Summer lovin' and lovin' summer!

Long time no blog! It's not that I am lacking things to blog about,but it seems like every time I sit down to update some other fun opportunity/activity drags me away from the computer. Much more fun/important to live life than blog about it!
So far the Conn Conn's have had a fantastic summer! We started our summer with a FANTASTIC trip to the Oregon Coast. It was just the 5 of us, and we had SO much fun together! We were able to celebrate Trev's b-day on our way there at Benihana (kids loved it). We spent most of our time on the beach, we also visited an aquarium, shopped, spent a lot of time in the hot tub, of course ate at Mo's, ate LOTS of saltwater taffy, stayed up late every night, and slept in every a.m. Big Daddy did a great job of finding us a great condo to stay in!
Upon arriving back home we hit the ground running! We celebrated Trev's b-day w/ friends at the pool. All 3 kids have had the opportunity to spend a few days in Baker w/ my family one at a time. They have had so much fun and gotten incredibly spoiled. It is really different to only have 2 kids at home! I missed them like crazy, but am so glad they each got a little alone time w/ G-ma Kiki and Papa.
I have to say that I love every minute of summer....bbq's w/ friends, daily adventures to our pool, free movies @ Edwards, family dinners on our new patio, watching Chris play baseball, attending God and Country and listening to Big Daddy sing, Bible Study w/ the girls, impromptu trips to Baker and McCall, boating w/ Papa and G-Ma Kiki, Pedi/Mani w/ my girl, floating the Boise River, our yearly camping trip w/ the Harrington's, and the list goes on. Mostly I just love our summer lack of schedule. I love that my kids can stay up late so we can hang out longer, and then they sleep in each a.m. I love that we get to be together ALL DAY!
We are making the most of everyday! We are anticipating our life is in for a BIG change HOPEFULLY in the very near future! As most of you know we are STILL in a holding pattern. Please continue to pray for us! I am signing off to hit the pool!
