September Adventures

September was a busy month that went really fast.

Evan started Soccer. It was his first time playing and he did really well. We are very proud of him and his team with how hard they played at all of their games!

 Alex and Evan started 3rd Grade! They have Mrs. Ruzzin and Mrs. Johnson this year. They are both doing well!

Our friend Brian got married on September 8th. We all went to the wedding - which was a lot of fun. I am so very happy for Brian and Kim. I met Brian and Eric on the same day (let it be known that I met Brian 4 hours before Eric) so I have known him a very long time. I have waited a long time for him to find his Happily Ever After. He was Eric's best man in our wedding so for Eric to stand up for Brian meant a lot to all of us.

Eric started a new job on September 10th at United Shore Mortgage! We are all very excited for this new beginning!!

We went to Septemberfest on the 22nd - which is one of our favorite annual activities to do in Downtown Ortonville. Alex and Evan even got to spend some time with their cousins Laken and Sailor!!

Brody turned 11 on September 26th! He has been with our family now for 9 years!!

September 28th, I had my annual scrapbooking weekend at Aunt Rosalee's with My sister in law Tappy and cousins Sandy and Julie. ALWAYS a good time!!! We have so much fun. I loved every minute of it. I wished I could have stayed all weekend, but we had the Boyer Annual Fall Party to get to. Another fun tradition that our friends Mike and Rhiannon put on every year.

Finally to end a great month, I got to meet my newest nephew Ellis on Sept 30th. My sister delivered him on September 19th, but I didn't have a chance to meet him until the end of the month due to having the sniffles and my busy weekends. He is adorable and Alex and Evan LOVED being able to hold him.

October will be another busy month full of new adventures! Can't wait!!!

Myrtle Beach 2018

I am only two months late on posting about our summer vacation - but who's counting?

August 11-19 we ventured down to Myrtle Beach for the week, but we weren't going alone this time. Rachel, Lauren, Nathan and her parents Annette and Tony were going to accompany us down as well for a week of fun in the sun!

It was a week full of boogie boarding, frolicking in the ocean, enjoying the waves, floating through the lazy river and splashing around in the pool. We managed to fit in an evening at Broadway at the Beach and played some putt putt as well. The weather was perfect and the view was spectacular.

We will return for the 8th time (4th for the kids) in the coming years. There is no denying that this is our go to spot. Here is our week in pictures. Take me back!!
