What's Up Wednesday

 Good morning and happy What's Up Wednesday! Is anyone else really sad that June is coming to an end? I LOVE summer. I love spending our days by the pool, going to the beach, and playing outside for countless hours. I love the extra hours of sunlight and watching the kids chase lightning bugs. How is this summer flying by so quickly? Time needs to slow down!

Today I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. Let's get to it!

A Summertime Day In The Life

Good morning and happy Friday! About a month ago I shared what a typical day looks like around here on a Saturday (post here), but today I wanted to share a typical summertime weekday. There is just something so fascinating to me about people's day to day lives.. apparently I'm not alone! So grab a cup of coffee and come see what a typical summer day looks like for us around here!

Starting at 4:30 am...

Hilton Head Recap Part 2

 Hello again! Time to finish up the rest of our beach recap. If you missed it, I recapped the beginning of the trip on Monday. Right around where I left off, Devin had to leave us to head back to work and my older sister and her family had to head back before they left for a camping trip out West. So now it was just the kids & I, my parents and my younger sister holding down the fort.

Hilton Head Recap Part 1

 Hello there! I took last week off while we were at the beach and it feels good to be back. We had the most wonderful time at the beach. While I can't exactly say taking two young kids to the beach was a relaxing trip, it was a lot of FUN! Before we left Devin asked me "what are you most looking forward to about the beach trip?" and I said "I can't wait to wear the kiddos out at the beach and pool all morning, and then for them to take killer naps in the afternoon". I am happy to report back that that was exactly what our trip looked like (most days). Most of our days started like this:

Hello Hello! I hope you have all had a good week! Dev had a work trip in Denver but came home last night and today we are headed to the beach-- woohoo! A majority of our week was spent by the pool, which is a perfect week if you ask me! Today I have a random hodgepodge of favorite things to share.

This is one of those situations where every day leading up to it is going to feel like an eternity. Not only that but Devin has a work trip out of town this week AND tomorrow is my birthday-- woohoo! This week is going to be nutty-- but in a good way!

Today I am just sharing a few fun and random things we've been up to.

What I Read: May

 Good morning friends! I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend! We had a good mix of family time, friend time, and some relaxation. Now back to busy life 😀. Gymnastics camp started this week and Lily Grace is LOVING it! She told me she got to walk on the balance beam, jump on the big trampoline, and go in the foam pit. It makes me happy to see her so happy! It also gives Liam and I a chance to have some more one-on-one time, which I know he loves. 💕

This month I was able to get 3 books in. One I did not really like, one was good, and one was VERY good! Let's have a look, shall we?
