Summer Summer Summer

Tim and I had the opportunity to go to the Mid-Ohio IndyCar race! So much fun to get a weekend away together! Ohio was really pretty - the wildflowers grew right up against the roads and there were farms everywhere. We drove past a lot of fields and pastures and farms, and then all of a sudden - there was the racetrack!

American Classics ;)

We've been having so many storms this summer. MAJOR storms - not just little "it's too hot today so there will be a thunderstorm in the afternoon" storms. 

This is the road that we always take to town. Going to be traveling a different way for a little bit. 

They said "2 weeks" but I'm wondering if that's like the movie Money Pit when they tell Tom Hanks that it will be "2 weeks" to finish his house!

What a mess!

Mallory went back to work and I get to watch Layten and his new little brother Aven! Such a sweet little baby!

Universal Studios Florida

The Monday after school was out for the summer, Hayleigh, Kirsten, and I went to my Aunt Judy's in Florida. We took a drive around her neighborhood the first night and stopped at the beach.

Aunt Judy was a librarian and loves Harry Potter, so she invited us to go to Universal Studios with her. It was a lot of fun! But, MAN Florida is hot in the summer! I'd love to go again, but maybe in January!

My honest review of Universal is that it doesn't even come close to Disney! I personally think that Disney would've done a much better job with a Harry Potter themed area in their park. The food was ho-hum and expensive. The souvenirs were expensive. 3 of the rides in Harry Potter are thrill type rides; definitely not for a broad range of ages. The Hogwarts Express was ok - but I'd rather look at the real outside instead of a movie in the window! I am pretty sure that if you are visiting just to see Harry Potter, you can do it in one day. And do it when it's cooler for heaven's sake!

Kirsten in the Goal??

Kirsten played keeper for East Iredell Middle for the spring season. She wasn't really thrilled about doing it....but she did ok. Looks like such a big goal to defend for such a little girl!

Hayleigh's Senior Photos

No, I can't believe Hayleigh is a senior! Here's her first day of kindergarten photos too!
(pretty sure she had no idea she could get these boys to do whatever she asked them to do!)

And now there's only 2 weeks left until she's a grad!

Hayleigh had enough credits to take advantage of early graduation in January, but she is still going to walk and receive her diploma in June. We took some photos to use for her graduation announcement, but we're hoping that the sun might come out and we can get some more!
Ready for the JROTC Ball... Corey is attending via photo.

The shop cat loves his photo taken. He is so weird.
