Labor Day at Smith Lake

Maggie and Will broke in their new lakehouse on Labor Day weekend.
Trip's birthday celebration was full of family fun. We went boat riding, walking, and had a bonfire with roasted marshmallows.

Zada's family stopped by on their way home to Hernando. We love them even if they always try to teach my kids "Hotty Toddy!"

I am learning as I go with raising boys. Apparently going potty outdoors is a rite of passage.

The Alabama State Fair

Micah's favorite part was popping balloons with darts to win a prize. He has been sleeping with his frog (he named it "SKOCK") every night since He really thought he was driving this dragon

Feeding the elephant. "His trunk is nasty momma"

vacation and July 4th

working hard in the sand
All the Burrises traveled to Pine mountain, GA to see Callaway Gardens and other local attractions in mid-July. We went to this drive through petting zoo that had zebras, giraffes, pigs, deer, bulls, buffalo, and lots more. My dad drove this zebra striped van through the trail and we had feed to give the animals. They walked right up to the van and would stick their heads in the windows. We were freaked out by some of the bigger animals, but had alot of fun.

Sam's favorite part about our cabin (Micah called it "the cabinet"was climbing the stairs over and over again

we all got freaked out by this one animal, especially me when he stuck his long tongue with slobber on it at me for food, ugh!
