summer fun, happens so fast.

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

My mind is already transitioning to fall (what is it about the fourth of July that does that to a person?), so I thought I would take a moment to reflect on our summer so far.

S2 took swim lessons and she's like a little fish.  She was definitely the best kicker in the class and never wanted to get out of the pool.

I've shared my love of Starbucks with her.  Don't worry, she mostly just drinks the whipped cream but she's not opposed to any sort of coffee drink.  Girl after my own heart.

We celebrated S1's birthday with dinner and cupcakes on the deck.  I snapped this shot and wondered when, exactly, I got all those eye wrinkles.

S2 made the cutest little model in some tights for my work.  If you're online shopping for toddler girls' tights, it might just be S2's legs you're seeing. ;)

S1 and I went to Disneyland and California Adventure in May.  We left S2 at home.  Ha!  It was so much fun but I have to say, I prefer the World to the Land.  Less than 2 months until S2's first trip to Disney World!

S2 is a daddy's girl.  She's always saying "where my daddy go?" when he's not in the same room as her.  It's adorable.

She loves to help me with the gardening.  It's been so hot the past few weeks that we've spent our afternoons inside (hence why my hydrangeas are suffering from lack of water), but I can't wait until this crazy heat breaks and we can spend more time outside again.

Yep, this is my girl in a nutshell:

Her favorite activity always involves something with a steering wheel.

Or if a cookie is involved, she's totally game.

I've tried to be intentional about getting her into the water this summer. It's not something that comes naturally to us. As in, before we had her, we could go a whole summer without getting into a pool. Not that we don't love to swim, we're just more of go-and-do people than lounge-and-swim people. Living near a body of water means it's important that this chick learns to tread water!

I was sitting on the chair next to her with my legs crossed and I looked over and...


Another shot of us by the pool...

...and on a boat.

Different boat day. This was on July 4th and my feet stayed propped up like this for oh, 5 seconds. Talk about seeing someone's highlight reel. ha.

Probably my favorite shot so far this summer is this one. I don't know what we did before this girl came into the world.

Okay, we've been swimming more than I even remembered this summer!  She gets her curlicues from me.

This never happens anymore, so when she fell asleep in the car on the way back from Walmart and stayed asleep on me while we sat on the couch, I had to remember it.  With drool and all.

Oh! I'm on Snapchat!  @jennasnaps7

Hope your summer has been as fun as ours! xo
