Americana

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July.  Nothing better than a three day weekend, except maybe a four day weekend, but we'll take what we can get!

On Friday we headed to visit with our nieces. The weather was gorgeous, despite forgetting to pack our swimsuits, thankfully having only nieces means plenty of extras to go around.  The girls had a blast playing on the swing set, the baby pools, and slip n' slide.  Some grilled up lunch and ice cream cake for the girls' uncle's birthday made it the perfect summer day and we were all sad to leave.

The actual Fourth of July was a bit of a bust weather wise.  We tried to hit up a favorite playground early in the morning, but it started to rain when we got there.  We came back and Nanny came over for brunch, after just hanging around the rest of the day we headed over to our friends' for dinner and had a great time.  The kids played in the rain, we had a fantastic meal, and we let the kids all stay up past their bedtimes.  We headed home around 9 and had the kids tucked in before the fireworks, which we were surprised they still had considering the weather.  Maybe next year will be the year!

Now that we are in the official thick of summer, it feels like the clock is ticking to complete more of those summer bucket list items.  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

  2. What a fun weekend despite the rain! And they are only 2 months apart?! That is crazy... They clearly didn't get the same genes ;).

  3. It's all Ashlynn, she's the tiniest 3 year old. She was born early and only 17 1/4" at birth, she gained like 11" her first year, which was more than Kenley, but was still smaller than K at one year. It's always funny for me to see her with other 3 year olds because her height seems normal to me, then I realize how tiny she is! (not that her genes help, I'm 5'2")
