I am so, so thankful I got pregnant with Tess when I did. Being pregnant with Casey was SO fun and having our babies so close together has been great! I also think it’s great that Carter is a little older than Tess. I like that both Casey and I go to each other for help and advice and I think if he was younger that I wouldn’t have as many opportunities to learn from her as I do! First time moms just have that A game ya know? She always knows the most up-to-date stuff and I appreciate that…with this being my third it’s so easy to get trapped in feeling like you “know it all” when really SO much changes in the world of babies!!!

Now that Tess is a little older and both she and Carter are able to go and do more and be more flexible I am SO excited to FINALLY get back to hanging out with Casey and Jordan on a more regular basis! I feel like I don’t even know Jordan anymore b/c when I do get to see one of them its, of course, Casey πŸ™‚ 

One nice Saturday afternoon our families went down to our neighborhood park and playground. We got Subway and had a picnic dinner and the kids played. It was beautiful weather and a great time! Tess got to go down a slide for the first time πŸ™‚

Not too sure if she liked it?

I think this may have been Carter’s first time too!

Sweet cousins!

Kye just recently, like he was 5 years old, learned how to swing himself. Britt just turned 3 and she’s working hard to master the skill!

Best Big Brother!

Can you tell it was windy? Ha!

We had a great day at the park together and later that week Casey and Carter came for a sleep over at our house πŸ™‚ Jordan and Zach both were gone for the night for work and Casey and I sleep better when we aren’t solo! We got brave and took all 4 kids to Chick-Fil-A Family Night! 

First time eating at a restaurant πŸ™‚

Recently I found a new obsession…Steak and Shake Fry Seasoning. Have you tried it? OMG GAME CHANGER! ha! I have never been a big fan of CFA fries so I brought along my new favorite seasoning πŸ˜‰ I sent Zach a pic as I knew he’d appreciate it!

First time meeting the cow! She did great πŸ™‚

Bathing 4 kids at once it tricky…getting a pic of 4 kids in a tub while also covering up all “the areas” is almost impossible! We made it happen though πŸ™‚

I’m so thankful for the amazing in-laws I’ve been blessed with! It’s crazy to think that Casey and I originally did not mesh well. We’ve come so far, for sure! It’s so great that we are able to live in the same town as Zach’s whole family and that our babies will grow up being close to so much of their extended family!
