scenes from our August

 Peanut Butter Cup rice krispy treats. Oh man. These are way too delicious. 
And I wonder why I'm having such a hard time losing the baby weight this time....

 We were meaning to make these for Nick's birthday party, but it didn't get done until the next week. Homemade lego fruit snacks--very fun, but very sticky. Like, tear the skin off your lips sticky. Definitely going to have to try these again and figure out what I did wrong.

 It's a rhinoceros. Out of pretzels. 
Just because little boys are the coolest.

My sweet baby modeling the adorable tie sent to us by the ever lovely Katie of Chintz Petite. He was oh so cute, and I just couldn't help but laugh every time I looked at him....he did sort of remind me of a used car salesman with the blue polo and tie combo...

 I got to help my brother by taking a few newborn shots of his sweet Avery. 

 This boy looooves bathtime. And I wish I'd worn a poncho every single time. 
He splashes. I'm pretty sure I end up more wet than him.

 Took the kids to the Museum of Natural Curiosity last week (hooray for school being back in session! The museum was practically empty!)
I'm always surprised at how exhausting it is to follow them around the museum. I kept looking at my phone, thinking, surely it's been like three hours, only to find we'd been there for merely 45 minutes.  By the time we were done, we were all more than a little tired. (aka the three-year-old screamed at me the whole drive home)
But my favorite moment? Watching Nick be brave enough to creep across the rope bridge for the first time and hearing him stop in the middle and shout to no one in particular,
"I'm a BIG boy!"

So awesome.

 We held a Back-to-School feast for the kids.
I kept it simple, but we ate by candlelight and talked about learning and making friends and being brave and kind.
Then we finished with brownies and ice cream with a beautiful rainbow backdrop.

And finally, we've grown up and bought our own sofa set. For the new house, but we (mostly just me) were too excited to wait until we move. I'm in love with them.
And wishing we'd gotten rid of that behemoth microfiber sectional sooner. 

I can't believe we're into September already.
The leaves are starting to change up high on the mountains, and oh I just can't wait--fall is the best!
