Summer is basically here, the girls had their last day of school this past Friday!! So bring on the pool days, summer projects, silly faces and cookouts!

The girls have been enjoying their week home with daddy this week building a headboard, lounging by the pool, spending time here and here – and loving summer kick off!

Rylee has suddenly become camera shy, so capturing her lately has been a chore and a fight I’m not willing to battle.

Reese on the other hand, could have her picture made all day, everyday.

Mike – well, it’s always been a battle to get him on the camera.

I swear one day, they will appreciate my “snap happy, just one more, come on, just smile” spirit!

How are you spending your summer? We have several beach days planned, a beach trip, carowinds, pool days, cookouts, baby shower, date nights, and lots of family time planned – with lots of yummy food. Because who doesn’t love summer food?!


Rylee turns 8!!

Our beautiful girl Rylee turned 8! All this princess wanted was a new brother or sister – so we surprised her with the good news… See her reaction here..

Rylee celebrated with a birthday party at the bowling alley and a sleepover with some of her girl pals.

We took her out for her favorite dinner, Mexican food and of course dessert!

Happy Birthday to our oldest baby! Hard to believe this blog was created when she was 6 months old!!
