Just wanted to document a few sweet moments with my girls (and others) from this week.

Just thought I'd quickly post Lilly's latest soccer and dance picture. She just had her last soccer game yesterday and loved it. Her best little friend Sydnee's dad was the coach which made it even more fun!

We had kind of a crazy thing happen this week so I wanted to document it. Let me just preface this by saying that I am not trying to brag and that we are not rich by any stretch of the imagination. On Friday Doug called me to see if I'd done anything to our mutual fund account. I assured him that I didn't even know to access the account so I was pretty sure that I hadn't. He said that it was empty and so he was a little concerned about it. He saw the money come out the day that some was supposed to go in so he thought they had made a mistake somehow and accidentally took the money out. We checked our bank account and didn't see the money in there either. He called the company and found out that they sent us a letter in June saying that if accounts were below a certain amount then they were going to close them and issue checks to everyone. The minimum balance was really not very high and we didn't have much in there to begin with so apparently our account qualified for that. We hadn't seen the letter because I usually throw things from them away because it's usually something like a privacy notice or notice of a board member change or something so I don't bother to open them. Anyway, this week we kind of forgot to take our garbage out (did I really take a pic of our garbage?!) and I had cleaned out one of our sheds so it was seriously overflowing and looked like this (and I raked up our acorns yesterday so it's even worse than this now).

We are so excited that fall has arrived. We're loving the cooler temperatures and the yummy treats fall brings like caramel apples! We made these for FHE this week and the girls enjoyed them.

Doug and I were lucky enough to take a trip (sans kids!) last weekend to the Carolina's to visit some family. It was the first time we'd been on a plane together in about 8 years!
Carowinds. It was so fun! Doug wasn't feeling super hot that day so he actually stayed home in bed. I felt bad and probably should have stayed with him but I couldn't keep myself away from the roller coasters! I rode "The Intimidator" with my brother Derik and it was awesome! It's the biggest roller coaster in the southeast. "After Burn" was pretty sweet too. They were so nice to hang out with me that day and it really was so fun!
Overall we had such a great trip and felt totally spoiled by everyone (like my sister-in-law who cooked us an amazing 5 course meal at 11 pm since our plane was delayed - she's awesome and it was delicious!). There truly is such a thing as southern hospitality and we definitely experienced it! It's definitely hard to be back in reality and I'm hoping the adjustment to "normal" life goes quickly! Thank you everyone for an amazing trip!
