Brooks Turns 8!

This year Brooks chose an old fave. Look at this adorable comparison from 5 years ago, when he chose the same cereal. This is the same size bag, look at how much he's grown!

We had a big backyard barbecue - sort of a combo party for Brooks, and one of our military friends who just came home that very same morning. Welcome home! The invited guests were all the "Spartan racers"/workout group. We had quite a crowd - 25 people not including ourselves!

We are so grateful for a great outdoor space with this house. We had cornhole, frisbee golf, crokinole set up on the screened in porch, and our new trampoline, and then a bonfire - fun for everyone and plenty of space!

Oh, and a little canoeing! This is what happens when grown men throw frisbee's waaaay too hard and they end up in the middle of the lake. You'd think it would be a kid to do this, but no... haha! Actually, they likely did it on purpose just to give us the fun of retrieving it!

Frisbee golf!

We had a bunch of pallets to burn, so we had a HUGE bonfire. I think we burned through at least 10 pallets!

Our brand new summer time family gift - a trampoline! We had a very old handmedown one that couldn't survive the move to Willow house, and we've been saving ever since to get another one! Thanks to a timely online sale, we were able to get it in time for the party!

We ate burgers, hot dogs, the kids all played (and played and played!) and we had a really great time together!
