Summer time...It's in full swing

Summer has arrived..and wow!! it's a hot one. I'm really hoping that this summer won't be a repeat of last summer. Record breaking temperatures, consecutive 100 degree temperature days...at least I'm not pregnant this go around. :)

Tomorrow is our first day of Heat Advisory....from 11am-9pm. Now, what to do with 3 active kiddos in a small house?!?!


 The pictures posted are from our morning at the park. I love the wildflowers and Leia enjoyed her cold drink.

Vacation sneak peek!


We are home from vacation...Home Sweet Home.

We visited friends and family, made a day trip to Disney World, and visited 3 different beaches.




The one thing we didn't do is make a stop by Krispy Kreme for Hot Donuts.

1 more sleep

yes! that's right!!! 1 more sleep til we leave for Florida. 
We are planning on leaving out after Jed arrives home from work tomorrow afternoon/evening. 
Driving through the night seems to be the easiest option to having a successful 16 hour road trip with 3 children.

The kids have selected their travel movies. 
Snacks have been purchased.

8 months already?



Guess who's 8 months old?!
I cannot believe it...she has grown so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was complaining of the heat and my big pregnant belly. It's crazy how fast little ones grow.
Leia has started saying "Dada (it was first), Baba, Buba, and Mama" . She has learned to wave. She doesn't do it on impulse, but it still the cutest. She is starting to cruise the furniture. And she is crawling like a pro.

In 2 more sleeps, we are headed to Florida to see my family and take in the attractions!!



9 months difference

Here is a before and after picture of Dakota....1st day of Kindergarten and last day of Kindergarten.
