{Our first Ranger game at the new Globelife field}

We finally got to see the new Globelife Field and we were impressed!!  Nathan scored some awesome tickets from work for the three of us. We were so excited to go! 

{Waterhose fun}

 Texas summers are nothing less than brutal! Unless you're near a body of water, they are just miserable! One of Mason's favorite things to do is to jump on the trampoline while playing with the water hose. I couldn't resist taking some fun photos of him. 

{Breakfast in Bishop Arts}

 This is my 8th (glorious) year to get to work from home! Since we started working from home, my coworkers and I meet every few months for a breakfast date. We catch up about projects we are working on as well as all of our personal lives. It's such a great time to spend with them. We normally meet in Bishop Arts and I love it. There are so many neat homes, businesses, and murals. I couldn't pass up an opportunity for some pictures. 

{Weekend Wrap-up // Movies, Benefit with the Jeep Club, Church, Coop work}

 I've been so busy catching up on the blog (since St Patrick's Day) but I wanted to post something a little more recent. A weekend wrap-up! It used to be a common thing around here and I miss posting a little of our day-to-day. I love weekends with my favorite people! 

{A chicken update // All chickens are named}

 I have finally named all of our chickens!! I've had a list of names in my phone for the longest time, but have been waiting to learn their personalities more before assigning them to the chickens! It's been so much fun to watch them grow and watch their little personalities develop! So, without further ado, here's our chickens by name! 

{Church with our Jeep family}

 Several members of our Jeep family have recently started attending our church and it has been so amazing!! We love having them there. It makes Sundays that much sweeter!! 

{A sweet day with the nephews}

 Nathan's mom had the boys on Saturday and brought them over to visit. We just so happened to be outside working on the chicken coop and they wanted to help! They are the cutest little farmers ever. We had such a sweet time with our nephews! 

{Christmas in July Event with Wicked Trendz}

 Our local Jeep club was invited out to be a part of a benefit for a children's home. Nathan, Mason, and I were so fortunate to be able to be a part of it. It was such a sweet thing to be a part of! Thousands of dollars as well as toys, diapers, paper goods, and supplies were donated. We had an amazing day with our Jeep family!

{Sunsets & Slurpees}

 One of my favorite things to do midweek is to chase the sunset with Nathan! We have a secret little spot out at the lake that we love to go to! On this particular night, we grabbed some Slurpees before driving out to the lake. It was the perfect little date with my favorite person! 

{Port Lavaca - the video}

As I do with most trips we take, here is the video from our camping trip to Port Lavaca. 


 On the fourth day of our Port Lavaca vacation, we decided to go back to Matagorda to spend the day at the beach. We enjoyed it the night before and knew we wanted to come back...with swimsuits this time. 

{Port Lavaca // Day 3 // Matagorda}

 On day three of our trip, the morning started out rainy. We played some card games in the camper until the rain passed. The crew was hungry for some seafood, so that landed us in Matagorda! There wasn't much in the small town our KOA was at, so a quick Internet search took us to a place called Waterfront in Matagorda. 

{Port Lavaca // Day 2 // Magnolia Beach, Casa Jalisco, Snow Cones, 4th of July Festivities}

 On day 2 of our Port Lavaca camping trip, we decided to hit up the beach. We searched a couple that were close and decided on Magnolia Beach. This was our first time in this area, so we were not too familiar with the nearby beaches. Magnolia sounded like it would be nice...

{Port Lavaca // Day 1 // KOA, Swimming & Danny's Seafood House}

 Nate's parents booked a camping trip for the 4th of July weekend down in Port Lavaca, TX. Some good family friends of ours joined us as well. Nate's parents, Ty & Michelle got there on Thursday afternoon and we met them there that evening. Nate worked a half day and I worked until 4pm. We were packed and ready to go the minute I got off work!

{Mason // First Midweek at Church}

 Mason got to attend his first ever Midweek on Wednesday! Midweek is for 6th - 12th graders only and they meet on Wednesdays at our church. They have all kinds of activities for the kids, worship, a sermon, and small groups! It's such an amazing night for these youth.
