 Our house was right in the path of the total Eclipse. It was pretty awesome to see! It got dark enough that the street lights came on. So strange! We live in a beautiful world.

11 Years as the Walter Family

 Jon and I were pretty mellow for our anniversary this year. Dinner and movie, but still nice to just be together. And right around our big day we took the kids to a movie all together. We were shocked that all 3 actually watched the entire movie! Who knew that after 11 years we would be back in SC and have 3 crazy girls. We aren't perfect, but I wouldn't want to run the crazy race of life with anyone else!

Abby's Birthday Party

 Sadly the morning of Abby's party I was not doing well. Jon stepped up and took most of the party decor in hand! His version of Peppa Pig's house was a little different than the original. Abby loved it though. She excitedly said "Dad! You built me Peppa's house!"

 All the credit for the pinata and cake goes to me. Poor, sad Peppa's. But the idea to hang the pinata from the tree with an electric cord is all Jon. Makes it look more like a Halloween decoration, but the kids loved it! And I am definitely not a cake decorator.
Happy birthday Miss Abby! We sure love you kiddo!

Sweet Summertime

 Summer 2017 was laid back, but ended with me getting pregnant sick again! So here is some of the highlight reel:

Jane wearing one of my favorite church dresses.
 And Jane was making strides in speech therapy and her sisters are big helpers teaching her words.

 For Shark Week on TV we checked out Shark books at the library and made Shark fact posters while watching shows.
 And Jane decided playing with actual blocks is boring compared to stacking canned goods.

These girls are so fun to watch together. They really are sweet sisters! And what is more fun than eating snacks in a giant box?

We did summer camps this summer. Kate did a basketball camp that she loved! And Abby did a Kindergarten boot camp to help her get ready for school to start.

Ohio Summer Trip

 As usual we went to Ohio for a summer trip! And again as usual Grandma and Grandpa were very popular. We went to Grandma's classroom one day to help her organize the room. Jane found a lethal weapon---a gigantic sharpie! And I got to spend some time with my Grandma!

 One of the main reasons for the trip was Jon remodeling Granny's kitchen. Here are the before pictures.

 Zach, Nathan and I all helped Jon. We got all this done in one full day!

 Uncle Zach and Aunt Paige are also super famous with my girls! We went to the Cincinnati Children's museum, and the girls loved every minute! I love seeing the wonder and joy on their faces in these pictures!

 Jon liked taking a nap at the museum too...

 And we met up with Nathan and Amy and their girls. We had lunch and played at their house. The girls had a blast! And Jane was a huge fan of Nathan. She kept telling him long stories. Too funny.
