our summer of three recap

This summer has been so different from most. We've had such a fun to-do list of family things to do, and we've had this sense of urgency to complete them! Not just because I might go into labor, but also because we want to soak up every last minute as a family of three. 

Spending time with Eliza in the NICU means spending time away from Jake. We'll miss the stew out of him and are thankful for all the fun things that we've done in the last few weeks to us over until all four of us are together for the first time. 

Coincidentally, Eliza's arrival is right in line with the first days of school around here. So even though we're ending the summer with a baby instead of a school supply list, its all coming to a close at about the same time anyway.

Remember that to-do list we made at the beginning of the summer?
Well, we crushed it!

We got to do some brand new things with Jake this summer that were especially fun. 

Like taking him to his first movie!

He was so excited to finally go to the "big theater" and for a three year old, he was on really great behavior! J.B. and I just loved watching his face light up and laugh during the movie. I'm excited that this is a new thing we can do with him in the future when kid movies come out!

He was also finally tall enough to ride the go karts! He's been asking to do this for forever it seems like, but our poor shorty never made the height requirements. 

Jake absolutely loves to soar around the go kart track! It's become a special Daddy/Jake thing this summer that has been so sweet to watch.

And we had some other new adventures, like checking out the local drive thru zoo. 
Yes! A drive thru zoo!! It's a "safari" of sorts that allows you buy food for the animals and then drive through the park and feed them. Everything from deer and buffalo to zebras and ostriches! 

It's such a neat place to see the animals roam around!

Here's a buffalo drooling down the side of my car {yuck!}. 

{And if you're a local, be sure to check out the Harmony Park Safari!}

All in all, its been a great summer with J.B. and Jake. 

Of course, as one season ends, I'm always ready for the next one. Halloween, pumpkins, hay rides, football, cooler weather and a BABY! 

This fall is already sounding pretty fantastic to me!
