Catching up – June 2015

Keeping this short. Need to clean the kitchen and am procrastinating. Photos. Quick snippets. Here’s what we did this past month.


We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. This shot was taken by our nanny who took the kids out to the park while we went to a movie and lunch!


We have a massive sunflower growing! It’s tall. Really tall. See it over the car?

Some other things from the garden: Our baby watermelon, harvesting sunflower seeds and the result of the harvest and some of our grape tomatoes.


When it’s hot, you bust out the slip and slide!

Helping Daddy pull weeds… and apparently strangling our baby sister is on that list too. J/K!

M had soccer camp!

We got messy eating breakfast in the car.


We got in some park time.

And snuggles.

We had good and bad moments. Sometimes within minutes.


We sometimes even played together.


I took M to a movie, just the two of us.

We had an impromptu dinner at the beach.

We went to the aquarium to pet some snakes, sharks and stingrays.

We prayed, and prayed and prayed for our city. What a horrible tragedy. Nine lives lost in the name of hate. We are so proud that our city responded with love instead. #charlestonstrong

We picked peaches and blueberries at the local farm.

We announced Little Monster #4 (dubbed “nugget” by M) to the world! Yay! We’re due in January! More on all of that when I have a little more time.

We went to Kiawah with Daddy since he had never been and had a great day!IMG_9250

Baby bump alert!

We had friends visit and went to our local fireworks show the night before the 4th. That last photo makes me smile… it looks like music notes to me.

Then we went to the local show in the neighborhood on the 4th.

Brunch on Sunday was SO not healthy, but Oh.Em.Gee. delicious! I had French Toast that was probably 4 inches high, drizzled in Bourbon Maple Syrup. It was custardy and divine.

And of course, since we were downtown, a trip to the fountains was mandatory. I normally carry a change of clothes for the kids in the car, but of course since we had recently gone to the beach, I had not yet refilled my “go-pack”… so the kids rode home either naked or in a diaper. Gotta love some spontaneous mid-day fun though!

More to come in the next few days once I can get a handle on the house! Happy belated 4th to all!
