A beach day

We wanted to go to California to the beach before school started back. We headed down on a Monday, spent most of the day at the beach, went to downtown Disney and stayed overnight. We left the next morning and headed back to Vegas. It was a really quick beach trip but so worth it.

Living Life

I haven't had much to post about this month. Our lives are pretty uneventful for the most part. Last week, Lucas' brother and his wife went out of town with their kids. They invited us to house sit for them for 4 days. It was so nice of them to open their home to us. They have a beautiful home and an awesome pool. The kids were in heaven and we spent most of our days swimming. It was a nice little break from our normal routine. My sister and her family usually go to Florida for the month of August to visit her in-laws. She also asked us to house sit and use her pool. Needless to say, we are very spoiled and are really enjoying this summer. We went to the lake with Lucas' brother Jon and his family a few weeks ago. It was so fun to spend that time with the cousins and get out on the lake. When we docked, Lucas and I jumped out with Tyrone and Niamh. We left Gavin on the boat with my sister-in-law Rachelle and her kids while we went to get our car. Tyrone was very concerned and kept asking where Gavin was. Lucas thought it was funny to tell Tyrone that we had thrown Gavin in the lake and that he was gone. Tyrone burst into tears and was unconsolable until he actually saw Gavin. It was so sweet and heart breaking at the same time. Gavin & Tyrone have been fighting like dogs for the past few weeks. I am really looking forward to when school starts back, but it warmed my heart to see how much Tyrone loves his brother. He looks up to Gavin so much and it brings me such joy to see how close they are.
