The First Day of Summer

Here it is almost the end of July and I am WAY behind on blogging.  Guess that is to be expected!  We decided to start a new tradition this year to celebrate the first day of summer.  We need something positive to focus on on this day, so celebrate we did!  Olive got new sidewalk chalk and bubbles to play with which she loved! Nora Kate watched from the shade of the umbrella.
 Did I mention they were colored bubbles?
 We told Olive since she is so big, she was going to get to stay up until after dark to watch fireflies!  We decided smores were a necessary part of the celebration too!

 And she actually tried it all together!!! And I got to finish it! Yum!
 Then we snuggled up to watch fireflies!
Here's to summer!

First Swim of the Season!

Our sweet friends the Berryhills are moving to Colorado.  We had them over to Pop's on Father's Day so we could enjoy some time together before they left and let the kiddos swim!  This was Nora Kate's first time to go swimming and she was a fan!  
But when you look this cute, how could you not love swimming? 
 The water was a little chilly, but she didn't seem to mind!  In fact, she fell asleep!
 I was curious to see how Olive would be in the water after finally making such big strides last year.  It took her a few minutes, but before long she was jumping off the diving board with Alden.

 Yeah sister!
 Daddy and his girls!
We had a great time and look forward to many more afternoons at the pool!
