August-The month of roadtrips

I swear we were on the road for the entire month of August.  I know that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it does hold a little truth!  We celebrated Craig's Grandpa's 90th Birthday the first weekend with a surprise birthday party/family reunion.  He was so surprised and was the life of the party!  He kept going until late into the evening!  It was so fun to see him.  I don't know if I've ever seen him smile so big!  He is going to be honored as part of the Veterans' Day Salute at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln for the Nebraska vs. Purdue game on November 1st.  The entire family is looking forward to that day!
Here's the whole Wortman family!  
The following weekend, Craig and I escaped on a getaway to Kansas City to celebrate our 6th Wedding Anniversary!  We sent the kids to my parents and we took off.  It was my first night(s) away from Cooper, and he decided to be a bear for Grandma and finally cut those first two teeth he'd been fighting for months!  Other than that the kids had a great time.  We did too!  We enjoyed some great food, did some shopping, and I got to attend my first MLB game and watch the Royals beat the SF Giants at Kauffman Stadium.  It also happened to be Husker night, so that was pretty fun!  We hadn't been on an actual date night since November, so it was long overdue and much enjoyed!
The next weekend, we loaded up the kids in the car and headed out to visit out to Cheyenne, Wyoming to visit some of our favorite friends and neighbors that moved out there about a year and half ago.  The kids did remarkably well in the car.  It was Coop's longest car ride to date, so I'd say he was a rockstar!  We had a lot of fun catching up with Craig and Katie and their puppy Capone!  We miss them so much, so it's always fun to see them!  They are the type of friends that we haven't known all that long (only about 4 years), but it seems like they are family!
After that trip, our traveling was done!  We spent the next weekend trying to take back our storage room that had completely gotten out of control over the summer.  We have been selling/getting rid of a lot of our baby stuff we have outgrown and the massive little girl wardrobe Delaney had.  I swear she had the most extensive wardrobe of any little girl!  Since she grew so fast, we literally had 6 years worth of clothes in storage for our 4-year-old.  I have sorted it all out, given some hand-me-downs to our cousin, and packed 2 totes full of the cutest favorites for (yet-to-be) baby girl cousins!  No pressure, Jess & Lauren!

We also bought a new truck that weekend!  6 months ago the total miles between our 2 vehicles was over 200k!!!  So, now we are back to 2 car payments again!  Not at all what I wanted to do, but since we send a lot of time on the road with the kiddos we needed vehicles that were more family friendly and reliable!  
Last weekend was Labor Day.  We actually stayed home and minimum plans, it I have to admit it was so nice!  August was lots of fun, but totally exhausting!  The Huskers kicked off their season with a big win, so that was the highlight!  Here are the kiddos in their Big Red gear!
