Hello mountains...here we come!

Summer has happened since the last time I posted, and man is it glorious!!

No more driving Mason 30 minutes each way to school.
No more out of the house at the crack of dawn.

Instead, there is lots of staying in our pajamas until 11am, running in the sprinkler, popsicles, growing our garden, and playing. It.is.fabulous!

This weekend, we are off to a family reunion in the mountains! We have kind of been hermits the last week so it will be nice to get out in the mountain air, visit with family, and just be. The amount of stuff I have packed for our family of 7 is completely ridiculous, and I am not even done.

The reunion is 40+ miles from where we live, and my never dull husband decided it would be fun to bike up there. I chickened out but Daphy decided to join and Matt is pulling Mason and Jack in the bike trailer.

The kids were super excited this morning to head out! 
All 5 of my kids!!

So proud of Daffy Duck! 10 years old and taking on a 42 mile bike ride!

Will wanted to be strong like Daph. :) 

The big boys all ready to go in the trailer!

And off they rode!!

I have about a hundred more things to pack and then will be heading out this afternoon and will meet them up there! 

I am looking forward to a great weekend with my family, immediate and extended.

I am speechless! I cannot imagine conquering a mountainous bike ride, let alone 42 miles, and towing children behind!!! What a strong, courageous husband you have! Have an amazing time, and I will look fowl toward to our Coffee Tree date next week. The place is amazing! I can't wait to show you!
