterwards and headed home to relax. Reese was exhausted, she played her little heart out all day.
Monday, after a leisurely morning at home and a delicious breakfast made my Matt, we girls did some shopping while the boys explored Cabella's. It was actually cloudy with a nice breeze, so we decided to enjoy a late lunch on the patio at Chuy's. It was perfect! That night we went swimming at Rusty and Gayle's pool and played some wiffle ball. Needless to say, my little nuggets were beat. They fell asleep on the way home and slept the entire night. It was a perfect summer night!
Tuesday, I had to work...but the rest of the crew had a fun day. They all went to see "The Secret Life of Pets" and then enjoyed lunch at Steak n' Shake. It was a rainy and gloomy day, but it cleared up around 6:00 that evening. Matt and I made a big dinner of grilled chicken thighs, squash/zucchini and onions, a big pan of sweet green beans, and French bread for everyone that evening. After we finished dinner, we headed to the neighborhood pool for a little night swimming. It was the perfect end to our awesome time together!!
After the movies, with their Max and Gidget animals :))
Big man was beyond exhausted!
We are so thankful for such a fun time with our amazing family. I know Matt and Emily enjoyed getting to just spend time together. We hope that this will become an annual thing and this crew will come back to see us next summer!! We LOVE those Goodes!!!
