Summer Carnival

Our summer has been packed full of activity and last night was no exception. Despite being a crazy day, our evening was a perfect summer night. Mark’s sister & her kiddos are in town, so last night we all headed to a local summer carnival.

It was complete with a gymnastics(ish) show, a bounce house (my nemesis), food trucks and even a train ride! Just another great evening with the fam!

Oh How I Love the 4th

We had such a blast yesterday… despite the intense humidity and heat. We paraded in the morning, visited with some friends, then took the crazed kiddos home for nap.

Check out Hem’s dance moves! That boy loves to wiggle his rump! Haha

After all of the sun, we decided to switch up the plans from taking the kids to a party after nap to letting them nap late while I went to the party briefly with my neighbor.

The party was great, right on Lake Michigan! It would have been amazing for the kids and I started feeling guilty about changing the plans… until it started monsooning! My friend and I made it back to the car with only mild dampness, but the ride back home was a bit crazy.

I was happy to get home to the kiddos who were watching the Lion King!

Thankfully, the storm blew over and we were able to execute the final part of the plan: late night sparklers and smores with the kids. We had a great time!

Magic.

Weekend Snapshot

I have to get to bed, as Henry is already snoozing, but wanted to share some photos from our weekend! We took Henry to his first parade, which he slept through! 

And in full Charlotte fashion, the girl was totall straight-faced throughout the entire parade, until we got in the car and she was all smiles and chats about what we had just seen. Such a shy and timid little dear. 

Are these not two of the most sullen faces you’ve ever seen at a parade??

The dancing grannies (so silly)

Finally, some smiles!

After the parade, we dropped C off at my parents’ house so she could nap while we went to little Bailey’s first bday party with Henry!

C was excited to reunite with her brother!

The cutest little Henry pie in his denim romper. I could just eat him up.

Miss C was excited to head back to camp this morning.
Henry and Mommy snuggled at home… ALL day
