July 28th- My sweet friend Amy took these amazing maternity pictures to help build up her growing photography portfolio and I got some beautiful keepsake treasures to remember this last pregnancy of mine in return. I was a little nervous but so glad I did it and love that I will have these to remember forever. I am about 35 weeks along in these pictures. I can't believe we are soon to be a family of 7!

We couldn't end the summer without taking the kids to the Drive-in movies for the first time. We stocked up on popcorn and $1 store candy and went to see Disney's Inside Out. The kids loved piling in the back of the truck and watching a movie outside. We see many more family nights at the drive-ins in our future!!
July-24th-26th. Mark has been looking forward to this day for years! He has been so excited to finally take his son on his first backpacking trip. And this was a 25 mile backpacking trip over 3 days and 2 nights. Nothing short of easy and Zach did amazing and had a blast. A friend of Mark's, Josh Boyce joined them and they had a great time and took lots of amazing pics which I am grateful for. I'm sure this is the first of many more backpacking trips to come!
Our Clubhouse pool does a summer BBQ activity every summer and the kids love it! These are the only pics I took unfortunately. There is lots of food, bounce houses, balloons, games, rock climbing, and swimming. And of course the face painting which is the girls' favorite!
Love our small town of Lincoln!! It puts on the BEST 4th of July Parade and we love it every year! This year our big kids got to be in the parade on a float/trailer with the Primary children of our stake. They sang "Its a grand old Flag" and waved tons of flags. Super cute and fun for us to see them go by!
Fun with the neighbors before going to see the big fireworks show. Never a dull moment on this street and tons of crazy kids!
