Nana and Grampa time

We've had some GREAT time with my Nana and Grampa Dennis!  Nana is SO sweet with the kids and thinks of the most FUN things to do.  She brought a 4th of July cake over to decorate with the kids.  Fun and delicious!! 

She also had the great idea to take the kids to Legoland. 
Mom, Nana and the kids had a VERY fun afternoon there.

(My Aunt Beth gave each kid a gift card to Walmart to pick out some things for traveling fun.  Jacob picked out a zoo lego set a lot like the one above!)
I'm SO thankful for the fun memories we're making this summer!!!

Fun mail

I've gotten some FUN mail recently!
One of my favorite things that I'm loving right now is Birchbox.  For $10/month you get a super-fun box in the mail each month full of beauty supply samples.  It's a blast!  Mom and I put together a little dream list of some of my favorite things I've tried from my boxes, and she bought us some fun stuff to share this summer.
A dear friend of mine started a business making coasters.  She gave me a set to take with me to remind me of my hometown here in Atlanta!  Aren't they adorable!?!

And I won a blog giveaway!!  After I got rid of so many of my art supplies, I won a box full of amazing products from one of my very favorite blogs!!!  WOOHOO!!

Chattanooga is one of my favorite places in the world!  I just love everything about it!  I think part of why my heart is so fond of that city is because it's where John and I did a lot of our dating.  Great memories!!  My Aunt Cathy (my mom's sister) and her girls live in TN, so they met us in Chattanooga for a wonderful adventure day.  Aunt Cat's 3 girls were flower girls in our wedding!!  Now they're so grown and beautiful!  (Nicole, we missed you!!!)

The highlight of our time was a train ride.
Watching a train go by...
Waiting for our train!!

Such a fun day!
