This month was crazy!
It of course started with the 4th and fireworks, swimming, BBQs and friends. We welcomed home my Dad who had been deployed for the last year and a half (he was in-charge of the fireworks!)
I attended the AAF board retreat. This is my 10th year of involvement. I'm doing something I've never done and letting go of things I've always done. Weird.
My work had a awesome event where we hired an artist to live paint a billboard atop a 3 foot lift. We had DJs, a food truck and an amazing piece of art being created in front of us. One of the coolest events we've ever done! Even if my ankles swelled to twice their size the next day.
I took a week of vacation the middle of the month and having 9 days with my girly was amazing. We spent a long weekend with my sister and littlest niece. There was swimming, late night conversations, card games, thrifting and lots of little play time.
Bret and I celebrated our nine year anniversary by taking the miss to Silverwood for the day. She hated the kids coaster but loved the adult river rapid boat ride called Thunder Canyon. Both the train and magic shows were a big hit as well. I can't think of a better way to celebrate our marriage. We are now accumulating more time married then dating.
While on vacation I learned that Global won the Credit Union Executive Society's Brand of the Year award! This is a national honor and extremely cool and humbling. I was blown away.
I ended the month by getting a new tattoo on my shoulder of 3 aster flowers. Asters are the September birth flower and I have one for each of us now. It took 4 hours, hurt and is so very pretty.
On to flower girls, Seattle and Jack...
