I know I know. I haven't blogged in almost a month. But I loaded pictures and created like 5 or 6 blog posts that I am going to get out here in the next few days. There are about to be some big changes with Elle starting school and Walker starting PDO. The start of school always kicks me into overdrive and I am determined to enjoy the business of it and the looming football season this year. So it is time to get up to date! First up. A post about the end of the summer. We are still enjoying the last of our summer days!
Every Thursday night at the Country Club they have Bingo Night and it is so fun! A ton of people come. A lot of families and a ton of kids. You get there early to get a seat and then eat dinner and wait for Scott our golf pro to get out to the table and sell the cards. All the kids line up with their cash and most people by multiple cards. Every time a new person buys a card he say "Good luck to ya." There are usually 5 or 6 different types of bingo games we play and all for cash. So far our family has not had very good luck when it comes to the cards. We have only gotten close to a bingo. Elle doesn't seem to mind losing though and it really is a fun night spent with family and friends.
After a few rounds of bingo they have a ice cream break and all the kids run to get in line to pick different ice cream out of the case in the pro shop. It is so funny. They get so excited about ice cream break! Elle and Abigail with their popsicles one night!
I took this picture one day when we went up to the club for lunch. Elle and Walker might have my hair and eye color but they sure do look just like Kenny. I really notice it in this picture.
Kenny had to go to Wisconsin for training with work for an entire week in the first week of July so I asked Kenny's mom to come stay. She was such a big help and of course the kids loved having her visit. Ann took Elle to see a movie and get her nails done and kept Walker some mornings so I could run errands and I even managed to get in a girls night! So lucky she was able to come!
Breakfast with Gramma
These pictures seem random but with Walker eating real food these days Lena is loving all the dropped treats. She was hanging out one morning around Walker and I wanted to try and get some pictures of the two of them together since Lena is getting older. Lena didn't really want to cooperate but I still thought the pictures were cute anyway.
This rag tag crew!
One Saturday we got a babysitter for Walker and took Elle to the pool for a long day. One this particular day our friends Margaret and Jay joined us because it was Margaret's birthday and then our friend Jack brought two of Elle's closest friends, Audrey and Elle up there too. These girls and Elle had the absolute best time playing and swimming all day. A lot of other friends showed up and it was such a fun day. We came home a little sunburned.
This was just after Audrey and Ella arrived and Elle was already wet so they
weren't wanting to get to close for a picture.
Ice cream break!
Mollie and I rode over to Jackson for an afternoon to see Tracy and take her to a movie and dinner for a birthday. I miss my friends from Memphis so much!
One of Elle's loveys was stinky so it needed a ride in the washing machine and she stood machine-side for the washing and drying process. It was so incredibly precious.
Another night of bingo we sat with our friends and neighbors the Rackleys and it was another fun night but still no winning cards!
