Branson Vacation

For the last week we have been in Branson with Zack's parents, his brother Sean, and his brother's wife Heidi...the first time in Branson for all of us.  It was a fantastic vacation with a lot packed into one week.  Spending time with family on a fun trip was great!

Here are some highlights...

Off to the musical Jonah and for pizza afterwards

Golf for Babies KC - It's Not Too Late!

I should have made a post about this sooner than now, but on Monday, August 4th our family's foundation, FORE! Preemies Foundation, will be holding the 3rd annual Golf for Babies golf outing.  It is not too late to participate as a golfer or contribute in any way.  Check out www.forepreemies.com for more information or to pass on to any friends!  Feel free to contact Zack or me if you have questions or want to get involved!!!





As you can see above, the girls are brushing up on their golfing skills.  They don't want to show off this year so they will make an appearance at the event but won't be participating in the golf!

The girls have also been playing with neighbors in the backyards a lot and even had their first shaved ice.  Surprisingly, they weren't big fans.  Go figure!

Happy 4th of July

We spent the 4th of July weekend at Holiday Lake in Brooklyn, IA at the lake house with Grammy and Larry.  We had a blast going to the playground, taking boat rides, swimming, playing in the sand at the beach, making s'mores, and on and on!













We also don't want to forget about the fun time we had with our friends the Proctors when they came through KC on their way to the Ozarks.  Here is breakfast time with the girls!  Ava and Reese couldn't get enough of Evie and Luci!
