Happy Monday, friends! Here is a run-down of our week... 

We LOVE July 4th and were so excited to be home for the first time in three years. 

After a morning parading around the neighborhood, we hosted a simple celebration at our house before watching the fireworks and calling it a night. 

Also - Hope managed to snap this shot of me and Holly and I love it!

On Tuesday morning, we were back with the McBerty's and headed to Franklin to celebrate the one year anniversary of Owen and Ceme. Such a fun morning filled with shopping (including some MAJOR discounts), FREE margaritas and tacos!!!

Yep. Perfect day. 

We aren't just all play and no work around here - this girl has been practicing her writing + Spanish. So proud of her!

I gave a quick little snapchat tutorial via text to my dear friend, Jenn. Y'all. I hate to admit this. But.

My name is Katy.
I am 37 years old.
I LOVE Snapchat.

If you want funny videos, random pics, and witty captions - then don't follow me. BUT if you want the every day life of a momma and 3 precious kids, you can find me @katygking. 

On Wednesday we got a vision from our frousins.

That's friends that are basically cousins. And I just made that word up. My kiddos ADORE Karli and Cooper and had the best time hanging at the pool. They are a ferocious crew if you can't tell. 

It works out well that they like each other so much because I just so happen to ADORE their momma. You've heard me gush all about her recently when I talked about my tribe

We ended our sweet little visit Finding Dory. 

Spoiler alert - LAUGHING TEARS. Jenni and I were easily the loudest ones in the theater. 

The kids and I were headed to meet Ryan for a quick weekend trip to Galveston and this arrived - isn't it the greatest? I can't WAIT to try it out. Ryan sure does know the way to my heart. 


By Thursday night, this was my view. 

Friday we spent the day at Moody Gardens in Galveston. We figured out it was actually more economical for us to go ahead and by the annual family membership. Friday had us exploring the ocean... 

Radley was in HEAVEN. They had TONS of sharks and he told us about each and every one. This kid just never ceases to amaze me. 

We went to "Palm Beach" that afternoon and I was so soaked I didn't want to put my cute sandals back on, so I stole Radley's flip flops. He's 8. How are his feet my size. 

Saturday was our beach day - and they couldn't have loved it more. 

And neither could we. 

Also. This. 

Seriously the greatest day with my people. 

And if all that wasn't enough fun - we headed back to Moody Gardens for the rain forest. 

Where we got up close and personal with some of the animals.


And I fell even more in0love with these ringlets. Humidity for the win.

We also managed to work in Palm Beach one more time and a fun live show about birds. Needless to say, the his and hers double shot iced espressos were a necessity for the drive back. 

And that's us in an instant!

Trying something new and linking up with these fun blogs today!
