Summer Lovin' 2014, Part 1

Good Summer morning to ya!
I am entitling this post "Part 1", because I can be sure there will be more summer lovin' posts to follow! Summers are just made for lovin' anyway, right? 

We have some exciting family news on the horizon (no, I'm not pregnant), but we are looking forward to sharing that soon. Yay!

For now though, here are a few things we love from our summer.

1. Pool parties. Bella says that in order for it to constitute a "pool party" there must be music and popsicles. I say that a pool party just means having some fun in the pool, and friends make it even better! 

2. Quiet jammie-clad mornings playing games with siblings. I love these little loves, and their precious little hearts. 

3. Four Egg Days. We usually average about three eggs a day, so when all the girls are cookin on any one day, it's a "four egg day" celebration! Thank you ladies!





4.  Trips to the Beach! Oh how we love going to the beach. 

But it's not nearly as exciting when it's dead!

Some added unexpected fun in our day was running into two different families of friends.

5. Sidewalk chalk mermaids and front yard playing. On a funny note, my cousin Chelsea asked me "Is it bad that I don't want to play freeze tag right after we eat dinner?". Uhhh, no. I never want to play freeze tag.

6. Waterfront Melbourne Fireworks. This 4th of July, the fireworks were postponed a bit due to rain. We got the kids dressed in jamas, and headed to the riverfront to watch them.

 7. Family Pictures. The evening before my sweet cousin went back to Pennsylvania, we managed to snap a few pictures of all of us together. I am so thankful for the time we were able to spend with her while she was here.

This summer has been fast and furious, full of fun and activities, but also speckled with purposeful moments of quiet and calm, and grocery shopping... It's been so good, and we have so much to be thankful for.
