I realized this week that summer is winding down and I haven't shared much about what we've been up to. We've really had such a wonderful time. I've gotten to spend a good bit of time with the kids and we've had as much fun as we can in our days together. Liam has grown so much. It's blowing my mind that he isn't a baby anymore... For real. 
Anne has been such a helper and always quick to share her fun ideas. 
To sum this summer up, we spent a week CAMPING at Grayton Beach in June. That's something I can check off my list of things to do. I definitely would love to do it again, just not during the heat of summer! 
We've also been selling lots of blueberry lemonade at the farmers market with the Edward's!
And this month I've been teaching a sewing class...and it's been so fun to see people getting excited about making things! We're having the best time!
And we are gonna pack a few more things in these last couple of weeks before school starts!! Next week we're planning a trip to the watermark and a shopping day with Anne!

We spent our weekend mostly relaxing, which was obviously much needed.  We cooked out and watched the fireworks from Pinehurst Park Friday night with friends.  The kids had such a great time!  Firework night in the park will forever remind me of the July 4th scene in The Sandlot.  It's kind of magical.
Thanks for this photo Brooke!

A storm rolled in on Saturday and it felt impossible to get out of the house.  So I finished up watching the last season of Hart of Dixie and then moved right along to Gilmore Girls.  It was divine.
I'm thankful for a rainy weekend watching too much TV and getting in lots of snuggles with my sweet family!

I didn't mean to not blog for so long...it's funny how the more time that passed the harder it was to make this post happen.  So many things have been changing around here and to be honest there has been very little down time.  I have officially changed careers and am now working at Southern Antiques.  One of the perks is that it's only a block from our loft and full of beautiful things!  

It's such a fun environment and I get to see lots of faces everyday!
Hopefully I will be better at blogging as I get settled into our new routine.  I definitely miss sharing our life in this space.

It has been a super busy few weeks.  Our school's May Day celebration is tonight and that means lots of extra practices.  On top of that, I'm the 6th grade (graduating class) teacher so we have lots of extra things we're responsible for.  All that being said, I totally forgot to pick up Anne's artwork for Day in the Park tomorrow.  Thankfully we live in a small town with the BEST people.  Mrs. Beth from the Frame Shop agreed to meet me early this morning to pick it up before school.  It's times like these that really make me glad we live in a place like Laurel.
And tomorrow we're headed to the beach to relax a few days before going to a funeral for Michael's grandmother.  She was such a beautiful woman and we're sad to have to say good bye.
I hope you all have a great weekend enjoying this gorgeous weather!

We had one of the best times this weekend.  Michael had reached a little break in his paper so we got to spend some much needed family time together!  The weather was also nice and Liam got to join Anne in the Easter egg hunt this year!  He would squeal every time he spotted an egg...talk about cute!!!

Fincher decided getting pushed in the swing was a lot more fun than running around looking for eggs!

Gran is such a beautiful lady.  I'm thankful to still have grandparents (even if they're biologically Michael's!)  She absolutely lights up when she gets to see these babies, and getting to watch them hunt eggs and play in the yard was the highlight of the day.
Once all the eggs were found, it was down to the pond to feed Dink's fish.  The kids love doing this!
I know they'll always have sweet memories of going to Gran and Dink's house, and that make me so happy!

Every holiday gets more and more fun with these kiddos!  I hope your Easter was filled with fun and family as well.
