July just kinda passed in a blur. It was the last month I would get to spend with my sister and her family so I think I had kinda conviced myself that the month would never end. But before I knew it, it was over and we were sending them off to Oklahoma. These last few years have been so much fun being so close to her. We are going to miss them but are also excited for their new adventure in life!
The next week we took off to Laramie for Caleb's baptism. I always dread getting in the car for the trip to Wyoming. I must be a pessimist. I am always expecting the worst. The kiddos always surprise me though. We usually have a few meltdowns but we always make it.
Aiden has a new obsession. Guns! I really struggle with it, but I think it is here to stay. He shoots his nerf and pop guns all day long. Tyler and grandma have been supplying him with guns and targets. Tyler had to go buy his own nerf gun because Aiden wouldn't ever let him have a turn. Now they have targets and stations. They go at it ever night. Grandma gave aiden this pop gun that we played with when I was a kid. I understand why she wanted it at my house and not hers. I have scratches and holes all over my walls and (sniffle, sniffle) on my new cabinets!
While in Wyoming, they had a nerf war (Picture Above). Aiden was in heaven. I think Tyler enjoyed it just as much. He insisted on wearing sunglasses even though it was indoors because that is what they do on TOP SHOT. He thought it was pretty neat.
