We started July off with a trip to Isle of Palms, SC with our friends Josh and Jenny. We had a great week at the beach, playing in the sand and doing lots of swimming!! Hannah and Ethan both just loved Josh and Jenny and spending time with them!!! Then a couple weeks later, we headed out to New Mexico for Matt's summer sales meeting at his company's headquarters. It's amazing how different the scenery was from anywhere I had ever been!!! The kids adjusted easily to the time change, and we had a great time! It was wonderful to finally meet everyone that Matt works with, and to spend time in a new place. Hannah had two pony rides and Ethan even got to sit on a pony for the first time!!! His company does as "company wide picnic" every year, where they rent out a ranch and have activities for everyone. This was probably the highlight of the trip. The kids just played non stop and Ethan absolutely LOVES horses!!! We also spent a little time in downtown Santa Fe which was very fun! The end of the month was busy with Hannah's second round of swim lessons, a trip to Lake Lanier, and a visit from my mom and all 4 nieces for a couple days! We loved it all, but were worn out after!!!!
