The kids went back to school last week after a fun-filled summer. Colt is starting 1st grade, Sadie K-4 (still 2 years from Kindergarten), and Finley is moving up to Toddler 1. They were all very excited to go to their new classes. Check out the pics!

This summer marked not only Dad's 80th Birthday, but also Mom & Dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary. We had a huge Stabler gathering to celebrate the occasion.

Colt and I took a boy's trip to Charlotte, NC over the weekend to watch German super-team Bayern Munich's soccer game in the International Champion's Cup. We drove up Friday to attend a semi-private practice session - there were lots of kids there but Colt fought hard to get his jersey autographed after practice and ended up with one of the star players - David Alaba - signing his jersey. After the practice we saw Charlotte's minor league baseball team, the Knights, play. On Saturday, we went to Discovery Place, the local children's museum, before watching the big game. On Sunday, we rode the streetcar before heading back to Alabama.
It was a great getaway and Colt thinks we should do a guy's trip 3 times a year now. While we wait for Susan to sign off on that, take a look at our pics from the weekend.

We made our annual trip to Seacrest Beach last week and had a great trip. We spent the week going back and forth between the condo and the beach, with only one outing to Panama City's Shipwreck Island Water Park. It was our first trip to the water park and we had a blast! We didn't get the annual family beach pic this year but considered ourselves lucky to get one with all 3 kids looking at the camera! Check out the pics!

While in Columbus, Colt and I made the short trip down to Plains, GA, to attend former President Carter's Sunday School class. We arrived just after 7am for the 10am class, and just barely got into the sanctuary. We were seated in the choir loft just behind where President Carter stood. Security was tight and we were all screened by the Secret Service as we entered. One of the agents gave Colt a Secret Service pin, which he is quite proud of. After the service, the Carter's stayed after to take photographs and we were able to get a picture with the former president. A very cool experience!
